5 Things to Watch Tonight

1. Can Danny DeKeyser and Brendan Smith continue strong pre-seasons into the regular season?

2. Will Jimmy Howard return to form and be the goalie he was in the 2011-12 season?

3. Can the youngsters avoid a sophomore slump? A lot is expected of Tomas Tatar, Riley Sheahan, Tomas Jurco, and Gustav Nyquist this season.

4. After being a healthy scratch for most of the playoffs last year, can Joakim Andersson establish himself as an everyday player?

5. For the love of God, can we please stay healthy?
