Here are today's NHL Picks for Tuesday, October 28, 2008

Ron's Straight Up Record: 74 wins 47 losses for (61%)

*Note: Ron went 11-4 (SU) on Saturday night and 13-0 (SU) on Saturday, October 28th for a combined Saturday record of 24-4!


Nashville vs. Washington


(5.5) (-130)

Ron's Comment: Both teams are hovering at the .500 mark and let's not forget, the Capitals were a bad hockey team the first half of the season last year and now that the new head coach novelty has worn off, the Capitals have yet to really impress this season. Furthermore, Ovechkin is back in Russia attending personal issues, so no great 8 in the line up tonight for the Caps.

Prediction: Nashville 3 Washington 2

Philadelphia vs. Atlanta


(-125) (5.5)

Ron's Comment: Wow, talk about your trap game! Here's the thing about supporting the Philadelphia Flyers this evening vs. the 2-6 Thrashers. In fact, both teams are 2-6 SU on the season, but the Flyers have played teams with a winning record in each of their first 8 games of the season, so their strength of schedule is much tougher then Atlanta's. Furthermore, the Flyers are coming off 2 big emotional wins over the Devils, therefore, this is a huge letdown spot here for the Flyers against the lowly Thrashers. To make matters worst, Nittymaki is a perfect 9-0 vs. Atlanta while Lehtonen is 0-6 SU! My only concern for Philadelphia is their letdown factor, because they will be playing in an empty building, but they'll be facing a team who is riding a 3 game losing streak and ready for a win.

Prediction: Philadelphia 4 Atlanta 3

Carolina vs. Montreal


(5.5) (-185)

Ron's Comment: Montreal looked horrible Saturday night vs. the Ducks and this will be their 2nd game in 8 days, so there's a chance for another stinker performance from Carbo's guys. The Canes are 12-3-0 SU in their last 15 visits to the Bell Centre and Cam Ward is coming off an amazing performance vs. the Islanders. The Canes have won 9 straight games vs. the Habs at the Bell Centre, will it be 10 tonight? I think so�

Prediction: Carolina 3 Montreal 1
