Some great hockey happened last night
The Sens beat the Sharks 4-2 and for Ottawa goalie Andrew Hammond he has now won his first 5 games of his NHL career. The Habs blanked the Leafs 4-0, the Devils beat the Jackets 2-0 and Jagr and the Panthers beat the Sabres 5-3.
Hope you’ve all been following Graemes Golf Betting Tips. The European & PGA tours this week aren’t finished yet, but he had a KILLER week in the LPGA. He managed to pick BOTH an 18/1 for the winner, and a 100/1 to finish in the top 5 – she came 2nd. Great return to the LPGA for him and you can check his weekly tips at GolfBettingTips.org – all free.
Also it’s March 1st which means the trade deadline is tomorrow. Some big moves have happened already with plenty more to come. Jagr goes to the Panthers, Fleischmann to the Ducks for Dany Heatley, Sekera goes to the Kings, Tlusty to the Jets and the Leafs traded Clarkson and his ridiculous contract to the Jackets for Horton. Horton isn’t going to play so the Leafs just saved a pile of money.
As a Hawks fan I’m pretty excited about what Stan Bowman has done for us. We are facing a tough road to the playoffs right now with some injuries to some of our best players. Oduya gets hurt so Bowman made a huge move in acquiring Kimmo Timonen. Timonen hasn’t played in a while, 10 months, but even at 39 years old he’s an amazing hockey player who if healthy is going to help them big time. Then they overpaid for Vermette by trading away their first round pick and a good prospect. Just shows that Bowman wants to win now. Vermette will help ease the pain of losing Pat Kane. Although they will need more than just him as Kane has been amazing this year.
Ok on to the NHL tips for Sunday March 1st.
Ducks vs Stars Betting Tips
The Stars are falling. They have lost 5 in a row and now are 9 points out of the West playoffs. But with the teams in front of them they need to be almost perfect for the rest of the season to have a shot.
The Ducks are first in the Pacific, 2nd in the West and have improved their team by picking up Fleischmann. Got to like their chances in this one.
Blues vs Canucks Betting Tips
Both teams come into this game 6-4 over their last 10. They’re both in 2nd place in their respective divisions, Blues Central and Canucks Pacific.
But the Canucks are banged up right now. They are without starting goalie Miller, super pest Burrows and defenseman Tanev, Edler and Bieksa.
That’s it for today. But for the other games: The Caps look like they have an easy game tonight against the depleted Leafs so look for them -1.5.
Lightning vs Panthers should be a good game between Florida rivals but the Panthers played last night so Lightning in regulation
Penguins on a 3 game win streak taking on a tired Jackets team so Penguins win in regulation
And Kings vs Jets where both teams have made moves to help their cause. Over 5
