The Hockey News Best Bets (with season record):
Ken Campbell, Senior Writer (8-5): Ottawa over Detroit
Ryan Kennedy, Associate Senior Writer (6-7): Rangers over Winnipeg
Adam Proteau, Writer/Columnist (8-5): Rangers over Winnipeg
Rory Boylen, THN.com Post-To-Post Blog Editor (7-6): Rangers over Winnipeg
(Editor’s note: Do’h. I realize now the schedule I gave to the guys to pick the games for this weekend included the Rangers-Winnipeg tilt that takes place Monday. So to get things back on even footing we’ll have Ken take the day off tomorrow. Sorry about that.)
