Well that’s more like it! Last night we had a perfect 3-0 night.
The first tip of the night was the Stars to win in regulation against the Hurricanes. This turned out to be far closer than I had thought. The Stars jumped out to a 4-0 lead after the first, they traded goals in the 2nd and then in the 3rd the Canes scored 4 straight to tie the game at 5 with just over 6 minutes left. A late penalty gave the Stars a final minute powerplay and with 19 seconds left Sharp scored to give the Stars the 6-5 lead and win.
The second tip was the Islanders to beat the Flyers and this was yet another close game. This game needed a shootout to be decided but it was the Isles coming away with the 4-3 win.
The third and final tip was the Blues to beat the Coyotes in regulation. The Blues were down 1-0 heading into the 2nd but they scored 2 goals in both the 2nd and 3rd and held the Coyotes scoreless the rest of the way to pick up the 4-1 win.
The Hawks beat the Preds 4-1 and Kane scored an empty net goal to extend his point streak to a franchise record 23rd game. The goal was his 600th career point. As a Hawks fan this is fun to watch but he has a long way to go to catch Wayne Gretzky and his NHL record for point streak at 51 games.
A bit slower night with only 4 games but let’s start a winning streak with the NHL Betting Tips for Wednesday, December 9th
Penguins vs Avalanche Betting Tips:
Pascal Dupuis has had to call it a career. After tearing his ACL in December of 2013, he developed blood clots in his lungs and had been taking blood thinners ever since. There comes a time where you need to start worrying about your life after hockey and for Dupuis that time is now.
While the loss of one of their forwards is going to hurt, they’re supposed to get their best defensemen back tonight when Kris Letang returns.
He’s going to give them a much needed boost and the Pens need that to snap their 2 game losing streak.
The Avs are playing great hockey at the moment winning 3 of the 4 games played in December.
I can’t see the Pens losing a 3rd in a row and the return of Letang is only going to help them. The have had success against the Avs going 7-3 over their last 10 games against them.
Rangers vs Canucks Betting Tips:
These two teams are in the top half of the league in goals per game so offense isn’t a problem.
Both teams are coming off of wins which will give them some confidence after struggling in the games before it. They’ll both be looking to start winning streaks so this should be a good close game as it is most times when they play each other.
