The Chicago Blackhawks look to extend their consecutive point streak to 21 as they face the Columbus Blue Jackets tonight on the NHL Network. Cisco NHL Live with Steve Mears and EJ Hradek, at 5 p.m. ET on the NHL Network, will get you ready for that game and your hockey weekend. We'll preview tonight's matchup with Eddie Olczyk on our Cisco NHL Arena Cam in Chicago. Elsewhere in the Western Conference, we'll go inside the deal that will bring Ryan O'Reilly back on the ice for the Colorado Avalanche.
The Winnipeg Jets have won three in a row and we'll talk to one of their top forwards, Evander Kane, about his recent hot streak. Phoenix Coyotes president Mike Nealy will also stop by the show and NHL Network analyst Barry Melrose will give out his awards for February. Speaking of February awards, the NHL Rookie of the Month, Florida Panthers Jonathan Huberdeau will join the show.
