It was quite the night of intense NHL action last night. Two games went to overtime and the Leafs/Wild game was a tight one with the Leafs just pounding the net but not being able to get by Dubs.

Unfortunately it didn’t go as well for the tips. We had the Sharks to win in regulation and they came out of the 3rd period HOT. They hammered the Sens net but just couldn’t get by them and with a minute left the Senators sneaked one home and then got the empty netter to wrap it up.

We weren’t too concerned with Cam Ward yesterday and we were right there with the Ducks putting 5 past him. Unfortunately Gibson let us down as the Carolina Hurricanes offense came to life in a crazy fashion. That was a hell of a game and we saw the fight in the Ducks that we expected after that Flames game. Unfortunately we had them in regulation.

Onto tonight and a big plate of games and hopefully some better luck for us.

Oilers vs Flyers Betting Tips:

I’m hoping this one will go off and will take Over 5.5 Goals 2.00 at Pinny. The Oilers offense on the road is tremendous and although they’re going against Mason and the Flyers at home, the Flyers have been conceding a bit lately. Mason has had some excellent performances but it’s one of those things where his great performances are partially due to the amount of shots he takes on net due to some poor defending.

I can’t see the Oilers having issues getting past him. And at the moment we can really count on the Flyers offense – you have to go back to November 19th for the last time they scored 1 or less goals in a game. Hell they’ve scored 1 or less goals only twice this season and one of those games was against Carey Price.

Over 5.5 Goals incl OT/SO

Lightning vs Canucks Betting Tips:

Have to go with Tampa here. They realized their issue was conceding goals and they’ve tightened up on that part plus they’re getting Callahan and Garrison back and Drouin possibly as well. They’ve figured out their issue now they’ll expand on that and get the offense clicking knowing they have a solid rearguard they can count on.

Lightning to win in Regulation 1.84 at Pinnacle Sports.

Islanders vs Blues Betting Tips:

I’m going to warn you I’ve went over this one about 50 bloody times today. I’ve been debating an Islanders win vs Over 5 all morning. One of the big issues is whether the Blues have the energy tonight after some tough games and on the road here.

Probably after all that Blues will win 2-1 to make me look like an idiot. Anyway I’m taking Over 5 incl OT/Shootout at 1.78 at Pinny in this one. Two above average goalscoring teams who also can’t seem to stop the goals going on.
