Ugh, I just can't get level! I was only able to go 1-1 in yesterday's NHL picks still leaving me two wins from my elusive .500 winning percentage. I did however get to 100 total correct picks in my NHL picking career! Hooray me! So once again, I have selected two games to break even: one spread, one over/under. Before I talk about today's selections, I need to address something. While I've found a new California friend in my NBA picks, Sacramento, I've lost a friend on the ice. The Anaheim Ducks have officially fallen out of favor with me. I know the blame for missed over/unders don't always fall on one team's shoulders. In this instance, I just can't accept consistent failure from one team. You may get back on my good side one day Ducks, but until you stop being more D3 than D2, you won't be. I will be picking one team from yesterday again today though. That will be the Washington Capitals, For the first time however, I will be going under 5.5 goals in their game against the Carolina Hurricanes. For my other pick, scroll down for about .2 seconds. On to the picks!
