Today we have a game on NHL-CA and one on NBCSN; the latter being one that should be exciting for reasons you'll read below. Remember, all times are Eastern...
Game: Panthers (9-17-6) @ Islanders (13-15-3)
Broadcast: NHLN-CA, FS-F, MSG PLUS
Jess - Wow - poor Canada with their NHLN. Woof. Islanders, I guess.
Game: Capitals (14-16-1) @ Rangers (15-13-2)
Broadcast: CSN-DC, MSG
Jess - Ya know, I'm going with the Caps here. I have a soft spot for the Rangers, I love King Henrik, but seems to me Washington is "warm" right now...the Rangers, however, are not.
Game: Flyers (13-16-1) @ Penguins (24-8-0)
Broadcast: RDS, NBCSN, ROOT
Jess - I always love this matchup - it makes for a really fun game to watch. Pens are better, but you never know; Flyers always play tough against them. Hmmm...I'll take Pittsburgh for moral support.
Game: Lightning (13-17-1) @ Jets (16-14-2)
Broadcast: SUN, TSN-JETS
Jess - Jets.
Game: Canucks (16-9-6) @ Avalanche (11-15-4)
Broadcast: SNET-P, ALT
Jess - I think the Avs win here too.
Game: Blues (17-11-2) @ Flames (11-14-4)
Broadcast: FS-MW, SNET-W
Jess - The Blues are ultimately the better team, but they're on a road swing and the Flames are at home, giving Calgary just a slight edge here. This one's difficult but I'm going with Debi's team too. Flames.
Game: Red Wings (15-11-5) @ Ducks (22-4-4)
Broadcast: FS-D, PRIME
Jess - I hope you're right.
We see a lot of great goals, saves, hits, and the occasional fight but you know who doesn't get enough credit around here? The setup guys. Let's take a look at why they deserve just as much credit as the rest!
