Leafs-Flyers on NHL Network highlights busy Thursday

The Philadelphia Flyers and Toronto Maple Leafs will meet for the first time in more than three months when the Leafs come to the Wells Fargo Center in one of 10 games on Thursday's NHL schedule.

The Leafs and Flyers haven't played since Oct. 24, when the Flyers won 4-2 at home. Both teams are coming off disappointing defeats on Tuesday -- Philadelphia lost 1-0 in a shootout to the visiting New York Islanders, while the Leafs fell 2-1 at Winnipeg.

The NHL Network will air the game in the United States, beginning at 7 p.m. ET. Viewers in Canada can watch the game on TSN.

Five other games also begin at 7, all involving teams that played Tuesday.

The Islanders are back home to host Montreal in a game that can be seen in Canada on RDS. The Habs come to Long Island after beating Pittsburgh 3-2 in a shootout. New Jersey, a 1-0 winner in New York, is home to St. Louis, a 3-1 winner at Ottawa. The Rangers are home again, this time to Tampa Bay, a 3-1 home loser to Los Angeles. Columbus will try to build on a 3-1 win against Minnesota when it hosts Dallas, while Winnipeg visits Washington, a 4-0 winner against Florida.

A half-hour later, Los Angeles visits Florida and Nashville visits Ottawa.

At 8 p.m. ET, Vancouver tries to build on Tuesday's 4-3 shootout win at Nashville when it visits Minnesota. In the final game of the night, Calgary continues its road trip with a visit to Phoenix, where the Coyotes will try for their fourth straight win after beating Dallas 4-1 on Tuesday.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.

— Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice on Mathieu Perreault, who scored two goals in win against Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday
