Record this month: 5-3
Record this season: 5-3
For just the second time this season, we have a relatively full slate of games. There are a few that I like:
Boston at Anaheim - The Ducks will be out to show everyone that they're better than their current record (1-3-1), and it's their home opener. The Bruins are completely hosed, having to open the season on a five game West Coast swing. They don't have their home opener until October 18th! Does the NHL really have this much trouble with their schedule?
Phoenix at Columbus - The Jackets are looking tough early on with a home victory over the Ducks and a near miss in Minnesota, where it's really tough to win. The Coyotes are not very good.
Florida at Tampa Bay - The Kitty Cats are win-less, and Tampa hasn't lost. Look for both trends to continue tonight.
