NHL Live: A busy Friday and a special anniversary

by Staff

Five games on the Friday schedule prepare us for a busy weekend of NHL action, and NHL Live with Steve Mears and E.J. Hradek, at 5 p.m. ET on NHL Network, will get you set.

We'll check in on our arena cams from Consol Energy Center, where Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports on the Pittsburgh Penguins hosting the New York Islanders, and Verizon Center for the game between the Washington Capitals and Montreal Canadiens. writer Corey Masisak joins us to discuss this week's Super 16 power rankings, and NHL Network analyst Barry Melrose will call in as well to discuss the current plight of Vancouver Canucks coach John Tortorella and hand out his Mullet of the Week.

North Dakota captain Dillon Simpson also checks in as part of this week's College Hockey Report. Simpson and his teammates take on Boston University on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. on NBCSN.

Our Flashback Friday feature will go back 10 years to celebrate the inaugural Heritage Classic, when the Edmonton Oilers hosted the Montreal Canadiens.

Remember to submit your #AskEJ questions through Twitter via @NHLNetwork or @EJHradek_NHL, and join the conversation on Twitter as we ask you to pick the game of the night.
