- The Columbus Blue Jackets announced yesterday that Nathan Horton will miss a few games with a lower body injury. Jared Boll will make his return to the Columbus lineup in Horton’s absence. The Colorado Avalanche will be without Matt Duchene for the next four weeks (and one week of the post season). [ NHL.com ]
- The Toronto Maple Leafs are in panic mode, as they have fallen from second place in the Atlantic Division to fifth in the Division and tenth in the conference. Six games remain and the Leafs will have to jump over two teams to qualify for the playoffs. [ NHL.com ]
- If everything in the Atlantic Division standings remains the same, tonight’s Tampa Bay Lightning and Montreal Canadiens match up will be a preview of the first round. The previous three games between the two teams has either gone to overtime or a shootout, with Tampa winning twice 2-1 and Montreal winning once 2-1; all the makings for a really great round of playoff hockey. [ NHL.com ]
- Tonight marks New York Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault‘s first return to Vancouver since the firing that saw him and John Tortorella trade places. With the Canucks on the playoff bubble and the Rangers safely in the top three, Vigneault probably does not feel as bad as he probably did a few months ago.
Tonight I’ll give the best dressed to the Winnipeg Jets and the Phoenix Coyotes.
