Back by popular demand, here are your Puck Previews: Spotlighting the key games in NHL action, news and views as well as general frivolity. Make sure to stop back here for the nightly Three Stars when the games are finished.
Preview: New York Rangers at Winnipeg Jets, 8 p.m. ET. The first game for the Rangers since John Tortorella decided not to protect his players from criticism and say "we sucked." New York is 2-7-0 when Henrik Lundqvist allows more than two goals. The Jets are 3-0-1 in their last four.
Preview: Pittsburgh Penguins at Toronto Maple Leafs, 7 p.m. ET. Did the Toronto Star change its format to that of the Onion? Because this is an actual headline: “Sidney Crosby overshadowed by Pittsburgh Penguins linemate Chris Kunitz.” Ben Scrivens gets the nod for the Leafs.
Preview: Washington Capitals at Carolina Hurricanes, 7 p.m. ET. Is the season on the line tonight for the Capitals? They’ve been outscored 13-3 during an 0-3-0 skid. Michal Neuvirth faces Dan Ellis, rather than Caps Killer Justin Peters.
