There are 8 games tonight and it’s just a huge night of hockey, with a lot of games meaning something.
Flames have Gaudreau back, as they take on Boston. Flames are going into that after a massive 3-2 victory over the Flyers. Bruins go into it having not played since Saturday, and are well rested. Senators fans will be watching that one anxiously, and cheering on the Calgary Flames.
Panthers are missing Luongo for 2 games which is going to hurt.
The Nashville Predators are skidding at the worst time, and it’s possible it will reach 5 games with a feisty New York Islanders team visiting them tonight.
Let’s get to the tips:
Leafs vs Lightning Betting Tips:
We’re going to go with Under 5.5 goals at 1.90 odds in this one.
Leafs last 4 games have all been under 5.5 goals. Lightning also have had a fair amount of games going under recently when at home – 9 in the last 13 games for example.
Tampa should dominate this game – but lately when we see them at home they are not as aggressive and that’s a good thing as that can help the Under. Leafs meanwhile are really just trying to avoid embarrasment at this stage – and if they can steal a win like they did against Florida then great.
Stars vs Panthers Betting Tips:
Panthers go into this one without Luongo and Montoya.
The Stars are a tricky team to really tip at the moment. They really have nothing left to play for, but you can’t count them out as I mean – look at that Islanders result. But contrast that to the Wild game recently where they essentially sat back and let the Wild tee off on them.
I’m battling a flu at the moment and finding it it a bit hard to crunch the numbers and do the studying. Here are some thoughts Scott sent me earlier:
Bruins vs Flames: Flames going with Ramo and traded away a lot of key players, plus Girdano hurt. I like Bruins to crush the Flames.
Wild vs Capitals: If Ovechkin plays I like the over.
Islanders vs Predators: Going to be a battle and I like the over in this one too.
