NHL Predictions and Free Picks February 12th:
Montreal Canadiens @ Philadelphia Flyers – Montreal comes into tonight’s game after halting the Washington Capitals 14 game win streak on Wednesday night, dumping the Capitals 6-5 in Overtime. The Flyers have been good lately too, beating New Jersey 3-2 on both Monday and Wednesday, coming back from 2 goals down in both contests. Montreal has found their offense recently, helping them to a 4-1 record in their last 5 games overall. The Flyers goal scoring has not been a problem this season as they average nearly 3 per game, near the top of the NHL. OVER has gone 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between these two in Philadelphia, and 8-3 in the last 11 meetings overall. Take the OVER tonight as an underdog.
Free Pick – OVER 5.5 at +100
Vancouver Canucks @ Columbus Blue Jackets – This marks the 7th game of a season-high 14-game road trip for the Canucks, a trip that has seen them split the first 6 games, going 3-3. This is 3rd meeting of the season between the Jackets and Canucks, each winning a game in Vancouver so far this season. The Canucks are 4-0 in their last 4 vs. the Western Conference, and 5-1 in their last 6 games vs. the Central Division. The stats are quite the opposite for the Jackets as they are just 9-20 in their last 29 games vs. the Western Conference and only 2-8 vs. the Northwest Division. Take the Canucks tonight at a good price.

Not only has Pittsburgh won the 4 meetings so far this season, they have done it in convincing fashion. They have scored 20 goals in 4 games vs. the Rangers this year, while giving up just 9.
