++ Tampa Bay @ Minnesota 8 PM NBCSN


Saturday, February 11th

++++ San Jose @ Philadelphia 1 PM NHLN

++++ Vancouver @ Boston 1 PM

+++ NY Islanders @ Ottawa 1 PM - Toughest game to pick. Went with Ottawa because they are way in front of Detroit for second in the atlantic and the Wings would have to pass the NYI to be in play for the wild card spot.
