Well, it's a short schedule for Monday night, but still plenty of players in action in the top six. The lead seems to be safe through Monday night, as Clayton has one more game than John, with a 10 point lead. Three of Clayton's top forwards are on the go, which does pose an issue to the gap for John.
Benson and Marcus leads the way among all top six teams with four active players tonight, but Benson would have had five, if Todd Bertuzzi was good to go. Peter would have a fourth if Nathan Horton was feeling up to playing tonight, but I believe he will still be out of the Panthers' line-up.
The biggest game of the night will be here in Calgary, as there are nine players among the top six teams going tonight, including Jarome Iginla and Pavel Datsyuk. This could be a very high-scoring affair tonight, which would bode well for the teams out of first place.
