Only had one win last night but it was the Oilers win over the Coyotes for 2.76 odds.
But that was a crazy night of hockey and a blast to watch. The Blackhawks scored with 3 seconds remaining in the 3rd to beat the Jackets 4-3. The Montreal Canadiens started the game down 3-0 but came back to score 7 unanswered goals and they destroyed the Ottawa Senators 7-4. Huge game from Max Pacioretty who had 3 goals and 2 assists.
Speaking of Pacioretty, we had him on our team last night at FanDuel and he got us 18 points. At one point we were in 5th thanks to him.
As always a busy Saturday of hockey. 11 games taking place with plenty of teams needing a win for the playoffs. The Flyers – Bruins, Avalanche – Blues, Jets – Leafs, Penguins – Wild the list of amazing games goes on and on.
Let’s get to the tips.
Jets vs Leafs: Leafs in Regulation
The Leafs need this win more than any other win this year. They have decided to start playing some good hockey and thankfully it’s not to late.
The Leafs lost the 1st game vs the Jets 5-4 in OT but things are different now with the Leafs having their backs against the wall. Toronto will be looking to win their third straight.
I really can’t see any other outcome then a Leafs win. They love to make things interesting and this year is no different. The Jackets lost last night to leave the door open so look for the Leafs to squeeze their way in.
Stars vs Lightning: Stars Win
Another team like the Leafs who are on the outside looking in, the Stars need this win. They are 1 point behind the Coyotes for the final playoff spot in the West with 2 games in hand.
This is going to be a great game against a tough Lightning team and could go either way but with the Stars in desperation mode and the play of Tyler Seguin I like their chances in this one.
Red Wings vs Canadiens: Over 5
Both teams played last night, both won but one team exploded for 7 goals while the other only had 3.
With the Line at 5 you gotta like the over. With all the momentum the Habs gained last night it should carry over into tonight. For the Wings they need to win as they are in unfamiliar territory this late in the year and not yet clinched a playoff spot.
Plenty on the line for both teams. With a win tonight Wings coach Mike Babcock would pass Jack Adams for most wins as a Red Wings coach. For the Habs a win would increase their lead over the Lightning for 2nd in the Atlantic and help them to gain home ice advantage in the playoffs.
