Had no tips yesterday and again I’m sorry about that.

The Devils shutout the Hawks 3-0. Vanecek had 24 saves for the Devils and Dougie Hamilton had a goal and 2 assists.

The Wings beat the Lightning 4-2 and I’m glad I avoided this game with Husso the difference for the Wings making 44 saves.

The Jets addressed the slow starts and beat the Panthers 5-2. They were up 2-1 after the 1st and 4-1 after the 2nd. Scheifele and Connor both scored twice.

The Habs beat the Kraken 4-2 and Wright scored for the Kraken which was his first goal in the NHL, the Leafs shutout the Stars 4-0 with Murray making 44 saves in the win and Ducks beat the Canes 4-3 in overtime.

7 games for us tonight.

Capitals vs Flyers

The Capitals won their last game without Kuemper against the Oilers. With a weaker team like the Flyers maybe they allow Kuemper the night off again and ride Lindgren.

The Flyers won their last game when they beat the Avalanche. It’s worth mentioning that MacKinnon only played 5 minutes before he left with an injury. Over their last 10 games the Flyers are 2-6-2.

This should be a game the Caps win but they have been so up and down this season that I would much rather skip it to be safe.

Sabres vs Jackets

Over the last 10 games the Sabres are 4-5-1, the Jackets are 4-4-2.

The Sabres can score goals as they are ranked 3rd in the league averaging 3.8 per game but they can’t stop the other team from scoring allowing 3.68 per game which has them ranked 28th.

The Jackets aren’t scoring and they can’t stop other teams from scoring on them. This is why I want to take the road team to win here. But it would need to be in regulation and as the road team I’m not comfortable doing that.

Wild vs Flames

The Wild have been playing well going 6-3-1 over last 10 and are riding a 4 game win streak. The Flames are 5-4-1 and have won their last 2.

The Wild are on the road where they have gone 6-3-1, the Flames are at home where they have went 9-5-1.

Both teams are playing well at the moment so it’s tricky to try and guess who wins. I would lean towards a Flames win here but not confident enough to make it a tip.

Bruins vs Avalanche

The Bruins lost their last game which snapped their NHL record home win streak to start a season.

The Avalanche lost their last game and the loss wasn’t the worst thing that happened to them that night. MacKinnon is out and is expected to miss about 4 weeks. They were already without Landeskog, Byram and more but the MacKinnon loss really hurts them. The Bruins should take advantage of this.

With the Avalanche now having to shuffle their lines to find a way to continue without MacKinnon for the next month they may take some time to get their stuff together. It’s strange but a thing like this can sometimes bring the team together as they rally to stay competitive. But it should take more than one game for that to happen.

Coyotes vs Oilers

The Coyotes have lost 5 in a row and are 28th in GPG, 32nd in shots per game and 22nd in GAPG. They are 1-6-3 over their last 10.

The Oilers lost the last game and are 5-5 over last 10 and only 1 of those 5 wins came by more than a goal. To get any value we have to take the Oilers -1.5 and recent results show that to be a tricky play.

Rangers vs Knights

If Shesterkin could play every game the Rangers would be in better shape in the standings. He is 10-4-4 with a 2.59 GAA and a .913 save percentage. The Rangers other goalie is Halak who has gone 1-6-1 with a 3.04 GAA and a .888 save percentage.

The Knights are at home for this one where they have gone 7-5. They are 6-3-1 over last 10 and have won their last 2 games.

The Rangers last 3 games had totals of 10, 7 and 5. The Knights last 3 were 7, 5 and 7. With the line set at 6 I fine taking the Over here.

Over 6 incl OT/SO

Canucks vs Sharks

The Canucks have won 2 straight, are 6-6-2 on the road and have gone 7-3 over last 10. The Sharks are on a 3 game losing skid, are 2-7-1 over last 10 and are at home where they have gone 2-8-4.

Either team has been very good this season so it make it an easy pass for me.

Love the tips as always- thank you!

Any thoughts on O5.5 Buff/CBJ + O5.5 Wsh/Phi parlay.

Not a fan of the O6.5 but buying buffalo down to 5.5 and taking the push away from the Washington game still comes in Plus money.

Feel like caps and philly game could be 4-2 sort of game, and Buff CBJ could get wild for the points you mentioned above. Could see that game soar over with the defensive metrics for both squads

Graeme

Just having a quick look at the advanced metrics for ya:

– Yeah I mean Sabres should put up the goals at least. They also concede a lot. That one looks to me to be a 4-2, 4-3 type game for Buffalo. I’d lean more towards 4-2. So Buffalo you should be able to rely on for goals at least.
– Caps/Flyers hmmm I am not really seeing the over too much here. Poor goals against but neither offense is firing. I don’t have the data to back it up as I’ve never sat down and researched it, but I’ve found that overs don’t come in as much when it’s relying on a bad defense, as opposed to a good offense.

That’s just with a quick glance at the metrics though there could be other contributing factors.

RyanD

Always nice to hear another perspective, and appreciate you having a look at some numbers!

I have also talked myself away after looking this afternoon at L10 for both teams and just the fact that they are both essentially near or at the bottom in most, if not all offensive categories. Maybe “scared” myself away is better terms than talked. Lol.

Graeme

Yeah I mean Sabres should put up the goals at least”

I’d say that is probably accurate.

Look at o5.5 Sabres-CBJ + Bs ML

Western RattlersD

Full game OVER 6.0: San Jose and Buffalo
Leans:
Full game UNDER 7.0: Boston/Colorado
Reverse puckline of +1.5: Philly

I think the Calgary/Minnesota game is going to stay close, and I can’t see a side or O/U option clearly. Calgary has immense offensive talent that seems to be finding it hard to hit the net on quick releases, so if they fine-tune that, they’re destined for a lot of puckline wins. When? Washington at the end of a western road trip, and after one home game they go back to the north-midwest, so I hope they like the excellent Canadian craft beers and snow. I can’t see the Caps will have any enthusiasm for this game, and Philly is rested, at home and they aren’t horrible. When I watch the Caps I see a team that’s very readable in terms of their offense tactics. Oilers need all the points they can get, but have a leaky defense, and hopefully a GM that knows they better make some BIG trades for quality 200′ players, or they’ll have a bad year. Campbell in net tonight, that worries me. I can’t bet on them right now.

DeNaposD

I believe Skinner has been confirmed for the Oilers.
Last I checked it’ll be
Skinner for edmonton
Ingram for Arizona

SdBruinsD

Skinner confirmed vs Ingaham with a record of
1-5-1
4.02
0.882

Thanks Scott

Bruins hit the road looking to get back on winning track. Avs are without Nate Dog as well as some other key parts. Ullmark in net for Bs. Bruins ML -180 & Reg -125

Sabres-CBJ o6.5 – Sabres o/u L10 8-2. Both teams giving up buckets of goals. Luukkonen GAA 3.98 Korpisalo GAA 3.51
