That was a great night of hockey with lots of close and action packed games. We went 1-2 with the tips last night and 1-1 for the Bodog Divisional Dynasty. We had the Flyers to continue their strong play as of late but they came up short in their 3-2 loss to the Ducks. We also lost when the N.Y Rangers were able to beat their rivals the N.Y Islanders 3-2.
Our win came from the Maple Leafs winning against the Edmonton Oilers. Phil Kessel was outstanding in this one he had 2 goals and 2 assists in Toronto’s 4-0 ass kicking of the Oilers. Also last night their was a big game from Jonathan Toews and the Chicago Blackhawks when they beat the Senators 6-5 in what turned out to be an incredible game. Toews had a hat trick and an assist for a four point night. Andrew Shaw also scored twice.
Tonight we have four games on and it looks like it will be another great night of hockey for us.
Bodog Divisional Dynasty
Last night we went 1 – 1 in the Divisional Dynasty with the Leafs winning with ease and the Islanders losing a close one to the Rangers. Tonight we are going to go with the Calgary Flames. We’ve tipped the Leafs to win this game but looking at the Flames schedule this is the best spot to bet them. Unless you really want to take them on the road at Chicago!
Maple Leafs vs Flames: Maple Leafs To Win
This is the first of 2 meetings between these two teams and they are always fun games to watch ever since the Dion Phaneuf trade.
We like Toronto to come out on top in this one for a couple of reasons. The first being that the destroyed the Oilers last night and that momentum will only carry over to this game. The second being that the Leafs are on fire this season and are currently in first place in the Eastern Conference. And the Third reason is that the Flames have overachieved so far this year. They were destined to be in the basement and they will be once the season wraps up
Bruins vs Penguins: Goal Before 9:30
These 2 teams are considered the powerhouses of the East. This is the first time these two have played this season and there are 3 games between them scheduled. Last season Pittsburgh was able to sweep the Bruins during the regular season only to have Boston get their revenge in the Playoffs when they swept the Penguins in the Eastern Conference Finals.
With the history between these 2 teams and the fact that they are fighting to catch the Leafs (Wow it feels strange to say that) this game has the potential to be a great, intense and high scoring game.
Red Wings vs Canucks: Over 5.5 Goals
This is the first time these two have played this year and also the first time the 2 have played since the Wings moved East. These 2 teams have long been strong contenders in the Western Conference but are currently headed in opposite directions.
The Red Wings are involved in a major slump and need to turn things around quickly and a loss would bring their losing streak to 5 games. The Canucks are looking to close out October on a 5 game winning streak.
No matter who wins this game their should be plenty of goals being scored as both teams are looking to end or extend their streaks.
