NHL Game Predictions 11/2/2005

Five games on the schedule tonight but 3 of them are identified as too close to call. We can’t have that so I’ll make my own predictions on those games. In San Jose-Nashville, I’ll go with the team who has won 3 games in a row (San Jose) over the team who has lost 3 in a row (Nashville). Los Angeles is probably the slightly better team so I’ll go with them over Dallas. That leaves St. Louis vs Chicago, the battle for last in the Central division and the NHL overall. Chicago has lost 4 in a row and 6 of 7. St. Louis has lost 5 in a row and 6 of 7. Despite my better judgement to go with the home team who was resting last night, I think Chicago is the better team so I’ll pick them to win.
