NHL Network to air Rangers-Lightning on Friday @NHLdotcom
The Tampa Bay Lightning need every point they can get as they try to scramble back into the top eight in the Eastern Conference. They'll face a big challenge on Friday night, when the Eastern Conference-leading New York Rangers come to town in one of six games on the NHL schedule.

The Rangers will be playing for the second time in as many days -- they come to Tampa after a 3-2 win at Carolina on Thursday. The Bolts have been off since beating Montreal 2-1 at home on Tuesday.

The NHL Network will air the game to viewers in the United States, beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET.

Friday's action begins a half-hour earlier with a pair of games. New Jersey tries to rebound after Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss at Boston when it visits Washington, which has been off since rallying for a 3-2 win against the Islanders on Tuesday. Also, Ottawa is home for a rare visit from Chicago in a game that Canadian viewers can see on TSN and RDS2.

Also at 7:30, Minnesota visits Detroit. The Wild got a point in Montreal on Thursday night by from a three-goal deficit in the final minutes of regulation but lost 5-4 in a shootout. Detroit will again be without captain Nicklas Lidstrom and star center Pavel Datsyuk, both of whom were sidelined for Tuesday's 5-2 win in Columbus.

Dallas, eighth in the West after a 4-3 shootout loss to Pittsburgh on Wednesday, visits Edmonton at 9:30 p.m. ET in a game that can be seen in Canada on TSN. In the final game on the schedule, Anaheim tries to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Buffalo on Wednesday when Calgary comes to the Honda Center for a 10 p.m. ET start.
