Colorado Avalanche (32 pts) @ New Jersey Devils (56 pts)
Brendan: Devils win 3-1.
Tyler: This game is tough to pick, as the Devils are the second worse record at home, but Colorado is just plain bad. Devils win 3-2.
Vancouver Canucks (56 pts) @ Pittsburgh Penguins (75 pts)
Brendan: Penguins win 5-1.
Tyler: The Penguins just lost to the Coyotes, but they are a different team at home. Penguins win 4-1.
New York Islanders (60 pts) @ Toronto Maple Leafs (61 pts)
Brendan: Maple Leafs win 3-2.
Tyler: This game is an even battle, as just one point separates these two teams in the standings, and they have similar offensive and defensive numbers. The only difference in this matchup is the Islanders terrible road record. Maple Leafs win 3-1.
Buffalo Sabres (56 pts) @ Ottawa Senators (64 pts)
Brendan: Senators win 3-1.
Tyler: Ottawa is 1-3 against Buffalo this season, and have lost both games at home so far. Sabres win 3-2.
Anaheim Ducks (68 pts) @ Minnesota Wild (80 pts)
Brendan: Wild win 4-2.
Tyler: The Wild have defeated the Ducks both times they have played this season, and the Ducks have a .500 winning percentage this season against the Central Division. Wild win 3-1.
Dallas Stars (54 pts) @ Winnipeg Jets (54 pts)
Brendan: Jets win 4-3.
Tyler: DEFENSE *CLAP CLAP* DEFENSE… is something that won’t be seen in this game. The Jets allow the most goals in the NHL, while the Stars allow the second most (my luck this game will be 1-0). The Jets are 3-1 against the Stars this season as well. Jets win 5-4.
Arizona Coyotes (45 pts) @ Edmonton Oilers (66 pts)
Brendan: Oilers win 3-2.
Tyler: The Coyotes are on a roll, winning two straight and three of their last four. The Oilers and Coyotes season series is tied, but the Coyotes are on a back-to-back. Oilers win 3-2.
