Well it was a night with many surprising NHL results and unfortunately we were on the tail end of two of them.

I haven’t had a chance to catch highlights yet but it looks like my fear of the Blackhawks stepping up due to Glass being in net were true. They are a very weird team when it comes to motivation and what seems to isnpire them. Although in saying that Glass looked to have a good performance racking up 42 saves.

We had the Devils against the Sabres and while the Devils outshot them, Buffalo fought hard and manged to get the W in OT.

It’s a Saturday with a rare low of 6 games which is nice as gives me time to actually look through them. Off to watch the Old Firm match today.

Canadiens vs Panthers Betting Tips:

The Habs are just not having a good time at the moment.

Price is struggling and the team itself is just playing some absolutely dire and uninspired hockey.

The Panthers are a team that always put up a fighting performance at home and they’ve had 3 solid if tight victories here in a row.

I’m going to back them to make it 4.

Panthers to win incl OT/SO

That’s all I’ve got for tonight. I think the Capitals probably beat the Devils but no odds yet and I don’t think they’ll be good enough anyway – I’d prefer OT/SO on that one.

Hurricanes will probably be underdogs against the Blues and the price is a big decider on that one – but the Canes road form hasn’t been great so I’m staying away from that.

Excelent pick Flayers. Good job.

Iceman

Not the greatest card tonight with too many teams in b2b

Iceman

What the hell happened last night, 7 dogs end up with Ws? Onto tonight.

I like the Bruins to bounce back from a shootout loss against the Caps two days ago. They have had a leisurely trip to Ottawa and should be motivated to continue their winning ways. They are 9-4 this month and 10-5 vs teams with losing record. Until the loss to the Caps they had won 5 straight. Ottawa’s troubles are well known though they showed some heart in their game last night against CBJ. They have one of the worst goal differentials in the league while the Bs is one of the best. I have Bruins in regulation, TT o3.5 and PL. Let’s hope the Sens are tired from their shootout vs CBJ.

Preds dropped a tough one in the first leg of their home-home vs the Wild. But today they return to Nashville where they have dominated their opponents all season. They’ll be in front of a full house so they’ll be no shortage of motivation as they try to get revenge. I have Preds in regulation and TT 3.5. With two back-up goalies likely in net I like the over as well.

Over Habs-Cats – Both of these team are near the bottom in GA so I see a sloppy game with plenty of pucks finding the back of the net. Cats have tightened up their D of late, but Habs are porous as hell.

Cats ML -120 – Cats are 4-1 in last 5 with 2.2 GA. They are averaging 3.6 goals at home. Pretty good odds for a team that has been playing well at home and is on an upswing against a team whose form has been poor.

Last night was horrible!

Oliver Trigg

Revolting. All dog wins. Only picks I got right were Ducks and Canes

Lendo

In my tired state last night I typed an extra 0 on to my stake and lost my entire lot on Devils ML.

Schoolboy error.

Shawn

I lost half my lot on Devils overtime. Thought it would be a for sure win.

SanDiegoBruinsD

Oh man, that sucks. It’s happened to all of us. You’ll get it back–good luck

Lendo

I’m so angry. Worked so hard on stats etc to raise what I had.

Geir Aage R Jensen

I agree on Nashville win,

SanDiegoBruinsD

You don’t agree that Bs tip?

Geir Aage R Jensen

They should win, and the stats say so, but the stomach feeling dont. Maybe Ottawa are going on there first winning road

SanDiegoBruinsD

It’s all Bruins at the end of the 2nd

Oliver Trigg

No Forsberg for Preds.

Geir Aage R Jensen

Dosent matter, Not my bet for tonight 🙂

Bjørn Marcelius Stensberg

Wouldn’t be so sure about over 5.5 Habs-Cats, Even though as you said that they both are near the bottom in GA, I don’t feel like Panthers or Habs will find the net that many times, something along the lines of 3-1 is my prediction, but you’ve always proven to be a good tipster, so we’ll have to wait and see..

Oliver Trigg

I like everything par the Preds tonight. Picked it myself but now seen no Forsberg, and not sure how a losing team reacts to that right now. He is a crucial player.

