This is a game of some significance.

Also on tap tonight:

Chicago at Columbus, 7pm Eastern. The Avs are probably a long-shot to catch Chicago, but a BJ win in regulation would still be nice.

Phoenix at Dallas, 9pm Eastern. Dallas (not pictured) has 83 points like Colorado and Phoenix but are seeded 3rd for being first in the Pacifist Division. Since Dallas has more games in hand than Phoenix and 3 more ROW than Colorado, we're rooting for them to win in regulation.

San Jose at LA, 10:30 Eastern. This is one those "damned either way" games. If the Avalanche don't get at least a point, both of these teams could pass them in the standings. I don't think there's a right or wrong choice here - just root for the game to end in regulation.
