New York Islanders @ Ottawa Senators

To be entirely honest, I'm not going to watch this game as I'll be paying attention to the Canada vs. USA World Juniors game which is on at the same time. However, if I did watch this game, I'd be paying attention to the following:

  • Ryan Shannon - the guy went without a goal until three games ago. Now he has four goals in three games. Can he keep up this goal streak? I hope so.
  • Milan Michalek - This is a man that is in pretty dire need of some points. Let's see if he can use his speed effectively and get a goal or assist tonight.
  • Anton Volchenkov - will he once again offer a warm welcome to John Tavares?
  • Matt Moulson - this guy's incredible season is one of the best hockey stories of the year. Hopefully the Sens can shut him and his line down.

As always, feel free to join in on the fun in the comments, and have a happy new year!
