Crazy night of action last night not only in the NHL but also in the NFL.  That Packers – Cardinals game was unreal!!

The Rangers – Flyers game needed a shootout to be decided and it was the Rangers coming away with the 3-2 win.  The Sabres scored 4 unanswered goals and they beat the Caps 4-1.  The Leafs and Bruins were tied at 2 but with less than a minute left in the game the Bruins scored and held on for the 3-2 win.  The Battle of Alberta was a great game as always and it was the Oilers winning 2-1 in a shootout.

We have another solid night of action tonight with 7 games and there is some big games taking place.  The Kings and Ducks should be a good game as they are neighbors.  The Battle of Florida when the Panthers are in Tampa, the Rangers vs Caps is a great rivalry and the Habs and Hawks play again.

Panthers vs Lightning Betting Tips:

After winning 12 straight, the Panthers are now on a 2 game losing skid.  The Lightning are riding a 4 game win streak into this game.

They have played twice already this season and the Panthers won both.  But with the way things have changed of late you have to like the Lightnings chances in this one.

But these are always good games so I can’t pull the trigger on the Bolts win.  I do like there to be goals in this game so I’ll take the Over.

Over 5

Rangers vs Capitals Betting Tips:

Both teams played last night, the Rangers won in a shootout and the Caps got their asses kicked by the Sabres.

With both playing last night it looks as though they’ll be going with their backups in this one.

Both teams have high powered offenses with the Rangers ranked #5 and the Caps #2 in goals per game and backups getting the start, this game has the potential to be high scoring.

Over 5

Canadiens vs Blackhawks Betting Tips:

These teams are going in opposite directions.

As has been the case since Carey Price went down to injury, the Habs are 3-6-1 over their last 10 and ride a 3 game losing streak into this one.  The Hawks are playing like the Hawks they are 10-0 and are now in 1st place in the West.

With Condon going last night it looks like Scrivens will get the start tonight. 

The Hawks are at home against a backup.  I have to take them in this one.
