A disappointing 0-2 night with the NHL tips as the two big favourites didn’t pan out.
We had the Capitals to win in regulation. A host of defensive errors early on by the Capitals however had Holtby ready to kill someone and the Habs up 3-0. We’ve seen that complacency from the Capitals in their last few games but nothing as bad as that. Will be interesting to see how they bounce back from that and if it’s the wake up call they needed.
It was a thrilling game however with the Capitals chasing the game like crazy and Condon stepped up big time. Even though he let in 3 goals he made some incredible saves and deserves a lot of credit for that win.
We went for the riskier bet of the Ducks -1.5 against the Buffalo Sabres. We weren’t concerned about the Sabres offense. However the Ducks couldn’t get that 2nd goal that was needed.
We’ve got a busier schedule tonight with 10 games on the board. Let’s get to it:
Chicago Blackhawks vs Nashville Predators:
The Blackhawks have been in a bit of a rough patch the last few games and that all came to a head a few days ago against Minnesota when they were absolutely blown away.
They’re now going up against a Predators team who may be without Weber, and who they have dominated in recent times scoring a barrel load of goals against them.
We like the Blackhawks to bounce back today.
Blackhawks to win.
St. Louis Blues vs New York Rangers:
The Blues are in tough, tough shape at the moment with a lot of brutal injuries.
Reaves is also out due to suspension. Brian Elliott is the latest one to be added to the injury list.
We’re surprised by the odds on this one and will gladly take Rangers to win.
New York Islanders vs Calgary Flames:
The Islanders are playing some very good hockey at the moment and have been looking really good. They struggled a bit coming out of the all star break but have really turned things around.
The Flames are in free fall and although they’ve been able to pick up a few wins they’re still looking extremely sloppy out there.
We’re taking Islanders to win this evening.
Dallas Stars vs Winnipeg Jets:
Stars had a great win over the Jets a couple of nights ago in Winnipeg, and we expect more of the same here. The Stars have the 2nd best goals per game at home in the league, going up against Jets team who struggle to score on the road and are fairly leaky themselves.
Stars are in a good spot right now and we like them to dominate this game.
