Saturday's NHL Predictions

2010 NHL Picks and Predictions for Saturday october 9

A nearly full schedule is set for the National Hockey League on Saturday. Here is a look at some marquee matchups for the day.

Bet NHL Odds

One of the most competitive matchups on the day has Phoenix taking on Boston at Noon ET. The public is behind Boston with 72% of the public bets as the two teams play their first game of the season.

Another intriguing matchup features the past two Western Conference champions as the Chicago Blackhawks host the Detroit Red Wings at 8:30PM ET. The Blackhawks are playing at home for the first time since winning the Stanley Cup last season.

Here are my picks for three games on Saturday.

Phoenix Coyotes vs. Boston Bruins, Noon ET

The home team is 9-3-2 in the last 14 games in this series. Phoenix has won just five of its last 10 games to end last season while the Bruins won 7 of its last 9 when it was considered the home team.
