Game Predictions – 3/7/2006
Last night was a pretty good night for game predictions going 4 for 5 and only missing out on the Washington win. We have 11 games on the schedule tonight and I am aiming for at least 7 correct. There are some pretty important games to.
Toronto/Montreal – Despite what Pat Quinn says the Leafs are in dire straits to make the playoffs now but a loss tonight would all but eliminate them as they would fall a full 10 points out of the playoffs. Whiel that doesn’t mathemeatically eliminate you the chances of making that up and climbing over a couple other teams as well is pretty slim.
Minnesota/Los Angeles – Minnesota finds themselves in a position not all that different from Toronto as they trail 7th place Los Angeles by 8 points and 8th place Edmonton by 7 points. A win tonight would go a long way to keeping them in the playoff race. A loss and things don’t look so good.
Anaheim/San Jose – Both of these teams sit just out of the playoffs. Anaheim is 4 points behind Edmonton while San Jose is 8 back. Both teams are going to fight hard for the 2 points.
Dallas/Edmonton – The 4 teams playing in the above 2 games are all going to be cheering hard for a Dallas win. Edmonton wants the win to keep some space between them and the 3 teams chasing them and in Minnesota won then leap frogging over Los Angeles into 7th wouldn’t be a bad thing either.
