Five things to know about tonight's NHL games ...
2. Semyon Varlamov starts for the Avalanche. "Why wait?" was Patrick Roy's answer to getting asked about putting Varlamov in net against Dallas. If the team was going allow him to travel and re-join them, tonight is better than Saturday, when the franchise will retire Adam Foote's No. 52.
3. Paul MacLean has advice for anyone growing a mustache for Movember. "Use good fertilizer. Molson Canadian works for me." via.
4. Jonas Brodin is back for the Wild. The 20-year old blue liner hasn't played since Oct. 22 after suffering a broken cheekbone when he took a puck to the face. During his return, he'll be sporting the full cage for protection.
5. Panthers seek revenge. In their first meeting this season, the Blues thumped Florida 7-0. That, of course, adds some motivation for the Panthers to avoid a repeat. Said head coach Kevin Dineen: "You get beat bad, a team spanks you, you know what? We're all professionals, we all have pride, we know we took a really good kicking there, so that's how you react."
Bold Prediction: Varlamov and the Avalanche beat the Stars 4-2.
