PUCK EM - DAY 10 - 10/26 & What We're Watching Tonight

Adam posted the first perfect night of the season with a 5-0 night on Tuesday. That was good enough to steal home ice back from JC despite going 4-1 himself (Brian Elliott's return to St. Louis did him in). Tonight's slate is a small one with four games, and losing home ice on light nights is very easy. Can JC take it back?

Adam - This one is a bit of a dark horse, but I'm looking forward to a rematch of last season's first round playoff match up between the Predators and the Ducks. After being eliminated in seven games on their home ice, Anaheim is looking for a little payback. More importantly, both teams sit a game under .500 and are looking to build some momentum. The Preds are coming off a 5-1 win over Pittsburgh on Saturday, while Anaheim is on the second night of a back-to-back after losing 2-1 in San Jose last night and winning their prior two games.

JC - I'm always a sucker for the Original Six match-ups, and tonight is no different with the Bruins heading south on I-95 to take on the Rangers. There are two sides to the coin with these teams, with injuries between the pipes destabilizing the Bruins (both Tuukka Rask & Anton Khudobin are injured) while the Rangers are looking to extend their winning streak to three games. After Malcom Subban's terrible performance last night (Boston lost 5-0 to Minnesota), relief goalie Zane McIntyre will make his first NHL start tonight at MSG against Henrik Lundqvist.
