Only 2 games yesterday.

The Capitals beat the Bruins 2-1 but the Bruins rested most of their team.  It was a smart move with nothing to gain or lose.

The Jets finally picked up a much needed win when they beat the Canucks 5-0.  Hopefully for the Jets they can get back to playing some decent hockey after having a rough go.  Coming in to this game the Jets had lost seven straight home games and nine of 10 overall.  With a dominate win it should swing momentum back on their side.

The playoffs start on Saturday for the U.S teams, the Canadian teams playoffs won’t start until after Wednesday.
We have 5 games scheduled for tonight. I am over the regular season and am ready for the playoffs to start.

Oilers vs Canadiens

The outcome of this game won’t change anything in the standings. I would say the Oilers would win but they may rest players.  No idea what or who both teams will bring to the rink for this game. 

Leafs vs Senators

Another game where there is nothing to be gained or lost.  The Leafs have won the North Divison and the Senators are eliminated.   The Leafs will start Andersen for the first time since March 19th.  These games are usually good games and fun to watch but I’m not sure what will happen as the Leafs would be smart to rest their players before the playoffs begin.

Wild vs Blues

The Blues are in 4th and not going anywhere.  The Wild have a shot at getting into 2nd in the West Divison.  They have 75 points with 2 games left, the Avalanche have 78 points with 2 left.

So if the Wild can win their last 2 games and the Avalanche lose theirs than the Wild would finish in 2nd. 

I would say with something to gain I expect the Wild to come out and be the better team in this game.

Knights vs Sharks

The Knights are in 1st place in the West but have only a 2 point lead over the 2nd place Avs.  This is their final game.

The Knights know what’s at stake here and they will need to play accordingly.  I expect them to win this game.

Kings vs Avalanche

As mentioned above, the Avs have a shot at winning the West.  I expect them to come out ready for this game as they can’t afford to give their players a night off with so much on the line.

Gonna have to go with the Sharks.

Final game of the season, at home. Lost every single game to Vegas so far. I expect a massive effort after 3 days off to end the season, beating this team once for the fans. No pressure, bunch of young guys out there and a lot of amped-up frustration against this team.

Vegas have to be tired. They’re playing their 9th game in 15 days and had to grind one out the other night with 9 forwards – speaking of that game they really wanted it and lost it in a deflating way. I feel like it’s hard to bring energy for this game. Yeah 1st place and all that, but at the end of the day it’s somewhat smoke and mirrors. They know their next game is in the playoffs regardless. They know the Sharks suck. If anything, standings can put extra pressure on Vegas to win a game they should win.

Sharks also beat the Avs couple games ago and they’ve been scoring some goals lately so it’s not like they’re going into this game on a 8-game losing skid or something.

Western Rattlers

Either Discus was picky today or I can’t spot a good crosswalk.
I have to go with the good teams with something important on the line.
To WIN: Ottawa and Vegas

Playing bottom-feeder teams helps the clarity. Toronto should rest many players if they follow standard NHL practice. Ottawa never quits and hasn’t been concerned with the playoff race; they play because they’re a hot young team with a very promising future. They’ll clobber Toronto. I’m considering the puckline there. I dropped the idea of Colorado winning, they’ve failed me too often.

SanDiegoBruins

Lotsa goals

Going with Sens Leafs over 6.5
Knights ml + over 219 Celtics (8-1 L9)
