Quite the night of hockey last night. Let me first say that if you are down 3-0 and you come back to tie it 3-3? YOU DO NOT LOSE THAT GAME! Seriously – you’re on fire, you have momentum and confidence – and then you lose?
We did get a win last night with the Sharks over the Leafs. 3 powerplay goals in that game and it was a good one – nice to see Kessel get a goal at least. Hopefully that’ll get the critics off his back for a bit.

Let’s get on with the NHL Betting Tips for Wednesday, December 4th 2013. Only 3 games on the board tonight.
Flames vs Coyotes: Coyotes To Win
Some solid odds on the Phoenix Coyotes to beat the Flames – 1.74 at http://www.5Dimes.eu for Americans(Need to register to see lines) and and http://www.Bet365.com for everyone else.. These two teams played in October with the Coyotes winning that game 4-2.
After a bad run, Mike Smith had a solid performance against the Oilers last night. He’ll be taking that confidence into tonights game if he plays. It’s possible they keep him fresh for the Canucks game, but even if so Greiss has had a good record in the few games he’s played. 6 different players for the Coyotes scored too which is always a confidence booster.
Flames do have Giordano back apparently and are coming off a nice break and a win over the Kings.
Canadiens vs Devils: Devils to Win
This was a tight game when they played on the 2nd. Habs squeaked out the win but PK Subban was the star with 2 sick stops on the goal line against the Devils. Devils outplayed the Habs in that game.
Tonight Budaj is in goal for the Canadiens. Budaj is very solid – but Price has just been on another level this season. Devils I believe are going with Schneider who has been the better of the two this season.
On top of that, Boucher is starting for the Devils. So much hype around this guy, and that’s going to get the momentum and confidence going.
No picks in the Flyers/Wings game. The over would be appealing except for the fact that Zetterberg is out, and Lecavalier is questionable.
Good luck tonight.
