After a busy Thursday, all of our teams are off today -- except the Wolves; we don't want to give short shrift to them, as they are in a similar position to the Blackhawks, down in their division but bunched up with a number of other teams jockeying for playoff position.â†µâ†µ
6 p.m., NHL Network: Rangers at Capitals.â†µâ†µ
7 p.m., Comcast 100: AHL, Wolves at Admirals. (That's a trip to Milwaukee, if you're not familiar with AHL nicknames.)â†µâ†µ
7 p.m., ESPN: NBA, Thunder at Magic. Singular team names still sound strange, don't they?â†µâ†µ
8 p.m., CSN Chicago: NHL, Flames at Sharks.â†µâ†µ
9:30 p.m., ESPN: NBA, Nuggets at Trail Blazers.
