Well, the big game in Calgary was just that... a big game, as an assault on the lead. Marcus' squad seemed to have a part in every goal in the game, as he finished with a huge 7-point night and a leap into second place in the Draft.

Tuesday should figure to be a pretty big night for points, as there are eight games on the schedule and plenty of players on the go in the top six. The busiest game of the night will be in Nashville, as the Ducks come to visit. There will be seven active players in the top six, all from second place down. So, if it's a high scoring affair and a Nashville win, everyone from second to sixth can make a big move on first place.

There will also be numerous players missing from the top six on Tuesday night, especially in the Minnesota/New York game, where there would have been seven active players, but now there is only four, as Michal Rozsival, Marek Zidlicky and Mikko Koivu are all out of the line-ups tonight.

There is a chance that Keith Tkachuk may suit up for the Blues tonight, but since there is no confirmation of that, he'll remain in red for today.
