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.
Vancouver Canucks @ Minnesota Wild 7:30 PM
Philadelphia Flyers @ New York Rangers 8:00 PM
Anaheim Ducks @ Calgary Flames 10:00 PM
- The Minnesota Wild are 2-0 against the Vancouver Canucks this season and currently hold the top Wild Card spot in the West with 85 points. They lead the Phoenix Coyotes by a three point margin. Tonight’s game is one of two home games in the next ten, which is significant to the Wild, who have a 23-8-5 record at home. [ NHL.com ]
- Tonight’s marquee match up will be the Philadelphia Flyers and the New York Rangers, who are separated by one point in the standings (the Rangers are ahead). The Metropolitan Division is jam packed, and the playoff positions change each night, but this could very well be a preview of a first round match up. [ NHL.com ]
- The Anaheim Ducks have an opportunity to jump ahead in the race for the Pacific Division title and the President’s Trophy, with their next eight games coming against opponents that are currently out of the playoff picture. Now any of these teams could play spoiler and the Ducks are 4-4-2 in their last 10, but the odds are in their favor to pick up some points. [ NHL.com ]
Tonight’s best dressed will go to the classic match up between the New York Rangers and the Philadelphia Flyers.
