Last night I went 2 for 3 in my NHL Predictions for October 16th, with Philly losing to Florida being my only wrong free pick. The Sports Geek newsletter has been hot with NHL so far going 4-0, if you haven’t signed up for the free picks newsletter – Do It! Tonight (October 17th 2009) should be a great night of NHL hockey with 13 games on the line up. The Toronto Maple Leafs and New York Islanders are both looking for their first wins tonight, the Leafs are hosting the Rangers and the Islands are hosting the Sharks. The only all Canadian match up tonight has Alex Kovalev and the Ottawa Senators heading to Montreal to take on the Canadiens.

Saturday October 17th NHL Betting Predictions:
Ottawa Senators vs Montreal Canadiens – The Ottawa Senators have started the season with a 4-2 record. After losing to the Penguins 4-1 at home on Monday night the Senators rebounded with a big 7-1 win over the Lightning Thursday. Alex Kovalev returns to Montreal tonight after signing with the Senators in the off season. The Canadiens have lost four in a row after opening the season with two wins, bringing their record to 2-4. The Canadiens last game was their home opener, in which they lost to the Avalanche 3-2 despite out shooting them 31-23.

New York Rangers vs Toronto Maple Leafs – The New York Rangers are one of the hottest teams in the NHL so far this season, starting with a 6-1-0 record. One of the Rangers wins includes a 7-2 thumping over the Leafs. The Maple Leafs have yet to win a game this season, with their closest being an OT loss in their season opener. The Leafs have had injury troubles with their goalies and will be starting third stringer Joey MacDonald tonight.

San Jose Sharks vs New York Islanders – The San Jose Sharks (3-3-1) are fresh off a disappointing 4-1 loss in Washington on Thursday night. Look for sniper Dany Heatley and play maker Joe Thornton, both who have 10 points early in the season, to get going in tonight’s game. The Islanders have yet to win a game yet with their 0-2-3 record. The positive news for New York is that their young players including rookie sensation John Tavares have looked good and have been putting up some points.
