NHL Picks Daily Double Saturday 21st December
Game 1: Calgary Flames at Pittsburgh Penguins
Saturday 21st December, cialis 40mg 18:00 (GMT)
The Penguins continue their surge and have recorded just one loss in the last ten games and on home ice they are now unbeaten in their last nine which includes eight victories and a win on penalties, they have now opened up a five point lead at the top of the Eastern Conference.
The Flames sit in thirteenth place in the Western Conference, they have not recorded a win in their last three on the road with them losing twice after the sixty minutes, they have only won once from their last fourteen on the road within the sixty minutes.
From six matches in Pittsburgh the Flames have only come away with one victory and the other five have all gone to the home team and the visitors have only scored four times on their last four visits. The Pens are flying at the moment and I do not see the Flames bring that run to an end.
Game 2: Phoenix Coyotes at Ottawa Senators
Saturday 21st December, 19:00 (GMT)
This is a bit more of a gamble this game, The Senators are currently sitting in twelve place in the Eastern Conference and have lost their last two games and have only won once from their last ten at home within the sixty minutes but in their last five the have won once, won twice after sixty minutes and lost twice so signs of improvement.
The Coyotes comes here have lost on penalties to the Maple Leafs in their last match which makes it three games without a win, on the road they have won once from their last five which leaves them sitting ninth in the Western Conference.
The head-2-head record is the main reason for this selection, the Senators go into this game looking to make it seven consecutive home ice victories against at Coyotes after winning the last six and you have to go back to 1998 to find the last Coyotes victory in Ottawa. Neither are in great form but the Senators have had the upper-hand on home ice in the past and I am predicting the same again today.
