After 13 games on Friday, the holiday weekend schedule has 11 more on tap for Saturday -- and the NHL Network will be on hand for two of the biggest.

Fans in the United States can tune in at 2 p.m. ET for the first meeting of the season between the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers. The Rangers are back home after a 6-3 win in Washington on Friday, while the Flyers come to the Big Apple after beating Montreal 3-1 at home Friday afternoon.

The Canadiens go back home to host Pittsburgh at 7 p.m. ET in the second half of the NHL Network doubleheader; the game will also be shown in Canada on RDS and CBC. The Penguins whipped Ottawa 6-3 in Pittsburgh of Friday night.

Saturday's action begins at 1 p.m. ET when the New York Islanders visit New Jersey in the back end of a home-and-home series. The Devils won 1-0 at the Nassau Coliseum on Friday.

In addition to the Penguins-Canadiens game, five other contests get under way at 7.

Winnipeg, a 3-1 winner at Carolina on Friday night, travels to Boston where the Bruins saw their 10-game winning streak ended during the day in a 3-2 shootout loss to Detroit; the game can be seen in parts of Canada on CBC. The Wings are back home for a game against Nashville, one of only four teams that didn't play Friday.

Washington tries to bounce back from the loss to the Rangers against Buffalo, which is home after a 5-1 loss at Columbus on Friday. Edmonton, a 5-2 winner at Minnesota on Friday, has an early-evening visit to Colorado, which has been idle since Wednesday's 3-0 home loss to Vancouver -- this game can also be seen regionally on CBC in Canada. Also, Florida visits Tampa Bay in the second half of a home-and-home series; the Lightning won 2-1 in OT on Friday in Sunrise, Fla.

At 8 p.m. ET, Phoenix tries to bounce back from a 5-0 home loss to Vancouver on Friday when it hosts Dallas. The Stars lost 4-3 in a shootout at home to Toronto on Friday. At 10 p.m. ET, Vancouver moves on to San Jose, a 1-0 winner against Chicago on Wednesday, in the second half of CBC's "Hockey Night in Canada" doubleheader.
 
The Hawks, who rallied to win 6-5 at Anaheim on Friday, finish the "Circus Trip" with a 10:30 p.m. ET game in Los Angeles.
