Why Canadiens will fall to the Sabres 

January, 18, 2011

After some not-so-busy Tuesdays during the first half of the season, I'm faced with my second consecutive 10-game slate. I did okay last week, hitting a little more than half of the contests. While I'd always love to be perfect (wouldn't that be cool?), I'm not going to complain.

As I've said on many occasions during the year, there isn't much that separates all 30 teams on a night-to-night basis. I'm thrilled for every one I can get right.

On the whole, it's been a pretty good year. Of course, that can change in the blink of an eye. I'm hoping that it doesn't.

Here are the Hradek NHL selections for another Tuesday night on ice.
