Only two games last night.

The Blackhawks beat the Red Wings 5-2.  This game was tied 2-2 after the 2nd but the Hawks went off for 3 in the 3rd.

The Red Wings beat the Sens 2-1 in OT.  This was a good, even game where the Wings outshot the Sens 35-34.  Athanasiou scored both goals for Detroit.

I have to keep these short today.  My daughter is dealing with a bad flu so she is constantly throwing up and my other two kids are, of course, concerned so need to keep them away.  And my mother is in the hospital with a recurring issue

A busy night with 12 games.

Lightning vs Canadiens Betting Tips:

The Lightning are on a 2 game win streak and are 8-2 over their last 10.

The Habs are on a 5 game losing skid and have looked terrible during this stretch scoring only 4 times.

I can’t back Montreal right now against the best team in the league.

Lightning in regulation for 1.95 odds

Panthers vs Bruins Betting Tips:

The Panthers aren’t a great road team this season going 7-11-2 on the road

Boston has been playing some great hockey and have climbed into 2nd place in the Atlantic.   They went 6-1-1 at home in the month of December.  Rask is starting and he is  11-0-1 over his last 12 starts.

Have to go with Boston in this game

Bruins win in regulation for 1.80 odds

Knights vs Blues Betting Tips:

The Knights continue to impress.  They are now on a 8 game win streak and I have to back them until they give me a reason not to.

The Blues are riding a 2 game win streak into this game but are 4-6 over their last 10.

These teams played in October and it was Vegas winning 3-2.

Again I’ll back the Knights until they come back down to earth.

Knights win incl OT/SO for 1.95 odds
