Blog Picks (5-4-1)


Let’s dive into the NHL drama and see what’s cooking in the nation’s capital. With the newly-minted coach, Spencer Carbery, at the helm, we’re all eagerly waiting to see if he’s going to be a miracle worker. But you can’t help but get a little giddy when you think about the Capitals’ all-star lineup. We’re talking about Nicklas Backstrom, John Carlson, Max Pacioretty, Tom Wilson, and the great Alex Ovechkin, all raring to go. Last season was like a horror show with injuries sidelining the Caps, so having this dream team back in action is pure gold.

Oh, and let’s not forget Darcy Kuemper, who’s got a shiny Stanley Cup in his trophy case from just two seasons ago. He’s the goalie you want guarding the net.

Now, on the other side of the rink, the Penguins didn’t exactly light the world on fire in their opening game, taking a tumble to the underdog Blackhawks. It’s got you thinking, has Father Time finally caught up with Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, and the rest of the wise old Penguins?

The play here is clear – put your money on the Caps’ Money Line. It’s like betting on a winning horse at the races, and this time, the jockeys are Backstrom, Carlson, Ovechkin, and the gang!
