In a high scoring night of hockey, it was a 2-0 night for us as both of our Overs came in with ease.

We had Over 5 goals in the Jackets vs Bruins game and that one hit 5 by the end of the 1st period. Like we said yesterday the Bruins are always a tough matchup for the Jackets and they hammered the net in that game. Bobrovsky did fantastic to keep them at bay as much as he did. We also had the Capitals/Islanders to go over and that had 7 goals as the Islanders ran out 4-3 winners.

Felt bad for the Senators yesterday. I watched the final period of that game and man they just couldn’t squeeze one past Raanta. Hawks fans will be wishing Crawford stayed out longer after a tough home loss to the Jets.

The Wild made it 11 straight wins last night and are now 1 point off the Central lead with 3 games in hand. They were +900 to win before the season begun. Looking good but not as much as the Jackets who were +2000 to win the Metro – the biggest underdogs. We said before the season began in our previews that they had the potential to surprise the league this year – but we didn’t expect them to do so to this extent! Would love to see them keep it going but it’s unchartered territory for them from here on out.

Lightning vs Canadiens Betting Tips:

An interesting match-up. Tampa look to be getting some players back from injury while the Habs are still struggling with injuries and Markov is out for a bit.

Tampa are incredibly inconsistent this season. Not just from a wins/losses standpoint but an offensive standpoint too, and going up against Price is concerning. However it’s not been the best month for the Habs defensively. Their offense can get stopped by certain defensive teams but the way Tampa line up they aren’t that team.

We like this one to go Over 5 incl OT/SO.

Canucks vs Kings Betting Tips:

This is one where when I first looked at it I really liked the Canucks to win. After looking further I still feel that way – I just feel this is a winnable game for them and coming off the break they’ll want it more. The odds are favourable too.

However I find it very hard to back the Canucks at the moment. They’re all over the place as a team and it feels like too much of a risk. I noticed that of all their wins in regulation this season, every one but the Buffalo game has been 5 goals or more. The Kings can play a tight defensive game at times but against the Canucks I don’t think they’ll have too much to worry about. While their road goalscoring is poor the Canucks concede a ridiculous amount at home.

I feel this is a game that both teams will be feeling strongly they can get the win. I’m going to take Over 5 Goals incl OT/SO in this one.

Canada: 1.85 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.
USA: -125 Odds at GT Bets.
