The race is closer than ever this week with Ian leading 14-12 to my 13 all. We split 7 of the 11 games tonight, so the winner could put themselves in a position to avoid laundry for the week. And boy would it be nice to not have to be the one to wash the clothes.
Tonight the Blackhawks look to continue their win streak against the Blues, and Ian and I both agree that they will. We also agreed that Boston would take the game over Ottawa and the Florida Panthers will take one over the struggling Buffalo Sabres.
After a pitiful showing against the Panthers Tuesday, I think the Penguins will rebound against former teammate Jordan Staal and the Hurricanes, while Ian thinks they’ll have a difficult time handling the Staal brothers.
