A 1-2 night last night. We had the Flames in regulation and they dominated the Sabres, winning 4-1 in a big way. It did take the Flames until the 3rd period to do it which was a little nerve wracking, but nice to see.
We had the Jets last night, but they blew their lead TWICE against the Penguins in an annoying one. Pittsburgh were just really, really up for that game despite missing some key players.
We also had Rangers vs Islanders to go Over 5.5 but that was based on expecting the Rangers to actually put up a fight. They let the Islanders walk all over them and that one was very disappointing.
3 games tonight – perfect time for some daily fantasy hockey.
Leafs vs Devils Betting Tips:
Going to go with the Devils to win here because it’s the Leafs. Simple as that. Also Leafs have not showed much fight in them in their last 8 million games, so going to go for the higher value Devils in Regulation.
Capitals vs Penguins Betting Tips
This is an iffy one – I liked the Capitals to pick up their 2nd W of the season over the Penguins, but I’m now being convinced otherwise.
Crosby will most likely be back for the Penguins. Fleury should be in net. Capitals looked sloppy and frantic last night, while Penguins are coming off a very solid win and have momentum on their side.
Capitals back to back record is horrific this season with a 1-6-1 record.
But I’m going to stick with my gut on this one and take the Capitals to win at 1.80 odds.
Blackhawks vs Kings Betting Tips:
First time both teams are playing since the all star break. They’ve played once already this season, with the Blackhawks defeating the Kings 4-1.
Going to be a tight one, but the Blackhawks are the better team here based on how both teams have played this season, and when you’re getting almost even money on them you have to go with them home or away.
