NHL PICKS; NOVEMBER 3RD TOP PICKS OF THE NIGHT

Tampa Bay Lightning(8-3-1) vs Montreal Canadiens(7-3-2)

The Canadiens are off to a HOT start, and coming off a big 6-4 win vs the former Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals as the Lightning are coming off a bad loss on home ice vs Nashville. Lightning are in Montreal as the Canadiens are on home ice for the third straight game in a row. Tonight’s game will be an interesting one as the Canadiens continue to try and keep their hot play alive and the Lightning try and get out of the loss column and take one on the road. The Canadiens are 5-2 on home ice as the Lightning are 3-2 on the road. The Lightning will stay on the road for another game tomorrow vs Ottawa so taking both would be great but splitting it is ideal. I think the Lighting can take both these back to back road games. I’d go Lightning tonight they are favorites here on the road even with Montreal’s hot play which is a reason why this game seems to be a trap to take Montreal. Going Tampa Bay tonight.

Edmonton Oilers(7-4-1) vs Detroit Red Wings(4-7-2) 

Hopefully the Oilers do not sh*t the bed like the Devils did Thursday night and lose to Detroit, because I am riding the hot hand Oilers tonight. Coming off a big home win vs Chicago and Mikko Koskinen first NHL win. Tonight the Oilers stay with the young goaltender as the Red Wings try and battle back after their slow start and get back on the right track. This game will be a close game in my eyes, early in the year there is a small margin between good and bad teams, the games are usually either blow outs or close games. This game is making to be a 3-2 type of game, I like Edmonton for the reason that well they are the hot team and coming into this game 7-2-1 in their last 10 games and taking 4 of their last five games. Oilers with the money line tonight.

Dallas Stars(7-5-0) vs Washington Capitals(5-4-2) 

Capitals a little Stanley Cup hung right now? In their last 10 games they are 4-4-2 the positive sign though is that they can always score goals. Not sure what the poor play from Washington is right now but is a perfect time to shake it off and the perfect game to do it. Against a competitive, skilled Dallas team that can bury you if you make stupid mistakes. The Stars are coming into Washington on a two-game win streak and fourth road game in a row, they beat the Canadiens and Toronto on the road so their confidence is high. I think this is a game that Washington ratchets things up and takes a big win on home ice. Capitals, over tonight.

Minnesota Wild(7-3-2) vs St. Louis Blues(4-4-3) 

The Blues are starting to get the pieces together now and getting moving in the right direction. The Wild though are a well balanced team from forward to defense to goalie. Their last game coming Tuesday vs Edmonton on the road in which they won, they have had now three days to travel. I like the added rest and legs to Minnesota tonight, on the road a good game to go after the road team. St. Louis Ryan O’Reilly continues to impress but the worry for St. Louis and this game is their goaltending consistency, when Jake Allen is on he is solid but I like Minnesota tonight with the money line.

Carolina Hurricanes(6-5-2) vs Vegas Golden Knights(5-7-2) 

Seems like the Vegas fire has run out this year? The Golden Knights as you can tell are not off to a good start, what used to be sure games for them at home are not anymore. They are 2-4 at home this season and while they started off the season with five road games, losing 3 of 5 makes it difficult for a team to get much going. After losing to Nashville and St. Louis on the road the Golden Knights come back to home ice with a chance to get some confidence going as they prepare for another four game road trip after this game. The Hurricanes are 3-4 on the road and their real bright spot has been Finland forward Sebastian Aho, seems like every game he is setting a record. Aho has 17 points in 13 games. The Golden Knights keep him off the scoresheet they are good to go. Staying with Vegas here as they need a win desperately before this road trip. Vegas money line.

Columbus Blue Jackets(7-5-0) vs Los Angeles Kings(3-8-2) 

The Kings have been off to a terrible start, struggling to score, struggling to get any offense going and now Jonathan Quick needs surgery and Petr Budaj and Jack Campbell will have to pick up the slack. A rough start for L.A. this season and it won’t look better after they lose to Columbus tonight at home. Columbus is coming off a big road win vs San Jose and stay in the California area for another road tilt. I think this is a good give me type of game. The Kings will compete for sure but I see the Blue Jackets coming out on top and taking this game at the end. Columbus money line.

Other games on tonight…. (don’t bother with games highlighted)

Devils(5-4-1) vs Islanders(7-4-1): Islanders

Leafs(8-5-0) vs Penguins(6-2-3): Don’t bother. Both coming off loses and struggling a bit right now. Not a good game to go after. 

Bruins(7-3-2) vs Predators(10-3-0): Don’t bother Predators are hot don’t even bet against them and betting with them provides little value. 

Blackhawks(6-5-3) vs Flames(8-5-1): Both inconsistent and don’t like this game. 

Flyers(6-7-0) vs Sharks(6-4-3): Sharks should win but anything can happen with the Flyers.
