The Red Wings beat the Devils 1-0. This was the 2nd straight win for Detroit.

The Blues scored the 1st 2 goals, the Sens scored the next 3 including in OT to win 3-2.  Bobby Ryan scored 2 goals and added an assist.

Iginla scored the 600th goal of his career to help the Avalanche pick up the 4-1 win against the Kings.  I hope Iginla can get himself a Stanley Cup before he retires from the league. As a member of team Canada he has won : World Juniors, World Championship, World Cup of Hockey and also has 2 Olympic Golds. He is only the 19th member of the 600 goal club.

The Hurricanes and Oilers were scoreless through 3 periods but Edmonton scored in OT for the 1-0 win.

Domingue made 33 saves as the Coyotes beat the Canucks 3-2.

A nice 8 games for us tonight.

Blackhawks vs Penguins Betting Tips:

This game has so many of the leagues superstars and has the potential to be high scoring.

The Hawks are on a 3 game win streak and the Penguins come into this as winners of their last 2.

Over their last 6 games the Pens are averaging 3.33 goals per game and Crosby looks to be finally coming back to life. He has 5 goals in his last 5 games and 10 points in his last 7.

Most of the Hawks offense comes from the Kane, Anisimov and Panarin line.  They have been unreal and their success has allowed the Hawks and their fans to accept the fact that they had to move some of their big names in the off season.

Panthers vs Sabres Betting Tips:

I can’t bet against the Panthers at the moment.  They have been amazing this season and are the biggest surprise so far this year in my opinion.

They’re 15-3-0 over their last 18 games, have won 9 in a row and 7 home games straight.  Luongo should get the start in this one.  He has beat the Sabres the last 7 times he has faced them including shutting them out the last 3.

Over the last 10 games against Buffalo the Panthers are 8-1-1.

The Sabres are on a 4 game losing skid.  They were expected to have troubles this year and are doing just that.

Panthers Win

Stars vs Rangers Betting Tips:

The Stars are ranked #1 and the Rangers are #4 in goals per game.

The Stars will be looking to snap their losing skid at 2 games and have also lost their last 3 on the road.

The Rangers have had some struggles this season.  They’re 5-11-2 after a 13-1-1 streak  in the 15 games before.

Both teams can score and are looking to snap out of a funk. I like this game to be high scoring.

    My bet for tonight: Wild to win the blue jackets. Nice job guys , greetings from Greece!

  • simon

    ML Bruins, ML Rangers, ML Predators – for me those three games are the top games tonight. I think that the home advantage makes all the difference tonight.

  • magus1349

    Sabres ( no one win forever in NHL ), Habs and Predators.

    • lion

      I think jets may make a surprise today 😉

  • lion

    Here again for tonight picks.

    Yesterday i gave out 5 risky picks and 4 were right.

    Tonight picks.

    Sabres win under 5
    Blackhawks win under 5
    Canadiens win under 4
    Rangers win under 4.5
    Lightning win under 4.5
    Bruins win over 7

    Extra times included.

    Dont put all in one coupon 😊 I advise u pick max 2 or 3. Whatever you win is better than lose 😉

    Good luck!

    • Pepa

      Bruins suck at home and Flames wont make 3 games home lose streak. 🙂 Also think Sabres cant beat Panthers atm, maybe with some luck

      • lion

        Luck is part of the hockey. I ll talk to you later 😉 good luck

        • Pepa

          like i said my friend 🙂

          • lion

            Yes it was. Congratulation my friend!

  • SanDiegoBruins

    My bets today:
    Love, LOVE Caps to beat Bs today. Bs without Marchand and Krejci and in a mid-season funk. Great value here.

    Cats ML – they are so friggin hot right now and won’t take the Sabres lightly. Sabres have Ullmark in goal and he’s not a Vezina candidate.

    Love, LOVE Dallas to beat NYR. Rangers suck and Dallas should be over their NYE hangover. Dallas +1.5 to win and +2.5 to score

    BH/Pens – over is a good call.

    Wild ML – a much better team than CBJ who have a 2nd string goalie between the pipes.

    Habs ML – Gallagher is back and he’s a difference maker. Flyers suck and Habs have confidence after destroying my Bs in the WC. Scrivens is not lights out, but he’s compentent and he played at Cornell, my alma mater.

    Jets/Preds – passing
    Bolts/Flames – passing

    Bonus bet: Big Salami Away goals

  • ET

    Fla/Buf
    All the stats & momentum are in the Panthers favour for the taking;
    They rarely give up the 1st goal while the Sabres have terrible starts…they’ve only scored 15 in the 1st period; Ennis is out & that doesn’t help either;
    *This winning streak is definitely helping the Panthers attendance which has looked minimal at best;
    Dal/NYR
    Stars have lost 2 consecutive games and the media thinks they’re in trouble! I doubt it. NYR are shaky (3-6-1) & Kreider (18pts) is out;
    Stars have a good record of ‘bounce’ back after a loss and in this case 2 which makes them even more motivated to win;
    Between the two, I like the Stars;
    Min/Clb
    Jackets beat the Caps but gave up 4 & beat the Stars and gave up 3; Forsberg will be tested in his young career and the Jackets have some injuries; The Wild have the edge in goaltending & dominated the Panthers & that momentum should help them win this one;
    Wash/Bos
    Holtby has a stellar record (16-0-2) against Bos; They’ve lost 2 but won 3/5; Can’t see them extending that losing streak;
    Bruins are 1/5 and Krejci F (33pts) & Marchand F (26pts) aka the ‘pest’ are big losses; Caps have the definite advantage;

    • SanDiegoBruins

      Pretty much the same as my breakdown. However, I will add Habs ML and BH/Pens over.
