Greetings, sports fans! It's Tuesday, and you know what that means...we welcome another new week of sports and recap the previous NFL week (which was quite odd this time.) Today we get to see a good amount of hockey, basketball, NCAAF, and more. But first, let's see what's been going on in the blog!
The NFL Power Rankings are out, and I bet you can guess who sits on top.....may of the From the Armchair articles are out as well, and you can find them all in our Fan Cave.....so we knew this whole Richie Incognito thing is a mess, but did you know that he once starred in a Fan Code of Conduct PSA? That's rich, right? (No pun intended...honest.).....speaking of Fan Codes of Conduct, this one is probably my favorite ever. Thanks, Atlanta.....Poor Matt Flynn can't catch a break; he was released by the Bills yesterday....and not a moment too soon for the Packers - I'm sure they're not going to want to go with Seneca Wallace down the stretch.....and because I love him, check out how the Rangers record has improved with Lundqvist finding his game.
For more of what you may have missed over the weekend and yesterday, go to the Best of the Web homepage and poke around! Now let's take a look at the schedule, all times eastern of course. For the NHL, my co-hosts join me in making our picks. Please welcome Debi and BK to the fold!
7:00pm - Stars (6-6-2) @ Bruins (8-5-0) on FS-SW+, NESN
BK - Sigh...Bruins
Jess - Do I even need to say it?
7:00pm - Islanders (6-5-3) @ Capitals (7-7-0) on MSG PLUS, CSN-DC
BK - This will indeed be a good game. I think home ice rules here, gotta give the nod to the Caps.
Jess - Caps.
7:00pm - Senators (4-6-4) @ Blue Jackets (5-8-0) on SNET-E, FS-O
BK - Both of these teams could use a win. I think Columbus pulls it out at home.
Jess - I was going to say Blue Jackets, but something's pulling me toward the Sens in this one. I'm going to listen to that.
7:30pm - Blues (8-2-2) @ Canadiens (8-7-0) on RDS, TSN, FS-MW
BK - Ooh, I think this might be the game of the night! Eenie-meenie-miney...Les Habitants vont...gagner ce soir !
Jess - I'm with Debi here - I think St. Louis is a more complete this year.
7:30pm - Oilers (3-10-2) @ Panthers (3-8-3) on SNET-W, FS-F
BK - HAHAHA...woof! Ummm, this one will be comic relief at its finest. Hmm...Panthers in a 1-0 15-round shootout?
Jess - I still hold fast to the philosophy that two horrible teams can give us a fantastic game. That said, I may actually watch this one! But, taking the Panthers.
7:30pm - Flyers (4-9-0) @ Hurricanes (4-7-3) on NBCSN, CSN-PH
Jess - I like Carolina here too, but not because I care one way or another about the Flyers. They're at home, and usually when teams are fairly well matched like these two, I tend to pick the home team.
8:00pm - Flames (6-6-2) @ Wild (8-4-3) on SNET-W, SNET-CGY, FS-N
BK - This should be a good one too. I think I'll take the Flames here for a nice road win.
Jess - Go Flames!
9:00pm - Canucks (10-5-1) @ Coyotes (10-3-2) on SNET-P, KTVK
BK - Phoenix is playing excellent at home and I think that trend continues tonight, Coyotes win.
Jess - I'm pretty sure the Coyotes have the edge here.
10:30pm - Sabres @ Sharks on MSG-B, BELL TV, CSN-CA
Jess - Oh sweet Jesus. This will get ugly, and fast, I think. Sharks, of course. Ugh.
And since I missed out yesterday on posting a video for your hockey pleasure, I'm going to slate in what I'd normally post on Mondays with some greatest hits of the past week. Enjoy!
7:00pm - Heat @ Raptors on SUN
7:30pm - Jazz @ Nets on FSRM
