Adam went 1-1 and Jon went 0-2 on a light Monday night. A big night of action is ahead with 12 games on the docket, highighted by the Panthers @ Tampa Bay, Dallas @ Nashville, and Montreal @ Pittsburgh. Tomorrow there are only two games, so we won't be picking again until Thursday. While Adam retained home ice, he declined first pick to be able to go second and third. Here are tonight's selections

ADAM (9-5): St. Louis (2nd), Edmonton (3rd), Calgary (5th), Chicago (7th), NY Islanders (9th), New Jersey (12th)

*Goal Scorer Pick - Evgeny Kuznetsov

JON (8-6): Washington (1st), Tampa Bay (4th), Ottawa (6th), Nashville (8th), Minnesota (10th), Montreal (11th)

*Goal Scorer Pick - Filip Forsberg
**Jon is taking San Jose as an upset pick as well


Adam - It's the first installment of the Battle of Florida for me. Like we talked about in yesterday's PTR, both teams are good at the same time (for the first time in both franchises' history), and these two teams should be competing for the Atlantic Division lead all season long. Both the Panthers and Lightning are 2-0, so someone is getting their first loss of the season. - Florida @ Tampa Bay - 7:30PM

Jon - It's the Penguins traveling north of the border to play the Canadiens for me. Pittsburgh is coming off a home loss last night (to Colorado), and is looking to bounce back facing Al Montoya instead of Carey Price. Mike Condon should be getting the start for the Penguins in his return to Montreal since they're on a back-to-back and Marc-Andre Fleury played last night. - Pittsburgh @ Montreal - 7:30PM
