Toronto Maple vs Calgary Flames

Calgary FlamesCalgary Flames

 

Tip – Toronto have not been great at home to start the season, losing to the likes of the Ottawa Senators, Pittsburgh Penguins and St. Louis Blues already. But after struggling to find the back of the net against the Penguins and Blues, they put up four on the road against the Winnipeg Jets in a big win. The likes of Auston Matthews, John Tavares, Mitch Marner and even Kasperi Kapanen are more than capable of making it a long night for expected starting goalie Mike Smith. There should be plenty of goals scored in Toronto.

New York Islanders at the Pittsburgh Penguins

Pittsburgh PenguinsPittsburgh Penguins

 

Tip – The New York Islanders are not a very good hockey team and they are even worse on the road. Losing John Tavares to the Toronto Maple Leafs was a huge blow for the franchise and they still haven’t been able to recover. Pittsburgh on the other hand, are one of the deepest sides the league and had won three of the four games they played against the Islanders last season – including both contests played in Pittsburgh. The Penguins should cruise to maximum points.

Expect the Penguins to cruise in this one. 

 

Buffalo Sabres vs Calgary Flames

Calgary FlamesCalgary Flames

 

Tip – The Calgary Flames have had an absolutely brutal schedule to start the season, travelling to the East coast to take on the New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens before heading back home only to fly back just a few days later for two games in two nights. The Flames visit the Scotiabank Arena in a difficult game against the Toronto Maple Leafs before rushing off to Buffalo to play the Sabres. As a result, we will likely see backup goalie David Rittich in net and an exhausted Flames team. Buffalo is a great pick to get the job done in this one.

 

Montreal Canadiens vs Dallas Stars

Tip – Don’t look now but the Montreal Canadiens have come into the season flying, despite the low expectations from fans and journalists alike. They have been impressive in their own building particularly picking up important wins against Western Conference opposition like the Calgary Flames and St. Louis Blues. Max Domi has adjusted well to life with his new club putting up some outstanding numbers and we should see that continue with a high scoring affair at the Bell Centre.

 

Edmonton Oilers vs Chicago Blackhawks

Chicago BlackhawksChicago Blackhawks

 

Tip – The Blackhawks have been impressive on the road, winning games away to the Columbus Blue Jackets, Ottawa Senators, and St. Louis Blues. However, they have a difficult game against the Vancouver Canucks the night before heading into Rogers Place to play the Oilers. Edmonton hasn’t necessarily been firing on all cylinders, but this should be two points in the bag for them.

Vancouver Canucks vs Colorado Avalanche

Colorado AvalancheColorado Avalanche

 

Tip – The Colorado Avalanche will make the trip to Vancouver a night after playing the Flames in Calgary. The Canucks however, will be in the middle of a four game home stand and will be eagerly awaiting the Avalanche to arrive. Colorado has been better than most expected, but so have the Canucks who will be entering the game with a full strength lineup. That likely won’t be the case for the Avalanche who will probably have Semyon Varlamov on the bench for the back end of a back-to-back.
