NHL Analyst Picks 1/31
By Bart Lopez
The players certainly enjoyed the time off to heal, but it's about time the games started up again. Now is a great time to sign up for an ALL-ACCESS membership. In addition to hockey forecasts, picks, and information on every NHL game, you will also get game previews and analysis for every college basketball, college football, soccer, and NFL game.
The NHL is finally back to regular season games after All-Star weekend, which featured a cool backwards save from Carey Price (although it was much better in concept that in reality). The break gave a lot of players some much needed rest after a first half that was riddled with concussions. The Pittsburgh Penguins’ Sidney Crosby showed some life on Monday, skating with fellow injured teammates Simon Despres and Jordan Staal. There still is no timetable for Crosby’s return, but the on-ice workout brought a sense of optimism.
Tonight there are 13 games, and plenty of good picks to make. Every game has multiple hot trends and two, three, and four star picks. I’ve made two picks for tonight’s NHL action, but you have to be a member to check it out. If you’re already a member, sign in now to read my two cents.
