Eight games on the schedule for Thursday night and there are 38 skater games among the top seven and everyone except for Jeremy has a goalie start tonight (supposedly) as well. Let's have a quick peek at the table, shall we?

There is no game tonight, which features a player on each of the top seven teams. I think once it went up to seven, there was a lot less of a chance that that will ever feature.
The busiest game tonight will be the Ducks visiting the Canucks, as there are seven skater games and a start there, mainly taken up by Clayton and John P., who have three players each in the game.
Clayton has the busiest team tonight, with 9 skaters and a goalie going. It's a good night to try and pad the lead on Peter, who only has 5 skaters and a goalie going.
And there you have it. A busy Thursday!
