#2 Boston Bruins @ #30 New York Islanders
Eric – Bruins – If the Bruins don’t win I will eat my hat. *gimmie*
Marc – Bruins – The Isles were already hopeless with MacDonald… now Danis is in net. *gimmie*
Rory – Bruins – Ha! *gimmie*
#25 Toronto Maple Leafs @ #15 Carolina Hurricanes
Eric – Canes – Fantasy team pick (Cam Ward)
Marc – Canes – blah
Rory – Canes – The Leafs have lost 8 of their last ten. Plus they suck.
#22 Nashville Predators @ #6 Montreal Canadiens
Eric – Preds – hahaha Pekka.
Marc – Habs – The Preds are looking good recently but it’s tough to go into the Bell Centre and win.
Rory – Habs – No dollar bills are going to be mailed out tonight.
#9 Philadelphia Flyers @ #27 Tampa Bay Lightning
Eric – Flyers – There is no possible way that the Lightning beat the Flyers tonight. None.
Marc – Flyers – The Lightning are back from a long west coast road trip where they actually won 2 out of 3. But they lost 7-1 to the Sharks and jet lag is a bitch.
Rory – Flyers – Come on, now.
Eric – Wild – I flipped a coin. It landed on it’s rim. Bad teams are bad.
Marc – Wild – Backstrom is the man.
Rory – Wild – I flipped a coin – these two are practically the same at the moment, stnadings-wise and record-wise, anyway.
#21 Colorado Avalanche @ #28 St. Louis Blues
Eric – Avs – They’re on a roll… of sorts.
Marc – Avs – These teams are both pretty bad, but at least Col has looked decent lately. Stl has lost their last 2 and 7 of the last 10.
Rory – Avs – St. Louis is suckin’ it big time this season.
#13 Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo. @ #23 Dallas Stars
Eric – Stars – They’re playing pretty well lately. But then again so are the Sabres.
Marc – Stars – Yes, I’m actually picking Turco.
Rory – Stars – Why not? I like to mix it up.
#14 Phoenix Coyotes @ #11 Vancouver Canucks
Eric – Canucks – Luongo hath returneth.
Marc – Canucks – Luongo is back in action. Sanford got waived… ouch.
Rory – Canucks – Not-so-sucky team playing pretty-damn-sucky team. (Ed. Note: Look at the standings…)
#3 Detroit Red Wings @ #24 Los Angeles Kings
Eric – Wings – Just beat up the Ducks last night. Didn’t have to travel very far today.
Marc – Wings – When the Wings turn it on, they are the best team in the NHL. Anyone who has watched a team try to hold on to a 3rd period lead against the Wings knows what I’m talking about.
Rory – Wings – LA shouldn’t even bother to show up to this game. Save everyone some time and effort.
#5 Calgary Flames @ #1 San Jose Sharks
Eric – Sharks – The Flames probably have the best chance to had the Sharks their first home regulation loss. But I don’t think that will happen.
Marc – Flames – This would be a big time upset, but I freakin love Kipper almost as much as the Mini-Kipper. Almost, but not quite. (see video below)
Rory – Sharks – San Jose haven’t lost at home in regulation and only twice in OT. Yup.

#4 Washington Capitals @ #18 Pittsburgh Penguins
Eric – Penguins – They’re in Pittsburgh and the Caps suck on the road.
Marc – Penguins – Like I said yesterday, the Caps are great at home, terrible on the road. Yesterday they played terribly at home… maybe that means they will play great on the road? No.
Rory – Penguins – Apparently the Caps suck on the road. I found that out last night.
#28 Ottawa Senators @ #29 Atlanta Thrashers
Eric – Sens – They should bill this one as, “The battle of who sucks more.”
Marc – Thrashers – Ottawa got their win for the week yesterday.
Rory – Sens – My ex is from Atlanta and he’s been pissing me off lately. To hell with Atlanta!
#13 Buffalo Sabres @ #9 Chicago Blackhawks
Eric – Hawks – something witty *gimmie*
Marc – Hawks – The Hawks are legit. At home they are really legit. *gimmie*
Rory – Hawks – I just like the Blackhawks better.
#3 Detroit Red Wings @ #11 Anaheim Ducks
Eric – Ducks – Just a hunch.
Marc – Wings – It’s nearly impossible to pick against the Wings in any game.
Rory – Wings – Wiiiiings! *gimmie*

