The Canes critical lead in the Metropolitan Division is down to just a single point with a game in hand over the surging new look New Jersey Devils.

On the other side of the ice, the Arizona Coyotes are coming off of another trade deadline of being sellers. The Yotes have lost three of their last four games and just sold off their top two defensemen among others.

One of those defensemen, Shayne Gostisbehere, joined the Carolina Hurricanes when the Canes arrived in Arizona. He will make his debut tonight against his former team on the third-pairing.
