November 4th 2013 Free NHL Picks

We were one goal away from a winner last night as the game ended in 5 goals. Congrats to the Flames and their HUGE win last night against the Blackhawks. Anyone who had the Flames last night more than doubled their money as they were huge underdogs. Reto Berra made his NHL debut last night and what a debut it was! He received the first star of the game and finished the game with a .955 SV%. Reto Berra may just be what the Calgary Flames have been missing. Congrats again to the Flames and Berra on their huge win last night. Moving onto today there are two games on board, and we have one pick:

Detroit Red Wings @ Winnipeg Jets: Red Wings 1.74 BetOnline

The last outing for these two teams was Saturday night, where one emerged victorious and one didn’t. The Detroit Red Wings shut-out the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday, putting 5 goals on the board. The story was quite the opposite for the Jets, as they were handed a 5-1 loss by Chicago in front of a Jets home crowd. The Red Wings victory Saturday night was their third in a row, and they look to go a perfect 4-0 on their road trip with a win tonight in Winnipeg. On one day rest the Red Wings are 5-2, and the Jets are 2-4-1.  Also note that on one day rest after a win, the Red Wings are 4-1.  The Red Wings offense manages to score 2.53 Goals per Game, but take note to the fact that when “away”, the Wings are averaging 3.00 G/G. The Red Wings defense allows 2.40 GA/G, and this number is slightly lower when “away”, at 2.38 GA/G. The Jets score 2.20 G/G, and they allow 2.93 GA/G. When playing at home, the Jets score 2.22 G/G and allow 3.11 GA. These two teams have an identical penalty kill percentage, at 83.6%. The Red Wings excel on the power play though, at 18.8 PP% compared to the Jets power play which is converting only 10.9% of the time. In the last five games for the Winnipeg Jets, they have managed to score only nine goals, which is an average of only 1.8 Goals/Game over their L5 games. The Red Wings have scored the same nine goals in their last two games alone. The Red Wings have a record of 9-4-2 and have gone 6-2 on the road. The Jets have an 5-8-2 record, and have gone 3-5-1 at home. The loss against the Blackhawks Saturday marked the 9th game since the Winnipeg Jets have won in regulation time.
