New Jersey (8-15-2) at Philadelphia (15-7-4), 1 p.m. ET
Not often you see games where one team has nearly double the points of the other (though we'll see a lot with the Islanders.)
Philadelphia 5, New Jersey 1
San Jose (12-8-4) at Montreal (16-8-2), 2 p.m., RDS
The Sharks don't really have a long list of wins over quality teams this season. Maybe that'll change.
Montreal 3, San Jose 2
Buffalo (10-13-3) at Ottawa (11-14-1), 7 p.m., CBC
This is a fairly ugly matchup but it might not be the worst one of the night.
Ottawa 3, Buffalo 1
Pittsburgh (17-8-2) at Columbus (14-9-1), 7 p.m.
Sidney Crosby's on fire. The bad news: The Blue Jackets should be stinging after Friday's embarrassment and come out with a message to send.
Pittsburgh 4, Columbus 2
Boston (14-8-2) at Toronto (8-12-4), 7 p.m., NHL Network
I dunno, does Tuukka Rask get a chance to bolster his confidence against the Maple Leafs? With Tim Thomas making 78 saves on 79 shots in his last two games, I'd doubt it.
Boston 3, Toronto 1
Atlanta (13-10-3) at Washington (18-7-2), 7 p.m.
Congratulations on your six-game winning streak, Atlanta. Here's Pittsburgh and Washington back-to-back to see how good you really are.
Washington 5, Atlanta 2
Colorado (13-9-3) at Tampa Bay (14-9-3), 7:30 p.m., RDS
The Lightning's goaltending is such a disaster I'm waiting for them to send in the National Guard.
Tampa Bay 5, Colorado 3
Minnesota (11-11-3) at Dallas (15-8-1), 8 p.m.
Still trying to figure out how the Stars are in first.
Dallas 4, Minnesota 3
Florida (10-14-0) at Phoenix (12-7-5), 8 p.m.
The Coyotes can't rely on the road team's fans to fill their arena like they often do this time.
Phoenix 2, Florida 1
Carolina (11-11-3) at Nashville (11-8-5), 8 p.m.
Can we fly in Carolina's ice girls for this one? It'd give us a reason to watch.
Carolina 4, Nashville 2
St. Louis (12-9-3) at Edmonton (9-12-4), 10 p.m., CBC
The Blues are only five points ahead of the Oilers. Remember when St. Louis was good?
St. Louis 3, Edmonton 2
Detroit (17-4-2) at Los Angeles (14-10-0), 10:30 p.m.
The old, the established, vs. the young, the upstarts.
Detroit 5, Los Angeles 2
