Are The Red Wings Faltering? Or Will They Come On Strong For The Playoffs? [NHL Live Thread]
Tonight, the Red Wings are stuck up here in the great white north, and let me tell you it is still cold here, as they take on the Edmonton Oilers. Normally, the pick would be pretty obvious, as the Oilers haven't played like the Oilers of the Gretzky era in some time. With one less game played than the Flames or the Canucks, they sit at 3rd in the Northwest Division. However, they are returning home to Rexall Centre after a winning road trip, with victories in two of three games. They have just signed Jordan Eberle to an entry level position and he is likely anxious to show what he can do.
Nik Listrom is trying to get to 1000 points and the Wings themselves are only two wins away from earning 50 wins in four straight seasons. The Wings are strong, as always at this time of year and it is unlikely they will falter, but who knows, it could be one of those games nobody saw coming.

7:00 pm ET
Washington Capitals @ Toronto Maple Leafs
Minnesota Wild @ New York Rangers
