Hockey fans in the United States can enjoy a doubleheader on the NHL Network as part of the second 14-game Saturday in as many weeks.
The action gets under way at 4 p.m. ET when the Vancouver Canucks host the Minnesota Wild in the opener of the NHL Network twin bill. The Canucks whipped Nashville 5-1 on Thursday, the same night the Wild lost 2-1 at Edmonton in a shootout. Also at 4, the Predators move on to Calgary, where the Flames will try to bounce back from Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Rangers.
Eight more games get under way at 7 p.m. ET -- including the second half of the NHL Network doubleheader, which features a battle of unbeaten teams. Detroit comes into the Verizon Center in Washington with a 5-0-0 mark after Friday's 5-2 win against Columbus, while the Capitals are 6-0-0 following their 5-2 win at Philadelphia on Thursday.
