Monday Night's Small Preview

Tonight's Games

A high-scoring affair in Game One should have made for a good preview of Game Two in the Flyers/Bruins series, which goes as the early game tonight.  With nine goals and an overtime period under their belts, both teams should be ready to make good on whatever picks are left in play in the hockey pool tonight.

Leading the points after Game One in this series are Mike Richards of the Flyers and Dennis Wideman of the Bruins, who each had 3 points.  Richards was taken once and Wideman was taken eight times, so there is at least one person capitalizing on some points early on in this series.

In the later game of the evening, the Canucks will try to sneak a second game out of Chicago before heading home against the Blackhawks, who were fairly unmotivated in the 1st and 2nd period of Game One in this series.  The Blackhawks don't want to go back to Vancouver being down 2-0 in the series, so there is some expectations of a big game from the home team tonight.

It was all Canucks in Game One, with Mason Raymond leading the pack out of the gates with 3 points in the pool.  Raymond has six admirers in the pool this year, so those guys are hoping that he keeps his scoring touch for the remainder of this series, since he didn't have much of one against the Kings in round one.
