'Aw, cool. We're back together again.' - Bruce Bennett
A daily feature which asks the five hardest-hitting questions imaginable about this day in the NHL. Will our quandaries be answered? (That doesn't count as one of the five questions.)
1. Will the New York Rangers end their three-game losing streak on Monday night?
Entering the season as one of the favorites to represent the Eastern Conference in the Stanley Cup, the Rangers have struggled to live up to those expectations. Heading into Monday night's contest against the Carolina Hurricanes on a three-game slide, the Rangers will look to get themselves back on track.
After an extended absence from one another, head coach John Tortorella is expected to reunite Gaborik, Nash and Richards on the top-line. With their team struggling to put wins together of late, will this high-powered line lead the way against Carolina?
The Lightning have won their last three meetings against the Flyers when hosting them in Tampa Bay. In addition, the Lightning has held Philadelphia to one goal in each of their last three meetings at home. Will they continue the trend on Monday night?
When the two division rivals last met on March 10, the Wild managed to steal first place from the Canucks with a 4-2 win. With both teams entering Monday night with 32 points, can the Canucks exact revenge?
5. Will Ray Emery still have an undefeated record at night's end?
Emery has appeared in 13 games this season and has compiled a 10-0-0 record over that span. He is expected to start Monday's game against the Colorado Avalanche. Will he remain undefeated?
