That was an incredible day of hockey and man was it a close night all around as evidence by the number of games that required extra time to be completed.
Well in what is beginning to sound like a broken record, the Blackhawks won, again. After Pat Kane tied the game at 1 with 2:02 left on a powerplay goal in the third, he then went on to score the shootout winner on what may be the slowest shootout goal I have ever seen:
There is only 4 games on tonight: First up is the Devils vs the Leafs, this should be a good close game as these teams are only one point apart in the standings. Next is the Lightning vs the Penguins which will feature both Sidney Crosby and Steven Stamkos, and Malkin is listed as questionable which must have Penguins fans pumped. Ducks vs Coyotes and Predators vs Kings round off the night of games.
Here are my Predictions for Monday March 4th 2013
Predators vs Kings Betting Tip: Predators To Win+138
This seems almost to good to be true. These teams are only separated by a point with the Preds actually having more points then the Kings yet 5Dimes has the odds for a Predators win at +138
This is the third and final meeting between these teams with Nashville aiming for the season sweep. The odds for this seem ridiculous so be sure to get to 5Dimes before they change them
Lightning vs Penguins: A Goal WILL Be Scored Before 9:30
This should be a great game with both teams icing some seriosuly talented players. I think its a safe bet to head to Bet365 and bet this cool betting option. Bet365 has all sorts of cool props and if you haven’t been there yet, make sure to take a look at all they have to offer.
A Goal WILL Be Scored Before 9:30 Of The First Period is a fun way to bet on a game try it and see. The Over Under for this game is 6 goals, so the Sportsbooks all predict this to be a high scoring game. And it’s props like these that are just one of the many reasons why Online Betting is so much better than Proline.
Devils vs Maple Leafs: Leafs To Win
Rounding off our tips is a bet on the only Canadian team playing today the Toronto Maple Leafs. I believe the Leafs Will Win for a few reasons: They are at home, they are playing great hockey this year and the Devils are still without ageless wonder Martin Brodeur.
In his place in goal is Johan Hedberg who has gone 0-3-1 with 14 goals-against in Marty’s absence. This game has the potential to be a blowout for the Leafs and you can see that by the betting odds for it.
The best odds I could find for this were at Bodog at -120 not a great payout but still a decent return can be made. But as you know odds are always changing so it is always a great idea to check our NHL Live Betting Odds to ensure you get the best payout possible.
