#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.
