We are back at it for an action packed Saturday in the NHL. 10 games on the schedule tonight so the playoff standings will be shuffled yet again. Some teams also face make or break games as they cannot afford anymore losses. It should be entertaining hockey and I have 3 excellent picks for today.

NHL Picks For Tonight:
Anaheim Ducks vs. Los Angeles Kings
Currently the only team in the Pacific Division not occupying a playoff spot, the Anaheim Ducks invade Los Angeles tonight. Anaheim sits just 2 points back of 8th place Calgary and has 3 games in hand on them. The Kings sit in 5th place, and in past years that would have been a big difference on the 10th place Ducks, but the West is crazy this year. Only 4 points separate these two teams in the standings, making tonight’s battle of California a big one. The Kings have taken 2 of 3 this year in this matchup and 8 out of the last 11 overall. Ray Emery will most likely be in between the pipes tonight as he tries to get his NHL career back on track. The under has hit in 4 out of the past 5 matchups and I look for that trend to continue tonight. I also can’t look past that Anaheim is currently posted as a +151 road dog. Tonight we are going to go with Ray to backstop the Ducks to a big road victory in a low scoring affair.

Atlanta Thrashers vs. Buffalo Sabres
These two teams continue to fight for the final playoff spot in the East. The Thrashers are currently 4 points back from the 8th place Buffalo Sabres and will look to close the gap tonight. The Sabres have taken 2 of 3 from the Thrashers this year and look to continue their winning trend. The Sabres are one of the few teams in the NHL who actually have a better road record than a home record. I would think the noisy HSBC Arena would give the Sabres a greater success rate, but they have played below .500 on the year at home. The Thrashers have struggled playing on the road as of late going on 2-7 over their past 9. They have done an excellent job picking up at least a point as of late though, going past 60 minutes in 7 of their past 10 games. That trend has a strong chance to continue tonight as 6 of the past 10 games between the Thrashers and Sabres have needed extra time. I do not normally do this but in such a big game for both teams we are going with a 3 point game.
