The Red Wings scored 3 goals in 2:53 in the 2nd and beat the Lightning 5-1. This was the first road win for the Wings against the Lightning in almost 6 years.

The Capitals beat the Devils 5-4 completing the sweep of their 8 game series this season.   Ovechkin scored on the powerplay in the 2nd which was his 256th career powerplay goal which has him tied for 2nd all-time with Brett Hull and 9 behind Dave Andreychuk for 1st.

The Panthers shutout the Blue Jackets 3-0.  This was the Panthers 6th straight win and moved them into 1st place in the Central Divison.  Mrazek started for the Hurricanes for the first time in 2 months and shutout the Stars 1-0.  He has played in only 5 games this season and has 3 shutouts.

The Coyotes beat the Ducks 3-2 in overtime and the Maple Leafs beat the Flames 4-2.  Matthews scored his league leading 25th of the season.

Flyers vs Bruins

We haven’t had a lot of luck with overs but I’m going with it here.

They have played each other 5 times this season and 4 have gone over.  They are in 4th and 5th in the East Divison but the Flyers are tied with the Rangers and have a game in hand so this is a big game for both teams. The Flyers can’t be the team the lost to the Sabres as their defining moment this season.

Again we haven’t had much luck when backing the overs this season but there is enough data to suggest that this one will go over.

Golden Knights vs Blues

Both teams are in slumps right now.  The Knights have lost 3 in a row and the Blues have dropped their last 6.

They have played each other 4 times this season with the Knights winning 3 of them.  The loss was 5-4 in a shootout at the start of the season.  So it seems like the Knights have the Blues number this year.

On the road the Knights are 10-6, at home the Blues are 4-8-4.

One of the losing streaks is going to end tonight and I see it being the Knights. They have beat them 3 times already and the Blues suck at home.

Over Flyers Bs – Flyers net and defense woes well known. Bs have two AHL goalies going atm and will be pushing for points.

Bs reg

Avs reg – simply too good atm

Yotes TT over 2.5

Jets reg – payback time, especially with Forsberg in net for Sens

Maple Leafs reg – Soupy going for 9th straight victory, which would tie Felix Potvin (’93-94), Jacques Plante (’70-71) & John Ross Roach (’25) for longest win streak in Leafs history. He’s GAA 1.35 SV% .951. Markstrom going for Flames GAA 2.94 SV% .901
