Only 3 games yesterday.

The Knights and Capitals game was a good one.  They traded goals until late in the game when the Knights scored two in a row and came away with the 4-3 win.

The Habs scored 3 times in the 2nd and held on for the 4-1 win against the Senators.  The Sens scored first in this game but Montreal answered with 4.  2 of the 4 goals scored were on the powerplay

The final game of the night was the Sharks vs the Hurricanes and the Sharks won 3-1.

The Super Bowl was great.  Better if you are and Eagles fan or just dislike the Patriots.  The Eagles won 41-33 for their first Super Bowl win.

Another slow day of action with only 4 games.  Could only come up with one tip.

Lightning and Oilers  Betting Tips:

This is the Lightnings final game of their 8 game road trip.  They have gone 5-2.

The Oilers have gone 4-1-1 over their last 6 games.  It’s a start for them but they will need to play like this for the rest of the year to get back into the playoff picture

Over the last 10 meetings of these teams the Lightning are 6-2-2.  I like their success against the Oilers to continue in this game.

Lightning win incl OT/SO

John UduakD

thank you


Thanks Scott.
‘Underdogs’ on 2 gm losing steaks (exception) Isles with 1 win
Oilers Nugent-Hopkins injured, Larson & Talbot dtod; (TSN)Backup Montoya is (2.96) GA
Ducks on a btob; Gibson is dtod (TSN) My guess Miller (2.40) vs Leafs and Berra (2.31)vs Sabres;
Isles & Rangers have too many to list; names are on TSN injuries list;
Based on team stats, goalies and odds, Leafs, Preds, Bolts ML & Stars Reg;
*Preds Forsberg (38pts) is on a 3gm suspension.
Good luck tonight!


Islanders, Ducks, Rangers and Tampa with 1u;
Nelson, Henrique, Grabner and Johnson with 0.5u.


Hi magus,
Bold predictions:) ‘dogs’ are capable of stealing a win if they play 60 min, get some lucky bounces and ‘favs’ are over confident. Hope they come through for ya…except my team, the Leafs:) Good luck!

He ussually pic the dogs and hit st . When he hits … + 00

To WIN in regulation: Dallas
OVER: Islanders
Lean: Toronto tied with Anaheim after regulation
I’m not going with OVER for the Edmonton/Tampa game, because I figure there’s a good chance Tampa gets the lead and realizes they can shut down Edmonton by keeping them on the margins and letting McDavid waste his energy, keeping the score down. Anaheim/Toronto is so close in stats, I can’t see a side choice.


Surprised my bookie has the Isles/Preds O/U at 6 when the Preds GA is 2.46(3rd) On the other hand, Halak is (3.15) GA so if he has a really bad night, it could work:)


No tips today, out sick

Oliver Trigg

Get better soon. I’m out with uni work.


Preds Reg
Leafs Reg
Stars PL
Bolts PL

Johnny Hockey

John UduakD

Arto Reinikainen

Leafs-Ducks OT
Stars reg + Radulov to score
Bolts-Oilers O5.5


cannot just bet 4 favorites of 4 matches :-/ …I am sure that at least 1 game will be draw and in the second one… underdog will win….. thinking about Rangers ML and Oilers ML
Spezza, Klefbom, Kaše to score a goal
GL all 🙂

Steve Dimase

I also feel tonight may be a sheep slaughter, I will stay small when I pick.


Tampa Bay Lightning +115
Dallas Stars -145
Nashville Predators +110
Toronto Maple Leafs +105

All in Regulation ????

Geir Aage R Jensen

Rangers win Reg

John UduakD

Geir Aage R Jensen

U can never be sure! 10% maybe 🙂 Dallas are good at home. But i checked the stats between the teams and have a feeling that rabgRan win Reg

Mother Pucker

Rags are pretty beat up rn though..


Rags are banged up stats don’t apply sport

Juri Safoshin

Let’s have fun:

Dallas -1.5
Bolts -1.5
Islanders over 7

McDavid show, rip up your ticket unless you had the over in this one. ?


One Man Show in Edmonton


Need a bounce back tomorrow. I was awful tonight. I only played the one but all the others I liked lost. lol

Not a good sign for the start of the week.
