Rangers-Leafs on NHL Network highlights Saturday
The Rangers are trying to hang on to first place in the Eastern Conference. The NHL Network will be in Toronto on Saturday to see if they can stay there.

The days are dwindling down to a precious few as the regular season enters its last two weeks, and the New York Rangers are trying to hang on to first place in the Eastern Conference. The NHL Network will be in Toronto on Saturday to see if they can stay there.

U.S. viewers can tune into the NHL Network at 7 p.m. ET to see the Rangers visit the Leafs in one of 11 games on the schedule. The Rangers enter the night one point ahead of Pittsburgh after Friday's 4-1 home loss to Buffalo. The Leafs are back home after a successful trip to Newark, where they beat the Devils 4-3 in a shootout. The game can be seen in Canada on CBC.

Saturday's action gets under way at 2 p.m. ET when Calgary visits Dallas in a meeting between two of the teams scrambling for playoff berths in the West.

The Rangers-Leafs game is one of seven that starts at 7 p.m. The Penguins, the NHL's hottest team, could catch the Rangers with a win in Ottawa and a regulation loss by New York. Ottawa comes off a 5-1 loss at Montreal on Friday. The Canadiens visit Philadelphia, which can clinch a playoff berth with a win. That game can be seen in Canada on RDS and regionally on CBC.

Also at 7, the Islanders are at Tampa Bay, Carolina visits Detroit and Winnipeg is at Nashville in a game that can be seen in parts of Canada on CBC.

Los Angeles, now first in the Pacific Division, will try for its seventh straight win when Boston comes to Staples Center for a game that starts at 9 p.m. ET. An hour later, Vancouver concludes a four-game trip with a visit to Colorado, a game that can be seen as the second half of CBC's "Hockey Night in Canada" doubleheader. Also at 10, Phoenix visits San Jose -- the Coyotes enter the night seventh in the West after beating Colorado 3-2 on Thursday night; the Sharks are 10th but just two points behind Phoenix.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
