It's Optimus Reim vs. Finding Neemo tonight at the ACC. Both goaltenders have struggled mightily as of late and will be looking to get back into form.
Furthermore, with both teams in the midst of a tightly contested playoff race, these points are very important despite the fact that it comes out of Conference.
Some links to tide you over before yet another early start time:
