Game Predictions – 11/10/2006

We have 7 games on the schedult tonight with several worth keeping an eye on. The Ottawa Senators look to break their 5 game losing streak against a significantly improved Pittsburgh team. This is going to be a big challenge for the Senators as the Penguins have the offensive punch to kill weak goaltending or poordefensive plays, both of which have troubled the Senators the past few games. Another game…

Nik Antropov…

Being possibly the biggest Nik Antropov supporter I was happy to seehim have a big game vs. Boston tonight. In Toronto’s 6-4 win, Antropov had 2 goals and an assist and was a +4. He has generally been pretty good since returning from injury although he was given very limited ice time until tonights game where he got almost 16 minutes. His linemate Ponikarovsky had a goal and 2 assists…

Game Predictions – 11/9/2006

Not a lot of real intriguing games tonight. I can’t really get too excited about New Jersey-Chicago, St. Louis-Columbus or Dallas-Phoenix. My gut tells me that the Flyers will break out with a win against the Islanders tonight. Carlolina-Washington would be a good game to watch as should Vancouver-Anaheim but neither I would call must see games unless you are a fan of one of the teams. Home Team FairHTOdds…

Game Predictions – 11/8/2006

The game to watch tonight will be the Ottawa at Atlanta game. This is the second game of a four game road trip that the Senators hoped would be the turning point in their so far dissapointing season. But Atlanta will be a huge challenge for Ottawa as the Thrashers are probably the second best team in the east right now (behind Buffalo). A loss where the Sens look lethargic…

Here are the game predictions for tonights games. Most games should have some solid entertainment value but the San Jose-Minnesota game will probably be the best.

NHL Game Predictions – 11/6/2006

Here are the predictions for tonights games. The two games out west might be the most entertaining games to watch but the eastern conference games have some intrigue as well. Ottawa looks to break out of their slump against Washington and Philadelphia looks to break out of their slump against Toronto. Both Ottawa and Philadelphia have been playing well below expectations and one has to wonder when they are going…
