Can the Blue Jackets slow down the Red Wings at all?
We've got an entertaining slate of games on tonight's NHL schedule, as all of these games carry playoff implications (all times Central):
|Visitor||Home||Time / Network|
|NY Rangers (48-21-7, 103 PTS)||Winnipeg (35-33-8, 78 PTS)||6:00 p.m.|
|Detroit (46-25-5, 97 PTS)||Columbus (24-45-7, 55 PTS)||6:30 p.m. NBC Sports|
|Los Angeles (37-27-12, 86 PTS)||Calgary (35-27-15, 85 PTS)||8:30 p.m.|
|Dallas (41-30-5, 87 PTS)||Edmonton (31-36-9, 71 PTS)||8:30 p.m.|
|Colorado (40-32-6, 86 PTS)||Vancouver (46-21-9, 101 PTS)||9:00 p.m.|
|San Jose (39-27-10, 88 PTS)||Anaheim (32-33-11, 75 PTS)||9:00 p.m. NBC Sports|
Perhaps the nastiest battle here will be between the Kings and Flames, who are both just below the playoff line right now, and desperately need two points tonight. It will be interesting to see whether Columbus bounces back at all from their drubbing in Detroit on Monday, and if San Jose can stay in the Pacific Division lead. Dallas would win the tiebreaker right now if they end up with the same number of points in the standings.
So who are you pulling for tonight?
