We went a perfect 3-0 last night.

We had the Penguins to beat the Blue Jackets which they did winning 5-2.  The Pens didn’t have Crosby, Letang or Fleury but Malkin and Kessel stepped up, both scoring twice. 

The Stars entered the 2nd period down 2-0 but stormed back scoring 4 straight goals to take the lead and win 6-3. Lehtonen was pulled after allowing 2 goals on 4 shots but Niemi was solid the rest of the way.

We had over 5 in the Canadiens vs Predators game and this came through for us when the Preds won 5-1. 

Well it’s the last day of hockey before the NHL takes a 3 day Christmas break but it’s a busy night with 10 games.  After todays tips we will be back once hockey resumes on Saturday, December 26th. 

Graeme had mentioned a week or so ago he has been working on a 1st period betting system. While he’s not ready to start posting it in the regular tips yet as it’s still in its infancy, he’s been posting tips in the comments the last two days. On Sunday he posted a “very confident” tip which won, and yesterday he posted 3 “slightly confident” tips which won. The current record of it is 4-0, +6.5 units. He’ll continue posting tips in the comments for the next couple of weeks but wants to remind everyone the system is in it’s infancy.

Betting on the 1st periods is recommended at the following books:

Americans: Bovada.
Canadians: Sports Interaction
Outside North America: Bet365.

We wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays or whatever it is that you celebrate.

Blues vs Bruins Betting Tips:

The Bruins have a strange record.  They play far better on the road then they do at home.  At home they are 8-7-2 but on the road they’re 11-2-2.  But it seems to be working for them as they’re in 2nd place in the Atlantic Division. 

The Blues are currently 3rd in the Central and are 12-4 against Boston over the last 15 years.  So maybe this could be the game that ends their current slump.

With a win the Bruins could move into 1st in the Atlantic so they’ll be swinging for the fences in this one as will St Louis who wants to head into the break on a positive note.

Jets vs Flames Betting Tips:

The Jets are 5-5 over their last 10 games and have a lousy road record of 6-11-1.

The Flames are 7-3 after their last 10 and have won their last 9 home games.

With the Flames success at home and the Jets likely going with Hutchinson, who is 0-6-1 over his last 7 road games, you have to like Calgary’s chances in this one.

Canadiens vs Wild Betting Tips:

The Habs are looking to avoid their first 5 game losing streak in 4 years.  They need to find a way to win and they would love nothing more then to pick up a win before heading to break.

The Wilds last 4 games have had high goal totals; 9, 5, 7 & 8.  They’re 6-2-2 over their last 10 but are riding a 2 game losing skid.

I like this game to have goals. The last 10 games between these 2 have had an average of 6 goals. Surely the Habs can find a way to score and gain something before the break and the Wild want to snap this streak.
