Tuesday’s Games and Picks in the NHL

January 5th, 2009


MIN @ BOS : Take BOS,  Bruins lost at home for the first time in a long while and they will bounce back like all good teams do.

OTT @ BUF: Take BUF, Sabres could be in tough against the desperate Senators who played very well but still lost in New Jersey.

PHI @ WSH: Take WSH, This will be a close hard fought tough game that could really go either way. Edge to Caps because they are at home.

NJD @ CAR: Take CAR, Devils always play well on the road, but the Canes have been solid as of late, this will be close but take the Canes.

FLA @ TOR: Take TOR, Leafs at home against their old power play D Bryan McCabe returns to play against a team he played for 8 years. Vesa back on track after rest.

ATL @ PIT: Take PIT, Pens will use the Thrashers to get them back on track after weeks of struggle and poor play.

CLB @ DET: Take DET, Wings at home with a hard working Blue Jackets team that will give them everything thing they can handle and more.

COL @ NSH: Take COL, Av’s are a good team some nights and for some reason they play well in Nashville.

CHI @ PHX: Take CHI, Hawks after two tough losses to the Wings, Are back on track and look to get some winning streaks together again.

LAK @ ANA: Take ANA, Ducks vs Kings in the all California battle is always pretty tough games and lots of energy. Ducks and Kings will be very close game.

SJS @ CGY: Take SJS, Sharks and Calgary should be the best game of the night and I was very close to taking Flames and still don’t like this game if you are betting on it. If you can stay away from this game but edge to Sharks because of record.
