Tuesday November 17 NHL Predictions and Free Picks:
Washington Capitals vs. New York Rangers – Tonight is expected to mark the return of Alex Ovechkin back into the Washington lineup. The Capitals couldn’t ask for a better venue for the return of their superstar, playing at Madison Square Garden against a fellow top Eastern Conference seed. Washington has easily been the better team in their last 10 games, as New York posts an under .500 record during that span. I look for Washington to win a high scoring affair.
Bet on Washington to win at -110 – $100 bet on the Caps pays $190, bet it at Bodog.ca
Montreal Canadiens vs. Carolina Hurricanes – Carolina just recently snapped a horrid 14-game losing streak with a shootout victory over the Minnesota Wild, while Montreal has also not been at their best as of late either. Carolina is averaging between 3.5-4 goals against per game, while the penalty killing percentages for both team lie under 80. I look for Carolina to come out with an inspired effort, and Montreal to counter with a solid game on home ice. I look for both teams to be able to capitalize off each others mistakes throughout the matchup.
Bet on the over 5.5 total goals at -105 – Bet it at Bodog.ca
San Jose Sharks vs. Nashville Predators – The San Jose Sharks are on of the league’s hottest teams of late, grabbing at least one point in 12 consecutive games, while the Nashville Predators have won 7 of their last 10. Goaltending has been strong on both sides as well, with Pekka Rinne shutting the door for the Predators. Although nothing should be taken away from Nashville, San Jose has the more consistent offense and defense this season, and winning on the road has not been a problem.
