Well we had another tough night last night.
The Penguins beat the Flyers 4-1. Bizarre situation when Letang scores what looks like a good goal, to have the goal go under review, have the refs call it no goal and then moments later they decide it was a good goal. But either way it was a win for the Pens who distanced themselves for the Flyers in the standings and are now in 5th place.
Huge win for the Red Wings last night. They beat the Panthers 5-3 and remain in 8th place in the East with 83 points, 3 more than the Flyers who have 2 games in hand. I’m not a fan of the Red Wings but I want them to make the playoffs which would be their 25th straight appearance. They are currently at 24 straight which is the longest streak of the 4 major sports. Incredible.
The Sens kept their slim playoff hopes alive with a 5-0 win against Montreal. 3 of their 5 goals were shorthanded.
Alright let’s have a winning night with the NHL Betting Tips for Sunday, March 20th.
Wild vs Blackhawks Betting Tips:
These teams have been evenly matched over their last 10 games where they’re both 5-5.
The last game between these teams was back on February 21st and it was the Wild coming away with the convincing 6-1 win.
The Wild are in 9th place but only 1 point behind the Avalanche.
With the Hawks snapping out of their slump on Friday when they beat the Jets 4-0, I see them putting together a win streak as they try to get back to the top of the Central and West standings.

Capitals vs Penguins Betting Tips:
The Caps are close to securing home ice advantage in the playoffs and the Presidents Trophy should come soon after that. They have 107 points for 1st place in the league and have 3 games in hand over the 2nd place Stars who have 96 points.
The Penguins are in a little better position after yesterday’s win but need to pick up points to better their chances.
The Caps have been solid all year and they look forward to the games against the Penguins. The Pens are without Malkin but have been great over their last 10 going 7-3 and have won 5 straight. Crosby has quietly climbed into 3rd place in points.
Flames vs Canadiens Betting Tips:
The Flames will be giving Niklas Backstrom the start which will be his first start in 14 months. You have to wonder how much rust he will have. He’s a 38 year goalie who hasn’t played in over a year.
The Habs are limping to the end of the year and I’m sure they can’t wait to get this season over with and try to forget what a miserable year it has been for them.
With both teams all but eliminated from the playoffs, I’m going with the team who will be taking on a rusty goalie.
