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

    I dont really understand how the Kings still have a change to go the playoffs ? Preds are 10 points ahead and Kings have 5 games left. They’re 0% changes

    • Graeme (BetNHL.ca)

      They go through if Predators lose their remaining games in regulation and Kings win all of theirs.

      • Tomislav Štefanac

        I think its worth to try Nashville ML and Islanders in regulation.

  • Matthew

    I will take Hawks reg as they are playing at home and had a rest yesterday while Bruins played a game and then had to travel, Chicago won 2 in a row against top team(Pens, Jackets), Khudobin in net(+5,5 also a possibility), Bruins 3rd game in 4 days

  • Martin

    Any reason you don’t back Islanders? Seems like your bets over the last few rounds have been based on the teams who need to win. Islanders certainly have to win a game against the Sabres, if they want to be a play offs team.

    • Graeme (BetNHL.ca)

      Yup that’s the main thing we look at when we do the tips at the moment; whether a team needs the win, and then whether we believe they can go through. We do look at the other games but to be honest I’ve been a bit chicken about them. The other day Scott loved Rangers/Penguins to go over for example but I chickened out of that one.

      Islanders we just don’t have the full confidence in. They’ve lost a couple of crucial games. However re-looking at the odds, I’d say they’re worth a bet most likely at that price.

      • Martin

        Thank you for the answer! Yeah it mainly comes down to the odds for me. Islanders haven’t impressed me by any means. But I have to back them at that odds, and given the circumstances. I believe we will see some determination from the Islanders, it is about time.

        • Steve Dimase

          Tavares is out!!

  • Petri Kontiola

    I like Bruins, Blues, BlueJackets and Hurricanes ML.

  • Fruitloops

    • Anders Brucker

  • John Uduak

  • Anders Brucker

    ST. LOUIS BLUES – NASHVILLE PREDATORS : X

    Giving Avalance 1st period @ 4.90 a shot.

    Wild coming off of a B2B and they haven’t had the best starts lately. Colorado on the other hand played their best game of the season against the Blues and they should, in a long time, have some fun right now.

    And the Avs are still the worst team in the league, so to me it’s pretty likely the Wild think it’s going to be easy. Unless Dubnyk turns it around completely, the Avs can definitely capitalize. And they always seem to play the Wild well.

    • Arto Reinikainen

      Also Canucks, Flames and Capitals to win

      Im also going for Flyers 1st period, but then looking to bet on the Rangers for a comeback win.

    • I am also with Avs and grabbing your 1P play! GL to us!

      • Arto Reinikainen

        Well, that didn’t work out lol

        • Lol. It’s the Avs…

          • Arto Reinikainen

            Yup. I guess there’s a reason that team is the worst in modern history.

  • NHL Daily Tips

    Tonights picks will be:

    Bolts in reg
    Yotes TT under 2.5 and Kings -1.5 PL

    Thoughts?

    GLTA!

  • Avs ML @ 3.56 & small one in -PL @ 8.02! Adding Avs 1P ML @ 3.08 (@artoreinikainen courtesy)

    GLTA

    Just the worst picks on this site. Continuously posting 0-2 1-1 night is not helpful it’s the opposite.
