Monday, November 30th NHL Predictions and Free Picks:
Buffalo Sabres vs. Toronto Maple Leafs – Both of these teams head into this one having won their last two, and Toronto has chance to win 3 in a row for the first time this season. The Leafs took the Sabres to overtime in their last meeting, only to lose one of their 7 extra time losses this season. Buffalo has not lost at Air Canada Centre since March 24, 07 and have won these two teams last 6 meetings overall. Toronto averages 1.4 more goals against per game than Buffalo, although the Leafs have had the more potent offense. I look for goaltending to be the main factor in tonight’s game, with both Ryan Miller and Jonas Gustavsson expected to start.
Free Pick – Bet on the UNDER 6 total goals at -115
Pittsburgh Penguins vs. New York Rangers – The Pittsburgh Penguins come to Madison Square Garden tonight after handing the Rangers an embarrassing 8-3 loss on Saturday. Sidney Crosby’s hat trick helped the Penguins win their 6th game in their last 8 overall. Since a 7-game winning streak earlier in the season, the Rangers have gone 6-12-1 overall. The Rangers average about 30 shots against per game, and Pittsburgh is 14-2 when firing 30 or more shots a game. The Rangers have given up 13 goals in their last 2 games, and Pittsburgh’s offense is hot, especially Sidney Crosby with 6 goals and 8 assists in his last 9 games.
Free Pick – Bet on the OVER 5.5 total goals at -125
Calgary Flames vs. Nashville Predators – Both of these teams come into this game hot. The Calgary Flames can tie a franchise record tonight with points in 10 straight games, while Nashville won their 8th game in their last 9 overall on Saturday against Florida. The Nashville Predators have battled to come within 4 points of the division leading Chicago Blackhawks, mostly due to their play on home ice. This is game 3 of 6 for Calgary on their current road trip, a trip that has seen them go 2-0 thus far. This is the last game of a 3-game homestand for the Preds, going 1-1 thus far after beating Florida on Saturday. I look for Calgary to stay hot on the road to widen their division lead.
Free Pick – Bet on the Flames to win at +100
