FREE NHL Picks: February 21, 2018

I need to pump the brakes may be, last night I went 3-4-1, on the week I am 5-6-1, not great, and plus there are only three games tonight so I will not be going into too much depth, perhaps more of a comical, cynical twist on the picks today. A bunch of slump games no one cares about either, Senators vs Blackhawks sweet, catch me watching speedy skating or some junk. Ducks vs Stars is a solid game but two playoff teams, that will battle, but Gibson is out, of course, the guy is made of glass, Miller steps up big time takes it to Dallas. Vegas vs Calgary probably one of the better matchups but at 10:30 p.m. (est) start time I don’t know many people staying up to watch this one. 

Ottawa Senators(21-28-9) vs Chicago Blackhawks(25-27-8)

The Senators are terrible the Hawks are terrible. This game is terrible. The Blackhawks are literally 1-8-1 in their last ten games and are on the downfall of their season, they are amongst the worst of the worst right now. If this teams play was not enough of an embarrassment for Chicago fans, the incident the other night with Devante Smith-Pelly and Blackhawks fans make this organization a real sh*t storm right now, it’s 2018 Chicago fans, leave your garbage comments out of this sport. Hope Senators blow them out of the water now after that incident, Sens are also 6-4-0 in their last ten, playing much better hockey. Matt Duchene is picking up his play, Senators offense is sort of clicking and Craig Anderson isn’t allowing six-plus goals anymore. See a nice road win out of Ottawa tonight.

Dallas Stars(34-21-4) vs Anaheim Ducks(30-20-11)

This a playoff battle, through and through the Ducks sit tied with L.A. for the three spot in the Pacific division, Dallas tied with St. Louis for the three spot in the Central. See this game going to overtime, a game down to the wire honestly, but without John Gibson, Ryan Miller gets the nod and tries to fend off the Stars high powered offense. The Ducks are coming off a huge 2-0 vs Vegas in Vegas, on a three-game winning streak and 5-3-2 in their last ten, coming off a four-game road trip, return home to a 15-9-4 record. Dallas is 13-12-3 on the road,6-4-0 in their last ten and coming off a terrible loss to San Jose, San Jose is not a terrible team but 5-2, cmon Dallas. I don’t see Anaheim slowing down and having the Stars come into their home arena and knocking them off their win streak, Miller in or not, going Anaheim.

Calgary Flames(30-21-9) vs Vegas Golden Knights(39-16-4)

Vegas has a chance to be the second team in the NHL to reach that 40 win mark and go u against one of the best road teams, luckily Vegas is 22-5-2 at home, but they did drop one to Anaheim at home the other night. Calgary is capable of coming in and winning this game, two points out of a playoff spot, coming off a tough overtime loss to Boston, the Flames are hungry. Perhaps Vegas took the foot off the gas recently a 6-4-0 in their last ten, dropping 2 of their last five home games and have been enjoying the home-ice advantage for the last two week. Vegas is a great team and so is Calgary, it will be an even matchup, these two have met one time prior to this and Vegas took it in Calgary 4-2, they meet two more times after this meeting but tonight I see Vegas winning it they have not dropped two in a row at home his season.
