Now that they own the NHL record for the longest home winning streak, the Detroit Red Wings will try to extend it.
The Wings broke the record for consecutive home wins when they beat Dallas 3-1 on Tuesday night for their 21st straight victory at Joe Louis Arena. They'll try for No. 22 when the Nashville Predators come to town in one of seven games on Friday's schedule.
The Predators figure to provide a pretty good test -- they're fifth in the West and coming off a 3-2 win against Chicago on Tuesday.
Fans in the United States can tune into the NHL Network on Thursday night to see if the Chicago Blackhawks can finally find their way back into the win column.
Chicago, which is winless in its last nine games (0-8-1), will face the high-flying New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. The NHL Network will show the game in the United States, beginning at 7 p.m. ET. New York entered Wednesday's action nine points ahead of the Bruins atop the Eastern Conference after a 3-0 win in Boston on Tuesday.
Action in Philadelphia on Thursday night also gets under way at 7 ET, as the Flyers host the Buffalo Sabres at Wells Fargo Center. Both teams will be looking to avoid a three-game losing streak.
After a disappointing loss to the only team ahead of them in the Eastern Conference standings, a visit to their fiercest rival might be just what the Boston Bruins need to get back on track.
One night after being beaten 3-0 at home by the New York Rangers, the Bruins are back in action at Montreal in one of five games on Wednesday night's NHL schedule. NBC Sports Network will air the game in the United States beginning at 7 p.m. ET, while TSN and RDS will show the contest in Canada.
The Canadiens are also trying to bounce back from a loss -- they couldn't hold a third-period lead and were beaten 5-3 by Carolina on Monday.
With points in eight of their last 10 games, the Anaheim Ducks have managed to get back into the Western Conference playoff race. They'll continue their pursuit Tuesday night in front of a nationally-televised audience.
The Ducks -- who currently find themselves nine points out of eighth place in the West, will face the Minnesota Wild at the Xcel Energy Center. Opening faceoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET and can be seen on the NBC Sports Network in the United States and TSN2 in Canada.
Minnesota (25-22-8) has lost three in a row. The Wild trail the Phoenix Coyotes by four points for the eighth and final playoff spot in the West.
On Monday, they'll be provided with an opportunity to bounce back. And, once again, the country will be watching.
As part of the NHL's three-game schedule on Monday night, the Capitals will host the San Jose Sharks at the Verizon Center at 7:30 p.m. ET. Eighth place in the Eastern Conference will be on the line, as Sunday's loss left Washington (28-22-5) one point behind the Toronto Maple Leafs.
The NHL's two best teams will try to add to their point totals in the first and last games on Sunday's seven-game NHL schedule.
The action starts at 12:30 p.m. ET when the best team in the Eastern Conference, the New York Rangers, host the Washington Capitals in a game that will be seen in the United States on NBC and in Canada on the NHL Network and RDSI. The Rangers increased their conference-leading total to 75 points by winning 5-2 in Philadelphia on Saturday. The Caps have been off since Thursday, when they blew a late two-goal lead to Winnipeg and lost 3-2 in a shootout.
The Philadelphia Flyers and Toronto Maple Leafs will meet for the first time in more than three months when the Leafs come to the Wells Fargo Center in one of 10 games on Thursday's NHL schedule.
The Leafs and Flyers haven't played since Oct. 24, when the Flyers won 4-2 at home. Both teams are coming off disappointing defeats on Tuesday -- Philadelphia lost 1-0 in a shootout to the visiting New York Islanders, while the Leafs fell 2-1 at Winnipeg.
The NHL Network will air the game in the United States, beginning at 7 p.m. ET. Viewers in Canada can watch the game on TSN.
With points in seven of their last 10 games, the Tampa Bay Lightning are doing their best to remain in the Eastern Conference playoff race. They'll continue their pursuit Tuesday night in front of a nationally-televised audience.
The Lightning -- who currently find themselves 10 points out of eighth place in the East, will host the Los Angeles Kings at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. Opening faceoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET and can be seen on the NBC Sports Network in the United States and TSN2 in Canada.
Los Angeles (25-18-10) has also earned points in seven of its last 10 games. However, the Kings will be looking to avoid a three-game losing streak Tuesday night.
The Detroit Red Wings' bid to extend their lead atop the NHL standings will be televised across the United States and Canada on Monday night.
Detroit (35-16-2), which is 8-1-1 over its last 10 games, brings a one-point lead over the New York Rangers to the desert as the Wings -- who are three points ahead of Vancouver in the Western Conference -- face the Phoenix Coyotes at Jobing.com Arena. Opening faceoff is slated for 8 p.m. ET and can be seen on the NBC Sports Network in the U.S. and TSN2 in Canada.
A Caps game is a Super Bowl Sunday tradition in Washington, and this year is no different -- except for the opponent.
The Boston Bruins, losers of three of four, travel to the Verizon Center to face the Capitals in the first of four afternoon games, all in the Eastern Conference. The game will be televised on NBC Sports Network, with puck drop at 12:30 p.m.
