Atlanta now hottest item

Oct 31, 2006 12:06 AM

Buffalo’s win streak ended at 10, Atlanta was a dazzling 8-1 and rookie sensation Evgeni Malkin has scored a goal in all five games he’s played for the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Other than that, nothing much going on in the NHL.

We’ll try to find some winners during the course of this week.

Nashville at Edmonton (wed): Tough spot for the Preds playing back-to-back nights in the trip to Western Canada. The Oilers are 6-0-0 at home. Sounds good. EDMONTON.

Tampa Bay at Philly (thurs): Same case with Tampa Bay, off back-to-back games. Meanwhile, the Flyers adjust to life without Bobby Clarke and night off to prepare for Lightning. PHILLY.

Atlanta at Washington: (fri): We’ll ride Hot-lanta and the great 1-2 punch of Marian Hossa and Ilya Kovalchuk, who have combined for 33 points. ATLANTA.
