Well it looks like the Blackhawks are happy with their role of spoiler and will get another chance to continue that role against the Blues on Friday.

We had the Blues to beat Chicago in regulation yesterday but it was the Hawks coming away winners.  They scored twice in the 3rd, the winner with less than 10 seconds left, and won 4-3.  The Blues still sit in 9th place in the West.   With the Blues loss, the Kings clinched a spot.

The Ducks beat the Wild 3-1 and with the win they clinched a playoff spot for the 6th straight year.  Also they jumped into 3rd with the win passing the Kings.

The final game of the night had no playoff implications as both teams are already eliminated but the Sens beat the Sabres 4-2.  The Sabres are now guaranteed 31st place and now have the best odds at winning the Draft lottery.

The playoff picture is becoming more clear.  The East has 3 spots left and 4 teams fighting for those spots.  The West has only one spot left and it’s between the Avalanche and the Blues with the Avs having a 1 point edge.

A much busier night for us with 12 games.

Hurricanes vs Flyers Betting Tips:

The Canes have been eliminated from playoffs so all the pressure in this game is on the Flyers .

The Flyers are in the final wildcard spot but are still trying to stay there with the Panthers making a push to get in.  A win in this game would put the Flyers ahead of the Devils but the Devils also play tonight but they have a much tougher opponent.

With so much on the line and playing at home I  like the Flyers chances in this one.

Bruins vs Panthers Betting Tips:

Oh the drama.

If the Panthers are to make the playoffs they have to be incredible in their remaining three games. So for tonight’s game they get one of the best teams in the league.  Seems easy right?

This is Luongo’s 1000th NHL game joining Brodeur and Roy as the only goalies to hit that number but that story takes a back seat to the playoffs race.

This is the 3rd meeting of these teams this season with the home team winning the first two.

There really isn’t anything else left to say.  This is going to be a great game and one I’ll for sure be watching.  And how great would it be if the Panthers playoff hopes comes down to the game against Boston on Sunday?

Panthers win incl OT/SO – 0.5u

Coyotes vs Canucks Betting Tips:

This will be the end of the Sedin era in Vancouver.  The Canucks final home game and the final time that Henrik and Daniel will be in front of their home fans.

This is one of those games where I have to blindly take the Canucks with so many emotions running high.

I’m not going to go deep into the stats for this game.  I think the Canucks will come together and win this one for the twins and send them off in style.

Canucks win incl OT/SO – 2u 

Canada: 2.00 Odds at Bet365
USA: EVEN Odds at Bovada
Everyone Else: 2.00 Odds at Bet365
