Five things to know about tonight's NHL games ...

1. Bobrovsky vs. Flyers. Columbus is 8-0-1 since Nathan Horton made his debut, but the focus tonight will likely be on Sergei Bobrovsky, who is facing the Flyers for the first time since they deemed him expendable.

2. Leafs still streaking. Speaking of unbeaten streaks, the Leafs are looking to push theirs to seven games. They've got a pretty good shot against Dallas, who has just 2 wins in 11 games.

3. Crosby murders the Islanders. Sid's a point machine against just about everybody, but the Islanders are special. In 44 regular-season games against the future Brooklynites, he's got 80 points.

4. Blues struggling. St. Louis is 2-4-0 in their last 6, and their most recent outing was an abysmal 7-1 drubbing at the hands of the New Jersey Devils. The Rangers, including newly-acquired Kevin Klein, making his debut, hope to take advantage of their struggles.

5. Wild get Parise back. While most of the Parise talk today has focused around that ridiculous Team USA Opening Ceremony outfit, the bigger news for Wild fans is that he'll be back in the lineup after missing 14 games with a foot injury.

Bold prediction: Both the Leafs and Blue Jackets continue their streaks.
