Cisco NHL Live previews Saturday's season openers

by Matt Sitkoff /


We're one day away from #hockeyisback and we'll get you ready for puck drop on Cisco NHL Live at 5 p.m. ET on the NHL Network with Bill Pidto and EJ Hradek.

There are 13 games on Saturday's slate and we'll get EJ's take on all of them, including the banner raising of the Kings as they host the Blackhawks. NBC Sports Analyst Eddie Olyczyk, who will be calling the game on NBC, will drop by the show, preview the game and give us insight on a shortened season.

Today the NHL Network will be at the Capitals training camp where we'll talk to a couple of first-years, head coach Adam Oates and center Mike Ribeiro, to see how they're adjusting to the nation's capital. Islanders forward John Tavares will also be on the show from the Cisco NHL Arena Cam.

Don't forget to submit your #AskEJ questions through Twitter via @NHLNetwork or @EJHradek_NHL, keep an eye on this Senior Reporter's dance moves in his EJ5: Hradek's Top 5 Thoughts of the Day, and stick around for the shootout as EJ picks each game being played on Saturday.

Make sure to tune in to Cisco NHL Live on NHL Network at 5 p.m. ET with Bill Pidto and EJ Hradek.
