- St. Louis vs Pittsburgh is a battle between two number one teams. The Pittsburgh Penguins have a lock on the Metropolitan Division, but the Blues have seen the Chicago Blackhawks chip away at their lead with two losses on the road. [ NHL.com ]
- 48 hours ago the Columbus Blue Jackets were sitting in third in the Metropolitan Division playoff race. After a loss to the New York Rangers, and no help in the other games, Columbus is now on the outside looking in. They will need a win against the New York Islanders today, otherwise things could get rough down the stretch.
- Tonight will be David Clarkson‘s first game back in New Jersey since signing with the Toronto Maple Leafs over the Summer. This comes just days after former captain Zach Parise made his first return to the Prudential Center.
- The Blackhawks are within four points of the top spot in the Central Division, currently held by the St. Louis Blues. [ NHL.com ]
- The Anaheim Ducks have had a few days off to regroup since the 3-2 loss to the San Jose Sharks that saw them fall out of first place in the Pacific Division for the first time since December. They take on the Florida Panthers tonight.
Today I’ll give the best dressed to the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Detroit Red Wings.
