In this edition of 5-hole.com Pick ’em, we feature our first ever dueling gimmies. That’s right… I picked the Devils and made them my gimmie, while Eric picked the Blue Jackets as his gimmie. (Note to MSG Plus: we expect a commission for bumping up the ratings for tonight’s game).
In other news, this woman decided to emulate Chris Simon (or would it be Marty McSorley?) Either way, not the best role model. Maybe she was outraged at the lovely C-cups on the Virgin Mary. (Ed note: niiice. I like.)
On to the picks…
#10 New Jersey Devils @ #18 Columbus Blue Jackets
Eric – BJ’s – Kevin Weekes is starting. Kevins Weekes sucks. *gimmie*
Marc – Devils – New Jersey is a great road team. *gimmie*
Rory – BJ’s – I hate the Devils.
#12 Anaheim Ducks @ #19 Pittsburgh Penguins
Eric – Pens – The last time Crosby went down (that’s what she said) with an injury, the Penguins went on a tear.
Marc – Ducks – The Ducks may have lost to the Wings the other day but they looked really good in the process.
Rory – Ducks – Penguins are still slumping pretty hard – plus now Cindy’s out. Whatever will they do??
#25 Toronto Maple Leafs @ #29 Atlanta Thrashers
Eric – Leafs – So when do the Thrashers deal Ilya Kovalchuk?
Marc – Thrashers – Have you ever seen the inside of Phillips Arena? It’s crazy. One whole wall of the arena is luxury boxes.
Rory – Leafs – I flipped a coin on this one.
#9 Philadelphia Flyers @ #17 Florida Panthers
Eric – Panthers – Niittymaki sure does suck at hockey. See what I did there?
Marc – Flyers – The Panthers were on a streak, but they had 5 days off. Streak ends tonight.
Rory – Flyers – You had to think about this one? *gimmie*
#7 New York Rangers @ #8 Chicago Blackhawks
Eric – Hawks – I sure hope I’m wrong on this one.
Marc – Rangers – Wishful thinking.
Rory – Rangers – I hate to see them lose on Dad’s weekend.
#20 Edmonton Oilers @ #21 Colorado Avalanche
Eric – Avs – I like the snow.
Marc – Oilers – The Avs just lost to the Blues. They are not good.
Rory – Avs – Why not?
