We had only the one game yesterday and no tips.

The Leafs were up 2-0 after the 2nd only to have the Jackets score two of their own in the 3rd forcing OT.   Just past the 3 minute mark of the overtime period Panarin scored to give the Jackets the 3-2 win.  I originally had thought about taking the over and it’s a good thing I didn’t as this stayed below. 

A better night of hockey tonight.  There are 7 games scheduled but that all depends on the weather.

Blackhawks vs Senators Betting Tips:

Both of these teams have had some high scoring games of late.  For Chicago they have had games with totals of: 5, 9, 7, 7, 7 and 7.  Ottawa is coming off of games with totals of 9 and 11.

Over the last 10 games between these teams there has been an average of 5.70.

The Hawks are trying to climb out of last place in the Central.  It’s their uncertainty in goal which is giving them headaches.

The Sens are on a rare win streak.  Their 2 game win streak will have them motivated for this game.

Over 5.5 incl OT/SO

Canucks vs Capitals Betting Tips:

The Canucks have lost 4 straight and are 2-10-2 over their last 14 games.  Things aren’t going to get any easier for them in this game.

The Caps are in 1st place in the Metro. They have won 4 in a row and have won their last 9 games straight in Washington and 15 of their last 17 there.

With how these teams are playing at the moment there is no question as to who I think will win this game.  I was looking at -1.5 but it’s the 5-5 record against Vancouver over the last 10 meetings that has me a little worried about that.  But I am confident enough to go with a regulation win.

Hurricanes vs Lightning Betting Tips:

The Canes were playing some great hockey but have come back to earth going 1-2-1 over their last 4.

The Lightning are in 1st place overall in the league.  And now they are returning home after playing their last 5 on the road.

Vasilevskiy had the night off in their last game so he is rested and should get the start in this game and look to improve on his league leading 26 wins.

With the Lightning getting to play at home and a rested Vasilevskiy stating, I like the Bolts chances in this game.

Lightning win in regulation
