There's a 50-50 chance that the NHLPA will accept the current realignment proposal.

The major concern is that it will be easier to make the playoffs in the Western Conference than the Eastern Conference, given that there will be 14 West teams to 16 East teams. Both the Columbus Blue Jackets and Detroit Red Wings are currently planning to shift to the Eastern Conference, so some simply want to keep one of the two in the West. However, Columbus and Detroit will both likely balk at that idea. For its part, the NHL is expected to push for the realignment plan to go forward as is.

Anze Kopitar lead the way for the Kings with a goal and two assists in a 5-2 win over Edmonton on Tuesday.

Kopitar was seemingly all over the ice in this game and his two assists were true artistry in hockey fashion. He added five shots and was a plus-three on the evening. He has 48 points in 60 games this season. Trevor Lewis also added a goal and two assists while Drew Doughty had two assists in the blow out win. Jeff Carter scored his team leading 21st goal shorthanded.

Jonathan Quick stopped 21-of-23 shots for the Kings in a 5-2 win over Edmonton on Tuesday.

Quick wasn't overly busy in this one and didn't have to be as the Kings scored five goals in support to help him win his 26th win. The win snapped his personal two game losing streak. He has been a little up and down this year but he still has 26 wins and a solid 2.34 goal-against-average in 54 appearances this year. Start with confidence as he usually gets better as the season grows older.

Roberto Luongo was forced out of Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Maple Leafs due to injury, but later re-entered in the third period after backup Al Montoya also sustained an ailment.

Luongo stopped all 19 shots he faced in his two appearances and he was wearing street clothes just before he returned with his teammates trailing 3-2 in the third period. Considering he was able to come back into the contest, it doesn't appear his injury is all that serious.

Vancouver's backup Jacob Markstrom didn't last eight minutes in his first NHL start of the season against the Sharks as he allowed three goals on four shots.

None of the goals were terrible but Markstrom looked shell shocked and had to get the pull in favor Eddie Lack at the 7:45 mark of the first period. It will probably be a while before Markstrom gets a start again. Markstrom has been lights out in the AHL but this turned out to not be his night in first NHL start in a while.
Mar 3 - 10:32 PM

Alex Ovechkin had another strong night at the office Tuesday as he recorded two goals in a 5-3 win over the Blue Jackets.

Ovechkin's tallies give him 43 on the campaign and extend his lead in the race for the Rocket Richard Trophy. As if that weren't enough production for the fantasy MVP, Ovie also contributed eight shots on goal, a plus-1 rating and a hit. Tom Wilson also added a goal and 17 PIM in the victory while Eric Fehr and Marcus Johansson scored as well.
Mar 3 - 10:27 PM

Karri Ramo turned aside 35 of 37 shots Tuesday night as the Flames outlasted Philadelphia in overtime by a score of 3-2.

Ramo has played exceptionally well of late and has been rewarded with playing time as teammate Jonas Hiller has watched from the bench. Ramo has given up just five goals over his past four starts, a stretch during which he has faced a whopping 131 shots. Now that Mark Giordano has been ruled out for the remainder of the season, it will take heroic performances like this for the Flames to win games.

Henrik Zetterberg (concussion) is questionable for Wednesday's game.

Zetterberg was able to take part in Monday and Tuesday's practices. Even still, Zetterberg's availability won't be determined until after Detroit's skate Wednesday morning. He skated alongside newcomers Erik Cole and Justin Abdelkader.
Mar 3 - 4:46 PM

The Detroit Red Wings have put newcomer Erik Cole on a line with Henrik Zetterberg and Justin Abdelkader.

Detroit acquired Cole from Dallas on Sunday. He did get some playing time with Jason Spezza during his time with the Stars, but he also occasionally slipped to the third line. This situation is worth keeping an eye on because if Cole consistently plays with Zetterberg for the remainder of the season then he should finish on a high note. That all being said, Zetterberg has been suffering from a concussion, so we might have to wait a game or two before they end up playing together. As it is, Zetterberg is questionable for Wednesday's game. Cole's presence also hurts Gustav Nyquist, who has moved to the third line.
Mar 3 - 4:39 PM

Jacob Markstrom is projected to start on Tuesday.

Markstrom hasn't started for Vancouver yet in 2014-15. However, he's been superb in the minors with a 17-7-2 record, 1.95 GAA, and .932 save percentage.
Mar 3 - 2:23 PM

Karri Ramo will be the Flames' starting goaltender on Tuesday.

Ramo only allowed one goal in each of his last three starts. He has a 2.43 GAA and .915 save percentage in 23 contests in 2014-15.
Mar 3 - 12:44 PM

Anders Lindback will play between the pipes on Tuesday.

It will be Lindback's first start with Buffalo since he was acquired on Feb. 11. With Michal Neuvirth dealt on Monday, Lindback has a real shot of becoming Buffalo's starter for the rest of the season.
