All-Star week and Reilly Smith is heating up

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

Weekly NHL Forecaster 1/23 - 1/29 -€” All-Star Week!!

Below is the average of ‘CORSI For per 60 minutes' on the Home team and Away team to tell me if this is going to be a shot filled matchup. The graph below is sorted from the most offensively oriented games to the least offensively oriented. To put it in a nutshell, if you want goals scored -€” look at the top teams, if you want to see where your goalie will be seeing few shots and have the best opportunity look to the bottom. Updated as of 12/28/2016

Ten Notes:
1. LA Kings. Three games on the east coast against average opponents, NJ might be easy but I venture by that Carolina matchup they are close to gassed.

2. Calgary Flames. Three east coast games against fellow country rivals. I'm not bullish on any Flame player this week.

3. Winnipeg Jets. Three difficult opponents in Anaheim, San Jose and Chicago, AVOID.

4. Columbus Blue Jackets. They are on the road vs. New York and Nashville which on paper looks nice but it's anything but, Islanders are warming up as is Nashville.

5. Florida Panthers. Arizona and Tampa Bay are a combined 5-13-1 over their last collective 20 games. Reilly Smith (RW) 11% owned and Jason Demers (D) 12% owned are both playing very well lately.

6. Philadelphia Flyers. They face off against NYR and Toronto who are a combined 13-6-1 over their last collective 20 games. Toss in the fact that the Flyers are 2-6-1 over their last 10.

7. Pittsburgh Penguins. Same situation. Have to play the stars but rough week away vs. Washington and Ottawa.

8. St. Louis Blues. Another tough week for them as they play Pittsburgh and Minnesota on the road.

9. Vancouver Canucks. Not often I can say go all in on the Canucks as they face the worst possible two teams in the NHL this week (since they can't face themselves).

10. Carolina Hurricanes. Washington and LA, no thank you, low scoring games there.
