Day 2 of the 2013-14 NHL season will see five more teams play their opening games, as well as the Toronto Maple Leafs trying to make it two wins in a row after beginning their season with a 4-3 road victory against the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday night.
Here's a quick look at Wednesday's action:
Toronto Maple Leafs at Philadelphia Flyers -- The Flyers open their season trying to bounce back after missing the Stanley Cup Playoffs in 2012-13. They're relying on newcomers like goaltender Ray Emery and defenseman Mark Streit, as well as holdovers such as Claude Giroux and Scott Hartnell. Jonathan Bernier will get his first start with the Maple Leafs after James Reimer got Toronto off to a winning start with 34 saves in Montreal. Phil Kessel had an assist for the Maple Leafs hours after signing an eight-year, $64 million contract extension.
Buffalo Sabres at Detroit Red Wings -- The new season's first edition of Wednesday Night Rivalry (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN/TSN2) marks the Red Wings' return to the Eastern Conference following the NHL's offseason realignment. It will also mark the Detroit debut of offseason acquisitions Daniel Alfredsson and Stephen Weiss. The Sabres, who named Thomas Vanek and Steve Ott as co-captains on Tuesday, are trying to rebuild after back-to-back non-playoff seasons.
