Game Predictions – 12/5/2005

Another 3 games on the schedule tonight. Well, actually, depending on the schedule you are looking at there might only be two. That’s because the third game is a make up game between Ottawa and Florida which was cancelled due to the hurricane. This game could also be a potential upset game as well because Ottawa will be playing without Chara, Redden and Havlat. They still have the big 3 up front (Spezza, Heatley and Alfredsson) but if Luongo can provide some timely goaltending and the Panther forwards can capitalize on a now significantly weakened defense they may be able to pull out a surprise win. Florida is also on a 2 game winning streak although those wins are just against Chicago and Washington.
