Free NHL Hockey Predictions for Tonight 12-30-16
Another wining day last night in free NHL picks. 2-0 last night making us here at Pucking Hockey 5-0 in free hockey predictions so far this week. And in official picks 2-1 so far this week.
Philadelphia Flyers vs San Jose Sharks
Philly skates into this game ranked 6th overall in scoring, netting on average 3.00 goas per game. Along with being 7th overall in shots fired per game, and 7th on the power play. However, defensively the Flyers are a pathetic 26th in goals allowed.
San Jose Sharks’ starting goaltender Martin Jones is expected to be between the iron tonight. He’s 19-12 so far this season while supporting a solid 2.08 goas against average. And a home record of 10-4 with an amazing 1.65 goals against average. While versus the Flyers in his career Jones is 2-0, 0.97 goals against average
Philly’s offense is lethal and the Sharks defense is capable of keeping pucks in check. But, like the Flyers, the Sharks offense is also lethal. This should be a high scoring game, or at least over the posted total. This prediction is for entertaining purposes only, it will not be documented.
Nashville Predators vs St Louis Blues
Nashville so far this season is 11th overall in scoring, 2.79 goals per game, and 4th in shots fired per game, 32.2 shots per game. Defensively the Predators are barely average ranking 17th, allowing 2.76 goals per game.
Starting goaltender Jake Allen will be in the crease tonight, he’s 16-11 so far this season. But with a rather high goals against average of 2.63 and at home he is 11-3 with a 2.04 goals against average.
Neither team can score much at the moment. St Louis did score 6 goals on the Flyers last time out on the ice, a team with a very bad defense. Both the Predators and Blues are strong defensively and only if Pekka Rinne does not start tonight, this will be a low scoring game. This prediction is for entertaining purposes only, it will not be documented.
Anaheim Ducks vs Vancouver Canucks
Jonathan Bernier is expected to start tonight, but this could change. Refer here for up to date starting goalie information. Bernier is 6-4 on the season with a high 3.08 goals against average. And on the road he is not much better being 3-3 and allowing 3.87 goals per game.
Starting goalie Ryan Miller is 8-11 with a high 2.96 goals against average. At home Miller is 6-5 at home, with a 2.43 goals against average. Neither team understands what a defense is, and both netminders don’t help the situation. This should be a high scoring game, over the posted total. This prediction is for entertaining purposes only, it will not be documented.
