NHL Games of the Weekend; February 1st and 2nd
Saturday February 1st
Flyers @ Kings 4 PM ET
TV: CSN-PHI|FS-W|NHL Network
This game sticks out to me, I am not sure why, but there is just something about it that I like. I think it has something to do with the fact that they both play a physical style but LA is the better team on defense. The Flyer however have a solid offense despite their early season struggles on offense. This game should be a hard hitting game with some solid defense, however don’t be surprised if the Flyers can get something going on offense but they have more speed than LA I believe so it might work out to their advantage if they can get odd man rushes. I’ll predict a 4-3 Flyers win.
Other Saturday Games of note

Blackhawks @ Sharks 10:30 PM ET (CSN-CHI|CSN-CA)
Sunday January 2nd
Red Wings @ Capitals 12:30 PM ET
This game could be very entertaining, though admittedly it doesn’t truly excite me because I am not a huge fan of either team so the incentive for me to watch is lacking. However any time the national fans can watch Pavel Datsyuk and Alex Ovechkin it is always certainly a treat for the fans. The NHL has a huge chance to cash in on a couple stars in this battle. And don’t sleep on Jimmy Howard, he is a stud goalie.
