#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*

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…)

Lightning Canadiens HockeyYes, we made picks yesterday and no, we didn’t post them.  We’re sorry.  But just to show our dedication to this, I am revealing to everyone that Marc and I both picked the Habs as our gimmies last night. The Habs lost. To the Lightning.  That’s right, the Lightning.

Last night, I went 5-3 and dropped my first gimmie of the season by picking the Habs over the Bolts.  Marc also went 4-4 and also dropped his gimmie by picking the Habs.  Rory went 3-5 last night but did not pick the Habs as her gimmie.  She went with the Sharks who won.

Oh well.  Let’s get to some news:

Petr Prucha’s days in a Rangers uniform may be numbered.  Andrew Gross over at Ranger Rants has this:

Renney was asked whether Prucha’s latest three-game stint was enough of a sample for him.

“Yup,” Renney said. “If it wasn’t, he would still be in. He gave me everything he could. It depends also on what you need. Nigel is in primarily because of his ability to score and help create offense. Also, he’s a playmaker. He helps, I think, supplement what we might need offensive by his ability to make plays. It’s where we are and what we need to generate. It’s capitalizing on guys that have been out of the lineup that want badly to get back in and do the right thing as they do that.”

So there you have it.  Nigel Dawes: playmaker.  Did anyone actually notice Dawes in that game on Wednesday night?  I mean besides the time in the third when he blew his golden opportunity.

The Islanders got absolutely destroyed last night by the Pittsburgh Penguins.  Enjoy:

Picks coming as soon as I clear all these hats out of the way… (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.

  • BASEBALLSean 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…)
