Tonight I’m Gonna Rock You Tonight – March 14th

First Screen Viewing

Stars vs. Wild – 7pm

If you’re under the not-quite-delusion but not-quite-real idea that the Hawks still have a shot at the playoffs, then this is the one to watch and utterly pray ends in regulation. The better result is the Stars winning in regulation, because the Wild can easily be hauled in by the Hawks, who could pull within a point tomorrow if results go their way. After a Dubnyk-inspired five-game winning streak, the Wild have lost four of five, which will happen you have to play a lot of real teams (Nashville twice, San Jose, and Tampa). This is the collapse the Wild did a dress rehearsal for around the deadline, and definitely look poised to embark on a again. Their schedule the rest of the way is pretty brutal, so they kind of need this one. This is something of their last stand. Meanwhile, a win for Dallas would leave them five points above the abyss, and Ben Bishop along (assuming health) probably keeps them from blowing that.

Second Screen Viewing

Bruins vs. Jets – 7pm

I keep hyping the Jets, and yet in the last week they’ve capitulated to the Capitals, Sharks, and Lightning. In an examination period where they were getting cracks at the club of clubs they think they are part of, they pretty much flunked. So here’s another one in the Bruins, who despite my suspicions are the second best team in hockey. Both the Jets and Preds are seemingly intent on losing their stamps to the penthouse of the league and are appearing more and more like a speedbump for the Sharks or Flames or Knights out of the Pacific. This another chance for the Jets to at least claw some of that back. The Bs meanwhile can move six clear of the Leafs for home ice in the first round, whatever that means.
