A feast of games for fans on NHL Network Thursday @NHLdotcom
The NHL Network will give fans across North America something to be thankful for Thursday.

More than 30,000 people voted for their favorite game of the first quarter of the season, and Thursday will see the winners aired.

At noon ET, fans will be able to relive the memorable contest between the Nashville Predators and Ottawa Senators, won by the Predators, 6-5 in overtime. In that game, eight of the 11 goals scored in the game -- and five of six for Nashville -- were scored by defensemen, including a shorthanded goal by Ottawa's Chris Phillips with 1.8 seconds left that forced overtime, and Shea Weber's overtime power-play winner for the Predators.

At 2 p.m., NHL Network will re-air one of the greatest comebacks in NHL history, when the Chicago Blackhawks dug out of a 5-0 hole to beat the Flames in Calgary, 6-5 in overtime.

The Flames scored five times in a span of 5:29 in the first period. But John Madden scored late in the first to get the Blackhawks on the board, they scored three times in the second, tied it in the third Patrick Sharp and Brent Seabrook capped the remarkable comeback 26 seconds into the extra period.

After NHL Power Play at 4 p.m., the final game of the night will see a replay of the shootout from Oct. 4 between the Philadelphia Flyers and Washington Capitals, a game the Flyers won 6-5 in overtime.

In one period, Flyers captain Mike Richards had a hat trick; Capitals superstar Alex Ovechkin had 2 goals and Flyers defenseman Matt Carle tied an NHL mark with 4 assists in a single period. The capper came when Flyers forward Danny Briere, on his 32nd birthday scored the overtime winner.
