55 Detroit Red Wings
Though aging, this team is much deeper than many realize.
66 Dallas Stars

How's this for a pilot concept: Everybody Loves Yashin.
89 Toronto Maple Leafs
Blake? Lindros? Tkachuk? Who will be the next famous Leaf?
910 Philadelphia Flyers
Eric is gone and largely forgotten. But the play of Primeau and Gagne, gives Flyers plenty of strength at the pivot.
108 Vancouver Canucks
The Cat Snaps Back. Potvin rebounds from awful game to play well against the Stars -- but Canucks still lose fourth straight.
1113 Edmonton Oilers
There goes the modeling contract: Defenseman Ulanov takes puck in face, and more than 20 stitches, for second time this season.
1212 Pittsburgh Penguins
They can score, they can grapple, but if they don't find a goalie, all else is for naught.

1616 Los Angeles Kings
Good start to road trip (3-0) keeps them close on Oilers' heels.
1717 Boston Bruins
Are they eating Peppermint Patties? Win or lose, they show sensational life.
1818 Carolina Hurricanes
The talented tide-turner: Ozo's sloppy return puts prompt end to Canes' nine-game unbeaten streak.
1919 Calgary Flames
You shouldn't make him mad: Iginla bloodied in fight with Shanny, then comes back to key win over Wings.

2525 Minnesota Wild
Look familiar? Coach Lemaire watches Devils dominate Wild in a 4-2 win.
2626 Columbus Blue Jackets
A long-awaited scoring surge by Selivanov -- he usually has about one good month a year -- would give Jackets' much-needed punch.
