A good night last night with the tips when we finished 2-1.

We had the Stars to bounce back against the Blues and they did winning 3-0. Jaime Benn scored his league leading 23rd goal of the year and added an assist.

We also had Over 5.5 in the Oilers vs Flames game and the Flames won 5-3. The Oilers were up 3-1 halfway through the 2nd but the Flames responded with 4 unanswered goals to pick up the win.  Johnny Gaudreau continued his strong play scoring twice.  The Flames set a franchise record with their 11th straight home win.

The loss of the night was when I had tipped the Blackhawks to win in regulation against the Hurricanes but it was Carolina coming away with the 2-1 win.

The Habs acquired goalie Ben Scrivens from the Oilers for Zack Kassian. It makes you wonder just how long Carey Price will be out.  Either way the Habs need wins and maybe a fresh face in goal will give them the boost they need.

Another good night of NHL action with 6 games.

Capitals vs Sabres Betting Tips:

The Caps are amazing this year.  They’re comfortably in first place in the East with a 10 point lead over the 2nd place Rangers and have the best home record in the league and best road record in the East.

It’s hard to bet against the Caps at this point and when they take on a up and down Sabres team things all point to a Caps win.  They’ll look to extend their best start in franchise history in this one.

Capitals in regulation

Canadiens vs Lightning Betting Tips:

The Habs are in trouble.  They face losing their 7th game in a row for the first time in 20 years.  They have tried to show the world that they are more than a one player team but have had no success.  They tried to address they problem by picking up Scrivens but he can’t fill Price’s skates as very few can.

Stamkos scored twice in their last game so he may be ready to catch fire.  The Lightning are dealing with injuries but are a deep squad.

I like the Lightning to win but I like the Over more.  Sure the Habs are having problems but are long overdue for some offense and more importantly a win.  The Lightning can go off and win this bet by themselves.

Over 5

Rangers vs Predators Betting Tips:

The Rangers come into this game rested as they haven’t played since Tuesday.  They did pick up the win in that game which must have made their Xmas break all the more Merry.

The Preds have had some troubles over their last 10 games going 4-4-2 and head out on the road for most of the next month.

Although New York has also struggled you would have to think the rest is only going to help them.  Plus the odds make this a great value tip too.
