Game Predictions – 12/6/2006

Here are tonights game predictions as decided upon by my prediction algorithm. Thre should be some really good games tonight as even the Dallas-Phoenix might be better than one might expect as Phoenix has won 3 in a row and 4 of 5. All of the other games have the potential to be very close games with lots of goals (except maybe NJ-Montreal).

  1. Strong feeling that Washington beats Ottawa? That’s interesting. Is it because Ottawa played last night? I guess they’re both playing better, I just would have thought it was more evenly matched.

  2. I was a bit surprised seeing that too but the significant reason for it is that Ottawa played last night and are on the road while Washington is at home and rested. Washington is marginally ahead in the Power Rankings too so it all adds up to Washington being a strong favourite according to the algorithm. I’d say reality is something less than that though Alfredsson will miss the game too.

  3. Good game. Algorithm turned out to be correct. It was a lot closer than the score would seem to indicate. Washington looks like a new team.
