7:00 pm ET
Pittsburgh Penguins (15-9-0) at Boston Bruins (15-6-2)
RDS, ROOT, NESN
Jess: This should be an exciting game! They're in Boston, so...sorry BK...I've gotta take the Bruins.
Debi: Sorry, Bry, I'm with Jess on this one. It might go to a shoot out, but I think Boston takes this.
Columbus Blue Jackets (8-12-3) at Toronto Maple Leafs (14-8-1)
Winnipeg Jets (10-11-4) at New Jersey Devils (9-9-5)
Jess: Brodeur seems to be back to early 90's form, doesn't he? Regardless, I think the Jets win this one tonight.
Debi: I gotta go with the Jets.
7:30 pm ET
New York Rangers (12-11-0) at Tampa Bay Lightning (14-8-1)
MSG PLUS, SUN
Jess: I know the Lightning are better, but I can't not pick the Rangers (unless it's against the Ducks...or maybe the Avs.)
Debi: I can pick the Bolts, and I am picking the Bolts, although (not so) secretly I am hoping for the Rangers.
Philadelphia Flyers (11-10-2) at Florida Panthers (6-13-5)
Jess: Gross. Flyers.
Debi: Oh, Philly.
8:00 pm ET
Minnesota Wild (15-5-4) at St. Louis Blues (16-3-3)
Jess: Both decent teams, started out strong and still look solid. I give the Blues the slight edge though.
Debi: This should be an excellent game. The Wild have surprised me a couple of times this year and I think they will fight hard, but I have to give this one to the Blues at home.
Phoenix Coyotes (14-5-4) at Nashville Predators (11-10-2)
Jess: Phoenix just keeps looking better and better. I'm not sure about Nashville, but the Coyotes seem to be on a tear. Gotta go with them.
Debi: The game between the Avs and the Coyotes the other night was one of the best I've seen all year. I just can't go against them.
9:30 pm ET
Chicago Blackhawks (16-4-4) at Edmonton Oilers (7-15-2)
Jess: Aww, those poor Oilers. They're at home though (not that it matters). Ya know what? As much as I enjoy watching the Blackhawks and think they're a pretty complete team, I'm going with the upset tonight just because.
Debi: Hahahahahahahaha do you have to ask?
10:00 pm ET
Los Angeles Kings (15-6-3) at Vancouver Canucks (12-9-4)
Jess: Our resident Kings fan extraordinaire's favorite matchup (or least favorite, depending on how you look at it.) I think the Kings have this game, even if it is north.
Debi: Oh now we are really being hilarious.
Now Jess is going to do her thing, which we love, and give us a video. Yak it up here and enjoy the games.
Jess: It's Monday, and you all know what that means! Greatest hits anyone? Live vicariously through these rough & tumble players and expel some aggression...(vid courtesy of NHL.com)
