1.Coyotes at Islanders 7pm
Preview-Arizona is without their number 1 goalie Mike Smith so they will rely on Louise Dominique to be the main goalie right now, the Islanders have played decent but, lost a few close games and they really need to get some wins before they fall to far back, they have the edge offensively in this game.Arizona will need to slow down the speed of the Isles and make this a physical game.
Prediction- 3-1 Islanders, Arizona is playing a back to back and lost bad 5-2 to Montreal, while the Islanders were off, this game will be an Isles win, close in the score but, Islanders will out play the Coyotes.
2.Blackhawks at Blue Jackets 7pm
Preview- Chicago is starting to play better after a bad start, they have the better offense here and the better team, while the Blue Jackets have been struggling to get anything going,they have the players to score, but, are struggling and are falling fast into a long dull season in Columbus.
Prediction – 4-1 Hawks, Chicago will score early and get the game out of reach by the 3rd.
Quick Pick- Predators at Red Wings 730pm (Prediction 3-1 Wings)
1.Rangers at Capitals 7pm NHL Net.
Preview-This has become a new rivlary in the East, both teams have played some great playoff matchups the last few seasons. This is their 1st meeting of the season, the Rangers have played well so far, and shown more speed and quickness this season, while the Capitals are good as always with Ovechkin and Holtby leading them.
Prediction 3-2 Caps,a late goal gets them the points in a close physical game
2. Canadiens at Bruins 7pm CITY
Preview-This is a rivalry game between 2 hated teams in the East, Montreal has been playing well so far lead by Pacioretty and Shea Weber, and Boston has been good lead by Bergeron and Chara.
Prediction- 2-1 Bruins, this will be a Boston game, physical and gritty and a slow pace which is to their liking.
3. Canucks at Kings 10pm CBC
Preview-The Canucks have played well so far, being 4-0 lead by the Sedins they have been off to a better than expected start, the Kings have struggled without their ace goalie Jonathan Quick, they have not played up to their potential and barely beat Dallas on Thursday and looked bad other wise.

1.Oilers at Jets 3pm NHL Net. (Heritage classic outdoors in Winnipeg)
Preview-The Oilers have played well so far, they have shown that maybe they can sneak into the playoffs, the talent is there and they are fun to watch. Winnipeg is a team that always plays hard and is never an easy team to beat. The game outdoors are always a spectacle and fun to watch.
Prediction- 3-1 Oilers, there are never many goals in these games and I expect an empty netter for the 3rd goal.