Marc will be taking a short break from Pick ‘em as he is out of the country.
Straight to the picks today!
#13 Pittsburgh Penguins @ #15 Buffalo Sabres
#21 Toronto Maple Leafs @ #28 Atlanta Thrashers
Eric – Leafs – The only thrash the Thrashers have is Ilya Kovalchuk.
Rory – Leafs – Toronto’s not doin so bad lately. Atlanta on the other hand has lost like 153 games in a row. *gimmie*
#16 Phoenix Coyotes @ #24 Edmonton Oilers
Eric – Coyotes – The Oilers are 4-5-3 at Rexall Place this season. The Coyotes are terrible on the road. The coin just landed heads.
Rory – Coyotes – Why not?
#12 Anaheim Ducks @ #11 Vancouver Canucks
Eric – Ducks – The Ducks just lost their goal scoring leader for 4 weeks due to self inflicted injury but they have Jonas Hiller in net! Go Team Fuckin’ Awesome! *gimmie*
Rory – Ducks – I officially want Vancouver to go down the tubes so $undin can know the wrath that befalls those who reject Henrik Lundqvist. He took you out to dinner, and you don’t even bother to call! I imagine the HL Wrath of Rejection is quite frightening, considering how he acts when he loses a game.
Posted in 5-hole.com Pick 'em, New York Rangers, NHL, tagged 2009 winter classic, alex auld, anaheim ducks, atlanta thrashers, boris valabik, buffalo sabres, Calgary Flames, chicago blackhawks, chris pronger, dwane roloson, edmonton oilers, Hawks, honda, jason labarbera, jonas hiller, kris letang, los angeles kings, miikka kiprusoff, minnesota wild, new jersey devils, new york islanders, nigel dawes, niklas backstrom, Ottawa Senators, pittsburgh penguins, sens, Sidney Crosby, sucker punch, wrigley field, zamboni on Friday, December 19, 2008 |
In yesterday’s game between the Thrashers and Penguins, a fight broke out after the Thrashers’ first goal. At one point, Sidney Crosby gives Boris Valabik 3 solid punches from behind while teammate Kris Letang held Valabik down. Crosby was clearly the third man in on this “fight” and he sucker punched Valabik not once, not twice, but three times yet he was only accessed a roughing minor.
The Honda zamboni was so excited to get inside Wrigley field that it jumped off of the truck that was transporting it. Luckily, no one (including the zamboni) was injured.
Quick! Go look at our picks before Sidney Crosby punches you in the back of the head! (more…)

The first day of 5-hole.com Pick ‘em seems to have been a rousing success! The standings to the right will be updated daily and we will now offer a handful of what we feel are the most interesting stories from around the league. Additionally, we will now give you all a reason for why we picked the teams we’ve picked. You know, in case we are your main source before heading to the bookie.
- Sean Avery has been suspended indefinitely after sharing his thoughts with the Canadian media. “I just want to comment on how it’s become like a common thing in the NHL for guys to fall in love with my sloppy seconds. I don’t know what that’s about. Enjoy the game tonight.” Come on, that’s funny!
- Speaking of Avery, M Hurley over at My Blueshirt Heaven calls out the NHL or National Hypocrites League for their reaction to the situation. “This is the same league that has let a criminal like Todd Bertuzzi play again after he criminally assaulted and ended the career of Steve Moore.”
- The All Star voting is still a joke, but at least Jarome Iginla has broken the Red Wings hold on the West. In the East, Sidney Crosby is now only 40,000 votes behind Alex Tanguay for a spot on the starting lineup.
We’ll get into our picks for tonight after the jump… (more…)
