PLAYERS TO WATCH

Nashville:  #15 F Craig Smith.  With Patric Hornqvist likely out of the lineup tonight, it looks like Smith will get a look on the top line.  He has 14 points in 23 games so, the promotion is well deserved.

Phoenix: #23 D Oliver Ekman-Larsson.  The young defenseman has 17 points and is an eye popping +11 so far this season.  He has by far been the Coyotes best player so far this season.
