Free NHL Hockey Predictions for Tonight 12-31-16
It was a 1-2 day in free hockey predictions last night. Making our overall record 6-2 this week in free NHL picks. And 2-2 in official hockey predictions. Tonight, December 31st, 2016 here at Pucking Hockey we have one official pick and two free picks.
New York Islanders vs Winnipeg Jets
The Isles finally waived goaltender Jaroslav Halak and it’s predicted that Thomas Greiss will take over. At least for the time being. I am expecting the players to take this as a wake up call and come out skating tonight in Winnipeg. As for the Jets, they are home and have the smallest arena in the league. This place gets loud, especially on Saturday nights. Neither team will take each other lightly tonight, there are two big factors in this game. Emotion from the Islanders and Winnipeg’s fan emotion. Expect a high scoring game, over the posted total of 5.5
This pick is our official NHL prediction. It has a rating and it will be documented.
- OVER 5.5 (+105 odds) (risking $2,000 to profit $2,100)
Columbus Blue Jackets vs Minnesota Wild
Both teams are on major winning streaks, the only active streaks in the league. Both teams are equally matched and as for the winner? Flip a coin. But, as for the game total? I am expecting a low scoring game. Both goaltenders Bobrovsky and Dubnyk are top 3 goaltenders in the NHL. San Jose’s Martin Jones is the best in my opinion. It will be Bob vs Dubnyk tonight and under the posted total. This is not an official pick, it will not be documented nor does it have a rating. It’s for entertaining purposes only.
Vancouver Canucks vs Edmonton Oilers
The Canucks played last night, winning 3-2 in overtime and Edmonton is rested and home. It seems all Canadian based teams play their best hockey on a Saturday night, at home. Vancouver has been a joke so far this season and do not expect them to show much of a defensive game tonight after playing last night. Edmonton should be able to rip them apart. Edmonton wins by 2 or more goals. This is not an official pick, it will not be documented nor does it have a rating. It’s for entertaining purposes only.
