Huge slate of hockey tonight - all teams are in action, except for the Blues - but I'll be watching Jets versus Kings in the late window. Why? Los Angeles has been slumping through November; the Kings are 2-5-1 in their last eight and are coming off a pretty poor outing against Las Vegas on Sunday. Jonathan Quick was chased after allowing three goals on nine shots. If the Kings are going to get back on track, a win against a hot Winnipeg team is a good place to start. The Jets (12-5-3) are averaging 3.3 goals per game. Mark Scheifele is on a tear; he ranks ninth in the league with 25 points (11 goals, 14 assists). Meanwhile goalie Connor Hellebuyck is one of the season's best surprises and a huge reason the Jets are legitimate contenders to win the Central.

For the sheer drama of it all, the game of the night has the Montreal Canadiens visiting the Nashville Predators. Even if Shea Weber can't go, as he's questionable with a lower body injury, we'll still have the ever-fascinating P.K. Subban vs. Canadiens plot. And in reality, it's the subplot tonight: Montreal is in a death spiral down the Eastern Conference standings, having gone 0-3-1 in their last four games and being outscored 16-6. The pressure on the team to either make a trade or fire its general manager is intense. The Preds, meanwhile, are 7-3-0 in their last 10 games, and haven't lost in regulation (3-0-4) to the Canadiens at home over the last 12 years.
