Well The Blackhawks got back to their winning ways with a win over the suddenly struggling San Jose Sharks, who have yet to win a game in February. It was the return of Ryan Kesler who joined his Vancouver Canucks squad in a very spirited game. Also Henrik Sedin became the Canucks all time leading scorer during this one. The Devils continued to roll with a 5-2 win over the Flyers. Overall a great night of hockey.

A slow night of hockey for a Saturday night, but there is some great games going down. It’s the battle of Ontario tonight as the banged up Ottawa Senators are in Toronto to take on the Maple Leafs which are always awesome games with more than just points on the line. Its also the battle of the Sunshine State as the Tampa Bay Lightning try to snap their 6 game losing skid against the Florida Panthers.

There is 7 games on the docket for tonight and as usual 3 tips for you.Speaking of, lets get to the tips for February 16th

Ducks vs Predators: Ducks To Win

When a team that is in 2nd place in the Western Conference is paying out at +125 at 5Dimes for a win against the 4th place team you really have to consider placing a bet on them.

This may turn out to be a goalie duel, but I think that with the odds for a Anaheim Ducks Win well above even odds it is well worth the risk and I recommend jumping on this before the odds get adjusted to around even odds where it should be.

Lightning vs Panthers: Lightning -1.5 Puck Line

Tampa Bay is struggling right now but with all the talent they have on this team they will snap out of it soon. And why not tonight against their Southeast Division rivals the Florida Panthers. These are always good games for these two teams when they meet and I expect this one to be no different. This is the second time they have played this season with the first game being won by the Lightning 5-2.

So when you bet on the Lighting to win by 2 or more goals at Bodog not only is it a good bet but it pays out AMAZINGLY at +271. How can you go wrong here.

Senators vs Maple Leafs: Over 5.5 Goals

I love when these teams play each other because its not only a game for points its also about pride. And with this being the first of 5 meetings between these teams expect it to be a great back and forth game. And with the Ottawa Senators two best players hurt don’t let that scare you, they showed us last year that they can score goals with a team full of relatively unknown players.

The Maple Leafs always come ready to play when the Sens are in town and are playing the best hockey they have in years. I think the Leafs will win this game but the Sens will defiantly put some goals up on the board. Pinnacle Sports has the Over 5.5 betting odds at -105. So go there, sign up, and bet the over and watch as the goals just keep coming fast and furiously
