The surging Wings made it seven in a row on Friday by scoring three times in the first period and cruising to a 4-1 victory in Buffalo. The Avs are 4-3-0 as they enter the finale of an eight-game homestand after a 3-2 shootout victory against St. Louis on Friday.

The Wings-Avs contest is one of two that gets under way at 8 p.m. ET. In the other, Minnesota begins a five-game trip with a visit to Anaheim for the Ducks' second game under new coach Bruce Boudreau. They raced to a 3-0 lead against Philadelphia is Boudreau's debut on Friday night, only to lose 4-3 in overtime. The Wild beat New Jersey 4-2 on Friday.

An hour later, the Vancouver Canucks are home for a 9 p.m. ET meeting with Calgary. The Flames come to British Columbia after winning 5-3 in Edmonton on Saturday. The Canucks have had a couple of days off after Thursday's 6-5 home loss to Nashville.
Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
