7:00pm: Devils (15-12-9) @ Bruins (23-8-4)
Broadcast: NHLN-US, MSG, NESN
Jess - I agree; I don't see the Devils beating Boston at home. Although I do have a question for you, BK - now that Jagr is a Bruin does your wishing for the Stars to lose transfer to Boston?
7:00pm: Flyers (16-17-3) @ Maple Leafs (20-12-4)
Broadcast: CSN-PH, SNET-O
Jess - Aww Lupul. I miss him. Leafs win.
7:00pm: Islanders (18-16-3) @ Capitals (17-17-2)
Broadcast: MSG PLUS, CSN-DC
Jess - I don't know what it is about the Islanders but something about them makes me dislike them slightly. Colors? Redirected indifference? I don't know. I'm calling it for Washington at home, just because.
7:00pm: Lightning (15-18-2) @ Hurricanes (16-17-2)
Broadcast: SUN, FS-CR
Debi - Damn. Have to start with one I really have no clue about. Bolts have won the previous ones so I'll go with the Canes to win. Don't ask me why.
Jess - Hurricanes.
7:30pm: Jets (18-18-2) @ Canadiens (23-8-5)
Broadcast: RDS, TSN-JETS, TSN-HABS
Debi - Gotta go with the Habs even tho they've let me down lately
Jess - Unanimous.
8:00pm: Blue Jackets (15-14-7) @ Predators (15-14-8)
Broadcast: FS-O, FS-TN
Debi - With Gaborik in the lineup tonight the Blue Jackets might have some new life but I think home ice advantage may play in the favor of the Preds so I'll take them
Jess - I always enjoy this matchup, and tonight it appears to be just as exciting as usual. Just for fun, I'm going to say Preds win in overtime or the shootout in a low scoring battle.
8:30pm: Blues (18-14-2) @ Blackhawks (27-5-3)
Broadcast: FS-MW, CSN-CH
Jess - Blackhawks
10:00pm: Red Wings (18-13-5) @ Coyotes (15-15-6)
Broadcast: FS-D, FS-A
Debi - Wings
Jess - I'm with you BK, but I don't really care one way or another about the Wings unless they're killing my Ducks. I just know they're closer in the playoff hunt.
10:30pm: Oilers (16-13-7) @ Canucks (19-11-6)
Broadcast: SNET-W, SNET-P
Debi - oh please please please!!!!
Jess - Hmm The Canucks are weird, but I'm not sure that the Oilers will do it again. I think Vancouver wins. (I hope I'm wrong)
10:30pm: Wild (21-13-2) @ Kings (20-13-3)
Broadcast: NHLN-US, FS-N, FS-WI, FS-W
BK - Kings take the night cap at Staples. Pominville will add some scoring to the Wild but it won't be enough.
Jess - Wait, where the hell did the Wild come from? All of a sudden out of nowhere they're actually legitimately at the top of the pack, regardless of division. Oh well. I say Kings win at home anyway.
