A frustrating losing night last night.
Losing happens – but sometimes they tease you and that’s what happened last night. We had the Predators to win and Johansen took just 2:35 to get his first goal, and get them off to a winning start. Awesome. Then Avs score twice. But Preds tie it up. Then Avs score again – but Preds tie it up again. And then Avs run away with it in the 3rd period.
Then there was the Oilers. 2-0 up against the Lightning and looking good. Then Tampa score once. Okay no big deal. But then they score twice within a minute and that was all she wrote.
Other than that it was an enjoyable night of hockey. Boston in particular looked really good on the road as they hit the 3,000 win mark. Although much like “who was the 2nd man on the moon” – no-one really cares. Habs achieved that first and that’s all that matters!
Alright it’s Saturday, January 9th,. A lot of hockey today let’s get to it:
Capitals vs Rangers Betting Tips:
I don’t have the stats to back it up – but it always feels like the early games are generally low scoring. Something I’ll have to look into at some point – could just be selective memory.
However I’m hoping that’s not the case today as I’ll be taking Over 5 goals in this one. The two matchups they have had this season have been explosive and the Rangers didn’t seem to miss Kreider in their last game against the Stars.
Both offenses have the ability to really go off and I’ll be backing them to do just that in this game.
Sharks vs Leafs Betting Tips:
The Leafs have been a lot better team lately – and “home ice advantage” isn’t really anything you want to bring up around any San Jose fans considering how poor their team have been at home. Amongst the bottom 5 when it comes to scoring at home – yet they concede on average 3.06 goals per game when playing at the SAP Center.
Despite that – they usually match up well with the Leafs, and I think they have enough value to be worth a play tonight. I actually expected them to be much better favourites. They’re coming off two frustrating losses at home against the Wings and the Jets and I think that spurs them along.
Sharks to win.
