Very sorry about the delay on these today guys – one of those days where time just slips away from me.
Random story I wanted to quickly mention – I was at the Kingston Frontenacs game a couple of weeks ago where it was the “Teddy Bear Toss”. Basically all the fans have teddy bears, and when the Frontenacs score they chuck them all onto the ice.
Well sure enough the Frontenacs score and the rink gets covered in teddy bears. Only wait – amidst a cloud of teddy bears there’s the referees all talking.
And then 10 minutes later….goal chopped off!
Best part was when the Frontenacs scored a legit goal – one lone teddy bear had been kept and was thrown onto the ice. Just looked so pathetic – I love it.
Lot of interesting days in the NHL lately with a lot of big upsets. Possibly the biggest upset of all was Reimer only conceding ONE goal versus the Wild. Some real twilight zone stuff.
Let’s get to the betting tips for December 4th, 2015:
Flyers vs Devils Betting Tips:
I’m not a huge fan of betting them – but based on what we’ve seen the last couple of games we’ve got to take Philadelphia Flyers to win.
I’m not convinced on the team but the confidence is there. They’ve been improving the last couple of weeks and they’ve had a couple of huge road wins. Everything is looking better – their penalty kill for example.
Devils played last night and are missing Zajac. Schneider will be in net. It’s going to be a tough one but if Flyers play the way they’ve been playing – they can get the win.
Blue Jackets vs Panthers Betting Tips:
It’s been a rough couple of games for the Blue Jackets, but I like them to get back on track with a victory tonight.
Credit to the Panthers – they have been hot lately with some massive road wins but I like what I’ve seen from Torts so far. He’s got the Jackets back on track and I just can’t see them losing 3 in a row.
Florida are a tough team who have forced a lot of overtime games but I think this is a game Jackets can win convincingly and so I’ll personally be taking the extra value. Blue Jackets to win in regulation.
Oilers vs Stars Betting Tips:
I’ll be taking the Dallas Stars to win.
Edmonton are coming off their huge win over the Bruins, while the Stars just played last night. I have my concerns about this game for sure. I don’t think this is going to be an easy game for the Dallas Stars.
But comparing the skill level of the teams – I just have to take the Dallas Stars here. It’s one of those bets where if I make it and I’m wrong – so be it, I’m fine with that. But if I don’t make it and the Stars won? Then I’d be kicking myself all day Saturday.
