Race to the Sin Bin (Jan 4)
Loading up the list of PIM pool players, it's pretty easy to notice that all four hired guns, between the two declared teams, are going tonight, led by Derek & Dan's goons.
Derek Dorsett of the Canucks, the league's PIM leader, will go against the Arizona Coyotes tonight, who are not exactly short on penalty minutes either, and Chris Neil of the Senators will be in St. Louis to take on the Blues.
I would imagine that the Arizona/Vancouver game may be the better game to bet on, when it comes to minutes, since the race in the Pacific Division has some meat to it.
For Wes, Cody McLeod of the Avalanche will see the Los Angeles Kings tonight and Jordin Tootoo of the Devils will see the Detroit Red Wings in town. Neither game are divisional games, but there could be some fireworks in both games, if the right circumstances present themselves.
Dale B.'s top PIM-getter tonight will be Alex Edler of the Canucks, who isn't known for his goonage, rather, he's been getting caught in harsh defensive situations, taking penalties that way. The Coyotes are a quick team, he could be good for a holding call or two.
