It was a 2-1 night for a nice profit last night.
We had Rangers vs Sabres Over 5.5 goals. That one looked in the bank at the end of the 2nd but we needed a late goal from J.T. Miller to put that one over for a nice win at 2.20 odds.
We also had the Nashville Predators to win in regulation. That one was intense and I was scared to go to sleep. If you remember we had a similar bet last week with Preds against the Devils, and I went to sleep thinking it was over. Then woke up the next day and was stunned to see Devils had came back. Well I stayed up to watch the rest and thankfully Smith got the goal and that made it 4-2 and that was it. 2.17 odds for that one.
Our one loss came with the Penguins vs Islanders Over 5.5 goals. That one started off very strong. and with two goals just 13 minutes in it was looking good. Unfortunately only one more goal followed with a very quiet 2nd period with just one power play.
Today is March 9th, and just 6 games on the cards tonight. Some tricky ones but let’s see what we can rustle up….
Leafs vs Islanders Betting Tips:
The Halak injury is a concern for the Islanders for sure. And the Leafs ar concerning at this stage. They’ve lost their last 6 but they’ve had a lot of feisty performances like against the Sabres and the Lightning.
Halak out may be a blessing in disguise however. Islanders will tighten up, and won’t come here feeling overconfident. It’s going to be a good game, but I believe skill will win out and the Islanders will get the win.

Blackhawks vs Blues Betting Tips:
You have the best power play team in the league against one of the best penalty kill teams in the league. Always very interesting to see.
I’ve really liked the Blackhawks since the trade deadline though. Their roster is deep, their offense is fresh and they have the chemistry going for them as well. Blackhawks have looked good against the Blues lately. Blues got back on the winning track against the Hurricanes and beat the Senators and Wild during their road trip – but I think the underdog Blackhawks are more than enough for the win here.
Blackhawks to win.
Predators vs Flames Betting Tips:
Going to bet on the Predators again. With the way they’re playing you’re always waiting for things to turn the other way but everything about them is excellent right now. Flames to their credit have been feisty the last couple of games, but the Predators should be able to get a solid win here with a great defensive performance.
