My change in the daily picks format didn't do as bad for hockey as it did for basketball. I am setting the bar quite low though with 1-1 just being a hair better than 0-2. Vancouver cruised to win outright with their 1.5 goals in hand while Los Angeles and Dallas could only muster four goals to level my record for the day on the ice. There are only three games on tonight's schedule so I will be picking them all. I will be picking two against the spread and using the over/under for the late game. I am a bit wary about Buffalo and Detroit after my abysmal Sunday, but as always I love me some of the Ducks.
