Ouch. Last night was one of those nights that are painful for us. We finished the night going 1-2 but could have been much different.
We had the Bruins to win but it was the Flames coming away with the 4-3 OT win. Bruins were up 3-1 going into the third but the Flames scored 3 unanswered goals including the one in OT for the win. These loses sting a little more then others knowing that not only did they blow the lead but that a Bruins shot could have, and should have, won it for us
Next we had the Jets in regulation but the Oilers took them into a shootout where the Jets won 5-4.
We did have the Canucks to win and they did beating the Wild 3-2. This was a good back and forth game but the Nucks held on for the win.
The Rangers vs Islanders game was a goal fest with the Rangers winning 6-5. The Kings beat the Lightning 3-2 to keep themselves within reach of the Western wildcard spots.
The Habs Tomas Plekanec scored with 2:30 remaining in the 3rd to give the Canadiens the 1-0 lead. An empty net goal shortly after and the Habs won 2-0 over the Red Wings.
For today we have yet another good and full night of hockey with 7 games. Capitals vs Penguins is always great thanks to the ongoing rivalry between Ovechkin and Crosby, the new look Leafs welcome the Panthers into town, Sharks – Preds should be a good one as should the Stars vs Blues.
Ok let’s have a winning night with the NHL betting tips for Tuesday, February 17th. Due to some time issues I’ll have to keep these short
Capitals vs Penguins Betting Tips
Always fun to watch Sid and Ovie play each other.
These teams played at the end of January and it was the Caps winning 4-0
Pittsburgh is 3rd in the Metro and Washington 4th. This is going to be a good game and I expect there to be lots of goals.
Panthers vs Leafs Betting Tips
Franson and Santorelli are gone and the Leafs are going to soon be moving more players.
I know the Leafs have had a brutal year and will for the rest. But the remaining players are going to go out there and basically audition for another job elsewhere.
Islanders vs Hurricanes Betting Tips
The Isles had their 4 game winning streak snapped last night against the Rangers.
They still lead the Metro and will be looking to get bounce back tonight.
Halak may get the night off since their are in the second half off back-to-back contests and the fact that backup Chad Johnson has won all three of his career starts against the Canes
