JC declined to make any picks last night and deferred first pick to Adam today after going 4-2 on Thursday night to Adam's 2-4. It's a thirteen game night in the NHL, so that means one game left unpicked. No one wanted to touch the late game between the inconsistent Flames and Kings in Los Angeles. We'll be making picks for the Sunday games, but they may not be up on here until the late afternoon tomorrow. 

ADAM (39-30): St. Louis (1st), Montreal (4th), Edmonton (6th), Minnesota (8th), Ottawa (10th), Chicago (11th)
*Oilers upset

JC (42-27): Tampa Bay (2nd), Washington (3rd), Toronto (5th), Nashville (7th), Pittsburgh (9th), NY Rangers (12th)

ADAM - I'm going to cheat and pick two games. It's the Stars-Blackhawks back-to-back/home and home games on Saturday and Sunday. I'm a sucker for home-and-homes, and they don't often happen on consecutive nights (both in building named after airlines no less). Both teams are coming off wins as the Stars (4-4-2) got a much needed victory against the Blues and the Hawks (7-3-1) blanked the Avalanche (both on Thursday night). It was Corey Crawford's second shutout of the week. Dallas did well against Chicago last season, going 3-1 and outscoring them 16-7. This will be their first and second meetings of the season.

JC - The game I'll be watching is another Original Six matchup (I'm a sucker for those) between the Rangers and Bruins. It's the unstoppable force (Rangers) versus the immovable object (Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask). Both New York (8-3-0) and Boston (6-4-0) come in to this game on three game winning streaks. The Bruins most recently beat Tampa Bay in a shootout, while the Rangers handed Edmonton their third loss of the season (both on Thursday night). 
NY Rangers @ Boston - Saturday 11/5 - 7PM Eastern - TD Garden
