Free NHL Picks: Oilers at Senators Odds
by George Monroy - 10/18/2013
The Edmonton Oilers are in the middle of a brutal portion of their schedule and will visit the Ottawa Senators on Saturday night to play their fifth straight road game in a seven-day span. The team is finishing out an eight road game stretch that will be interrupted by one home game next Thursday. Edmonton only has one win on the season and is probably building an insurmountable hole two weeks into the year.
Free NHL Picks: Blues at Jets Odds
by George Monroy - 10/17/2013
The St. Louis Blues opened up the season on a ridiculous pace that saw the team win its first four games by a 19-7 margin. The Blues then played a high-profile matchup against the also-undefeated San Jose Sharks that quickly go out of control as St. Louis’ forward Maxim Lapierre left Sharks’ defensemen Dan Boyle unconscious after a brutal hit from behind. Boyle left the game on a stretcher, and Lapierre was ejected and suspended indefinitely pending an in-person hearing.
Free NHL Picks: Blue Jackets at Canadiens Odds
by George Monroy - 10/16/2013
The Montreal Canadiens will open up a five-game homestand inside the Bell Centre when the team faces the struggling Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday night. The Canadeins are riding a three-game winning streak and have held their opponents to only two goals during that time. Montreal’s goaltender, Carey Price, has been fantastic in that span and earned his 20th-career shutout against the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night. Prices’ production at the net has masked the Canadiens’ lack of puck control as of late.
Free NHL Picks: Flames at Ducks Odds
by George Monroy - 10/15/2013
The Calgary Flames will take a trip to the Honda Center on Wednesday night to face a surging Anaheim Ducks team has won four games in a row after losing its first game of the season. The Ducks have outscored their opponents 17-6 during that stretch and are playing some of the best hockey in the league. The Flames have also played well to begin the year and have scored eight points on three wins and two overtime losses.
Free NHL Picks: Oilers at Penguins Odds
by George Monroy - 10/14/2013
The Edmonton Oilers started off the season with four losses in their first five games, and to make matters even worse the team now heads to Pittsburgh to face the division-leading Penguins on the second night of a road back-to-back. The Oilers were a team that many experts believed would make the playoffs and, at minimum, be a solid regular-season team. However, the beginning of the season has not gone Edmonton’s way, and unfortunately things are about to get tougher for the team.
Free NHL Picks: Wild at Sabres Odds
by George Monroy - 10/14/2013
The Minnesota Wild will begin a four-game road trip Monday night when the team travels to Buffalo for a matchup against the Sabres. The game will take place in the First Niagara Center in Buffalo, New York, as the Sabres try to win their first game of the season. Buffalo has six straight losses to start the year and has been outscored 16-6 over those games. The team only has one point so far this season, which came from an overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning nearly a week ago.
Free NHL Picks: Stars at Wild Odds
by George Monroy - 10/11/2013
The Dallas Stars began the season with two games over a three-day stretch, and then were given five days off. Nearly every other team in the league already had four games under its belt before Dallas played the Winnipeg Jets on Friday night. That lack of playing time might have a huge impact during Saturday night’s game against the Minnesota Wild. The matchup will be the first of a scheduled four meetings between the teams, with the next game not coming until early next year.
Free NHL Picks: Avalanche at Bruins Odds and Predictions
by George Monroy - 10/10/2013
The Colorado Avalanche have had as good of a start to the season as a team could hope for. The Avalanche are undefeated and have only allowed three goals in three games worth of action. Newly-minted head coach Patrick Roy’s squad was not expected to do much this year and was not really on anyone’s radar before the season began. But after three games, six points scored, and an excellent display on the defensive end, the team just might be a playoff contender after all.
Free NHL Picks: Devils at Canucks Odds and Predictions
by George Monroy - 10/8/2013
The New Jersey Devils are currently in the middle of a brutal schedule to open the season. The team will travel for six road games during its first seven games of the year and will tonight visit a Vancouver Canucks team that has put up 11 points during its last two games. The Devils lost their home opener to the New York Islanders on Friday in a 4-3 shootout loss, while the Canucks handily won their home opener 6-2 over the Edmonton Oilers.
Free NHL Picks: Flyers at Canadiens Odds and Predictions
by Alan Matthews - 10/5/2013
The Philadelphia Flyers were easily one of the NHL's biggest disappointments last season. They finished just above .500, but their 49 points weren't enough to reach the playoffs, which is unacceptable for one of the NHL's biggest spenders. It was the first time the Flyers didn't play extra hockey since the 2006-07 campaign and just the second time since 1994.
