Gaborik, Capuano among guests on Cisco NHL Live

by Matt Sitkoff /

Wednesday is Rivalry Night in the NHL and Cisco NHL Live, at 5 p.m. ET on NHL Network, with Steve Mears and E.J. Hradek, will have the New Jersey Devils' game against the Boston Bruins covered. We'll talk to NBC Sports analyst Pierre McGuire, who will be Inside the Glass, and we'll get the X-Factor for the matchup from NHL Network analyst Barry Melrose.

The Columbus Blue Jackets are trying to make the Stanley Cup Playoffs for just the second time in franchise history, and we'll talk to recently acquired forward Marian Gaborik about his transition. In the Eastern Conference, the New York Islanders continue their march toward their first playoff berth since the 2006-07 season, and coach Jack Capuano will join the show. Our Subway Fresh Face is Quinnipiac goalie Eric Hartzell and we'll talk to his coach Rand Pecknold about his Hobey Baker chances, and his team's upcoming battle with St. Cloud State at the Frozen Four.

Don't forget to submit your #AskEJ questions through Twitter via @NHLNetwork or @EJHradek_NHL, play a game of plus-minus, and stick around for the shootout as EJ picks all five games being played on Wednesday.
