The Pittsburgh Penguins will conclude February on the road as they visit Dallas in one of four games on the NHL schedule for Wednesday.

It will be a homecoming for forward James Neal, who will be back in American Airlines Center for the first time since the Stars dealt him to Pittsburgh last February for defenseman Alex Goligoski. He returns to his former home as a 30-goal scorer who recently signed a six-year contract extension.

Both team are coming off wins on Sunday: Pittsburgh topped Columbus 4-2, while Dallas rallied to beat Vancouver 3-2 in overtime.

U.S. fans can see the game on the NBC Sports Network, beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET. Canadian viewers can tune in on TSN2.

A half-hour later, two struggling teams meet when Chicago hosts Toronto, a game that can be seen in Canada on TSN. The Leafs come to the Windy City after a 5-3 home loss to Florida on Tuesday. The Hawks are back home after weekend losses at Los Angeles and Anaheim.

The other games on the schedule both start at 10 p.m. ET. St. Louis tries to make it 4-for-4 on its current trip when it visits Edmonton, which is back at Rexall Place after winning 5-3 on Monday in Winnipeg. Buffalo starts a California swing with a game in Anaheim, which lost 4-1 at Colorado on Monday.
Quote of the Day

It is really special. I had a lot of friends and family here tonight, and for my first [NHL] game in here it was great. I played here as an elementary-school player in the city championships and this was my first time back. It was a lot of fun.
