NHL Predictions and Free Picks December 12th:
Washington Capitals vs. Toronto Maple Leafs – This is the 3rd of 4 meeting between these two this season, with both teams earning victories on home ice. The Capitals beat Toronto 6-4 on OCT 3rd, before Toronto beat the caps in shootout 2-1 on NOV 21. Toronto aims to win their 3rd straight on home ice tonight, a feat that has not been accomplished by the Leafs since Jan, 08. Washington has opened up a 13-point lead in the Southeast division, and 3 point overall lead in the Eastern Conference Standings. The Capitals rallied back to avoid a loss at the hands of the lowly Carolina Hurricanes last night, and I expect them to leave nothing behind tonight in Toronto.

Detroit Red Wings vs. Nashville Predators – Oddly enough, it’s the Red Wings looking up at the Nashville Predators in the Central Division after the Predators have won 15 of their last 21 games overall. The Wings continue to have problems scoring goals, however they did rally back to beat the Ducks 3-2 in extra time last night. The Predators offense has not been the reason why they have been streaking as of late, averaging not even 2.5 goals for per game. Pekka Rinne is expected to get the start tonight for Nashville and he has been great against Detroit in his career. He is 4-1 with a 2.17 goals against average in 5 career decision vs. Detroit. Jimmy Howard has only allowed 4 goals over his last 3 starts for the Wings. I look for a low-scoring affair tonight in Music City.

Dallas Stars vs. Los Angeles Kings – The Los Angeles Kings come into this one with a 7-2-1 record in their last 10 games, and have also taken the first 2 meeting between these two this season. This is the 3rd game in a row against a divisional rival for the Kings, and for Dallas it’s their 4th in their last 5 games. The Kings are 8-1-1 against divisional rivals this season, and are 6-1-1 against Dallas in their last 8 meetings overall. However, after a game for Dallas last night that went to extra time, and a potent Kings offense on the other side, I look for offense to take over tonight in California.
