It's the first day of February for our Puck 'Em segment, and the guys didn't close out January on a high note. Both guys went 3-4 on the 14 game slate, so Adam retained home ice (although JC gained a game on him in the upset picks). Only 3 games on the slate tonight, so Adam didn't have to pick, but he decided to roll the dice on Braden Holtby as the Caps take on the Bruins at home. Both teams are on a back-to-back with Washington losing to the Islanders in Brooklyn, and Boston beating Tampa Bay. JC took Los Angeles at home against the lowly Avalanche. Both of those teams are also on the back end of a B2B, as Colorado lost to Anaheim and the Kings beat the Coyotes. Minnesota @ Calgary went unpicked.
JC (195-141): Los Angeles (2nd)
Adam (194-142): Washington (1st)
