Can the Kings keep Phoenix's slump intact? [NHL Live Thread]

4/2/13 in NHL   |   Jess   |   34631 respect

Greetings, puckheads! I'm on a hockey high, another Tuesday night full of hockey awaits, and my co-hosts and I are here to share our picks and game thoughts with you. What are we waiting for? Let's do this!

Blog Photo - Tuesday Night Hockey Open Game Thread 4/27:00pm
Game: Senators (19-10-6) @ Bruins (22-8-4)
Broadcast: SNET-OTT, TVA, NESN
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
Debi - Yep, it has to start with one I have no idea about. Eee gads. I WANT to pick the Sens, I really do, but they are 3-0 in the series against Boston. Outright loss, loss in OT and loss in the Shoot out. Maybe that means the next step is a win? Sure, I'll go with that. I'll take the Sens, but I'm really not thinking they will win.

BK - This one is tough. Both teams are solidly in the playoff picture, and both are fun to watch. I gotta go with the Bruins being on home ice.

Jess - I would love to see Ottawa get this but I don't think it's going to happen. I think Bruins take this one to celebrate the acquisition of Jagr.

7:00pm
Game: Jets (18-17-2) @ Islanders (17-16-3)
Broadcast: TSN-Jets, MSG PLUS
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
Debi - The Jets are struggling a little, but I'm still taking them for the win.

BK - I agree with you, Debi. Jets it is, not expecting the Isles to win 2 in a row.

Jess - Oye...eenie meenie miney....Isles.

7:00pm
Game: Capitals (16-17-2) @ Hurricanes (16-16-2)
Broadcast: CSN-DC+, FS-CR
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
Debi - This has the makings of being a very close, hard fought game. Both teams have a lot on the line, and both really need to win, so the game may come down the very last possible moment, but I believe the Caps will prevail.

BK - I'm going with a gut feeling here, Canes.

Jess - I think the Hurricanes pull this one off in Raleigh. 

7:30pm
Game: Sabres (13-17-6) @ Penguins (28-8-0)
Broadcast: TSN2, RDS2, NBCSN, ROOT
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
Debi - Pens

BK - No Sid, no Letang, no Martin, but they're still finding ways to win with their new acquisitions. Come on Pens, you're this close, don't let it slip away now!

Jess - Haha BK you act like there's any question. Pens.

7:30pm
Game: Panthers (11-19-6) @ Lightning (15-18-1)
Broadcast: FS-F, SUN
Bet Qbucks on this game!
Picks:
Debi - Ahhh the battle of Florida! LOL I think the Bolts will get this one

BK - Woof...Bolts

Jess - Bolts.

8:00pm
Game: Avalanche (12-19-4) @ Predators (14-14-8)
Broadcast: ALT, FSs-TN
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
Debi - Gotta take the Preds

BK - I gotta go with the Preds, Avs are atrocious on the road.

Jess - Ack. This actually should be a decent game, but I don't think the Avs can defeat the Preds right now.

10:00pm
Game: Kings (20-12-3) @ Coyotes (14-15-6)
Broadcast: NHLN-CA, FS-W, FS-A PLUS
Bet QBucks on this game!
Picks:
Debi - I don't think the Coyotes are going to pull out of their slump tonight. I think LA finishes up the road trip with another win.

BK - The champs will win the night cap.

Jess - Do the Coyotes give the Kings fits? No, wait, that's the Yotes and the Ducks. Kings win.


And since it seems like it's been a while, in honor of Viktor Fasth's shutout against my most hated team last night we're facing off with some Goalie Godliness tonight!

I gave up on the Caps a month ago or so, and basically stopped watching them (I know, I'm a terrible hockey fan). During that time, they started winning and with tonight's win are within 2 points of the division lead. It might be in my best interest to keep staying away.

I tried that with the Flames, but they just lose, whether I watch them or not.

Watching Shoni Schimmel (who is the subject of a documentary called Off the Rez) and the Lady Cards take on Tennessee tonight..  On that note, go Preds! 

***secretly hoping the Cards can bring home TWO national championships in basketball this year.
