Busy slate of games for Wednesday

Speed preview with so many games.

Ottawa (9-8-1) at Carolina (8-9-0), 7 p.m. ET, TSN2

There's a TSN2? Really? How 'bout that. -Ottawa 4, Carolina 2.

Tampa Bay (8-7-2) at Islanders (4-10-3), 7 p.m.

Two teams that don't have NHL goalies, so this'll probably be a 2-1 game. -Tampa 3, New York 1.

Vancouver (10-4-3) at Pittsburgh (9-8-2), 7 p.m., TSN

Ever have tickets to your team's game but you don't want to go because you think you'll get slaughtered? Yeah, that's me tonight. I don't tailgate or often go to bars before a game, but tonight is one where I'll have three beers before faceoff. -Vancouver 6, Pittsburgh 2, and the "2" might be high.

Boston (9-5-1) at Rangers (10-7-1), 7 p.m., Versus

Two teams with really good NHL goalies, so it'll probably be like a 5-3 game. -Boston 4, New York 2.

Buffalo (7-9-3) at Washington (13-4-1), 7 p.m.

Ryan Miller owned the Capitals once, but won't do it again, not in Washington. -Washington 5, Buffalo 2.

Florida (7-8-0) at Atlanta (7-8-3), 7 p.m.

The Southeast Division up to its old tricks, ladies and gentlemen. -Atlanta 4, Florida 3.

St. Louis (9-4-3) at Detroit (11-3-1), 7:30 p.m.

What happened to the Blues? They've given up more goals in the last four games, all losses, than in their previous 12 games combined. -Detroit 4, St. Louis 1.

Anaheim (10-8-2) at Minnesota (8-6-2), 8 p.m.

Can my Wild fan friends tape Minnesota's power play and send it to Pittsburgh's main office, please? Thanks. -Minnesota 3, Anaheim 1.

San Jose (9-5-2) at Colorado (9-7-1), 9 p.m.

The Avalanche haven't strung together two wins or losses yet this month. It's also their turn not to score much. -San Jose 4, Colorado 2

Phoenix (7-5-5) at Calgary (7-9-0), 9:30 p.m.

Can we all agree Jarome Iginla isn't going anywhere and not get my hopes up? -Phoenix 4, Calgary 1.

Chicago (9-9-2) at Edmonton (4-9-3), 9:30 p.m.

Half of the Oilers' wins have come against the defending champions. Does Corey Crawford get another start? He ended Chicago's three-game losing streak. -Chicago 4, Edmonton 2.

Columbus (9-6-0) at Los Angeles (12-4-0), 10:30 p.m.

How do you go against the Kings at home at this point? -Los Angeles 4, Columbus 1.
