Morning Gentlemen and Jules
Stupid is as stupid does
I won't even go into my decision making last night. Just review yesterday's Puck Talk and then see my stupid bet. For the time being, I am going to go off the numbers. They are right more than they are wrong.
Freaky Friday? Bigger schedule than normal. Pens are 6-3-1 last 10 vs Swords but the Swords are 2-0-1 last 3. Last 3 in Buffalo, Swords have scored 4, 6, and 4. Flames are 7-2-1 vs BJ's. BJ's have some serious goaltending issues. The last 3 meetings for the Flames vs BJ's, the Flames have avg. 5 GF in those games. The Isles are 7-3 last 10 vs Devils including a 2-1 record the last 3 meetings. Seattle is 8-1-1 on the road this year but has lost the last 2 games played. Caps returning home from a West coast swing. Let's just say the Jets OWN the Hawks. 7-3 last 10 meetings, including 3-0 the last 3. In those 3 meetings, the Jets have avg. 5.67 GF/GM. The last two trips into Chicago, the Jets have scored 7 and 6 goals. Concern for Jets on b2b? They are 2-1 this year so far. Avs have lost 3 in a row and not only that, have looked bad doing it. They are once again a home dog vs the Rangers. Wild are 8-2 vs Oil last 10 (that surprised me), including 3-0 the last 3 meetings. In the last 3 meetings, the Wild have averaged 5.67 GF/GM but that was last year when they were scoring. Last 3 in Edmonton, Wild have scored 7, 4 and 5 goals. I am not even going to mention the B's game. Ducks are 8-2 last 10 vs Sharks, including 3-0 the last 3 meetings. Finally the Festering Flyers go West to Vegas. Eichel is still a ? Vegas should have rebounded from their East coast trip by now.
Remember, Freaky Friday and anything can happen. First thoughts are Swords tt, Isles as a dog, Flames in reg. Over in Edmonton, Jets tt and Over in Anaheim.
Let's just say the Stars organization OWES me and I am not talking about the Dallas team. And I will look to Wrangle a Gull tonight as well.
Off to the course. What do you want to talk about?
