1. How will the first game of the "new" rivalry play out between the Blackhawks and Blues?
With the Detroit Red Wings in the Eastern Conference, the Blackhawks find themselves missing a division rival. Enter the St. Louis Blues. While these teams have been "rivals" for more than 30-years, the departure of Detroit -- and the talent level on both squads -- has brightened the spotlight on this matchup.
2. Will the Blues remain undefeated?
St. Louis is a chic pick as the 2014 Stanley Cup champion. It's only two games, but the club is off to a fantastic start registering an 11-2 goals ratio. Can they keep it up against Chicago?
3. How will Jonathan Quick rebound?
Poor Jonathan Quick. Largely touted as one of the game's top-goaltenders, Quick allowed an ice-length goal when he dropped his stick against the New York Rangers. Quick was obviously upset in his post-game availability. How will he respond against the Ottawa Senators?
4. How will the Senators perform without captain Jason Spezza?
Spezza will be unavailable to play due to a groin issue. Coach paul MacLean said he wants Spezza to properly heal so that the injury doesn't become chronic. How will the team perform without their top-line center?
5. Will the Flames win their first home game of the season?
Despite low expectations, the Flames have recorded a point in every game this season. The club hosts the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night and looks to register their first home win of the early season. Will they?
