What I’m Watching:

The Thanksgiving Day Special, Chicago at Anaheim, Vancouver at Columbus, and Minnesota at Dallas.

Players to Watch:

  •  Nick Spaling (Penguins) was skating on a line with Hornqvist and Crosby – kid has come a long way from being a 3rd liner for Nashville.
  • Bryan Little (Jets) has a three game goal streak.
  • David Pastrnak (Bruins) has graduated to skating on the top line with Marchand and Bergeron during practice. Odds are he starts the game there as well.
  • After coming off being shutout last night, look for some offense to come out of the Oilers – I’m keeping my eye on Taylor Hall.
  • Blue Jackets Tim Erixon will slot in for Kevin Connauton tonight
  • Keep an eye on the new 3rd line for the Canucks – all centers. Richardson, Vey, & Matthias are skating together.
