A lot of one sided results and quite a few surprises last night in the NHL.

A motivated Blue Jackets team will be feeling Torts wrath again after the Oilers went to town on them.

This was a surprise as the Oilers have never really showed fire like that this season yet – to bounce back from a low scoring night with a performance like that. It might give them some renewed confidence.

The hard working New Jersey Devils got a big victory over the Kings to stop their winning streak.

Fleury returned for the Knights but the Hurricanes are a good team even if their overall results don’t showcase that and they pulled off the win last night in a shootout.

Quieter night tonight with 4 games on the board and the biggest streaking team on the winning side is the Bruins at 2.

Bruins vs Red Wings Betting Tips:

Fair warning here – there’s nights with only a few games where we don’t really like much and then we end up picking something where we’re not sure if we actually like it that much OR we’re doing it just to have at least one tip.

This is one of those where I’m a bit concerned about that. However it’s hard not to back the Bruins to win when you look into it all. Current performances of both teams, Rasks form, historical data, all the current metrics – I think we’ve got to go with Bruins here. Corsi is a bit tight but that’s the only thing.

I’ve said it here many times though – don’t just blindly trust us. Read other things such as other websites, our comments – look at stats and so on. If we were doing 0.5/1/2 unit betting(which we hopefully will be soon) I’d advise this as a 0.5 unit bet.

Other Game Thoughts:

We’ve been strong backers of over in the Islanders games but there’s a big talk about the goalies in the media leading up to this one. Enough hype surrounding them it’s put me off. Based on their home record, the Islanders over 2.5 team total sounds good but I’m not seeing a good enough price on it.

I’d love to back the Rangers over the Sens but Ottawa have been on the road longer than Christopher Columbus. They’re at home for the next 3 games (Rangers, Habs & Wild) and you just know they’re going to do some damage to at least one of those teams.

I’m still refusing to tip Preds games but I’d probably go with the Canucks to end their losing streak tonight. So do with that information what you will.
