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.
New York Rangers @ Carolina Hurricanes 7:00 PM [ Preview ]
New Jersey Devils @ Detroit Red Wings 7:30 PM [ Preview ]
Buffalo Sabres @ Florida Panthers 7:30 PM [ Preview ]
New York Islanders @ Calgary Flames 9:00 PM [ Preview ]
Pittsburgh Penguins @ Anaheim Ducks 10:00 PM [ Preview ]
- The Rangers are fighting for a top 3 finish in the Metropolitan Division. Wednesday’s overtime loss did not do much to help their position, and their 0-2-1 run has seen them drop from 2nd to 3rd. Martin St. Louis made his debut with the Rangers on the same day as the blockbuster trade. He did not register a point against Toronto.
- Roberto Luongo will get his first start for the Florida Panthers tonight since being traded from the Vancouver Canucks. The last time Luongo started for Florida was back in 2006.
- At the start of February, the Carolina Hurricanes were sitting third in the Metro Division. Since then they have plummeted to seventh. They got a much needed win over the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday.
Unfortunately I have to go with a bit of a repeat here and go with the Detroit Red Wings and New Jersey Devils again. The Rangers match up is ruined by Carolina’s boring home uniforms. Sabres and Panthers doesn’t really do much for me; too much Reebok piping. The Islanders are nice, but the Flames are a mess. The Ducks are too bland.
TMMOTS Pregame Warm Up Song:
The Tossers – “Katie At The Races”
One of my favorite songs by The Tossers!
