NHL Predictions and Free Picks February 4th:
Dallas Stars @ Columbus Blue Jackets – The Columbus Blue Jackets made a coaching change yesterday,firing Ken Hitchcock, and naming assistant coach Claude Noel Interim Head Coach. This is the 4th meeting of the season between the Stars and Jackets, with Columbus taking 2 of the previous 3 games thus far. The Stars finished up a 4 game homestand with 3 wins, and are a respectable 6-4 in their last 10 games. Dallas is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Columbus, and 24-9 in the last 33 meetings overall. I am leaning towards the road dog tonight against an unstable Blue Jackets team.
Free Pick – STARS to win at +110
New York Islanders @ Tampa Bay Lightning – The New York Islanders carry with them a 5-game losing skid into Tampa Bay, who has taken the 2 previous meetings with the Isles this season. The Islanders are 12-48 in their last 60 games as a road underdog, and that plays much into the hands of the Lightning for tonight’s game. Both the home team and the favorite are 4-1 in the last 5 head-to-head meetings. The Islanders are 6-15 in the last 21 meetings overall, and 2-8 in the last 10 meetings in Tampa Bay. Tampa has been a tough team to play against at home this season, as I am leaning towards the home favorite tonight.
Free Pick – LIGHTNING to win at -150
Colorado Avalanche @ Nashville Predators – Colorado comes into tonight’s game having dropped 3 of their last 4, while the Predators have not been much better as Nashville is 1-6 in their last 7 overall. Nashville lost 1-0 to the Phoenix Coyotes in a shootout in their last home action, while Colorado snapped a 3-game losing streak with a 5-1 win over Columbus on Tuesday night. Colorado plays well within the tough Western Conference, as they are 6-1 in their last 7 vs. the Central Division. Colorado is 4-1 in their last 5 games as an underdog, while the Predators are 0-5 in their last 5 vs. the Western Conference. Take the road underdog tonight against a struggling home team.
