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: 7 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.

Friday’s Sheet: (goalies updated 12 PM PT)


– Boston Bruins in regulation is probably worth a look, depending on the line. I’d say, anywhere in the -140 range would be okay.

– By the numbers, the system has Anaheim edging out Minnesota by a thin margin, so there’s some decent value there with the plus-money.

– This one might be ‘super-obv’, but Philadelphia and the Over looks pretty good. Of course, the public will end up hammering both of these, so that’s a bad sign. If I’m discipline, I’ll pass, but that’s a big ‘IF’.
