The New York Rangers rarely go to Montreal on Sundays. Their visit to the Bell Centre marks the Blueshirts' 304th regular-season game in Montreal against the Canadiens, but just the fifth to be played on a Sunday.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'

— Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock on his interest in advanced statistical analysis
