NHL Free Pick of the day by Ron for February 1, 2012

Number Ten

          Recap: Easy win yesterday as Pittsburgh deletes a 4-1 deficit in the third period. In case you missed, Pens tied it with six seconds left and Fleury stones Kessel in a shootout. It might be fair to say that Crosby’s absence was a helping factor in a valiant team effort with some heavily celebrated goals. Crosby did have a tendency to get in the team’s way.

That means we are now in positive profit and also back at a .500 record, going for a winning one. The theory that all teams would be at their best seems accurate now, highlighted by several late comebacks including New Jersey and Nashville. Buffalo was also a highlight as recent media comments by their owner have sparked some hard work.

Will be an interest match up at home against the Rangers for a battle of New York. Obviously Buffalo will look to finally get a streak going while the Rangers will try and recover from a tough loss. We won’t be picking this game but will use a similar mindset.

It’s finally time for us to use the “hunger theory” mentioned in the past. We will also combine it with the back to back road game versus sleeping home team theory for an extra appetite. The game at hand is the Washington Capitals versus the Florida Panthers. This will be the first time we pick the Caps, same as the Pens last night. Almost a flashback of a distant winter classic for our purposes. The Caps faced a tough loss last night against the Lightning. Florida had off on the big day of NHL return. The Caps will be hungry to avoid two consecutive road losses. They were also able to score three goals in last night’s battle, and get their legs under them. With Ovechkin out the team will also be able to spread out the effort against a nostalgic Panther crew. The Panthers will likely be surprised early by Washington, due to the difference in hunger between the two teams. Both teams are battling for first in their division, separated by a single point.

Washington will really be looking to prove worthy of first place ownership and improve on their atrocious road record. Best of luck to us tonight for our tenth game. Hope we will have more correspondence in the future. And of course…Rock on!
