NHL Network doubleheader highlights busy Saturday
There are a dozen games on Saturday's schedule, and the NHL Network will have two of the biggest ones for U.S. viewers.
There are a dozen games on Saturday's schedule, and the NHL Network will have two of the biggest ones for U.S. viewers.

The action starts at 3:30 p.m. ET with the first half of the network's doubleheader, a visit by the Montreal Canadiens to Los Angeles. The Canadiens are trying to avoid an 0-for-California trip after a 4-3 shootout loss in San Jose on Thursday; the Kings edged Florida 2-1 on the same night.

Canadian viewers can tune in to see the game on CBC and RDS.

The action then perks up with five games starting at 7 p.m. ET -- including the second half of the NHL Network doubleheader, a matchup between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins at TD Garden. It's the second half of a home-and-home series; the Bruins won the front end 6-3 in Toronto on Wednesday. As with the Canadiens-Kings game, Canadian viewers can tune in on CBC.

CBC will also air two other games regionally -- Ottawa at Washington, where the Caps are looking for their first win under new coach Dale Hunter, and New Jersey at Winnipeg. Also at 7, Pittsburgh visits Carolina, which is 0-2 under its new coach, Kirk Muller, and the New York Rangers, 5-3 winners at Carolina on Thursday, are at Tampa Bay.

Three more games get under way at 8 p.m. ET. Chicago visits St. Louis, Buffalo is at Nashville and Philadelphia pays a rare visit to Phoenix. At 8:30, the New York Islanders are in Dallas.

CBC completes its "Hockey Night in Canada" tripleheader at 10 p.m. ET when it airs the Flames-Oilers game from Edmonton. In the final game of the night, Florida is at San Jose for a 10:30 p.m. ET start.
Quote of the Day

They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.
