Only one tip yesterday and I wish I had avoided it.

Went with over 6.5 in the Capitals vs Penguins game and this stayed under when the Caps won 3-1.  I had figured that with the Penguins having great success at home this season they would have put up more than a single goal which would have helped us with the Over.  This was the Pens first home loss of the year and they were outshot 42-27.

The Islanders beat the Sabres 3-0 and Sorokin picked up his first NHL win which was also a shutout.

The Devils beat the Rangers 5-2 which was the Rangers 4th loss in a row.  Kadri scored in the final minute to give the Avalanche the 3-2 win against the Golden Knights.  Quick picked up his 53rd career shutout when the Kings blanked the Wild 4-0.

The Predators vs Stars game was again postponed due to power outages cause by severe weather.

For today we have 5 games.

Senators vs Maple Leafs

These teams played each other on Monday and it was a huge come back win in overtime for the Sens.

I would think the Leafs come back ready to get revenge but the Sens, as mentioned before, show up for games against rivals.

They have played 3 times against Ottawa wining the season series so far 2-1.  The games have had high goal totals of 11, 8 and 5.  The Leafs are the #2 ranked offense against the #31 ranked Sens defense who are allowing over 4 goals per game.

Over 6.5 incl OT/SO

(Odds correct as of 2021/02/17 9:27:27 AM EST but are subject to change.)

Panthers vs Hurricanes

These teams haven’t played yet this season with both previous games having to be rescheduled due to Covid.

The Panthers are in 2nd in the Central, the Canes 3rd and they are tied for points.  Tough to call this game with no other matches this season.   I would lean towards a Hurricanes win as they are on a 3 game win streak.

Blackhawks vs Red Wings

I went with the Hawks to win in their last game against the Wings and they did but it needed overtime.  Sure the Hawks can put together some stretches of playing good hockey but more often than not they will struggle.  They have won 2 in a row but both needed overtime.  I’ll skip this game

Jets vs Oilers

Was leaning towards the over in this game but decided against it.   The Oilers last game, against the Jets, went Over but the 3 games before that stayed under.  The Jets stayed under 5 in a row before their last game.

Canucks vs Flames

Nothing I like for this game so avoiding it altogether.
