I had two tips from the same game yesterday and lost one and had a push with the other.

I had the Oilers to win and the game to go over 6. The Canucks won 4-2. The Oilers scored 1st in the game to open up the 2nd period but the Canucks answered with 3 of their own in their way to the win.

The Lightning and Jets had a great back and forth game where the Jets ended up winning it 5-4 in OT. The Sharks beat the Hawks 7-3 and not only did they lose the game but they lost their starting goalie yet again. Evander Kane pushed Dylan Strome into Crawford causing him to hit his head on the goal post and he has been diagnosed with a concussion. This is going to hurt the Hawks who have already had a terrible year.

We have 5 games tonight and I could only come up with one tip. I wanted to take the Habs to beat the Bruins as they have been playing well of late and the Bruins are banged up. But I cant find the confidence in Montreal to make the play. The odds are terrible for the Preds to win against the Sens. I am still nervous about tipping anything involving the Penguins and the Knights vs Jackets game is another where I cant find anything I like for it

Islanders vs Avalance  Betting Tips:

The way the Avalanche have been playing, Over seems like the safest tip. They are ranked 3rd overall in GPG with 3.67 but they also allow lots of goals averaging 3.06 against per game.

Their last 6 games have all gone over too with totals of: 10, 7, 10, 8, 7 and 9.

The Isles will play 6 of their next 7 games on the road. They won their last game 4-3 in a shootout against the Red Wings.

MacKinnon and Rantanen have been incredible this year. They lead the league in scoring and their linemate Landeskog is also having a good year posting 40 points in 33 games.

This is the first meeting of these teams this year but their last 3 had high totals of 7, 10 and 6.

Over 6 incl OT/SO: 0.5u

Canada: 1.77 Odds at Sports Interaction
USA: -130 Odds at Bovada
Everyone Else: 1.76 Odds at Bet365
