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.

Wednesday’s Sheet:


– Here’s a quick breakdown of the logic behind today’s picks:

– Detroit has just spent about 10 days on the road, so they’re kind of ripe for the picking.

– Dallas has had all kinds of trouble against Calgary this season, averaging just 20 SOG per game in 3 meetings.

– Despite what happened in Florida last night, Chicago still appears to be a more complete team than Tampa Bay at the moment.
