How we did in the first thirteen:
We predicted 8-4-1 and the team sits at 7-4-2. We are pretty pleased with ourselves. Please do not look at the game by game predictions too closely as it greatly diminishes how smart we look. Do however check out the Montreal prediction where we surmised that they would rest Carey Price against us and pay the price for it. 10-0 was way better than we could have ever expected.
Defending NWA. The Jackets are currently 5-2 at home (two wins in OT) and we now wade into divisional play. Let’s make some predictions.
The Next Thirteen:
Not to sound repetitious, but we say 8-4-1 again with losses coming in these games:
Tampa Bay x2
New York Rangers
While I don’t like the idea of dropping two in division games, Washington may be the best team in the NHL and New York is putting the puck on net by the bucket.
I am telling you. We are making the playoffs.
Predicted record after 26 games: 15-8-3 (33 points)
