Game Predictions – 11/13/2006

The game to watch tonight is a rematch of last years eastern conference finals and prabably a matchup of the top two teams in the east again this year. Buffalo has been great all season and after a poor first 4 or so games Carolina has been great too. Should be a great game. In other games Ottawa tries to break their slump against Montreal while two slumping teams from Pennsylvania face each other as well. Both Philadelphia and Pittsburgh have lost 5 in a row. Florida faces Washington in a battle of mediocre southeast division teams and out west Colorado faces Edmonton in a battle of mediocre northwest division teams. Both of these games potentially have playoff implications come April though I think Washington and Colorado will likely fall out of the playoff race before then. The final game of the night should see San Jose get an easy win over the Los Angeles Kings.
