St. Louis Blues

It was a traumatic sight when Bouwmeester suddenly fell from his bench as the St. Louis Blues were battling the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday. The team’s medical team quickly came to revive the defenseman with a defibrillator as he was said to be unconscious after his drop. He was then sent to UC Irvine Medical Center where he is currently undergoing tests while recovering. With the decision to postpone the match, St. Louis is left with a precarious one-point edge over Colorado at the peak of the Central Division,  73-72.

Players to watch: David Perron (GP 56, G 23, A 31, PTS 54), Ryan O’Reilly (GP 56, G 10, A 39, PTS 49), Brayden Schenn (GP 56, G 20, A 26, PTS 46).

Vegas Golden Knights

The Golden Knights are in pursuit of the top spot in the Pacific Division, trailing the Vancouver Canucks by just three points. Their chase, however, took a hit after they fell in their last two games including a disastrous 4-0 setback against Minnesota on Tuesday. It was a grueling stretch for Vegas after they played nine of their last 10 games away from home. Their return inside the T-Mobile arena could spell a flip in their fortune as they are now scheduled to begin a five-game homestand with four assignments being against teams outside the playoff bracket. 

Players to watch: Mark Stone (GP 58, G 20, A 33, PTS 53), Max Pacioretty (GP 58, G 24, A 28, PTS 52), Reilly Smith (GP 58, G 21, A 23, PTS 44).
