I would like to welcome you all to my Hockey Predictions column. Everyday I will be breaking down the NHL board and finding 2 or 3 games that we can make money with. My name is Steve and I have been a Sports Bettor/Handicapper for 7 years now. I look to guide us all into the NHL playoffs with some cash in our pockets.
Tonight we have a large board for a Friday night. We are getting down to crunch time in the NHL with around 20 games left. When looking at the standings in the West only 4 points are separating 5th from 11th. The East has looked much clearer for most of the year but now the Hurricanes and Rangers are trying to fend of teams charging for the last two spots.

Tonight’s NHL Picks
New York Rangers vs. Washington Capitals
This game figures to be a heated affair with Washington currently sitting in 5th and New York in 7th. The Rangers have taken 2 out of the first 3 from Washington, with the latest win coming via the shootout (2-1 on Jan. 24th). Michal Neuvirth gets the call tonight for Washington and he has been absolutely dominant against the Atlantic Division this year (6-2 with a 1.65GAA and a .944 Save Percentage). Henrik Lundqvist will get the nod for Washington. The under has come through in 23 of New York’s 31 road games. The under has also hit in 20 of Washington’s 30 home games. For this reason, and the need for 2 points so large, our pick tonight is

Phoenix Coyotes vs. Columbus Blue Jackets
These are two of the hottest teams in the NHL right now. Phoenix is (8-2) in their last 10, while Columbus has posted a (7-2-1) record to get back in the playoff hunt. Phoenix has dominated this series as of late taking 9 out of their last 10, and their last 6 in Columbus. The major factor I see in this game though is that Phoenix is playing its 3rd game in 4 nights and has been faced with difficult competition on this road trip. Meanwhile Columbus will embark on a road trip following tonight’s game with the Coyotes. In what figures to be a playoff type atmosphere at Nationwide Arena, our pick tonight is

Good luck to everyone tonight.
