What I’m Watching:

Nashville at Toronto – with Bernier starting against the Preds, it could be quite the match up. Pittsburgh at Montreal will either be a tight game ending with goose eggs at the end of regulation or a complete blow out in either direction. Tampa Bay at New York Islanders – after last night’s thrashing of the Rangers, did Tampa use up all their allotted goals for the state of New York? (Probably not.)

Player(s) to Watch:

  • Filip Forsberg (Predators) continues to dominate all categories for rookies while rocking a 56.3% CorsiFor at Even Strength (for those non-fancy stat people, that’s pretty good). He has 7 goals and 12 points in his past 7 games
  • Jori Lehtera (Blues) has a 7-game point streak with 5 goals and 11 points in that span
  • Jaden Schwartz (Blues) has a point in 6 straight, with 2 goals and 10 points
  • Cody Franson (Leafs) has 2 goals and 9 points in his past 7 games.
  • Steven Stamkos (Lightning) has points in 6 straight games (4 goals, 5 assists) and 9 of his past 10 (6 goals, 8 assists)
  • Tyler Johnson (Lightning) has 20 points (5 goals, 15 assists) in his past 16 games.
  • Ryan Callahan has 9 points (4 goals, 5 assists) in his past 6.
  • Brock Nelson scored his 8th goal of the season on Saturday.
  • Jaroslav Halak has allowed 5 goals during his 4-game winning streak.
  • Joel Ward (Capitals) ranks tied for second in the NHL in shooting percentage this season.
  • Olli Maatta (Penguins) will play tonight.

  1. Just wanted to point out that the game before the Rangers game was against the Islanders and the Lightning scored five goals then too. There’s plenty of scoring to go around! 😀
