Crazy night of NHL action last night and after 2 winning nights of tips we came back to wart with a 1-2 night. We won our tip of the Avalanche winning in regulation over the Oilers when the Avs won 4-2.

The Sabres upset the Bruins 4-2, the Flyers beat the Jackets in a goal feat 5-4, the Leafs outlasted the Coyotes 2-1 in a shootout to get back in the win column, the Penguins won against the Wild 5-2 and James Neal was held pointless in his return. All in all it was a great night if hockey.

For tonight we have 5 games and a couple have the potential to be awesome. The Capitals are in Carolina to take on their rival Hurricanes. Battle if New York when the Rangers play host to the Islanders. And what should be the game of the night the Canucks play the Blackhawks. These are always fun games to watch and one that I’ll be recording to watch when I get home but the real task will be avoiding my phone to check the score.

Her are the NHL tips for Friday, December 20th

Canucks vs Blackhawks: Blackhawks To Win

The Hawks come into this game rested having not played since Tuesday and with the exception of their goalie are healthy.

The Canucks come into this game having lost to the Stars last night 4-1 and are with Alex Edler and Alex Burrows

Anytime these two teams meet the game could go either way. The last time they played the Hawks came out on top 2-1 on November 23rd.

The Blackhawks are going to come out swinging in this game and yet and gain as many points as they can to stay atop the league before heading into the Christmas break

Canucks vs Blackhawks: Blackhawks To Score First

As I mentioned above the Hawks are rested, healthy and hungry for points. They will come out swinging and with those crazy Hawk fans behind them they will score first and not look back.

And with the Canucks playing last night and starting Luongo he may be tired which is a bonus for the Hawks and if they decide to give him the night off and go with Eddie Lack then that’s even better.

Panthers vs Jets: Under 5.5

The Panthers have actually playing great as of late. They are on a 5 game winning streak after beating some pretty strong teams; Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal, Washington and Detroit. They have quietly climbed back into the Eastern Conference playoff race and are only 3 points out of 8th.

The Jets, are well, the Jets. They play some decent games only to follow them up with some terrible ones. They have a better record and point total this year than the Panthers but in the much stronger Western Conference they sit 10 points out of 8th.

Expect a nice tight game with the Jets looking to get some revenge over the Panthers after they lost to them 5-2 on December 5th and for the Panthers to try and stretch their winning streak to 6.
