Once again Hamiltonians will join in on the national celebration of the national game. For the third year Hamilton celebrates with a game of road hockey. Organizer Sam Sheculski is inviting hockey fans to 25 Northgate Dr. in Hamilton. It's Game On at 3 p.m. on Saturday and dinner will be served. That's a top shelf offer.
Scheculski asks that participants come armed with a stick, pads, a net, a helmet and canned goods. The canned goods are to be donated to a local charity, Scheculski promises.

2:00 p.m. ET — New York Rangers at Ottawa Senators
Watch the New York Rangers and the Ottawa Senators at this link. The Senators return to the ice after an overtime loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday.
Carey Price called it one of his best performances of the season. The Canadiens goaltender was outstanding, making 40 saves in a 5-4 overtime win over the Senators.
"I thought we did a lot of good things," said Senators forward Bobby Ryan. "I thought we controlled the pace most of the game. It's a loss and it's a negative in that regard, but I think everyone in the room can take a lot of positives from it."
2:00 p.m. ET — Edmonton Oilers at Winnipeg Jets
Watch the Oilers and the Jets at this link. The Oilers are coming off a 4-1 loss Thursday in which new goalie Ben Scrivens became the fifth different goaltender to play for the team this season.
Scrivens, who was acquired Wednesday from Los Angeles, made 29 saves in the Oilers loss to Minnesota.
Meanwhile, the Jets continue to win under new coach Paul Maurice beating the Calgary Flames 5-2 on Thursday.
7:00 p.m. ET — Montreal Canadiens at Toronto Maple Leafs
Watch the Canadiens and the Leafs at this link. Carey Price made 40 saves and P.K. Subban scored the overtime winner and Montreal defeated Ottawa Thursday. Price said the game was his best of the season so far.
Good news for fans of Canada's Olympic hockey team. Subban scored 23 seconds into the extra period as his shot trickled through Craig Anderson's legs.
The Leafs have been one of the league's best team's in shootouts this year. The team has won nine of 13 shootouts this season.
"We feel good about the way that we've been playing," captain Dion Phaneuf said.
"We want to keep ... playing the brand of hockey that we want to play and keep building the way that we have been playing because they're big points for us."
10:00 p.m. ET — Calgary Flames at Vancouver Canucks
Watch the Canucks and Flames at this link. During their seven-game losing streak at home the Calgary Flames have been outscored 22-4.
That breaks a previous mark of six straight losses set in December 1998.
"We can't wait for it to turn around. The game doesn't work that way," said Flames center Matt Stajan.
"It's not just all of a sudden, you're going to start winning. You've gotta make it happen."
