WIN
YESTERDAY 10:21 PM

Carolina is for real, or at least for real at home. Can the Hurricanes win on the road? Maybe. Are they too fast for the Caps to slow down? Maybe. One thing is for sure: Offense is plentiful, and Washington scores much more frequently at home. Should be a shootout tonight. Go Over.

WPG 2 @ STL 3
4/20
WIN
YESTERDAY 9:58 PM

St. Louis should be firing on all cylinders with the chance to join Colorado, New York and Columbus in the second round. No one would have conceived of a scenario where this could have happened last Oct. 5. The Blues are proving the ?hot goalie? theory is alive and well, and Blues goalie Jordan Binnington is stealing the show so far. One more and on to Round 2. Tonight is the night at home.

LOSS
Fri 4/19

Las Vegas will close out the San Jose Sharks on the road Thursday night and move on to the next round. Every series has featured plenty of surprising result, and this series has been no exception. The Knights have handled the Sharks with relative ease and should be well rested for round two.

4/16
LOSS
Mon 4/15

Calgary must be buoyed by the epic collapse of Tampa because it now inherit the ?best team still standing? mantra. Colorado is a good young team but the Flames are simply better. Colorado had its moment of glory now it?s down to real business. Take the Flames on the road.

LOSS
Mon 4/15

Close game in the last, Dallas knows how to keep it close and tight, which is exactly the recipe to defeat the Predators. Hone ice, smelling a weakness in the Preds armor and a style to frustrate spells trouble for the visitors. Take Dallas to win.
