It was an 0-2 night last night with the tips unfortunately, as two contenders for the playoffs didn’t show up. We had Over 5.5 goals in both.

There’s no question that the Bruins deserve to be a playoff team – and I’m probably blindly betthmg them in round 1- but after 5 wins in their last 6 including a 6-3 win over Boston, we thought Tampa would make a go of it. Unfortunately Boston shut them out 4-0 in a dominant victory for the Bruins.

The Bruins look damn good as they deservedly won themselves a playoff spot.

The Leafs also struggled at home to the Capitals. I must admit I was pretty happy to hear that Grubauer was in net but it didn’t matter. The Capitals got a big win over the Leafs in a similar dominant fashion and you have to wonder how that’s going to affect the Leafs confidence going forward.

For the golf fans, my Masters 2017 Betting Tips are up.

Tonight we’ve got just the two games. The Montreal Canadiens visit Buffalo, and the New York Rangers take on the Washington Capitals. The Habs have clinched the Atlantic Division. We recommended at the start of the season that you bet that due to the odds, so hopefully you got on that for the 9.00 price.

Capitals were our #1 pick to win the Metropolitan Division and we’ll be rooting them on tonight.

We’re staying away from the Habs game tonight. Weber is out and having clinched the Atlantic it’s possible Montreal will take their foot off the gas. Buffalo coming off that loss will play strong and the odds make it not worth a bet.

Capitals vs Rangers Betting Tips:

This is one where we both couldn’t agree but felt passionate about our picks so have decided to offer separate opinions tonight.

Graeme: I like the Capitals to win in regulation. This is a big game for them as if they win they can take the President’s Trophy. On top of that, they looked absolutely fantastic last night against the Leafs. They played an amazing game and I have to think that form will pull over into tonight. Rangers are missing a few players tonight such as Nash, Zuccarello and McDonagh.

Scott: I like the Over 5.5 in this game. You’ve got two of the highest scoring teams in the league. The Rangers won’t make it easy for them – even when they lost 3 games they were all high scoring battles. Rangers will be up for this one tonight.
