NHL Tuesday Night [Live Game Thread]

Midway through the shortened season, Tuesday night 11-game celebration [NHL Live Thread]

3/12/13 in NHL   |   Jess   |   32866 respect

Greetings puckheads! Another Tuesday full of NHL action, with eleven games tonight starting at 7:00pm (eastern time, of course). The Bruins and the Penguins can be enjoyed on the station formerly known as Versus (NBC Sports Network) at 7:30, which should be a treat for even casual fans.

Did you see the killer shot - and even more amazing save - in the shootout between Boston and Ottawa last night? I figured we should share it again. This is why I love hockey, ladies and gentlemen.

Let's get started, shall we?

7:00pm
Game: Rangers (13-9-2) @ Sabres (9-14-3)
Broadcast: MSG, MSG-B 
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
BK - Buffalo can't do anything right, and the Rangers seem like they're starting to pick it up a little. This one might be over quick. Rangers win. 

Jess - Is it finally safe to pick the Rangers? I'll bite.

7:00pm
Game: Hurricanes (14-9-1) @ Capitals (10-13-1)
Broadcast: FS-CR, CSN-DC
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
BK - Sunday against the Rangers may have been the straw that broke the camel's back for the Caps. Thy are at home, but I still think the Canes are slowly but surely becoming the team to beat in the Southeast even without Cam Ward. Canes win on the road. 

Jess - I'm going to give the Caps the benefit of the doubt here and go the other way. Caps win at home, but it might not be pretty.

7:00pm
Game: Canucks (11-7-6) @ Blue Jackets (10-12-4)
Broadcast: SNET-P, FS-O
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
BK - Jackets are playing much better, but I see the streak ending tonight. Canucks win but it won't be easy. 

Jess - Hmm, Jackets are playing well, and they're at home tonight. I'm disagreeing with you again BK -Blue Jackets win....for Debi.

7:30pm
Game: Bruins (17-3-3) @ Penguins (18-8-0)
Broadcast: RDS, TSN, NBCSN, NESN, ROOT
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
BK - The Pens and B's finally play each other. This is gonna be one hell of a game! The Pens have scores the most goals, and the B's have allowed the fewest, something's gotta give! Can the Pens make it 6 in a row? I believe they can. Besides, you know I can never pick against my team. 

Jess - I'll pick your Pens here too, for no real reason. Although, I do know a lot of people who like to see Boston fail at pretty much everything, so that works.

7:30pm 
Game: Lightning (10-14-1) @ Panthers (7-13-6)
Broadcast: SUN, FS-F
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
BK - Both teams are a disappointment, but Florida won't be able to keep up with the Bolts. Tampa Bay walks away with this one. 

Jess - Wow. Woof? Uh...Panthers.

8:00pm
Game: Maple Leafs (15-10-1) @ Jets (12-11-2)
Broadcast: LEAFS TV, TSN-JETS
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
BK - : I am still not sold on the Jets, but I most certainly am sold on the Leafs. Toronto wins this one on the road continuing their impressive turnaround.  

Jess - I really want to pick the Jets, honestly. I just don't see it happening tonight.

8:00pm
Game: Sharks (11-7-6) @ Blues (13-10-2)
Broadcast: CSN-CA, FS-MW
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
BK - The Sharks would certainly like to repay the favor to the Blues for the game they let get away over the weekend, but I've lost all confidence in San Jose. The Blues are better, and they will win this one on home ice.  

Jess - I think the Blues take this at home.

8:00pm
Game: Ducks (18-3-3) @ Wild (13-9-2)
Broadcast: PRIME, FS-N, FS-WI
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
BK - This will be a tough game for both teams. However, I believe Jess's Ducks will emerge victorious when all is said and done tonight. 

Jess - The Wild scare me, especially with my team on the road. I'm not picking, as usual, but I'll be cheering hard.

8:30pm
Game: Predators (10-9-6) @ Stars (12-10-2)
Broadcast: FS-TN, FS-SW+
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
BK - If I want to live I should probably pick the Preds. Aside from that, I want to see #68 cry every night! 

Jess - Go get'em, Nashville.

9:00pm
Game: Oilers (9-11-5) @ Avalanche (10-10-4)
Broadcast: SNET-W, ALT
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
BK - The Avs are at home where they've been very impressive. I gotta take them for the win over a lackluster Oilers team that just can't seem to pull it all together. 

Jess - Two "woof" games in one night? Nah, I like the Avs too much to do that to them. I think they handle the Oilers easily though.

10:00pm
Game: Kings (14-8-2) @ Coyotes (12-10-3)
Broadcast: FS-W, FS-A
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
BK - The Kings are en fuego right now, I can't go against them. LA gets a road win in the night cap!  

Jess - I can't pick the Coyotes over the Kings right now. Unless the Kings have a bad night, they'll kick some desert dog butt.

Usually I like to save the "Hits" vid for Mondays; I just think it fits, ya know? But yesterday there were only two NHL games, so there was no thread. Since it's the midpoint of the season (check out BK's mid-season grades, by the way), we get to see the best hits from the entire season so far (courtesy of Kevin Weekes and NHL.com). 


Nice.

Who are you rooting for? Who wins these games? Q it up here for Tuesday Night Hockey on FanIQ!

"I don't believe what I just saw!"  That was an amazing comeback last night by the Pens!  I'll be honest, they stole that one from the B's, who just ran out of gas in the 3rd period.  I'll take it though.

3/13/13   |   AlwaysSunshine   |   7030 respect

6-0 the game before I go, 4-0 the game after I go.  0-1 the game I go.  WTF is that?  Oh well, More points and the W. 

3/13/13   |   kteacher   |   33977 respect

When the Kings lose, they like to do it 5-2. 

3/12/13   |   Scott   |   49439 respect

Blues continue to own the Sharks.  Bring on the Coyotes
