WHAT WE'RE WATCHING TONIGHTAdam - This one is too easy. Edmonton kicks off a five game road trip with their first stop in Toronto tonight. That means it's going to be all about Connor McDavid and Auston Matthews. This should be a fast paced game with a lot of North/South action. Both Cam Talbot (7-2-0 / 2.04 GAA / .936 save %) and Frederik Andersen (2-3-2 / 3.67 GAA / .876 save %) should see a lot of rubber, and the Oilers definitely have the edge there. Edmonton is 7-2 and coming off a 2-0 loss at home to Ottawa, while the Leafs have lost two in a row to Montreal and the Islanders.

JC - Dallas was beaten at home by Columbus last week 3-0. The Stars have stumbled out of the gate and desperately need to get this victory to get back on track. They're coming off a 4-0 shutout by Minnesota on Saturday. The Blue Jackets are returning home from their west coast swing, in which they went a surprising 2-2, including a 4-0 shutout of Anaheim. They'll continue to lean on the sturdy play of Sergei Bobrovsky, posting a .940 save percentage so far this season.
