It was a 1-2 night last night with the regular tips although the 1st period system got the Penguins winning the 1st period correct – so you were in the black if you bet on that.
The Penguins beat the Capitals 6-2. The Pens jumped into 3rd place with the win. It just shows you how close the standings are in the East when not long ago the Pens were at the bottom. But they can’t feel comfortable yet, they have 88 points but the 8th place Wings have 83.
The Flames beat the Canadiens 4-1. Big game from Flames goalie Backstrom who picked up the win in his first game in over a year. Rust? What rust?
The Avalanche and the Wild both won their games so the Avs have 80 points in 8th place, the Wild have 79 for 9th.
A slower night with only 4 games but 3 of them involve teams in the playoffs.
Flyers vs Islanders Betting Tips:
Should be a good game.
On one side you have the Flyers who are pushing hard to make the playoffs and are currently only 3 points out but have games in hand on the team they are chasing, the Red Wings. On the other you have the Isles who are in 7th place and only 5 points ahead of the Flyers.
The Isles have lost their last 3 games, Halak is out and that’s hurting this team, the Flyers lost their last game but are 7-2-1 over their last 10.
I like the Flyers play of late and when they play a team like the Isles, who are slumping and without their starting goalie, I like their chances to come away with the win. Plus there is decent value for the win.
Panthers vs Rangers Betting Tips:
Both teams come into this game looking to get back into the win column. Both teams are in the playoffs but at this time of year points are still at a premium to better their chances at home ice in the playoffs.
This is the 3rd and final game between these teams after splitting the first 2, this could come down to the goalies.
It looks like the Panthers are going to start Roberto Luongo, who has been terrible when playing at MSG where he has a 3.67 GAA.
Henrik Lundqvist should get the start for the Rangers. He has been fantastic against the Panthers and had won 6 straight against them before losing in January. He also has a 1.91 GAA against Florida.
