Our thoughts and condolences go out to Erik Karlsson and his wife Melinda today.

They were expecting their first child in April, however it was revealed yesterday that their son had passed. I remember watching their Instagram video with the gender reveal. Erik had used an exploding hockey puck to reveal it and then was just jumping with absolute joy.

Not much else to say but man – life really fucking sucks sometimes.

Let’s move onto tonight. Wednesday, March 21st and 4 games on the board. Pens look to bounce back after a pitiful performance against the Habs. Coyotes and Sabres match up in a battle of the tank, and the Blues and Flames are both at home as they look to fight for the wild card spots. Blues have a good chance but for the Flames they’re crashing hard and a loss tonight will be the final nail in the coffin.

Coyotes vs Sabres Betting Tips:

The price is enough for me to throw a small play on the over.

Sabres concede a lot, Coyotes concede a lot. Both teams with being so crap in recent times have had a couple of good matchups like the 9 goal thriller back in November.

They were both in this same spot this time last year and had another 9 goal thriller as Buffalo won 6-3.

Buffalo should be up for it being at home. Coyotes will probably be up for it wanting to get a W for Tocchet whose mother passed away recently and he actually missed Mondays game. Ekman-Larsson has a reason to score.

The offenses can both disappear so I’m not going full hog but Over 5.5 goals for 0.5u sounds okay to me.

Canada: 2.10 Odds at Bet365.
USA: +110 Odds at Bovada.
Everyone Else: 2.05 Odds at Bet365.

(Odds correct as of 2018/03/21 9:19:24 AM EST but are subject to change.)

Penguins vs Canadiens:

I wrote this all up without clarifying the odds so not an actual tip although I was leaning Pens in regulation.

It was a brutal loss last night for the Pens and they’re not exactly a bounce back team – however I have to like them in this spot.

Whatever the Habs can do at home they’ve been abysmal on the road and are one of the worst road teams in the league.

Carey Price is in net tonight after being out for awhile. Now Price in net really isn’t a big deal these days unfortunately, however his return might inspire the Habs. Plus they might be up for it anyway based on it being the Penguins. DeSmith is in net as well and he’s not exactly inspiring confidence for the Pens.

I actually wrote this up thinking I’d see at least 1.70 odds at some places however the best I am seeing is 1.66. The more I think about it there are enough red flags on it that I just can’t advise it although I’ll personally bet it. I just don’t know if there’s enough value here.
