Channel Surfing is Too Many Men On The Site’s quick guide to tonight’s NHL action, as well as any other interesting broadcasts in the world of hockey. Included is a list of the scheduled games, game notes, as well as a pregame warm up song.
Columbus Blue Jackets @ Toronto Maple Leafs 7:00 PM [ Preview ]
Buffalo Sabres @ Dallas Stars 8:00 PM [ Preview ]
Calgary Flames @ Minnesota Wild 8:00 PM [ Preview ]
Montreal Canadiens @ Los Angeles Kings [ Preview ]
- The Toronto Maple Leafs are on a seven game winning streak at home at the Air Canada Centre. The Columbus Blue Jackets have only one of their last five road games. [ NHL.com ]
- Jack Johnson was one of the more noteable Olympic snubs for Team USA. However, since being left off the roster, Johnson has been playing much better. He has four assists in the last three games for the Blue Jackets [ NHL.com ]
- The Montreal Canadiens enter tonight’s game riding a five game point streak, the last being an overtime win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday. The Leafs once again saw a third period lead evaporate into an overtime loss.
- The Los Angeles Kings are undefeated since coming out of the Olympic break.
Tonight’s Best Dressed goes to the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Leafs home blues are one of the most iconic uniforms in sports. The Blue Jackets will bring a modern touch to the game with their aways. I may be a bit biased, but the Jackets unis are a modern classic.
