After no NHL games being played on Sunday, there are only two games scheduled for tonight (Monday October 5th). The New York Rangers head to New Jersey to take on the Devils, and the Columbus Blue Jackets and Vancouver Canucks square off in Vancouver. There has been a lot of excitement so far in this early NHL season, with a lot of new players making a splash on their new tames – including rookie John Tavares who had a goal and an assist in his debut. The Sports Geek has been pretty spot on with NHL betting predictions this year – Check out the October 5th NHL predictions and betting preview below.

Monday October 5th NHL Betting Predictions:
New York Rangers vs New Jersey Devils – The New York Rangers (1-1) have started the season off with a loss against the Pittsburgh Penguins on the road, and a win over the Ottawa Senators at home on Saturday. New Jersey (0-1) opened their season Saturday with a disappointing 5-2 loss against the hot Philadelphia Flyers. This should be a pretty tight game, as the teams match up pretty well. The Rangers have looked good so far this season, with their addition of Marian Gaborik to the team. Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur had a shaky start to the season in his 1000th career game.

Columbus Blue Jackets vs Vancouver Canucks – The Columbus Blue Jackets (1-0) started the season off with a 2-1 win against the Minnesota Wild. Surprisingly the Vancouver Canucks (0-2) are winless in two road starts, with a 5-3 loss to Calgary in the opening night and a 3-0 loss to Vancouver on Saturday. Blue Jackets goalie Steve Mason looked like he did all of last year in his Calder Trophy year. Luongo has been struggling a little bit so far this season, but look for him to have a solid game tonight in the Canucks first home game.
