The Preds aren't back in action until tomorrow, but there are plenty of games on tonight's schedule that can impact the Western Conference playoff positions:
Chicago @ Dallas: The Blackhawks still have a shot at the top spot in the West, which would pretty much rule out a matchup with the Preds in the first round.
San Jose @ Calgary: For the Sharks, this will serve as a practice for "eliminating an opponent who is on the ropes". The Flames have only a glimmer of hope to capture the #8 spot, but at least they have a winning record (6-4) in their last 10.
Colorado @ Vancouver: The Avs, however, are really stumbling down the stretch, going 3-6-1 lately. Vancouver has nothing to play for here, so expect Alex Burrows to work on his flopping.
Feel free to follow the action and discuss in the comments below...
