Todays predictions and Alexei Cherepanov

Along with the rest of the hockey world, I am completely shell shocked by the death of Alexei Cherepanov.  Quite literally, I don’t know what to say other than my heart goes out to his family and to the Rangers organization.  My only memory of Cherepanov was a vicious hit that was delivered upon him by Brandon Sutter in a World Juniors game.  I can’t believe what has happened today.

Last week, I started sharing the hockey picks that I make at work.  These are just for fun, and I typically make four picks every weekday.  Last week, I made eight picks.  I got six picks correct straight up, and I got one score exactly right.  I make these picks at about 10:00 every morning, and today’s picks included two afternoon games.  Today, I picked:
Detroit to beat Carolina 4-2.  Obviously, I’m hoping for a different outcome
Buffalo to beat Islanders 3-2
Vancouver to beat Washington 3-1
St. Louis to beat Toronto 4-0

St. Louis and Buffalo won their games, but not by the scores that I predicted.  The way I figure it, I should be lucky to nail one pick per month, but I got off to a good start with one nailed on the second day. 

Canes debut the black sweater tonight.  More on that in a few minutes
