Hockey Roundup -- 3/20/07
New Jersey Devils @ Toronto Maple Leafs 7:30 EDT FSNY2, TSN
All you need to know about this one is the war is on. Anyone that tells you any different doesn't know his ass from his elbow. After the Janssen hit on Kaberle in Jersey...would you expect anything different? Darcy Tucker is in the lineup for this one....but Tomas Kaberle will not play tonight....probably best he stays out for this game. Devils come in two points up on Pittsburgh with a game in hand...and the Leafs come in with 78 points, two points behind 8th seeded Carolina with one game in hand. Expect a low scoring tilt with alot of physical action behind the play, around the play and all over the place. The GDT is right here....THE NHL ARENA
In other action......on national TV tonight....
Phoenix Coyotes @ Minnesota Wild 8PM EDT VS.
Alrighty Phoenix travels into Phoenix to battle against one of the hottest teams out there in the Wild....the Wild are a franchise high 18 games over .500 (42-24-7) and could win their first ever Northwest Division title. Niklas Backstrom has supplanted Manny Fernandez as the #1 goalie in Minny....all he's done is backstopped this team and helped turned them into a force out West. Brian Rolston leads the offense up against Cujo and the Coyotes...catch the GDT on THE NHL ARENA and go WILD.
