1. Will the New Jersey Devils end their seven-game winless streak?
After starting off the season well, the Devils have drastically declined. Injuries to Martin Brodeur and Ilya Kovalchuk likely had a major factor in this. Regardless, New Jersey has gone seven-straight without a win. Can they end the skid against the Boston Bruins?
2. Will the Anaheim Ducks qualify for the playoffs?
Toronto took the first game of the mini-series on Monday night, 4-3. The two teams will meet in New York on Wednesday. With both clubs pushing for the playoffs, two points could go a long way.
4. Will the Bruins take over as the Northeast Division leader?
The Northeast is arguably the most competitive division in the NHL this season, and the Bruins have an opportunity to take over the top spot from the Montreal Canadiens with a win.
5. Will the Vancouver Canucks extend their three-game winning streak?
Vancouver enters competition on Wednesday night with an 8-2-0 record in their last 10. Calgary is 3-7-0 over that span and lost to the Canucks on Saturday night, 5-2.
