Well we opened up the month of April going 1-1.

We had the Bruins -1.5 against the Panthers and this wasn’t looking good.  But with less than 2 minutes left the Bruins scored and added an empty net goal to give them the 5-2 win.

We also had the Hurricanes to beat the Stars in regulation but the Stars came away with the 3-0 win.  It wasn’t as bad as it looks on paper as the Stars scored twice into the empty net.

The Leafs picked up a big win against the Red Wings 5-4 and moved into 2nd place in the Atlantic.  The Predators won 3-0 against the Wild to remain 10 points ahead of the Kings for the final West playoff spot.  The Flyers won 3-0 against the Devils and now sit only 6 points out of the playoffs.

Overall it was an awesome day of hockey.

Today we have another day filled with action.  There is 11 games for us and the start times give us over 12 hours of hockey with the first game starting at 12:30pm ET and the last at 10:30pm ET. 

Bruins vs Blackhawks Betting Tips:

The Bruins come into this game on a 4 game win streak and it’s perfect timing for them.  They currently sit in the final playoff spot but are only 4 points ahead of the 9th place Lightning.

The Hawks have clinched the Western Conference.  So do they go easy the rest of the way knowing that they can’t go any higher?

These are always great games between 2 Original 6 teams and I expect it to continue for this one.

The Bruins need the win and the Hawks are too proud of an organization to take a night off.

Coyotes vs Kings Betting Tips:

The Coyotes are eliminated and they players are now playing to show management that they want to be there.

The Kings find themselves in a must win situation.  They can’t lose.  If they do their season is over.

The are on a 2 game win streak and this has to continue if they are to make the postseason.  Even if they win their remaining games they need the Predators to lose.

I expect the Kings to fight until the very end.

Kings -1.5 IF the Predators lose in regulation today
