I have no explanation for my lack of aptitude in picking NHL games these days. I haven't had a .500 record in the rink in just under a week. OK I have more excuses than explanation. No trend I see seems to continue once I act on it. Players on hot streaks go incredibly cold once I try to ride their coattails. I just need to keep my nose to the grindstone and I'll figure it out--hopefully. Time constraints kept me from doing game by game analysis.
