Not bad if you ask me. For this round of predictions, I am only doing the next 7 games so that my final regular season prediction (we are going to the playoffs baby!) is the last 10 games. Let’s chase that President’s Cup.
Buffalo – The Sabres have dropped their last three. We are at home, Bob is in goal, this one’s not close. Jackets win.
@Buffalo – The Sabres have dropped their last four. We are away, Korpi is in goal, this one is closer, Jackets still win in the home/away back to back series.
@Philadelphia – We beat them in OT the last time we faced them, beat them in regulation this time. Jackets win.
Florida – We are 0-2 against the Panthers this season. I don’t think we get up for this one either. Lose a snoozer at home.
NY Islanders – Islanders are trying to keep Toronto at bay for the wild card. We are 2-1 against them, beating them 6-2, 7-0, and losing 4-2 at their place. Florida loss wakes us up, Jackets win 5-2.
@New Jersey – We just beat New Jersey in two of the most boring games of the season. We do it again in New Jersey.
Toronto – Another team fighting to get into the playoffs in that wild card spot. This one is close for two and Jackets pull away. We are getting into playoff form.
Predicted record: 6-1-0
Let’s Go Jackets!
