NHL Hockey Picks – 3 NHL Picks For Monday, October 21, 2013


Monday’s NHL action is highlighted by the NHL Picks matchup between the Colorado Avalanche and Pittsburgh Penguins on the NBC Sports Network. The Colorado Avalanche have been the surprise team in the NHL this season while the Pittsburgh Penguins are one of the favorites to win the Stanley Cup this season. It should be a great test for the upstart Colorado Avalanche going against Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins on the road. The game is one of three on the slate for Monday with two other good matchups as the San Jose Sharks visit the Detroit Red Wings while the Los Angeles Kings host the Calgary Flames. Let’s look at all three games and NHL picks.

NHL Hockey PicksColorado Avalanche at Pittsburgh Penguins (NBCSN) – The Colorado Avalanche started the season on fire and had some big wins on the road at Boston and Toronto. This will be their biggest road test yet against the Pittsburgh Penguins. The teams have actually split their last ten meetings overall with six of those ten going over the total. The Colorado Avalanche have dropped their past three in Pittsburgh. I really like the Colorado Avalanche this season but I think this is a tough spot so I will pass on the side and instead play the game over the total at the sportsbook.

San Jose Sharks at Detroit Red Wings

We get another marquee matchup on Monday as the San Jose Sharks visit the Detroit Red Wings. It seems like Detroit is getting the tough games of late as they played the Colorado Avalanche last week. In this series it is the San Jose Sharks who have won six of the last ten. The teams have split their last six meetings in Detroit. I will go under the NHL odds in this one.

Calgary Flames at Los Angeles Kings

This series has been dominated by the Los Angeles Kings who have won 8 of the last 10. 7 of the last 10 have gone under the total. The Los Angeles Kings have won five of the last seven at home in this NHL Picks series with six of the seven going under. I will go with the trends and take the Los Angeles Kings and the under in NHL picks on Monday.
