Greetings, sports fans, and Happy Monday! I understand most of you don't like Mondays, but we get a treat today, with both MNF and an important World Series game. Also on the slate is some NBA preseason, soccer, tennis, hockey, and even some boxing! Due to the bulk of this blog, I won't be summarizing the weekend on the blog again today, but you can check out what's been happening by going to the FanIQ Best of the Web homepage and scrolling through! (I highly recommend doing so...there's some great stuff in there!) 

Joining me for the hockey portion of the blog are my NHL cohorts, Debi and BK. We'll provide our picks along with the schedule, as per usual. Let's get to it!

MNF:
8:30pm - Seahawks (6-1) @ Rams (3-4)

Broadcast - ESPN/WatchESPN
My Pick - The usual. I know everyone's chalking this up as an easy win, but regardless of the fact that Bradford is out, I think the Rams will battle. Division games are always gritty, and lately the Seahawks have had to beat themselves as well as their opponents. I think the spread is up to 14 points...my advice to you is not to take it. Maybe. You do what you want.
Bet QBucks on this game!

8:07pm - Red Sox (Lester) @ Cardinals (Wainwright)
World Series Game 5, Series tied 2-2
Broadcast - FOX
My Pick - Ah the game everybody besides Seahawks fans will be watching. Red Sox fans who have been paying attention want me to pick the Cardinals. Cardinals fans who have been paying attention want me to pick the Red Sox. I'll pick...St. Louis at home.

Blog Photo - Game On! Sports Lineup 10/28/137:00pm - Pittsburgh Penguins (7-4-0) @ Carolina Hurricanes (4-4-3)
Broadcast - ROOT, FS-CR
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
BK - The Pens will end this slump tonight. That is all.

Jess - Carolina is doing better than I thought. But, I still don't think they quite match up to the Pens. Pittsburgh wins.

7:30pm - Montréal Canadiens (6-5-0) @ NY Rangers (3-6-0)
Broadcast - RDS, NBCSN, TSN-HABS, MSG
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
BK - It's finally opening night at MSG, remodeling is complete and the home team will shine under the bright lights of Broadway. I hope they kept the buzzer!
 
Jess - I thought I read that wrong when I saw "home opener" earlier this morning - they're seriously just now getting a home game? Crazy! No wonder they've had such a rough start. Rangers.

8:00pm - Chicago Blackhawks (6-2-3) @ Minnesota Wild (6-3-3)
Broadcast - CSN-CH, FS-N
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
BK - I can't see the Hawks losing 2 in a row that badl. They return the favor and win in the Wild's house tonight.
 
Jess - Wow, I don't know. As good as the Hawks are, and as much as I see them coming out swinging tonight after that tough loss, the Wild are a strong team and they're at home. I think they take it.

10:00pm - Washington Capitals (5-6-0) @ Vancouver Canucks (8-4-1) 
Broadcast - CSN-DC, SNET-VAN
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
BK - The Caps complete their western Canada swing here, and I know Debi will hate me for this, but I think the Canucks will win it.
 
Jess - The Canucks are the better team here, but I'm going to give the Caps the upset.

And it's Monday, so you know what that means! Live vicariously through these guys and enjoy some of the best hits of the week in the video below, courtesy of NHL.com

Congrats to Jason Megna on his first NHL goal.  It's not every day you can say "I scored my first goal because Sidney Crosby shot the puck off my leg and into the net."

I think it's safe to say Kellen Clemens is not going to steal Sam Bradford's job

Haha...well, I've learned over the years not to get my hopes up too much, regardless of an opponent's record or what they have working against them!
