What an insane night of hockey that was.

We had the LA Kings up 2-0 on the road in Buffalo, only to lose 6-3 to the Sabres who had an amazing 2nd half comeback. Yet that wasn’t even close to the best comeback of the night.

No – that award is saved for the Carolina Hurricanes who were down 5-2 and managed to come back to win 8 freaking 6. Who would have thought Hurricanes vs Canucks would have been such an amazing game. Me and Scott have a running joke about the Canes as I rate them highly while he doesn’t rate them at all. The first thing I said yesterday was “Canes will probably emulate the Penguins and put 7 past the Canucks” as a joke. I can’t believe that actually happened.

The Predators also had their own comeback against the Blues in spectacular fashion. Nice to see them being the ones coming back for once. The Stars blew away the Ducks 6-2 as their offense came to life, and the Blackhawks scraped the win over the Rangers.

Just a crazy night of hockey.

We move onto Wednesday, December 14th with just 4 games on the board. We initially had Flyers but talked ourselves out of it. Other than that Habs game Pickard has been good this season and will have a lot to prove tonight.

Flames vs Lightning Betting Tips:

I’m a bit concerned that neither team has played since Saturday. Long breaks seem to be a bad thing this season – seen so many teams come back and get blown out. The break might revitalize the Lightning and hurt the momentum of the Flames – it’s hard to figure out. However we’re going to take Over 5 goals incl OT/SO. Flames are good at scoring at home but also concede the goals, and Tampa REALLY want this win so they’re going to be pushing as hard as they can. Tampa focused on their defense against the Caps & Canes but were exposed by the Canucks and Penguins. I’m a bit concerned that both teams will come out slow and careful – but I’m backing the urgency to come in as soon as a goal is scored and for this one to go over.

Penguins vs Bruins Betting Tips:

The Bruins are a team that always raise their game against the Penguins. They’re coming off that hard fought confidence boosting win aganst the Habs.

The Penguins are on a fantastic run at the moment but they’ve still got goaltending issues and are going up against Rask. I think this will be a tricky matchup for the Penguins and that the Bruins may pull off the upset.
