Well that was an interesting day of hockey.  Of the 8 games yesterday, 4 of them needed extra time to be completed. And some goalies had to stand on their heads to pick up wins facing 50 shots.

The Lightning beat the Flyers in what was a crazy game.  The Flyers were up 3-1 after the 1st but the Lightning came back and forced extra time where they won it 6-5 in a shootout.  Stamkos scored twice and added 3 assists and Hedman also scored twice and added 2 assists.

The Capital beat the Maple Leafs 5-2.  This was another outdoor game that was played at the U.S Navy Academy.  Ovechkin scored his 40th goal of the season becoming only the 6th player in NHL history to have at least 9 seasons of that many goals.  He still has time left to hit the 50 goal mark.

The Pens beat the Isles 3-2 in OT, the Bruins won 2-1 in OT against the Habs and the Stars beat the Blues 3-2 also in OT.

There is 7 games for us today.  So let’s get to the tips.

Jets vs Hurricanes Betting Tips:

Both teams are in the playoffs at the moment.  The Jets are chasing the Predators for first place in the Central.  They are currently 6 points back.  The Canes are in the 8th and final wildcard spot in the East.  They’re tied with the Jackets and one point ahead of the  Panthers.

Although the Canes are rallying around Jordan Staal and the terrible events that happened to his family,  the Jets have been an amazing team this season and I have to back them in this one.

Blue Jackets vs Sharks Betting Tips:

These teams have had some high scoring games coming into this one.

The Jackets last 3 games have had totals of 6, 7 and 6.  The Sharks have caught fire offensivly since acquiring Evander Kane at the trade deadline scoring 12 goals in the 2 games since.

With the Over/Under at 5.5, I feel comfortable going with the Over in this one.
