PLAYERS TO WATCH

 1.  With Cory Schnieder playing last night in Dallas, we’ll likely see Martin Brodeur in net.  This may be the last time we ever see the Future hall of famer play in Smashville.

2. Jaromir Jager is hot.  He has three two assists games in his past four.  Ten points total in his past eight games.

3.  Travis Zajac is starting to emerge as one of the best young players on the team.  The centerman has six points in his past five games.
