Another 2-1 night last night.

We had the Capitals to beat the Sabres and they won 2-0.  Holtby had a big game making 31 saves for the shutout. With the win the Caps are only 2 points behind the Stars for 1st place in the league with 2 games in hand.

We had over 5 in the Canadiens vs Lightning game.  The Habs picked up the much needed win 4-3 in the shootout.

The loss of the night was the Rangers to pick up the win against the Preds but the Preds won 5-3.  Lundqvist got beat for 5 goals and has allowed 4 or more goals in 7 of his last 13 games. 

There was a comment in the tips yesterday asking about the odds for the tip of the Rangers.  The Odds change throughout the day so the odds I post are what I find at that time and may be different then the ones you see depending on when you look at them.

Another busy night of NHL action with 10 games. 

Stars vs Blue Jackets Betting Tips:

It’s the NHL leading Stars vs the last place Jackets.

Not really much to say about this game.  These teams last played each other on December 15th and it was the Stars winning 5-1. 

The Jackets limp into this game on a 3 game losing streak.  The Stars are 7-2-1 over their last 10.  Not sure who gets the call in this one but the Stars are set in goal with both Lehtonen and Niemi more than  capable.

Stars in regulation

Kings vs Oilers Betting Tips:

The Kings pounded the Canucks 5-0 last night thanks in large part to Tyler Toffoli and his hat trick.  Over the last 10 games against the Oilers the Kings are 8-1-1 and average 4 goals a game.

The Oilers allow 3.07 goals per game which has them ranked 27th.

This is the third meeting between these teams with the Kings winning the first two; 3-2 and 4-3

Over 5

Value Bet: Canadiens vs Panthers:

Canadiens win is the tip for this one.  I’m sure people will think I’m crazy but the value of this makes it worth the risk.

The Panthers are rolling along right now winning 6 in a row and are 7-3 over their last 10.

The Habs have been brutal of late.  But after last night and their hard fought victory against the Lightning you have to think that momentum will help them in this one.

Plus the Habs are going with the recently acquired Ben Scrivens who will make his season debut.  It may be a boost for Montreal who are in desperate need of a goalie who will be consistent.
