- Lightning beat Coyotes
- Sharks beat Penguins in overtime
- Kings beat Ducks
- Oilers beat Avalanche
Things are also starting to shake out in the West. Dallas (5 games) and Anaheim (4) are on extended losing streaks, providing an opening for a streaking CBJ to fly through. Nashville has two straight losses as well. And, as we've been reminded, the 12th place CBJ are only 4 points out of 5th place in the West. Madness.

- Red Wings over Stars
- Kings over Wild
- Preds over Blackhawks - But the CBJ's chances still improve as long as the game is decided in regulation
- Canucks over Blues
