Wow the Leafs are really trying to get to the bottom of the standings and get a better chance at getting the top pick in the upcoming draft. The Oilers scored 4 goals by the halfway point of the first period and never looked back picking up the 4-1 win.
The Lightning beat the Habs 4-2. With the win the Lightning are now tied for first in the Atlantic with Montreal with 93 points but Montreal has a game in hand.
The Caps snuck by the Sabres winning 4-3 in a shootout. They are only 2 points back of the 3rd place Penguins in the Metro
And the Kings won 1-0 over the Coyotes. With the win the Kings jumped the Jets to gain the 8th and final spot in the West standings.
9 games tonight so there will be plenty of movement in the standings.
Sharks vs Jets Betting Tips
These teams sit in 9th and 10th and both are looking to get back into the postseason picture and fast.
This is the third and final game between these two with the Sharks winning the first two.
The Sharks are at the start of a 7 game road trip and this game is so important as the Jets are one of the teams they need to jump to get in.
The Jets need all the points they can get as they’re now one point behind the Kings for 8th.
Senators vs Hurricanes Betting Tips
The Sens are playing out of their mind. They are 11-1-1 over their last 13. They are currently only 5 points behind the Bruins who hold the final wild card spot in the East.
This is the third and final game between these two teams with the Canes winning the first two.
But I have to go with the Sens right now. This is a great story and until I see otherwise I’ll be backing them each time Hammond is in goal. Hammond can tie hall of fame goalie Frank Brimsek’s record for starting his NHL career with 12 straight games allowing fewer then 3 goals.
Canadiens vs Panthers Betting Tips
The Habs took a tough loss last night against the Lightning so will be looking for a nice bounce back game in this one.
For the Panthers their playoff hopes are quickly disappearing and Luongo will miss his 6th straight game.
This is the 3rd of 5 games between these games with them splitting the first two.
I like the Habs in this one.