SanDiegoBruinsD

ugh…that fucking sucks

Bjørn Marcelius Stensberg

Had a great night last night with Dallas ML and over 5.5 + Devils – Sabres o 5.5

Tonight picks:

Florida Panthers vs Montreal Canadiens (Panthers REG)

The Florida Panthers have been on a great run lately with 4 straight wins in their last 5 games. Canadiens on the other hand has lost 3 straight games in a row out of their 5 last games. With the Panthers buzzing to get a win I do not think Canadiens will be up for the task to grab the win. The Panthers also have a pretty good home record in their last few games. Both teams need to win, but I think the only outcome of this match will be Panthers on the top.

St. Louis Blues vs Carolina Hurricanes (St. Louis ML)

The Canes must be buzzing after their victory over the Pens last night, but they will also be tired. The Blues played the Dallas Stars and lost 4-2, a great game to watch. Since both teams played last night, they’re both going to be tired, but with the Blues at home I do not think that the Canes will stand a chance. The Blues really need to win this one since they’ve been on a bad run latley with only one within their five last games. Canes have a four game winstreak, but that will burst tonight. Over 4.5 or 5.0 goals could also be a strong play in this game.

Leans
Bruins ML
Caps
Preds
Nucks ML

Oliver Trigg

Well done on another successful night !

Bjørn Marcelius Stensberg

Thanks, and you too! Been following you and SDB for a while and will probably jump on the tips aswell, I think it’s nice to get different input.
Always nice to wake up with some profit, and thanks to you I played Kings when I woke up while the game were at 1-1.

Lawelly

Any reason behind the value on Devils? Looks like a great bet to take advantage off tonight, even tho i know Washington is great at home but Devils in great form and has been scoring a lot lately!

SanDiegoBruinsD

I’d stay away. Caps are playing well

Geir Aage R Jensen

Oliver Trigg

Super late sorry! Been travelling all day, and will be on a plane tomorrow so may miss tipping tomorrow. Hope at least someone sees this.

Panthers ML (80%) – Agree with Graeme here. Reckon Panthers will want revenge for their 5-1 loss to the Habs earlier this season. Montreal just have 0 offence at the moment, and scoring 4 goals in 4 games gives me 0 confidence in them. Price has not looked that good and Reimer has been better lately. Florida just look the better team.

Bruins Reg (90%) – Bruins put the smackdown on the Sens a few days back and I expect the same tonight. Bruins come off a tough loss to the caps and come against a bad tired Sens side that is lacking everywhere.

Preds ML(75%) Saros is better than Stalock and in my opinion better than rinne at the moment. Preds can’t keep losing with their talent and have been solid at home whilst the wild have struggled on road ice.

Canes ML (70%) – The Canes are in far superior form to the blues and shouldn’t be considered the underdog to the Blues here. Decent value for the Canes to tips blues side struggling to put pucks in the net.

Kings Reg (85%) – I really like this play. Simply because the Canucks are in no position to be putting up back to back wins in their state. They haven’t done so since losing Horvat and Baertschi and I don’t see them having much luck against a kings side who were unlucky to lose to the Knights.

Caps ML (70%) – Plain and simply the caps are great at home and Devils are poor on the road. If the Sabres can down the Devils so can the Caps

Oliver Trigg

***Update****- No Forsberg for Preds. Won’t play them.

Oliver Trigg

Interesting stat on Kings. 6-1 in their last 7 games on 1 days rest, and 7-1 in their last 8 against losing team.

SanDiegoBruinsD

Krejci back for Bruins. huge addition

Oliver Trigg

All over Bruins and Kings. Think I back Bruins more than you do these days lmfao

SanDiegoBruinsD

Ha! that could be. But I’ve watched them for a long time and have seen them far apart more times than I can remember. Right now they are playing well, but tonight Sens are really aggressive. All that talk about trades must have them motivated.

SanDiegoBruinsD

All Bs baby!!!

Matthew

Wow, great tips. I have been using them lately and with the exception of yesterday you are always nearly 100% accurate. Good job

Oliver Trigg

Thank you! Glad to hear it, enjoy your profit! Didn’t manage to put up a large post last night as I was on a plane- but if you caught my comment (as a reply to where I was) it was another 4-0 winning night 🙂 happy New year!

Matthew

Yes, I put a heavy bet on Knights reg and Knights ML&Bolts ML parlay. I also did some other small bets, some of them cashed in, some of the didn’t, but overall with the two heavy bets it was another juicy night ?

Oliver Trigg

Nice man let’s keep it rolling!

Matthew

Thanks, do you have any guess for Rangers-Sabers?

Oliver Trigg

Like Rangers see my post 🙂
