Game Predictions 12/21/2006

There are 10 games on the schedule and while none are prime, must see games, many are fairly intriguing. Atlanta-Pittsburgh will feature a lot of top end talent in Hossa, Kovalchuk, Crosby, Malkin and others. Ottawa-Tampa will also feature a lot of skill but two teams who just can’t quite put it all together. Buffalo-Nashville could prove to be a very interesting inter-conference matchup between hiqh quality teams. And finally, San Jose-Dallas meet in what is probably a race for second in the Pacific division behind Anaheim.

Game Predictions – 12/20/2006

Wow. What a crazy night in the NHL last night with 10 of the 11 road teams winning. That really wsn’t good for the winning percentage of my algorithm. Lets hope for better tonight. But honestly, I could see any of these games going either way.

Power Rankings – 12/19/2006

There is a lot of parity in the NHL this season, especially in the east where 8 teams have between 32 and 38 points and 13 teams between 28 and 43 points. It has become almost as close in the west. Because of this a short win streak or losing streak can still cause you to jump or drop several spots in the power rankings. This weeks biggerst movers up the rankings are Vancouver (15 to 9) and Toronto (20 to 13). Going the other way are Carolina (8 to 12), Atlanta (10 to 15), Minnesota (13 to 19) and

Game Predictions – 12/19/2006

We have a full schedule tonight with some good game to keep an eye on. The top 2 teams in the north east meet each other as Montreal visits Buffalo. Buffalo hasn’t been quite as dominant the past couple weeks so this game could go either way. Another big northeast division game has Zdeno Chara returning to Ottawa for the first time as the Bruins take on the Senators. It’s hard to predict this game as the Senators either play really really good or really really bad (i.e. lose 6-0 to Nashville then beat Buffalo 3-1). Other good games to

Game Predictions – 12/18/2006

Just 2 games tonight, one good, one not so good. The good game has Calgary visiting Anaheim. Anaheim is listed as a ‘good’ favourite but I actually think this game could go either way. Calgary has a good chance to win this game. The other game has Detroit playing the lowly Blue Jackets. I say lowly but they have played a fair bit better lately going 5-2-1 in December. Still, this should be Detroits game to win or lose.

Game Predictions – 12/17/2006

Three games on the schedule, but only one that would interest me at all: New Jersey at New York Rangers. It seems that those two teams are likely to be battling it out for the division lead come seasons end.

Adjusted hit totals

The NHL keeps track of a large variety of statistics, many of which are subjective in nature. The most subjective might be the hits statistic. What really is a hit? There is the pound the opposing player through the glass hit and then there are the almost incidental bumps which depending on severity may be classified a hit by some and not a hit by others. And looking at the stats, there is no real standard because some stats keepers in some cities seem to give players credit for a ton of hits while other cities are far more stingy

Game Predictions – 12/14/2006

Here are the predictions for tonights games. The game to watch tonight I think is Ottawa at Nashville. This could be a very fun game to watch as both teams have a fair bit of skill. I like Nashville to win. The Boston-New Jersey game could be quite good too. Phoenix has played a bit better the last couple weeks but I am surprised that they are the predicted winner against Columbus. I think Columbus will likely win that game.
