The NHL Network will offer viewers a day-night doubleheader as part of the League's 11-game Saturday schedule.

The action begins at 1 p.m. ET, when the Boston Bruins go for their third straight victory as they host the Washington Capitals. Both teams are coming off home wins on Thursday -- Boston beat Buffalo 3-1 while Washington edged Tampa Bay 3-2 in OT.

At 3 p.m., Colorado is back home after a 4-2 loss to Anaheim on Thursday for a game against Edmonton.

The second half of the Network doubleheader begins at 7 p.m. ET, when the Philadelphia Flyers, coming off a 5-0 win against Florida on Thursday, visit the struggling Toronto Maple Leafs -- a game that can also be seen in Canada on CBC. The Leafs have had a couple of days off after blowing a 2-0 lead and losing 3-2 in Pittsburgh on Wednesday.

Three other games also start at 7: The Devils visit the Islanders in a rematch of New Jersey's 5-1 win in Newark on Thursday. Buffalo visits Ottawa, a 4-1 winner against the Rangers on Thursday, in a game that can be seen in Canada on RDS and regionally on CBC, and Tampa Bay begins a seven-game homestand by hosting Carolina.

Four more games get under way at 8 p.m. ET. St. Louis hosts Columbus in the opener of a home-and-home series, Detroit visits Nashville, Anaheim travels to Dallas -- where the Stars will try to extend the 8-0-1 run that has carried them into first place in the Pacific Division -- and Phoenix hosts San Jose in a battle of teams coming off shootout losses on Thursday.

In the final game of the night, Montreal concludes a road trip with a stop in Vancouver, a game that can be seen in Canada as the second half of CBC's "Hockey Night in Canada" doubleheader as well as on RDS. Both teams won Thursday -- Montreal beat the Oilers 5-3 in Edmonton, while the Canucks edged Winnipeg 3-2.

Quote of the Day

I've never seen anything like that. The great thing is I don't know how many times guys bailed me out where they had to score to keep it alive and they did every time. It was amazing. It's not the way we draw it up, to go 20 rounds here, but obviously it's a big win.
