A full day of hockey: 14 games on NHL schedule

NHL.com @NHL
Saturday figures to be a bonanza for hockey fans. The NHL's 14-game schedule runs from early afternoon until late night, with action from coast to coast to coast.

The day gets under way at 1 p.m. ET in Boston, where the Bruins try to end a nine-game losing streak when they host Vancouver. The B's are looking for their first win at TD Garden in more than a month. The Canucks lost 3-1 on Thursday at Ottawa, the third stop on their record-setting 14-game road trip.

At 2 p.m., the Pittsburgh Penguins visit Montreal for the first of back-to-back matinees for both teams. The Canadiens won 3-2 in a shootout at Boston on Thursday; the Penguins have had four days off since their wild 5-4 win over Buffalo on Monday.

One of the NHL's hottest teams, the Los Angeles Kings, will try for a franchise-record ninth consecutive win when they host Detroit at 4 p.m. The Kings tied a team record for longest winning streak by beating Anaheim 6-4 on Thursday, one night after the Wings lost 3-1 to the Ducks at the Honda Center.

It's an early-evening start for the Phoenix Coyotes and Dallas Stars, who will face off at 6 p.m. ET at the American Airlines Center. Dallas is back home after a 2-1 loss at Columbus on Thursday. Phoenix will be looking for its seventh consecutive win after a 2-1 shootout victory at Chicago on Friday.

The Blue Jackets host Buffalo in one of six games that face off at 7 p.m. ET. The Sabres come to town after a 4-3 home loss at Carolina on Friday.

Ilya Kovalchuk visits Madison Square Garden for the first time as a Devil when New Jersey visits the New York Rangers. Kovalchuk's debut with the Devils was a game to remember -- he had two assists as the Devils rallied with three late goals to beat Toronto 4-3 at home. The Rangers had Friday off after a wild 6-5 home loss to Washington on Thursday.

Kovalchuk's former team, the Atlanta Thrashers, visit the Florida Panthers. Both teams lost Friday; Washington beat Atlanta 5-2, while Florida dropped a 2-1 decision at home to Calgary.

The NHL's second-hottest team, the Ottawa Senators, try for their 12th consecutive victory when they visit Toronto. The Senators made it 11 wins in a row by beating Vancouver on Thursday, while the Leafs try to rebound from a 4-3 loss at New Jersey in which they blew a 3-1 lead in the final 3:04 of regulation. That game will be shown on CBC and the NHL Network in the United States

Also at 7, the New York Islanders will try to end a six-game losing streak when they host Carolina, and the Tampa Bay Lightning, who beat the Isles 5-2 on Thursday, host Calgary.

Three more games face off at 8 p.m. ET.

In Nashville, the Predators host San Jose, a 4-2 winner at St. Louis on Thursday. The Predators beat Colorado 5-3 the same night.

St. Louis figures to pack the Scottrade Center for a matchup with Chicago. The Blues beat the Hawks 3-2 at the United Center on Wednesday.

Minnesota, a 4-2 winner at home over Edmonton on Thursday, hosts a rare visit by Philadelphia. The Flyers have been off since their 1-0 loss at Edmonton on Wednesday.

In the late game, Colorado will try to rebound from its loss at Nashville when Edmonton comes to the Pepsi Center. The Oilers went 0-for-January, but have won two of their three games this month.
