The NHL schedule is full with 10 games on tap for tonight, including a rematch of the two best teams in the league. The Vegas Golden Knights travel to Tampa Bay to take on the Lightning, in a matchup of the only two 60-point teams in the league. Though they’re not competing directly for the playoffs, the Lightning are a measuring stick for any team this season, and one the Golden Knights will not take lightly.
- Filip Chlapik has been recalled from the AHL by the Ottawa Senators, after the team announced that Jean-Gabriel Pageau suffered an injury in their last game against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Pageau is dealing with an upper-body ailment, leading to Chlapik’s removal from last night’s Belleville Senators game after just the first period.
- Mirco Mueller, coming back from an injury for the New Jersey Devils, has been sent to the AHL on a conditioning assignment. Mueller hasn’t played since the middle of November, but could force his way back into the New Jersey lineup once he shows he’s healthy enough.
