NHL Network to show Preds-Wings on busy Friday
Now that they own the NHL record for the longest home winning streak, the Detroit Red Wings will try to extend it.
Now that they own the NHL record for the longest home winning streak, the Detroit Red Wings will try to extend it.

The Wings broke the record for consecutive home wins when they beat Dallas 3-1 on Tuesday night for their 21st straight victory at Joe Louis Arena. They'll try for No. 22 when the Nashville Predators come to town in one of seven games on Friday's schedule.

The Predators figure to provide a pretty good test -- they're fifth in the West and coming off a 3-2 win against Chicago on Tuesday.

The NHL Network will air the game in the United States, beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET.

Two other games get under way at 7:30: Montreal visits Buffalo, which will try to rebound after a 7-2 loss at Philadelphia on Thursday, and Washington visits Florida in a battle between the top two teams in the Southeast Division.

Friday's action gets under way at 7 p.m. ET when Anaheim continues its eight-game road trip with a visit to New Jersey. The Ducks are 3-0-1 thus far after beating Pittsburgh 2-1 on Wednesday; the Devils have been off since winning 4-1 at Buffalo on Tuesday. Also at 7, San Jose tries to bounce back from Thursday's 6-5 overtime loss at Carolina when it visits Carolina. The 'Canes have been off since Monday's 5-3 win at Montreal.

At 8, the Boston Bruins continue their road trip in Winnipeg, a game that will air in Canada on TSN. The Jets are home after winning 4-3 in a shootout at Minnesota on Thursday -- the same outcome the Bruins enjoyed Wednesday in Montreal.

In the final game of the night, Colorado visits Edmonton in a battle of teams coming off losses on Wednesday -- the Avs fell 3-1 at Vancouver, while the Oilers lost 4-3 in overtime to Toronto at home.
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
