    The team with the second best road record takes on the team with the best home record in the league.

    The Sharks have opened up a 5 point gap on the Flames while the Kings, Ducks and Wild (WC2) are now 2 points ahead. Must-win game to keep pace with the latter three teams.

    Brouwer comes back from injury.

    Projected lines:
    Gaudreau-Monahan-Ferland
    Tkachuk-Backlund-Frolik
    Bennett-Jankowski-Hathaway
    Lazar-Stajan-Brouwer

    Gio-Hamilton
    Brodie-Hamonic
    Kulak-Stone

    Rittich

    Vegas:

    Marchessault-Karlsson-Smith
    Perron-Haula-Tuch
    Carpenter-Eakin-Nosek
    Hyka-Matteau-Lindberg

    McNabb-Schmidt
    Engelland-Sbisa (they're actually winning with this second pair)
    Miller-Hunt

    With it being his first game back there is no way that we will see Brouwer shoe-horned into the PP and PK is there? I mean even GG isn't that dumb, is he?

    Ahh who am I kidding of course he will be.

    Prediction if Brouwer sees no PP time, no PK time and under 10 mins ES: Flames win 5-1 (PP 2 for 4)

    Pp time, Pk time, 10+ mins for Brouwer- Vegas wins 5-1 (PP 0 for 6)

    I'm... more confident in winning the next game. But go Flames! Hopefully their mothers inspire them to play their hardest and also bring them orange slices for the intermission.

    Hope the moms feed them a good pre-game meal. This team is so schizo that I think we win this.

    I actually thought we played them really well in our first meeting until the last minute implosion. Going to a concert tonight so won't get to watch, but I have more faith in beating Vegas then I have when we play the Oilers. Go Flames!

    Brouwer's on the 4th line and Hathaway stays on the 3rd according to Wills' tweet.

    Good measuring stick.
    Played a really good Bruins team perfectly outside of the OT gaffe.

    Vegas is a top team in the league (how weird is that to say)... have to have a good showing. A few more losses and we're going to be out of the mix.

    And stop drinking that Gatorade! It's all sugar. Have some milk instead.

    All I have to say about this Mom's trip, is that Christ Jagr's not on the team anymore.

    Hathaway is barely a 13th fwd
    Not sure what he has done in the last month to earn the spot

    Brower on 4th line is ok considering they have to pay him all that money

    Without a drastic shakeup of all the lines, it really doesn't make any kind of real difference whether's it's Hathaway or Brouwer on the third line.

    Hathaway is a fine 4th liner. Brouwer is an overpaid but tenable 4th liner (for the time being anyway). Lazar is an fine 4th liner. Klimchuk/Foo/Mangiapane/*insert warm body here* would probably be acceptable 4th liners. But none of them are legit 3rd line scoring threats right now. And unfortunately neither Bennett nor Jankowski are capable of carrying a line at this point.

    Guluztan could try spreading out the wealth to create three scoring lines (i.e., separate Gaudreau and Monahan, Backlund and Tkachuk) but he won't. So it's pretty much wait until Treliving makes a trade either now or in the off season.

    As someone who has to be up at 5:30 in the AM I also have this sentiment.

    I will watch, but I will regret.
