It was a 1-1 night last night.

We had the Bruins to beat the Buffalo Sabres and they did so after a scary first period. Buffalo came out FLYING and they had so much energy that could have been bad. I have a soft spot for Buffalo and hate the Bruins so I had to admit I enjoyed seeing that. Thankfully the Bruins took back over and won 4-2.

We lost with the Capitals over the Devils. A disappointing performance from the Capitals who I always feel are lacking motivation and drive. It’s like “Oh we’re 1-0 down and short-handed? Okay little flick of the wrist and boom tied it up”. Now back to just relaxing for the rest of the game until something else motivates them or their sheer quality wins out.

We’ve got 4 games today and honestly I’m not feeling very confident about any of them. With 4 games with the over/under at 5 goals, it’s tempting to get on all 4 and from a casual viewing perspective i’ll probably do that. But when I dig into the stats etc – there’s nothing fully selling me so there’s going to be no tips today.

Instead here are our individual thoughts:

Hurricanes vs Hawks: I think it will be a game that is too close to call and will probably bet on the exactly 5 goal line. Scott likes the Blackhawks.

Predators vs Blues: We’re both tempted by the Over 5 especially if Saros is in net for Preds. So many of the Preds preformances lately have seemed so poor it’s just tough to count on them offensively.

Ducks vs Canucks: I like the over 5 while Scott likes the Ducks win.

Sharks/Flyers: I like the Sharks to win but not at the odds. Scott likes it to go over.

As it is I think tonight it will be a nice casual betting night. A few fun bets but nothing too serious.
