It was another winning night last night thanks to the Coyotes. We went 2-2 with a risky bet on the high value Coyotes and it paid off as they beat the Kings 5-3.

Boy was that a nerve wracking game though. The Kings controlled so much of the game and the Coyotes are just terrible. Mike Smith stepped up big to stop the Kings from coming back and winning.

Rangers/Islanders went over right at the death which was nice, and we had a big disappointment from the Penguins who blew a 2-0 lead and couldn’t win in regulation. Very frustrating. The Stars got the shots on net but it wasn’t enough to beat Kuemper.

It’s a much quieter evening tonight with just 3 games. The Hurricanes return from a bye week to host the Colorado Avalanche. The Penguins hope to carry their momentum from that overtime victory over the Jets as they visit Columbus. And the Panthers and Ducks also play.

No Tips Today in the NHL. Instead I’ll quickly analyze each game:

Hurricanes vs Avalanche: Same rules as last nights Coyotes bet apply for the Avs today with the Hurricanes returning from a bye week. Hell you can get them at 3.30 at some places. Yet unlike yesterday I just can’t pull the trigger and advise the Avs bet. I’ll be betting on it for sure but man I’ve spent about an hour here trying to convince myself to be able to advise you guys to take the Avs and I just can’t do it. Bye week stats be damned – Avalanche winning here would be a massive upset and I can’t get behind it.

Penguins vs Jackets: The bookies except a high scoring game here and the line is at 6. I’m wondering how Pens will be with Crosby now getting the 1,000th point. I haven’t been super impressed with their play lately and I wonder if that affected it and how they’ll come out. They’re taking this game seriously it sounds like but Torts has shown his ability to shut down teams. No tip – I’ll probably bet the Over purely from an entertainment standpoint.

Ducks vs Panthers: I’ve been debating this one all morning and was close to tipping the Over 5 – very close. A large reason for that is the Panthers and their ability to battle at the moment. They’re still eyeing the playoffs and I think they can keep it close. However we’ve got two of the bottom 10 offenses here and the Ducks are very tight at home defensively.
