Game Predictions – 23/10/2006

A couple of interesting games today. First, Montreal will try to show that their big win over Colorado on Saturday is no fluke when they take on the top team in the NHL, also known as the Buffalo Sabres. Another interesting game is the Dallas-Vancouver game. This is another big test for the Canucks who have gotten off to a fairly good start but have not made it easy on themselves as they have relied a fair bit on late game comebacks and overtime/shootout wins. For example, on Saturday they tied Nashville with less than 2 minutes left in the game and won it in overtime. The game before against St. Louis they tied it up with less than 30 seconds to play and won it with a goal with 1 second left in overtime. Maybe that is a sign of a good team or maybe it is a sign that they are a lucky team playing with fire just waiting to get burnt. Tonights game against Dallas will be a good test to see which it might be.
