For the first time in two and a half weeks, the Hurricanes will be in action, as they play host to the Bruins.
Since the Bolts lost last night, the Canes will have a chance to widen their divisional lead with a win tonight. Also, if there is a Canes win, coupled with a Penguins loss, Pittsburgh will be the first team mathematically eliminated from Presidents Cup contention. Of course nobody in their right mind would consider them to be a "contender", but they could be officially taken off the radar with 24 games to play.
When Cory Stillman scores his next goal (which I predict will come during the second period tonight), he will have 200 for his career. Not a staggering accomplishment, but a really cool milestone to reach anyway. Congrats in advance on that.
Speaking of staggering accomplishments, today is the 43rd birthday of Ron Francis. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CAP!!!! Of course reaching the age of 43 isn't the staggering accomplishment. I'm talking about 549/1249/1798.