Free NHL Picks: Sabres at Red Wings Odds and Predictions
by Alan Matthews - 10/1/2013
Welcome to my first NHL preview for the new season, on which the puck dropped less than three months after the Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup. It's a new-look NHL with the Detroit Red Wings and Columbus Blue Jackets now in the Eastern Conference and the Winnipeg Jets out West.
Free NHL Picks: Pittsburgh Penguins Futures Odds
by George Monroy - 9/25/2013
Last season the Pittsburgh Penguins were eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs in the most disappointing way possible—a four-game sweep in the Eastern Conference Finals. The team battled injuries to key players for most of the lockout-shortened season and still managed to make a deep postseason run without it best player, Sidney Crosby, being fully healthy. The Penguins are expected to be one of the top contenders in the league and are projected by many pundits to make the Stanley Cup Finals.
NHL Picks: Los Angeles Kings Futures Odds
by George Monroy - 9/19/2013
The Los Angeles Kings followed up their championship season with another impressive run that ended with a loss to the Chicago Blackhawks in the Western Conference finals. The Kings finished the lockout-shortened season with a 27-16-5 record and 59 points, which was good for a second-place finish in the Pacific Division and fifth overall in the West. The team did not defend its Stanley Cup Championship but was able to put another very good season in the books.
NHL Picks: Eastern Conference Championship Odds
by George Monroy - 9/12/2013
The NHL’s Eastern Conference will be a bit more difficult to navigate once the upcoming 2013-14 season begins. The East sent the Winnipeg Jets packing in the Conference realignment but in return received the Columbus Blue Jackets and the perennial-contender Detroit Red Wings. The Conference will have an extra team and another group gunning for a Stanley Cup Finals appearance.
Red Wings at Blackhawks Picks and Game 7 NHL Odds
by Alan Matthews - 5/29/2013
Is the National Hockey League regular season way too long? It most definitely is, although not this year because of the lockout. But the teams battle it out 82 games a year in order to get home-ice advantage in the postseason. And winning the Presidents' Trophy will certainly pay off for the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night as they will host Game 7 of their Western Conference semifinals series against the Detroit Red Wings. Whatever the result, it will be the final playoff game between these Original Six rivals likely for a very long time with the Wings off to the Eastern Conference.
Sharks at Kings Picks and NHL Game 7 Odds
by Trevor Whenham - 5/28/2013
It all comes down to this. One game for all the marbles. What has been a surprisingly brilliant series comes down to 60 minutes to decide which team reigns supreme in California this year and which will head to the Western Conference Championship.
Blackhawks at Red Wings Picks and Game 6 NHL Odds
by Dave Schwab - 5/27/2013
The Western Conference Semifinals matchup between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Detroit Red Wings will stage Game 6 of this best-of-seven series this Monday night at Joe Louis Arena with the Red Wings holding the 3-2 edge. The game is set to get underway at 8 p.m. (ET), and it will be broadcast nationally on the NBC Sports Network.
Rangers at Bruins Picks and Game 5 NHL Odds
by Alan Matthews - 5/25/2013
I really don't like the New York sports teams. But in a way, wouldn't it be fitting for the New York Rangers to be able to rally from what was a 3-0 deficit in their Eastern Conference semifinals series against the Boston Bruins? Of course, the 2004 Boston Red Sox made baseball history by becoming the first MLB team to rally from a 3-0 deficit, stunning the New York Yankees on the way to the World Series title.
Senators at Penguins Picks and Game 5 NHL Odds
by Dave Schwab - 5/24/2013
The Ottawa Senators head back to the Consol Energy Center this Friday night looking to stay alive in their Eastern Conference Semifinals matchup against the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 5 of this best-of-seven showdown. The puck is set to drop at 7:30 p.m. (ET), and the game will be broadcast nationally on the NBC Sports Network.
Blackhawks at Red Wings Picks and Game 4 NHL Odds
by Trevor Whenham - 5/23/2013
The Blackhawks certainly do not head into this game where they thought they would be. They were the best team in the NHL all season and the heavy favorites to win the Western Conference. They are up against a Red Wings team in definite transition — learning to play without Niklas Lidstrom after two decades of stellar leadership and defensive excellence.
