Coyotes looked good to start but slowly gave the game away to the Jets, suffering an overtime loss in their home opener. Pittsburgh just likes to beat me down, getting the crap kicked out of them instead of kicking the crap out of their opponent. Their Canadian road trip hasn’t been going as planned. I’m hoping tonights games aren’t as spooky as the past few have been.


Chicago Blackhawks (+160) @ Buffalo Sabres (-190)

The Sabres host the Hawks tonight as they attempt to bounce back from 2 straight losses after starting the year 4-1. What I think is most interesting about the Sabres is how good their goaltending has been. Tonights starter is 41 year old Craig Anderson who is 2-0 with a .970 SV% in a great start to the season. Across from him is the main reason I like the Sabres tonight, Arvid Soderblom, who gets his first start of the young season after only playing 2 games last year, where he let in 10 goals in that span. The young net minder is going to have his hands full against a Sabres team with some high end goal scorers, led by Alex Tuch and his 5 goals. Buffalo will be looking for a nice rebound to crack their losing streak, this is a great match up to do it.

Buffalo Sabres to win in Regulation (-120)


Washington Capitals (+110) @ Nashville Predators (-130)

Smashville is back again on home ice, where they pumped St. Louis 6-2 on Thursday for their first win since coming back from Prague. Facing the Capitals won’t be an easy task but after how well their offense was clicking on Thursday I think the Preds stay in the win column tonight. They put up 42 shots against the Blues, which doesn’t include the 19 that the Blues blocked, they aren’t afraid to shoot the puck from anywhere. Backing them is Juuse Saros who has “struggled” to start the year, I say that sarcastically, he is an elite goalie. I like the game that the Preds found last game and I expect that to keep up tonight against a Capitals team that isn’t nearly as dominant as they once were.

Nashville Predators Money Line (-130)


Edmonton Oilers (+130) @ Calgary Flames (-150)

The Battle of Alberta is back for round 2 of 4, with the Oilers looking to even the series. These games are always entertaining, stats seem to go out the door and goals are usually piled on. The Flames are the better team in my opinion, they may not have as explosive of an offense but they can still score goals and are much better on the back end than the Oilers. The Oilers are a very offense first team whose game plan is simply score more goals. Markstrom is a great goalie but over the past 5 games against the Oilers he has averaged 3.2 GAA. I don’t have much more to say about this game other than it’s probably the best rivalry in hockey at the moment so I had to mention it.
