Tonight's soundtrack: 1-2-3-4 by the very lovely Feist (yeah, I have a little crush on her) -- Because each game in the tight Western Conference is essentially a four-point swing. Well, except for that one involving the Flames.
Games of the Night: Kings/Red Wings, Blackhawks/Avalanche, and Stars/Sharks. The Western Conference will look different tomorrow morning.
Los Angeles Kings at Detroit Red Wings, 7:30 PM ET
Can the Kings replicate their victory last week over the Wings? Jimmy Howard gets the start tonight for Detroit -- but will it be the good or bad version of him?
Atlanta Thrashers at Ottawa Senators, 7:30 PM ET
The five-game report card for Atlanta's games 26 - 30. Another week of ups and downs for the Sens.
New York Islanders at Nashville Predators, 8 PM ET
Murphy's Law seems to be in full effect for the Isles. Here's something practical: some fancy-scmancy road information for fans going to the game.
Chicago Blackhawks at Colorado Avalanche, 9 PM ET
How will Chicago handle Colorado's speedy forwards? Injuries are a way of life for the Avalanche.
Columbus Blue Jackets at Calgary Flames, 9 PM ET
Jackets fans feel a sense of deja vu when they see Calgary's situation. Charity points are better than no points at all for Calgary.
Dallas Stars at San Jose Sharks, 10:30 PM ET
What can the Stars do to improve their road record? With question marks surrounding the Sharks goaltending, this save by prospect Alex Stalock has to make Doug Wilson feel good.
