It’s hard to belive that there is only around 15 games left for each team. Seems like it was just yesterday that the season started.
The Capitals beat the Bruins 2-1 in OT and with the win they are the first team to hit 100 points on the year.
Huge win last night for the Flyers. They beat the Blue Jackets 6-0 and with the win they climbed within 3 points of the Penguins for the 8th and final place in the East playoff picture.
Speaking of the Penguins, they lost to the Flames 4-2. It’s a crucial time of year for them and to lose to a team that has struggled like the Flames it hurts their chances. If they had won they would have jumped Detroit in the standings and been 1 point behind the Islanders for 6th place. It just shows you how close the teams are at the bottom of the East.
A nice night of hockey for us with 6 games.
Penguins vs Devils Betting Tips:
The Penguins are coming off of the loss last night so they will need to pick up the win in this one with the teams behind them gaining ground. This is a crucial time for Pittsburgh and they’ll need any and all points they can get.
But the Devils will be without Cory Schneider so this will only help the Penguins. New Jersey is having a rough go while they try to catch the teams ahead of them going 3-7 over their last 10
I would like to take the Pens in regulation but their recent play when on the road has me liking them for the win including OT instead.
Islanders vs Rangers Betting Tips:
Any time these teams play each other it’s a good one. They are currently in 2nd and 3rd place in the Metro Division but they both have a ways to go to catch the divison and league leading Capitals.
These teams can score goals. The Islanders are ranked 7th with 2.81 and the Rangers with 2.78 in goals per game. Over their last 10 meetings they have averaged 5.30 goals. I like this one to be a high scoring game as all signs point to that happening.
Oilers vs Jets Betting Tips:
Two of the worst teams in the West in this one.
Over their last 10 meetings they have averaged 6.20 goals. And their goals against per game is at the bottom of the league too ranking 26th and 25th.
With nothing to gain or lose, both teams getting hit hard by injuries and a history of high scoring games I like this one to go over.
