NHL Predictions: February 9

Detroit Red Wings versus New York Islanders

Both clubs are battling in the middle of their divisions and are nearly even (+12 to +11 edge to the Islanders) on the Power Ranking Indicator.  Detroit is “burning hot” while the Islanders are “average”, although both teams are playing nearly .500 hockey over the past ten game. Detroit won the first one as a road dog. I think New York wont lose two in a row to the Red Wings at home, taking this one by a goal.

Los Angeles Kings versus Florida Panthers

The Kings look to push towards the top of the Pacific, while the Panthers battle to stay in the middle in the Atlantic. The Kings, who hold a +15 to +13 edge on the Power Ranking Indicator, won the only meeting this season between the teams. The Panthers are “burning hot” on the Team Strength Oscillator versus “average down” for the Kings. Given this trend and Florida playing at home, I see a win for the Panthers in this one.

Vancouver Canucks versus Carolina Hurricanes

Vacnouver is near the bottom in the Pacific, while the Hurricanes try to battle back to the middle of the pack in the Metropolitan. Vancouver won the first meeting as a home underdog and are 5-5 over the last ten games. Carolina holds a slight +12 to +8 advantage on the Power Ranking Indicator. The edge goes to Carolina strictly due to playing on home ice, so look for the Hurricanes to narrowly come away with the victory.

St. Louis Blues versus Winnipeg Jets

The teams split the first two games in the season series, as the teams battle near the top in the Central Division. Both teams are “average” on the Team Strength Oscillator and the Jets have a slight +27 to +23 edge on the Power Ranking Indicator. Winnipeg has been nearly unbeatable at home, so they will be the favorites. The Blues are tied for seventh in Team Volatility, meaning they are consistently winning as favorites and losing as underdogs. The Jets will win this one by one or two goals.

Pittsburgh Penguins versus Dallas Stars

The Penguins have kicked it into gear, with a “burning hot” status and making a push for the top of the Metropolitan Division. Dallas has also been on fire, “burning hot” and getting back into the thick of things in the Central Division. Not surprisingly the teams are nearly even (+23 to +24) on the Power Ranking Indicator. Pittsburgh has been relatively weak on the road, will be underdogs and are tied for fourth in Team Volatility. Go with the Stars in what could be the best game of the day.

Edmonton Oilers versus Anaheim Ducks

The Oilers won the first meeting between the teams this season. Anaheim has a +16 to +10 advantage on the Power Ranking Indicator, however the Oilers are “average up” versus “average down” on the Team Strength Oscillator. Anaheim has lost their last three entering play Tuesday. They are quite solid at home which should give them the edge in this one. I see the Ducks coming away with the win in a hard fought battle.
