Last night was an off night with only two games, but Jon took home ice for the first team this season with a 5-1 performance on Tuesday night (Adam went 4-2). Patrice Bergeron returns for the Bruins tonight, and there's a Stanley Cup rematch in Pittsburgh with 9 other games on the slate. Jon deferred the first pick to go second and third. Here are tonight's picks

ADAM (13-7): Tampa Bay (1st), Dallas (4th), Calgary (6th), Washington (8th), Pittsburgh (9th)

-Goal Scorer Pick - Corey Perry

JON (13-7): Montreal (2nd), Minnesota (3rd), Boston (5th), St. Louis (7th), Philadelphia (10th)

-Goal Scorer Pick - Zach Parise

*Buffalo-Vancouver went unpicked

Adam - San Jose @ Pittsburgh - 7PM Eastern - It's a Stanley Cup Final rematch at the PPG Paints Arena tonight as the Sharks (3-1-0) play their fourth straight game in the Eastern time zone. Stanley Cup Final rematches the following season aren't always what they're cracked up to be, but because it's early in the season it should have some juice. The Penguins (2-1-1) have lost two in a row (OT to Colorado, shutout in Montreal) and are looking to get back on track. 

Jon - Washington @ Florida - 7:30PM Eastern  - It's a clash of former Southeast Division rivals for me as the Capitals head south to take on the Panthers. Florida gets another test against a tough opponent who is also off to a good start this season (both teams are 2-0-1). Braden Holtby vs Bobby Lu should control this game and keep it low scoring. The Capitals are coming off a 3-0 shutout over the Avalanche.
