Yesterday’s Pick ’em picks are after the jump. We were unable to post these last night because of technical difficulties.
While you’re here, I should let you know that I took in a Blackhawks game live on Monday night, but came away disappointed that they only scored 1 goal. People keep calling me and leaving messages about my seat. Weird.
There are some pretty dumb people in the world. This man “had already devoured the crab legs” when the police arrived. And here’s a tip: if you’re going to hide from the police, don’t do it underneath a truck parked at a convenience store. Chances are you don’t have very long before you need a new spot.
On to yesterday’s picks!
Each of my picks today is the result of a coin flip. I used a 1980 quarter minted in Philadelphia. Heads for home team, tails for visitor. Gimmie picked by random number generator.
The results were:
Heads – Devils
Tails – Ducks
Heads – Flyers
Tails – Bruins
Tails – Sabres *gimmie*
Heads – Panthers
Tails – Blues
Tails – Kings
Heads – Flames
The number between 1 and 9 that was randomly generated was 5. That means that the Sabres are my gimmie pick.
MON over NJ – I hate the Devils.
ANA over NYI – Joey Mac’s lady area had better start holdin’ up now that DP is on permanent ‘Murder She Wrote’ duty. But the Isles suck no matter what, so who cares?
PHI over ATL – Seriously now. *gimmie*
BOS over TOR – Leafs suck large.
BUF over TB – I’ve got nothing witty for this one. Tampa just blows.
FLA over DAL – They’re doing ok lately. Seriously I could care less about this game.
CHI over STL – As pissed off as I am about this year’s ASG, I do like their campaign ads.
COL over LA – Flipped a coin.
CAL over CBJ – They be on Fie-yah!! Damn that was lame.
Canadiens – Carey Price will be starting for the first time in 3 weeks. Lucky for the Habs, he saw some action yesterday against the Thrashers.
Ducks – The only question is whether they will still be called the Islanders when they’re in Kansas City.
Flyers – The Thrashers have lost 11 straight to the Flyers. Nittymaki is 11-0-0 against the Thrashers. *gimmie*
Leafs – The B’s have lost 2 in a row and are really banged up. Kessel is out with mono (apparently he is reliving freshman year), and Lucic, Bergeron, Ward, and Ference are all questionable.
Buffalo – The Sabres have been on a roll and they are a pretty good road team.
Florida – The Stars blew 3rd period leads in their last 2 games, which were against Buffalo and Tampa. That’s pretty bad.
Chicago – The Hawks and Blues first 3 games this year all went to OT. But you have to like the Hawks on Tony Amonte Night! [http://220.127.116.11/search?q=cache:YfNxGE6jj_4J:blackhawks.nhl.com/+chicago+blackhawks&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=2&gl=us&client=firefox-a]
Colorado – Peter Budaj has won four in a row over Los Angeles and is 6-1-1 with a 2.35 goals-against average versus the Kings.
Calgary – KIPPER!
