Tonight, January the 21st, sees a jam-packed 13 game schedule after just 3 games in action last night. After coming within a hair of a 3 for 3 night last night, I see plenty of opportunity on tonight’s NHL board as well. Tonight’s featured games include the Carolina Hurricanes visiting the Atlanta Thrashers, the Philadelphia Flyers will play host to the New York Rangers, and the Chicago Blackhawks invade Calgary to take on the Flames. Plenty of other action all throughout the night tonight in the NHL so do not miss out on the continued excitement the NHL has to offer. Also be sure to get your FREE NHL predictions and picks below.

NHL Predictions and Free Picks January 21st:
Carolina Hurricanes @ Atlanta Thrashers – It’s the start of a mini two game road trip tonight for Carolina, and they have been among the worst road teams in the NHL all season long. The Canes are 16-36 in their last 52 road games overall, and 16-38 in their last 54 games as a road underdog. On the other hand, the Thrashers are among the league’s best in goals for (3.04 per game) and are on the cusp of their 2nd playoff berth in team history. The Thrashers are 6-2 in their last 8 home games, and 5-2 in their last 7 as a home favorite. I like to home team to beat the league’s worst tonight in Atlanta.
Free Pick – THRASHERS to win (-150)
New York Rangers @ Philadelphia Flyers – The Rangers come into tonight’s action sitting in 6th spot in the Eastern Conference, while the Flyers sit one point out of 8th behind the New York Islanders. These two have split the two previous meetings this year, with each team winning on the road so far. The Rangers play excellent hockey in the city of brotherly love. They are 14-3 in their last 17 visits to Philly, and 4-1 in the last 5 meetings overall. The road team is also 23-10 in the last 33 games between these two divisional rivals, and I look for the underdog to continue that trend tonight.
Free Pick – RANGERS to win (+130)
Chicago Blackhawks @ Calgary Flames – There is a lot of talent on display in Calgary tonight as the Flames try to end a 5-game losing skid by beating the Blackhawks for the first time in the regular season in 22 months. The Hawks are in the midst of a season-high 8 game road trip, but they have won the last 6 regular season meetings in Calgary. These two have combined for a total of 19 goals in their 2 previous games this season. OVER is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings between these two, and 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Calgary. I like a high-scoring affair tonight from the Saddledome.
Free Pick – OVER 5.5 total goals (+110)
