Well it’s freezing cold here in Kingston this month but thankfully our tips have been keeping me warm!

A hot month continued last night with the Over 5.5 goals in the Panthers/Wild game hitting. We needed an empty netter so it was a little but closer than I liked but it was nice to get that win.

Also quite happy that I stayed away from the two big favourites – the Flyers and the Capitals. Flyers lost to Buffalo who I was tempted to pick, and Capitals lost to the Coyotes.

We turn our attention to Saturday, December 23rd and it’s a busy night before the break. If you’re looking for a TV show to watch over the holidays, check out the Canadian show Letterkenny. You might not get a lot of the humour/patter if you’re not Canadian – but goddamn it’s a great show. Not a family show though!

I’ve looked at the past few years data before the Christmas break and I’m not seeing any big trending data sticking out to sway the picks one way or the other so I’m personally going with “business as usual” this evening.

Islanders vs Jets Betting Tips:

Islanders are the Islanders and most likely have Greiss in net.

Jets have Mason in net. His stats actually make him look worse than he is this season – he had a bad run early October with 5, 6 and 5 goals against him but since then has had 4 solid starts letting in 2 goals or less.

However it’s the Islanders offense and no-one can seemingly stop them especially when they’re at home.

Have to go with Over 6 Goals in this one.

Capitals vs Knights Betting Tips:

I’ve been pretty sure I was going to go with this bet all week long and last nights result was a bonus as it gave us big odds.

Washington Capitals to win incl OT/SO.

Going up against a top team like the Knights(there’s a sentence I didn’t think I’d type) who are ridiculously good at home – it’s the type of game where the Capitals just show up.

Maybe the Knights outwork them like they do everyone else but I’ve seen the Capitals show up in games like this time and time again and I’ll back them to do just that.

My personal bet for this one is 2 units on the Caps incl OT/SO and 1 unit in regulation (out of a 0.5/1/2 unit betting system). Believe me the Knights scare the hell out of me but I’ve won enough with the Caps in situations like this that I can trust them.

Other Game Thoughts:

In the other early game I’m personally playing Bruins in regulation although can’t advise it as a tip.

I’m swamped today so won’t get back to edit tips but I’d be going with Rangers to win if Matthews isn’t playing or the over 6 if he is.

I like Canes against the Sabres but odds not very good.

OHL / WHL / AHL / KHL Betting Tips:
