Free NHL Picks: Canucks at Senators Odds
by George Monroy - 11/27/2013
The Vancouver Canucks and Ottawa Senators have a lot to be thankful for heading into Thursday night’s Thanksgiving Day matchup—mainly that neither team is in last place after a horrendous two weeks of hockey. Both squads have a combined three wins over their last 14 games, and each continues to creep down to the bottom of their respective divisions. The Canucks recently wasted a golden opportunity to move up in the standings during a six-game homestand by losing five of those matchups.

Free NHL Picks: Coyotes at Predators Odds
by George Monroy - 11/25/2013
The Nashville Predators just took a huge blow to their streaking offense when the team’s leading scorer, Patric Hornqvist, was knocked out of Saturday’s game against the New York Rangers with an undisclosed lower-body injury. The 26-year-old right winger is still questionable for Monday’s matchup, and the team may need to find offensive production from other places if they wish to earn a fourth victory over their last five games.

Free NHL Picks: Avalanche at Coyotes Odds
by George Monroy - 11/20/2013
The Colorado Avalanche finally hit their first rough patch of the season when they lost three straight games last week. The team had a particularly embarrassing loss to the St. Louis Blues where they allowed seven goals during regulation on only 24 shot attempts. Colorado even fell from first place in the Central Division into a tie for third. Don’t feel too bad for the team, though, because they are still sitting on 30 points—which is more than any team in the Eastern Conference—and are still on of the more talented squads in NHL.
