Game Predictions – 12/13/2006

Here are tonights game predictions. Anaheim-Altanta should be a very good game. Anaheim has the stars on defense but both teams have skill and speed and can put the puck in the net and both teams have good goaltending. Should be a good game. The other 2 games won’t be so good as all 4 teams are fairly mediocre teams.

Power Rankings – 12/12/2006

We are still seeing significant movement in the power rankings. Generally this week we have seen eastern conference teams drop and western conference teams rise. This is because of a generally bad eastern conference record vs. the west this past week. Carolina lost to Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and Colorado. Toronto lost to Detroit. Ottawa lost to Columbus. Anaheim beat Washington and Tampa. The big risers on the week are Edmonton (16 to 6), Calgary (17 to 7), Minnesota (22 to 13), New Jersey (19 to 15), and Vancouver (21 to 15). Those going the other direction include the Islanders (11

Game Predictions – 12/12/2006

We have a full schedule of games tonight and here are the algorithms predictions. If you are a betting man, definitely be cautious on the St. Louis-Chicago game as often when a team changes coaches they have a short term (3-5 games) surge in their play before falling back to where they were. I think the Blues probably win tonight. Los Angeles is being listed as the small favourite against San Jose which is quite odd. I am not sure I buy that one but the algorithm has proven me wrong before. Most of the other predictions make some sense.

Game Predictions 12/11/2006

Just 3 games on the schedule tonight none of which would be considered prime games but all of which could offer some intrigue. Washington has been one of the better teams in the league and the Caoitals-Penguins game features three of the best young talents in the game. Phoenix has been playing much better the past couple weeks as well and will face a bit challenge in San Jose. Meanwhile Carolina tries to salvage something out of their northwest division road trip in Colorado after losses to Calgary and Edmonton and an overtime loss to Vancouver. Home Team FairHTOdds Road

NHL Predictions – 12/9/2006

Not a lot of time for analysis this morning but here are the NHL game predictions for tonight. The game of the night is an original six classic and a renewal of a former Norris division rivalry: Detroit at Toronto. Home Team FairHTOdds Road Team FairRTOdds Predicted Winner Confidence Boston -192 New Jersey 147 Boston Strong Montreal -105 Buffalo 105 Buffalo Some Ottawa -132 NY Rangers 124 Ottawa Some NY Islanders -135 Florida 126 NY Islanders Some Philadelphia 131 Washington -145 Washington Good Atlanta -163 Pittsburgh 138 Atlanta Good Detroit -154 Toronto 135 Detroit Good Tampa Bay -131 Anaheim 124

Game Predictions – 12/8/2006

This may or may not surprise you but I think the game of the night tonight is Anaheim at Washington. This is a huge test for the overachieving Capitals. You might think there is no hope of defeating the 21-3-6 Ducks but the Capitals have won 4 in a row with their last 3 wins coming against Dallas, the easts best team Buffalo and the recently hot Ottawa Senators (8-2 in last 10). If the Caps can pull out a win tonight agianst the Ducks they will jump into a playoff spot. Should be an interesting game. Home Team FairHTOdds

Fixing the Schedule

So the NHL govenors met this week to discuss making changes to the NHL schedule but came up with no solution so for now we are stuck with what we have got. Some teams want more interconference play, some teams want none at all. My problem with the schedule is that the teams who are competing with each other to make the playoffs play significantly different schedules. The northeast division may have 5 of the top 8 teams in the eastern conference but because they play each other 8 times, it is unlikely that they will all make the playoffs

Game Predictions – 12/7/2006

There are several intriguing games on the schedule tonight. We start off with the ‘not another game’ game as Toronto takes on Boston for the 5th time since November 9th (and the NHL wonders why people get tired of seeing the same teams over and over again). Next up is the up and down Rangers taking on the struggling (one win in 7 games) Penguins as the Rangers look to get back up into a playoff spot (they currently sit in 9th). I have a hard time getting excited about the Islanders facing Canadiens but both teams seem to be

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).
