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: 10 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:

– The absence of Taylor Hall kind of puts a bit of a damper on the gold-picked Edmonton Oilers today. I don’t think either of these teams really care about their places in the standings anymore though, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see plenty of wide-open hockey (and scoring) in this game.

– Anyone on Chicago today? The Blackhawks are clearly the better team in this matchup, but the Cinderella Leafs are making a charge towards the post-season ball.

– There are a lot of good, competitive-looking games today.
