Stream Hockey Night in Canada games on Saturday
Montreal Canadiens look to hold on to second seed in Atlantic Division
Five north-of-the-border NHL teams are competing in Hockey Night in Canada action on Saturday night.
Though only one of those squads — the Montreal Canadiens — is moving on to the post-season, each game still has importance.
For example, Saturday's Vancouver-Edmonton match-up will see the end of an era. Veteran Oilers forward and former Team Canada fixture Ryan Smyth has said the game will be his last in the NHL.
In addition, after an embarrassing string of losses that dashed their playoff hopes, the Toronto Maple Leafs are looking to save face by continuing their season-long domination of the Ottawa Senators.
Three Hockey Night in Canada games are available to stream on Saturday night. To watch them, follow the links below.
New York Rangers at Montreal Canadiens – 6:30 p.m. ET
The Montreal Canadiens need at least point in their final game in order to stay alive for the second seed in the Atlantic Division.
Montreal (45-28-8) is trying to catch Tampa Bay for the No. 2 spot in the division after the Lightning won Friday night to move one point ahead.
Fortunately, they'll be facing a New York Rangers team Saturday night that has nothing to play for in its season finale and has had little success in Montreal over the past six years.
Catch the game at 7 p.m. on CBC Sports. Coverage starts at 6:30. Click here to watch online.
Toronto Maple Leafs at Ottawa Senators – 6:30 p.m. ET
After an epic collapse led to a major change in their organization, the Toronto Maple Leafs will try to conclude this disappointing season with something positive — a seventh consecutive victory over the rival Ottawa Senators.
Vancouver Canucks at Edmonton Oilers – 10:00 p.m. ET
Edmonton Oilers fans will get to say goodbye to veteran forward and former Canadian national team stalwart Ryan Smyth at the end of another disappointing season.
Smyth announced that he will retire after Saturday night's home game against the Vancouver Canucks.
Smyth, who turned 38 on Feb. 21, played 970 of his 1,269 NHL games in two stints with Edmonton. He played his first 11-plus seasons with the Oilers and helped lead them to the Stanley Cup final in 2006, when they lost in seven games to Carolina.
