The Morning After:
Flyers 3, Islanders 2
Senators 3, Rangers 1
Blackhawks 4, Flames 2
Coyotes 3, Ducks 0
Blues 3, Canucks 2
Predictions record: 3-2
My 3 stars of the night:
1. Ilya Bryzgalov, PHX (26 Saves, Shutout)… Phoenix was handled by Anaheim in their first two meetings, but ‘Bryz’ shut the door last night.
2. Alexander Steen, STL (2 Goals, 1 Assist)
3. Chris Kelly, OTT (3 Goals)
If the playoffs started today…
1) WSH vs. 8) ATL
2) PHI vs. 7) BOS
3) MTL vs. 6) NYR
4) PIT vs. 5) TB
1) DET vs. 8) CBJ
2) DAL vs. 7) STL
3) VAN vs. 6) LA
4) PHX vs. 5) CHI
Devils @ Penguins, 7:00 ET
Maple Leafs @ Capitals, 7:00
Predators @ Thrashers, 7:00
Stars @ Blue Jackets, 7:00
Sharks @ Red Wings, 7:30
Game of the Night:
San Jose Sharks @ Detroit Red Wings
7:30 ET… TV: VERSUS
Overall: Sharks (12-9-4) … Red Wings (17-4-3)
Last Ten: Sharks (4-4-2) … Red Wings (7-1-2)
Away/Home: Sharks (5-5-2) … Red Wings (10-1-2)
Season Series: 1-0 Red Wings
Players to watch:
SJ- Ryane Clowe
Clowe only has four points in the last seven games, but needs to step up tonight.
DET- Henrik Zetterberg
Zetterberg usually fares well vs. San Jose, and had four points in their last meeting.
SJ- Antero Niittymaki (2010/11 stats: 8-3-3, 2.34 GAA)
DET- Jimmy Howard (2010/11 stats: 15-2-2, 2.38 GAA)
SJ- Devin Setoguchi and Jason Demers (upper body, out), Niclas Wallin (leg, questionable), Kent Huskins (upper body, doubtful)
DET- Mike Modano (wrist, out)
As it appears right now, the Red Wings have returned to their dominant ways by separating themselves from the pack in a crazy Western Conference. However, this game is more important to the Sharks, who need to find consistency on the road. I think that gives them a chance in this one (if they play desperate), but I still like the Wings tonight.
Prediction: Red Wings 3, Sharks 2 (OT)
Lock of the Night:
Capitals over Maple Leafs… Washington is coming off two straight losses and may take it out on the Leafs tonight.
