Why the Red Wings will beat the Sharks 

November, 30, 2010

Clearly, I can't pick games that are played on Wednesday night. Last week, because of an extremely light Tuesday night slate, I ventured into Wednesday's action to have more games to forecast. That didn't turn out to be such a wonderful idea. Then again, things didn't get started all that great on Tuesday, either. My "hunch" play of the Oilers over the Coyotes proved to be a bust, as the Coyotes won 5-0. That was the start of a miserable 2-5 week -- my worst of the season.

Have no fear, though: I'm ready for a bounce-back Tuesday. I've got five games on the card, including a showdown between the Sharks and Wings. Who do I like? You'll have to read on. Here are the Hradek selections for the last day in November 2010.
