1. Will Sidney Crosby add to his league-leading 12 points against the Philadelphia Flyers?
Crosby registered three points on Tuesday night and enters competition on Thursday as the league's leader in points. He has registered a point in all six games this season and will look to extend that streak against Philadelphia.
2. Will Claude Giroux add to his point total?
Giroux has only recorded two points in seven games this season, which has brought a lot of attention on him. While the Flyers captain has yet to score a goal, he has registered primary assists in consecutive games and has seemingly found chemistry with AHL call-up Tye McGinn.
3. Can Chicago and St. Louis match the quality of their first meeting?
Considered two of the best teams in the Western Conference, the Blackhawks and Blues meet for a second time in eight days on Thursday night. St. Louis came out on top last time out but Chicago has won three straight since the loss.
Thomas opted to take last year off in order to focus on his personal life. Thursday night will mark the first time he faces the Boston Bruins, the team which he backstopped to a Stanley Cup championship in 2011. Will anything of note occur?
5. Will the New Jersey Devils record their first win of the season?
The Devils enter Thursday night with an 0-3-3 record. Will the Ottawa Senators be the first notch in their 2013-14 bedpost?
