As for tonight's games we need to keep an eye on in the Western Conference?
Anaheim @ Phoenix, 7:00 p.m.: The Ducks aren't out if it, despite their 13th-place position in the West. They are just 5 points out of 8th spot, with a game in hand on Detroit, but face the surprisingly tough Phoenix Coyotes, who have geared up for a playoff run.
St. Louis @ Colorado, 8:00 p.m.: The 10th-place Blues are still hanging around as well, thanks to a 5-game win streak. The Avalanche are just 3 points ahead of Nashville in 6th, so who do we pull for here? Either way, this is one game we don't want to go to overtime.
Remember, there's a free preview of NHL Center Ice still running (through Monday), so if you check around you can probably catch these games on your cable/satellite package.
