All-Star Johnny Gaudreau ended his three-game goal-scoring drought against the Hurricanes and hopes to tally in consecutive contests for the first time since following a hat trick versus Winnipeg on Dec. 22 with a two-goal effort against Edmonton five days later. Columbus aims to conclude its four-game road trip with a winning record after escaping Vancouver with a 2-1 shootout victory Thursday. Scott Hartnell enters Friday’s contest with a four-game point streak after netting a third-period goal to overtake All-Star Brandon Saad (35) for the team lead in scoring with 36 points. Calgary will be attempting to complete a sweep of the two-game season series after posting a 4-2 triumph at Columbus on Jan. 21.<BR><BR><STRONG>TV:</STRONG> 9 p.m. ET, FSN Ohio (Columbus), Sportsnet West (Calgary)
