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: Chicago Blackhawks at Colorado Avalanche, 9 p.m. ET. The Hawks vs. the streak breakers. Said Patrick Kane: “I think you'll see a pretty good effort from us. It's kind of revenge after what happened. They broke the streak."
Preview: Minnesota Wild at Vancouver Canucks, 10 p.m. ET. The fourth and final meeting between the division rivals, with Vancouver having won two of three. Roberto Luongo time again for the ‘Nucks. Minny is 0-9-2 in its last 11 in Vancouver.
Preview: New York Rangers at Carolina Hurricanes, 7 p.m. ET . The Hurricanes have a serious advantage in the Staals category. Marian Gaborik, Brad Richards and Rick Nash are all on the same line again, and hopefully they give the Bluehshirts some N-R-G. (Ugh.)
