Game Predictions – 3/28/2006
There are seven games on the schedule today most of which have some level of playoff significance. Of interest to me is the Ottawa/New Jersey game since I will be going to the game. It is also a fairly important game for both teams as New Jersey sits just 3 points ahead of 9th place Atlanta so their playoff spot is anything but a certainty. The game is also important for Ottawa as they try to maintain their lead over Carolina for top spot in the eastern conference. I should also note that this will be my third Senators game this year. At home the Senators have a 26-6-1 record and have average 4.2 goals per game at home. In the 2 games previous games that I have been to they have lost both and scored just 2 goals losing both by 2-1 scores (to Carolina and Atlanta). If they lose again tonight I guess I am just bad luck for the Senators (which is fine since I am a Leaf fan).
In the other games I agree with most of the algorithms predictions but I wouldn’t be surprised if Anaheim upsets Colorado. In fact I might even expect it as Anaheim has been playing some really good hockey recently having won 6 in a row and 9 of 10.
