The Florida Panthers, who are visiting the Bell Centre tonight, could inch closer to locking up the Southeast division with a win.
It feels a bit odd to write that sentence, as the Panthers have been bottom feeders for much of my hockey-following existence. Say what you will about hockey in South Florida, it is nice to see this squad emerge as a legitimate playoff team for a change.
Meanwhile, Buffalo and Washington face-off at Verizon Centre for what is easily the contest of the evening. Both teams are tied for eighth in the East with 84 points in 76 games.
No offense Habs, but I will be watching that one.
What about you? Where will you tune in tonight?
