It was a 1-1 night last night with the tips.

We had the Over in the Montreal/Tampa game and that went over in a 7 goal thriller. Montreal blew a 3-1 lead against the Lightning.

We had the Canucks/Kings to go over but despite the Kings best attempts, Miller held them at bay and they lost 2-1. That was a kicker as I had said yesterday I liked the Canucks to win that one. But I didn’t expect Miller to have such a incredible performance.

Felt bad for Miller though as that’s 67 games without a shutout. Bet he was already thinking of the champagne when Pearson got that one by him.

Busy night tonight and two tips only. Couple of potential plays we couldn’t pull the trigger on were Habs/Panthers Over 5.5 (just not fully confident in the offenses) and Oilers to win (Kings are a tough test and the odds aren’t good). I also have a feeling the Hawks win today and the Islanders pull off a shock – but not enough to back them up to go with them.

Bruins vs Sabres Betting Tips:

I actually laughed out loud when I heard Bylsma talking about “sweeping the Bruins”. Hey maybe they will and it’s good to think positive but that’s going to be a tough thing to do.

Bruins match up well against the Sabres and are solid and trustworthy on the road. With the poor OT/SO record for Buffalo we’re going to take Bruins to win incl OT/SO if Rask is in net.

Canada: 1.76 Odds at Bet365.
USA: -130 Odds at 5Dimes.
Everyone Else: 1.76 Odds at Bet365.

Capitals vs Devils Betting Tips:

Caps are a tough team for the Devils to match up against and the Devils are extremely poor at the moment. I mean this is one where I probably don’t have to write much about – you can see why we’re taking the Caps in this one. I feel bad watching the Devils – they just don’t seem to have any drive about them. That Penguins 3rd period was really poor it was like they had zero confidence in regard to winning that game. If they can’t bring themselves up I see this being a big win for Washington.

Capitals to win in Regulation.

Canada: 1.72 Odds at 888 Sports.
USA: -129 Odds at 5Dimes.
Everyone Else: 1.72 Odds at 888 Sports.

  • Smoking Barrel

    What about Tampa-Toronto over 5,5?

  • magus1349

    Tonight i like Bolts, Ducks, Kingks and…yes i’m prety sure about Jets.

    • BlueLineBets

      I agree about the Jets tonight. I think this could be the let down spot for the Blue Jackets.

      • SanDiegoBruins

        ;p

      • Johnny Hockey

        I don’t know… since weeks the games could be a let down. But they’re winning and winning and winning ^^

        • No expert predicted any of the 39 points CBJ chased down last season. Now It was a surprise they rose and now it is a surprise that they donยดt fall.

  • Johnny Hockey

    First thougths:

    > Sabres/Bruins OVER 5.0! (if Rask isn’t in net)
    > Caps in reg!
    > What’s if Bibeau will get the start? Tampa to win? Over 5.5?
    > Sens to win!
    > Wild/Isles OVER 5.0! (Value: Isles to win)
    > Stars in reg!
    > Flames/Ducks OVER 5.5?
    > Oilers/Kings OVER 5.0?

    • Henry Del Valle Sr.

      Love your Sabres/Bruins Over selection, especially if Could’veBeen is in net for BOS.

    • Johnny Hockey

      I’m a little bit worried about the Stars…

      • Johnny Hockey

        I really like the OVER in Wild/Islanders

  • Henry Del Valle Sr.

    Ducks
    Caps in reg
    LAKings
    Montreal — only if Price starts.
    Good luck!

    • BlueLineBets

      Montoya is confirmed for the Habs.

      • Henry Del Valle Sr.

        Thank you! OK so let’s scratch the Habs off the list!

    • magus1349

      Oh boy!
      You agree with 2 of my picks. This is something.:)))

      • Henry Del Valle Sr.

        ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Henry Del Valle Sr.

        ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Ben862

      Is the Ducks pick based on revenge against the Flames for the 8-3 game? To me the Ducks Flames and also Oilers Kings games are both 50/50.

  • SanDiegoBruins

    Bruins all the way. They aren’t going to finish this road trip without 2 pts in Buffalo. Bruins ML/reg/total 2.5+

    CBJ all over the Jets tonight. They have the edge everywhere on the ice and Torts has them playing with great confidence. This looks like a lot of value.

    Sens reg – Coreau is in net for Detroit and he’s an AHL goalie. Red Wings defense is one of the worst and they are banged up. Sens are playing well and have a lot of confidence. I like the over as well.

    GLTA

    • Henry Del Valle Sr.

      Is our guy Tuuka in net? I like the B’s but only if it’s Tuuka Time. Boston has dominated Buffalo.

      • SanDiegoBruins

        Haven’t seen confirmation yet, but it’s not a b2b so I wouldn’t see why they’d start anyone other than Tuukka

  • Jens Denmark

    My picks tonight:

    Caps reg.
    Bruins reg.
    Wild reg.
    Sens reg.
    Rangers reg.
    Stars reg.

    GLTA!

    • Ben862

      I like all of these picks

      • Jens Denmark

        4 out of 6 = not bad ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Caesium

    Caps -1.5 @ 2.280 w/ 2 units
    Wild -0.5 @ 1.961 w/ 1 unit
    Stars -0.5 @ 1.884 w/ 1 unit

    December: 11/23 +0.68

    GL to everyone!

  • DawsonArkiri

    MONTREAL-FLORIDE OT
    HAWKS ML

    • DawsonArkiri

      @jens how about that

      • Jens Denmark

        I saw it ๐Ÿ™‚ Nice job again. I had 4/6 reg. picks so also a good night for me ๐Ÿ™‚

  • BlueLineBets

    Senators ML
    Habs/Panthers OT

  • slyNHL

    Hi, my thoughts on tonight for some games…
    Ottawa Detroit – X2
    Edmonton LA – LA to win
    Winnipeg Columbus – over 5 (not sure)
    Minnesota New York Islanders – both teams over 1.5
    ————————————
    Such games as Rangers, Washington and Dallas will go with regulation win of them, but dont want to mention them now. Nothing intresting there…

    • Orhan Cypriot Ugurcag

      You think Rangers win in reg?

      • slyNHL

        Five games losing streak for Arizona. Nothing in last h2h matches against NYR. I just cant say this game will go OT. But actually I do not play such games, where it is something obvious coming… Except tonight Ottawa Detroit game (where I want to play oposite all money flow).
        To conclude :
        85% this game ends with reg win of NYR – other 15% goes to 1X Arizona.

  • Capitals have one game plan. “Leave it to Oveshkin” Sopranos might and very likely, scare them up to one point OT

  • Ottawa 1X

  • Arizona – MSG X2
    NHL
    To win after OT is no defeat in the NHL to favorites valuation from sports commentators. However, if tip commentators could decide so …….
    Therefore, almost all the favorites X hedged.
    Lundqvist replacement Rantaa let 2 of 4 first shots yesterday. “A revenge craving Lundqvist – if he is allowed to stand? – a proven winner formula – want to have heading back down there in the desert. But if it is done in the OT or after -” Hero” headline is pre printed -” whether and always anyone “!! X2! !!!

  • I loved M-sota play style yesterday But just that little extra killer instinct is missing.

  • CBJ was predicted to loose almost unanimously yesterday They shook off the curse. Now they can relax, Maybe too much today?

    • SanDiegoBruins

      They answered that question. I had them to win, but it wasn’t easy

  • lion

    Caps win
    Panthers win
    Lightning win
    Islanders win
    Senators win

    • SanDiegoBruins

      0-5 ๐Ÿ™

      • lion

        Yeah very bad night โ˜น
