- The Blue Jackets are clinging to the final Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference, with several teams on their tail. They meet up with a Flyers team that has fallen twice in a row in the shootout. However, the Jackets are winless against the Flyers at the Wells Fargo Center. Kimmo Timonen will be back in the lineup for the Flyers. Columbus Defenseman Ryan Murray will make the trip to Philly, but will not return. He was originally expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a knee injury. [ NHL.com ]
- The Dallas Stars enter tonight’s game with the Carolina Hurricanes on a three game winning streak and a game in hand on the Phoenix Coyotes. They have an outstanding opportunity tonight to put some breathing room between them and Phoenix with a win.
- The Maple Leafs finally ended their losing streak at eight games. Now they try to win consecutive games for the first time in a month.
- The Winnipeg Jets playoff hopes could come to end tonight against Pittsburgh. A regulation loss coupled with a Dallas Stars win will be enough to send Winnipeg to the golf course. [ NHL.com ]
Tonight I will give the best dressed to the Minnesota Wild and the Chicago Blackhawks.
