Well the winning streak came to an end last night as we went 1-2
We had the Sabres to win and the game to go over 4.5 in their game against the Devils. The Sabres did win but it stayed below with the final score being 3-1.
We also tipped the Bruins to win in regulation against the Hurricanes but the Canes came away with the 2-1 shootout win.
The Wild claimed the 8th and final playoff spot in the West despite taking the 3-0 loss to the Sharks. They did this thanks to the Predators beating the Avalanche and eliminating Colorado. The Panthers clinched the Atlantic Division with their 4-1 win against the Habs and the Lightning losing to the Rangers 3-2. But the Lightning also secured a playoff spot thanks to the Bruins loss. The Islanders also clinched a playoff spot with their come from behind win against the Caps.
The playoff picture is almost decided but the final spots in the East are yet to be determined and it’s going to be a crazy finish. The Flyers are in 7th place with 91 points and 78 games played, the Wings are in 8th also with 91 points and 79 games played and the Bruins are in 9th with, you guessed it, 91 points but have played 80 games. The Flyers and Wings play each other tonight.
Only the 3 games on tonight and the only game with any meaning is the Flyers vs Red Wings. And with the way things have been playing out, I’m going to avoid tipping that game as I have no idea who comes out of that one with the win.
Canucks vs Oilers Betting Tips:
This is the last game to be played at Rexall Place. The team moves into their new arena, Rogers Place, next season. The Rexall Place arena has seen some incredible hockey and was home to the Oilers dynasty from the 80’s when they won 4 Stanley Cup’s in 5 years.
This was Gretzky’s home arena when he was putting up those untouchable numbers: 92 goals in the 81-82 season, 163 assists and 215 points in 85-86.
With all the amazing things that have happened here you would have to think that the current version of the Oilers will show up tonight to close the arena down in fashion.
Blue Jackets vs Maple Leafs Betting Tips:
Both teams are long eliminated from the postseason.
The Leafs are without a bunch of the regular players. Kadri is suspended for the rest of the year, Komarov, Michalek, Holland, Lupul and van Riemsdyk are all out with injuries and the Leafs have lost their last 3 games.
The Blue Jackets can guarantee the Leafs will get last place in the East with a win. And in a season when they have had very little to play for, this should be a game where the can at least accomplish something to be happy about.
