Ottawa Senators at Toronto Maple Leafs — 7 p.m. ET
The Battle of Ontario has been a one-sided affair of late, and the Toronto Maple Leafs will try to keep it that way while continuing their strong play at home Saturday night against the Ottawa Senators.
The Maple Leafs have won five in a row and also reeled off five straight wins over the Senators dating to last season, leaving them six points up on Toronto in the Atlantic Division. The Leafs (26-17-5) are 9-1-1 in their last 11 overall after overcoming an early 2-0 deficit by scoring five straight goals in a 6-3 win over Florida on Thursday.
Minnesota Wild at Calgary Flames — 10 p.m. ET
For three weeks, the Calgary Flames couldn't win at home. Now, they can't lose.
Calgary (20-27-7) was outscored 22-4 during a club-record seven-game home skid Dec. 27-Jan. 16, but the Flames have since totaled 17 goals while going 4-0-0 in a five-game stretch at home. Jiri Hudler had a goal and an assist, defenseman Mark Giordano extended his point streak to a career-high eight games and Karri Ramo made 27 saves in Thursday's 4-1 win over San Jose.
