Happy New Year to you and your family.

It was a good night last night for us as we went 2-1.

We had the Caps in regulation against the Devils and the Caps scored early and often when they won 6-2.

We had over 5.5 in the Isles vs Jets game and the Isles went over by themselves when they won 6-2

Our loss on the night was the Oilers in regulation against the Canucks but the Canucks won 3-2 in a shootout.

A huge game last night between the Jackets and the Wild.  This was the first time in NHL history that 2 teams had this long of winning streaks played each other.  But it was the Jackets winning their 15th straight game 4-2 snapping the Wilds win streak at 12 games.  The Jackets are first overall in the league with 56 points which is 1 more than the Penguins who have 55 but the Jackets have played 3 less games than the Pens.

A slow day of action today but the Red Wings are in Toronto to play the Maple Leafs at BMO Field for the Centennial Classic.  I won’t be having a tip for this game as I find outdoor games are so unpredictable.  But it will be fun to watch

Senators vs Capitals Betting Tips:

The Sens come into this game on a 2 game losing skid.  The Sens are going to start Mike Condon for the 14th straight time so fatigue may catch up to him.

The Caps beat the Devils yesterday and they held off 9 powerplays in that game and have killed 24 straight.  They play a bunch of hockey over the next 2 weeks so they will need to win while they aren’t exhausted.

I think the Caps are going to get the new year started right by playing some strong hockey and get themselves back to the top of the standings and that starts today.

Flyers vs Ducks Betting Tips:

The Flyers have been having some struggles recently.  They have lost 3 in a row and have been shutout in 2 of those games.  They have lost 5 of their last 6 games.

The Ducks have had their own problems but they have been good at home and have had success against the Flyers.

Over the last 10 games between these teams the Ducks are 9-0-1.

The Flyers haven’t given me a reason to see this game going any other way.
