I'm going to Vegas tonight for the weekend and would like some help with my picks. This might seem like a big mess, I guess you have to look at the schedule on TSN or something, but my picks are at the bottom. Any thoughts? What are you going to play this weekend?
STATUS/FATIGUE: This will say if they've played back-to-back games, are on a long road trip, are injured, etc.
HOT: 0.5 means they are playing .500 hockey, etc.
Boston over Buffalo, Feb. 8
San Jose over Columbus, Feb. 8
Detroit over Toronto, Feb. 9
Minnesota over Islanders, Feb. 9
Nashville over San Jose, Feb. 9
Minnesota over St. Louis, Feb. 10
Philadelphia over Pittsburgh, Feb. 10
For example, the first game, Feb. 8 Anaheim at Jersey:
Anaheim is playing back-to-back and are on the 7th game of a 9 game roadtrip. They are playing 0.500 hockey, their PP is poor and PK is avg.
Jersey is rested. They are playing .500 hockey, their PP is poor, their PK is avg.
"Nicked" means the team has a few slight injuries. "Banged up" means they have significant injuries.
3-in-4/bb means the third game in four nights and also back-to-back games.
If a team doesn't have back-to-back or 3-in-4 or 4-in-6, that means they are rested.
