Devils 81
Flyers 75
Canadiens 71
Panthers 70
Rangers 70
Sabres 69
Hurricanes 69
Penguins 66

Another key victory (aren't they all "key" victories now?) bumps Coach Pete and his Cats into sixth place in the East. Tomorrow features an afternoon match from Newark against the Devils, the obligatory game thread will go live around noon.

What's ahead among the conference movers-and-shakers this evening? Let's take a peek at what is a slow night schedule-wise, but absolutely worth watching:

  • MON @ PHI, 7p. Doug Janik makes his Habs debut in Philly. W4E say: If you can't get up for this one, you're flatlined. I'll be going for the Flyers, though ultimately the Cats are shooting for Philadelphia's spot. Rough up the Canadiens and move along./
  • PIT @ CHI, 8:30p. The still-hanging-in-there Bylsma Experiment rolls into United Center to face the 76-point 'Hawks. W4E say: Coach Q's troops get back on the winning path after two consecutive "L"s. The nails are being set in Pittsburgh./

Have a great weekend!
