Overall there are 10 games on the NHL schedule, but there are two afternoon games already underway. Some of the games to keep an eye on this evening are:
- The Predators are in Detroit to take on their former Central Division rivals. These two teams had one of the most underrated rivalries in the NHL for a number of years and they’ll rekindle that tonight.
- It’s always fun when the Avalanche and Wild get together. Devan Dubnyk is play as good as anyone lately and Semyon Varlamov continues to try to battle through—should be interesting.
- Lastly, the night caps off with a rematch of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals. The Bruins have good memories in Vancouver having won the Stanley Cup in Game 7 there that year, but their game last night is one they’d like to forget.

Columbus Blue Jackets – Sergei Bobrovsky / Curtis McElhinney – Bobrovsky started last night, stopped 31 of 32 shots in a shootout loss. Due to the back-to-back, McElhinney could start, but we aren’t expecting to find out until 5:30 pm ET when John Tortorella meets with the media.
Tampa Bay Lightning – Ben Bishop / Andrei Vasilevskiy – The Lightning did not announce a goalie this morning and they have a back-to-back on Saturday and Sunday, so there is no saying who will start tonight. Their netminder likely won’t be confirmed until 8:30 pm ET, when coach Jon Cooper meets with the media.
