Game Predictions 11/5/2005

Here are tonights game predictions. For the most part I think the game predictions are pretty good and I don’t see too many upsets happening. If there were to be an upset it could be Pittsburgh over Boston or Buffalo over Montreal. In the 2 pick-em games I’ll take Calgary at home and the rested Minnesota. Home Team Road Team Predicted Winner Confidence NY Rangers New Jersey NY Rangers Good Los Angeles Nashville Los Angeles Some Boston Pittsburgh Boston Good Toronto Tampa Bay Toronto Good Montreal Buffalo Montreal Good Ottawa NY Islanders Ottawa Strong Philadelphia Atlanta Philadelphia Strong Carolina Florida

To hit or not to hit….

A few days ago I was watching the Tampa-Atlanta game and noticed how little hitting there was in that game. That got me to thinking if this was normal for Tampa (and it was). Well over the past few days I went through every box score on NHL.com and extracted the hits each team had in every game and I came up with the following results. -Detroit had the fewest hits in a single game with just 2 hits in a game against Columbus. Pittsburgh and Atlanta were next with just 3 hits in a game. -The fewest hits in

Game Predictions – 11/3/2005

There are a few interesting games tonight. One to watch will be Edmonton at Detroit. Detroit is listed as the strong favourite but don’t count out Edmonton. They have been playing great hockey recently and while Detroit has a great record much of its wins have come against weak teams. It’s last 5 wins have come against Columbus (2) and Chicago (3). They haven’t played quality competition in quite a while an dmight be unprepared for it. Plus Legace and Schneider might not play. Tampa at Ottawa should also prove interesting. Will Ottawa faulter after a big win like they

Power Rankings – November 2, 2005

Since last week Nashville suffered its first loss, as well as it’s second and third losses dropping it to 7th overall. Also since last week Pittsburgh got its first win, as well as its second win. Unfortunately for Pittsburgh it wasn’t enough to get it out of last spot in the Power Rankings. I have also modified the forumla a tad so that the top team will always have a Power Rank score of 15.0. Nothing changes in terms of the order of teams, just their power rank scores. Also, a rank of 10 is still the average. Rank Team

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

Lightning but no Thunder

I was watching the Tampa-Atlanta game tonight and after the first period the showed a first period summary including goals, shots, PIMS, etc. They also showed hits. After 1 period Atlanta had 4 hits and Tampa had just 1. Yeah, that’s just 1 hit for Tampa in a whole 20 minute period. I thought that was a pretty low hit total and it got me thinking if this is normal for Tampa. It seems that Tampa doesn’t like to hit anyone. November 1st vs Atlanta: 6 hits October 29 vs Atlanta: 6 hits October 28 vs Washington: 8 hits October

Game Predictions 11/1/2005

Here are tonights NHL game predictions. New Jersey being a strong pick over Pittsburgh is interesting. With Brodeur likely still out this is a game that Pittsburgh could get a win from. Edmonton at Columbus is also an interesting game as both teams have started showing signs of blaying better. Edmonton has won 2 in a row and Columbus has won 2 of 3 and both teams recently beat previously undefeated Nashville. Speaking of Nashville, one has to wonder if their 2 game losing streak is a sign of things to come or whether they can get back on track
