Yesterday, there was only 1 game in the NHL which I got my only prediction wrong. Today, there will only be 3 games in the NHL.
Leafs(5-1-1)/Flyers(4-2-1): Flyers over Leafs 5-3 – With Jonas Gustavsson starting in goal for at least one game due to James Reimer’s neck injury, the Leafs will have to play better than they have all season which has been really good. Reason I say they have to play better is because Gustavsson (the monster) isn’t playing very well and needs to improve his rebound control. With that being said, Ilya Bryzgalov will have a strong night for the Flyers which will help them defeat the Leafs.
Panthers(4-3-0)/Canadiens(1-4-2): Canadiens over Panthers 4-2 – Peter Budaj is expected to start in net for the Canadiens which means Carey Price will have to wait at least 1 more game before he has another shot at his 100th career win. The Canadiens know they need to win as changes (trades) are expected to happen if they don’t. They will have extra “jump” in their game which will help them end their 5 game losing streak.
Rangers(2-2-2)/Jets(2-4-1): Rangers over Jets 4-1 – After being shut-out by the Oilers, the Rangers will have a good ounce back game against the Jets. Henrik Lundqvist will continue his solid play in net while the offense with the lowest “goals per game average” will finally “click” when it comes to the chemistry they need to find. Brad Richards and Marian Gaborik will lead the Rangers to a win over the Jets.
Overall record: 47-48.
