2013 NHL season win totals 3-pack
All lines courtesy Sports Interaction.
Los Angeles Kings: 25.5 wins - take the over
I can't help but think the Kings are being slightly undervalued with this number. The defending Stanley Cup Champions return virtually the same team that enjoyed that incredible run last spring. Yet, seven other teams are being saddled with higher projected win totals entering the new season. While the Pacific Division doesn't have a true bottom-feeder, it doesn't feature any truly elite teams outside of the Kings either. I expect to see the Sharks take a step back, opening the door for the Kings to pick up a couple of extra victories along the way. Projected win total: 27 games
Calgary Flames: 22.5 wins - take the under
In my first edition of the Power Rankings, I put the Flames in 29th spot, and I don't believe I'm undervaluing them one bit. With Jarome Iginla's health up in the air, and the team's general lack of an identity, I'm not expecting much. Calgary's stars aren't getting any younger, and goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff is no longer considered among the game's elite. The Northwest Division is going to be highly-competitive, with the Wild and Avalanche ready to take a step forward, and I won't be one bit surprised if the Flames are left in the dust. Projected win total: 20 games
Carolina Hurricanes: 21.5 wins - take the over
As far as I'm concerned, there's no true front-runner in the Southeast Division. The Capitals are the favorite to win the division, but I'm confident the 'Canes can hang with Ovie and company. I'm expecting Carolina goaltender Cam Ward to regain his form - he truly is the x-factor, with plenty of talent in front of him. The fact that the 'Canes went out and got Jordan Staal and Alex Semin in the offseason tells me that management is serious about winning in 2013, and both moves should pay immediate dividends. Projected win total: 23 games

Anibal Sanchez (3-6, 6.04 ERA) was shelled for six runs off eight hits in a loss to Philadelphia on Wednesday. Sanchez has given up 40 home runs in his last 204.2 innings of work and has been particularly horrible on the road so far, 1-3 with a 5.59 ERA. The home side counters with Hector Santiago (3-3, 4.58) who was rocked for six runs off five hits and two walks over just two innings in a loss to Texas on Wednesday. So far Santiago has posted a career-worst 7.04 K/9 and 1.80 HR/9. And he has been better on the road (4.00 ERA) than at home (5.68). With these “gas cans” squaring off on Tuesday night, consider a second look at the OVER.
