Gather around hockey fans and devoted gamblers, it’s time for our daily meeting before we go off and make some potentially regrettable decisions with our money. Today on the docket: 8 games, sorted into Gold picks, Silver Picks, Bronze Picks, and black lumps of coal.

Let’s see how today’s numbers break down, using the trusty database-recall system.

Saturday’s Sheet:

 – A whole bunch of crazy $#!^ happened yesterday, and I can only hope that today will be more normal.

– I don’t know what I’m gonna do with any of today’s games though.

– I was a bit surprised to see PHX -105, as I thought they’d be about a -125 favorite, but after seeing some numbers, I kind of get it. The Blackhawks are 7-3 this season on zero days rest, and 3-0 when travelling from Pacific Division team to Pacific Division team. The Coyotes, on the other hand, are 1-5 this season when travelling home from a Pacific Division road game, and 2-4 this season on 2 days of rest.

Agree with the Gold pick? Disagree with it? See a betting line on the board that seems wrong? You know what to do (fill up the comment section).
