We explained this in detail around the 28-minute mark or say of today’s show, but here’s the deal. Every Friday we’re going to hold a draft in which we take turns picking the winners of that Saturday’s slate of games. On Monday we’ll recap the results, and the winner will get to pick one game (anytime between Monday-Thursday) which the loser has to watch, and track scoring chances for (which’ll be posted on NHL Numbers). That’s the plan. Here are this week’s picks (in bold):
Boston @ Philadelphia
St.Louis @ New York Islanders
Washington @ Montreal
Colorado @ Tampa Bay
Pittsburgh @ Dallas
New York Rangers @ New Jersey (*)
Ottawa @ Carolina
Toronto @ Winnipeg
Buffalo @ Columbus
Anaheim @ Los Angeles
Minnesota @ San Jose
(*) Cam won the coin toss, and got to pick the extra (outdoor) game on Sunday, as a tiebreaker of sorts.
