Adam stole home ice back with a medicore 3-3 Tuesday night. JC had his first subpar outing of the season with a 2-4 night, but is looking to take home ice back on a ten game Thursday night. Adam kept first pick on a mediocre night of action in terms of the match-ups. 

ADAM (55-47): Anaheim (1st), Edmonton (4th), Boston (6th), Ottawa (8th), San Jose (9th)

JC (63-39): Tampa Bay (2nd), Dallas (3rd), Winnipeg (5th), Florida (7th), Arizona (10th)

ADAM - It would be easy to pick San Jose @ St. Louis in a rematch of last year's Western Conference Finals, but Zach Parise's return to the Minnesota (8-6-1) lineup from a foot injury trumps that. He comes back to play a Boston (10-6-0) team that is looking to wrap up a perfect three game road trip (they've beaten Arizona and Colorado so far). While Parise comes back to the lineup, the Bruins might be without David Pastrnak, who has ten goals on the season. Both teams are struggling to score consistently, and it doesn't look like either team will improve on that tonight. Tuukka Rask (10-1-0) has been lights out for Boston with a .945 save percenatgae and 1.45 GAA. In the other crease, Devan Dubnyk (6-5-1) has gotten off to a great start with three shutouts (tied for the league), a league leading .948 save percentage, and his 1.60 GAA is second to Rask's.

JC - I'll be watching Winnipeg (9-7-2) start their five game road trip in Philadelphia (7-7-3) tonight. The Jets have won four of their last give and seem to have developed some team chemistry in the early part of the season. On the flipside, the Flyers have lost four of their last five and are benching Shayne Gostisbehere for this game (on the same day he was named Philadelphia Athlete of the Year, go figure). This should be a high scoring game with both teams offensive talents on display.
