WHAT WE'RE WATCHING TONIGHTAdam - The last time St. Louis and Dallas played each other was in Game 7 of their Western Conference Semifinal series last May. The Blues ended the Stars season with a 6-1 win, and things haven't been going well for Dallas since then. They're 3-4-2 out of the gate, they're on a three game winless streak, and have dealt with a rash of injures early (Patrick Sharp & Ales Hemsky to name a couple). St. Louis started off the year strong, but it's been a rough road lately. The Blues have only scored five goals in the past 366:40 of hockey (about six games), and were spanked by the Rangers on Tuesday 5-0. Both teams should play with some desperation to try and snap their respective skids.
St. Louis @ Dallas - 8:30PM Eastern - American Airlines Center
JC - Tonight the Rangers welcome Connor McDavid and Cam Talbot to the World's Most Famous Arena. The Oilers started off hot with seven wins, but have dropped their last two games. The Rangers also have seven wins, but have won their last two games. This will be McDavid's first game at MSG since he was injured when Edmonton visited last season. It will also be Cam Talbot's first game at The Garden since being traded by the Blueshirts. The Oilers captain won't be the only young star to watch tonight, as the emerging Jimmy Vesey has nine points in ten games and has been hot lately.
