1. Will the Stars' goaltending woes continue?
Getting Kari Lehtonen back was supposed to signal the end of the sieve that had become the Stars goaltending, yet the elite netminder allowed five goals in a forgettable game for all involved. Facing off against the Blues on Sunday, Lehtonen will be facing a team that has struggled to score in recent weeks -- aside from putting four goals in the net against Edmonton on Friday night.
Luongo is expected to start in his first game on Sunday since allowing eight goals against the Detroit Red Wings on Feb. 24. Luongo's strong play this season has led some speculation that perhaps it will be Cory Schneider that is traded; was the poor performance against Detroit just a fluke? He'll be facing a struggle Calgary team, so perhaps the test won't exactly be that tough.
3. Will the Habs or Bruins sit on top of the East after Sunday?
The Canadiens lost in overtime on Saturday to the Penguins but earned a valuable point; now they take on the surging Bruins in a battle for the top spot in the Northeast division and the No. 1 spot in the Eastern Conference. Games between the Bruins and Habs have always been intense; Sunday's game could be even moreso with what is on the line.
4. Will Carolina start to pull away in the Southeast?
The Hurricanes have had a strong surge under new coach Kirk Muller and find themselves in the top spot in their division and -- by default -- No. 3 in the East. The Hurricanes have a two-point lead on the Winnpeg Jets and five points over the stumbling Lightning; Sunday's contest against the basement-dwelling Panthers can go a long way towards further building that lead.
5. Will the Blackhawks keep winning?
Perhaps a divisional game against the Detroit Red Wings, on the road, is what will finally end the record-breaking streak. Perhaps?
