Just The Facts (Mostly Facts)

-Not much has changed for either team over the past few days since they last played. Calgary defeated the Vancouver Canucks 6-3 and Nashville dropped a tough on in OT to the Minnesota Wild 5-4.

-Johnny Gaudreau is the last man standing of the Big Three as he looks to reach the 40 goal mark for the first time ever. He’s currently at 38 goals with only 3 games left.

-Points wise, Johnny is right in the mix. His 111 points is third best overall in the NHL behind Jonathan Huberdeau (115) and Connor McDavid (118).

-Mark Borowiecki could end up breaking his career high in PIM of 154 when he was a member of the Ottawa Senators back in 2016-17. He logged that much time in the box in 70 games that season. He’s currently at 139 in only 54 games, which is a career high average of 2.57 PIM per game. He’s also 4th in the league in fighting majors with 11.

-Nashville, as a team, is feisty and leads the NHL in fight majors with 56. The next closest team? Anaheim with a mere 35.
