Blog Photo - NHL Thursday Night Live ThreadGreetings, puckheads, and Happy Thursday! As usual on a Thursday night, we have a full plate of hockey for our enjoyment. Joining me today is my co-host, kramer, or Bryan, or as I like to call him; BK. He and I will be providing our picks, links to bet on the games, and of course the schedule so you can pick and choose your game(s). Let's see what we have going on tonight on the ice...(all times eastern.)

7:00pm - Sharks @ Penguins on CSN-CA, ROOT
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
BK - We haven't beaten San Jose since the 8th grade picnic. I say game of the night here. I'm nervous as heck but you know I can't pick against my team.

Jess - You know what, BK? I'm picking the Penguins too.

7:00pm - Rangers @ Sabres on MSG, MSG-B, BELL TV
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
BK - The Rangers are starting to heat up, and Buffalo is, well, you know. Rangers win.

Jess - I don't know, the Rangers make me sad sometimes. But I think they can take the Sabres.

7:00pm - Stars @ Maple Leafs on FS-SW, LEAFS TV
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
BK - Jess may strangle me, but I'm feeling the Stars here. Toronto is in a bit of a funk.

Jess - Grrr...I wouldn't care if the Stars were undefeated, I will never pick them.

7:30pm - Bruins @ Canadiens on RDS, NESN, TSN-HABS
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
BK - One of the oldest rivalries in all of hockey, this should be an awesome game. Les Habitants vont gagner ce soir!

Jess - I like the Bruins here for no real reason. Good match, good rivalry, it'll be fun.

7:30pm - Senators @ Lightning on SNET-OTT, TVA, SUN
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
BK - Ottawa is struggling horribly right now. As bad as it looks for Tampa, they should still be able to beat a currently hapless Ottawa squad on home ice.

Jess - Yea, the Lightning are still a much better team overall than Ottawa, despite recent struggles. Bolts win.

7:30pm - Jets @ Panthers on TSN-JETS, FS-F
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
BK - Wow, Florida has managed to win a few games recently. Not tonight though, WINnipeg takes it.

Jess - I don't know either of these teams. At all. I'll play along and pick the Jets too.

8:00pm - Islanders @ Blues on MSG PLUS, FS-MW
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
BK - The Isles have been blowing leads left and right lately, and have lost 7 straight. I don't see the streak ending on the road against the Blues.

Jess - No, I don't either. Even if the Isles weren't playing like ish right now, the Blues are a scary team. They've got this one, easy.

8:00pm - Hurricanes @ Predators on SPSO, FS-TN
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
BK - Preds win this one at home, Carolina isn't impressing me right now.

Jess - I'm with Preds at home too.

8:00pm - Blackhawks @ Wild on NHLN-US, CSN-CH, FS-N
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
BK - This one should be exciting. With this one in Minnesota, I will give the edge to the Wild.

Jess - I always like this matchup. I don't think Minnesota gets this win though - Blackhawks for me.

9:30 pm - Avalanche @ Oilers on ALT, SNET-EDM
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
BK - HA! Avs will have this one wrapped up early.

Jess - Avs

And because, for the most part, these threads are a team effort, I thought I would stay with the spirit of the team and give you the Top 10 dishes today! Enjoy! (Vid courtesy of NHL.com)

It's been a long time since we've beaten the Sharks so handedly.  Way to go Pens!

This was not the day I envisioned for my day off.  All afternoon in meetings.  Now I'm out of water in my cistern.  Glad to hear that Johnny Boychuck is able to move all his extremities.
