Well that was a crazy night last night.

The Oilers beat the Lightning 6-2.  McDavid scored 4 times and added an assist. This was a huge win for the Oilers.  Not only did McDavid put on a clinic but they did so against the best team in the league this year.

The Maple Leafs beat the Ducks 7-4.  Leafs goalie Andersen left in the 2nd period after getting hit in the head by Corey Perry’s skate.  Matthews and Nylander both scored twice and had an assist.

The Predators vs Islanders game was awesome.  The Preds were down 4-3 but with less than one minute left Johansen scored to tie it and force OT where the Preds scored for the 5-4 win.  This was the Preds 3rd straight win and are now 8-1-1 over their last 10.

The final game of the night was the suddenly slumping Rangers losing to the Stars 2-1.  The Rangers have gone 3-7 over their last 10 including the last 3 in a row.

We get back to a busy night of hockey with 11 games.

Flyers vs Hurricanes Betting Tips:

Both teams are struggling.  The Flyers have lost their last 4 games, the Canes lost their last 2.

Both teams are looking to get back on track.  With the Eagles winning the Super Bowl you know the Flyers are going to try and keep the party going for Philadelphia.

These teams have high scoring games when they play each other.  The goal totals of their previous meetings hit;  7, 7, 6, 7 and 9.  With both teams needing to rebound and their history of high scoring games I like this game to go over

Bruins vs Red Wings Betting Tips:

The Bruins have been amazing.   Going back to  November they have a record of 25-4-4.  The have picked up a point in 20 or their last 21 games.

They have played twice already this year with the Bruins winning both.  The Wings home record is right around .500.  The Bruins are strong on the road going 13-5-4 on the season.

I just don’t see another outcome from this game.  The Bruins have been the best team in the league for over 2 months.

Bruins win in regulation

Main bets:
Cats reg
Jets reg+PL
Bruins reg
Blues reg
Pens-Knights over 5.5
Pens ML

Leans: Sharks, Devils, Ducks


5/7 is fair enough


Ducks, Caps, VGK and Avalanche with 1u;
Perry, Stastny, Skinner and William Karlsson with 0.5u.


Thanks Scott.
What a show! Bolts forgot McDavid won the fastest skater contest at the skills competition.
Like the Bruins to win too and the total could go under. Mrazek (If he starts) has 9 GA last 5gms, Rask is 2.09 GA and both previous gms went under 5.
Jets are 19-3-2 @home, Hellebuyck (2.30 GA) has 2SO 12GA last 6gms and beat Ari for a combined 8-2 goals in 2 previous gms. Ari has 12GF/19GA last 6gms. If Jets aren’t over confident they should win in Reg or PL.
Good luck tonight!

Juri Safoshin

Colorado -1.5 with 0.5 units
Jets -1.5 with 1 unit
Pens vs Vegas, under 5
Devils, regulation.


Are you sure about Avs -1,5 with most likely MacKinnon and Rantanen out?

Juri Safoshin

Yep, agree, – that is a risky one, some missing players, but i like Avs playing at home and the odd is great for a small single bet.

Johnny Hockey

Ducks, Bruins, Jets.

Juri Safoshin

Won’t miss the Manitoba Moose regulation win chances as well, 2 units.


Howard (1 win last 5 starts) is confirmed (dailyfaceoff) vs Bruins. Makes it even more tempting to bet on the Bruins:)


Great picks tonight G&S with great odds!

I am on both with 1u each as well.



for what it’s worth, Ducks have lost 3 straight and are at the end of long road trip. I’m guessing their focus won’t be on getting 2 pts. Nevertheless, the Sabres are pesky and won’t roll over at home.


I think they’ll want to finish strong, but on the other hand they’r on the end of a long road trip, 5on8, 3on4 and b2b. That’s my main issue…


Pure value to get Buf even money on the moneyline


Where has OT been SDB?


He is in a test period at uni

Kris- -na

Did you watch Sabres last game?
I went HUGE on Blues…They had every reason to easily win that game but they won with 1:0, Sabres looked good… Last 5 minutes of the game, omg, I almost got a heart attack… and the crossbar shot in the last second, lol. I wont touch this game


Yeah I’ll stay from it, even considering they’ll get the win, but mainly because of Ducks’s schedule.


You can make a case for both teams. Ducks had 44SOG scored 4 and lost so they’re probably tired and mentally drained after 3 losses; Sabres are 1.96 GF but ran


Out sick again, but Bruins and Jets seem like the best sides tonight. Over LVK-Pens is worth consideration



I was really leaning under 6 Pitts Vegas

You don’t think both goalies try to show each other up in this one?

I have total faith in the flower, Murray not so much but really feeling under 6 in this one.


Prolly good play


Ducks to score over 1.0 in first period.

Aðalgeir Axelsson

Hahahaha lol


Night picks,

Ducks win,
Penguins win,
Blues win,
Sharks win,
Hawks win,

I ll put all in one.

Good luck!

مدريدي اصيل

I don’t agree with u in the ducks win . Buffalo are so tough lately


Yep. Buf won the last two meetings, Ducks are on a B2B and ending a long road trip.


Tonight I like your picks.


Like Sharks play a lot if Rantanen out of line up.

I’m always nervous betting against Avs at home. With Rantanen and MacKinnon out Sharks should take advantage. Who’s going to score for Avs ?


Morning everyone,

POTD is NJD ml @1.70

Brassard (Ott), Stone (Ott) are key players to this struggling team that give them a chance to win, so when they are confirmed OUT of the lineup against a Devil’s team that has top-tier offense (12th GF) it is a no-brainer. On top of that, Craig Anderson is confirmed between the pipes (13-17-5, 3.16, 0.903%).

Western RattlersD

To WIN in regulation: Boston and Winnipeg
Taking note of Boston’s situation, their next ten games or so could all be winners, with adequate rest, though it includes some travel to Calgary and Edmonton, and two back-to-backs. However, it just says Boston should be feeling optimistic that this is a stretch in which to surge in the Win column while the picking’s good.They have three days off before going to Calgary and three days off between Edmonton and then Toronto. This is a state of grace they have to take advantage of. They should be as lethal on the road as home.
>>> Winnipeg is on an extended home stay, is well rested and should remain so to the end of this month. Strong HOME bets to watch for!!!


Guys, I wonder why is nobody playing Cats tonight. I think they have a great potential to win on fair odds.


I looked at that one. Florida can score but you never know if they’ll get a save.

Van goalie played for Florida back a few years ago, so maybe he stands on his head ?

Better options with 11 to choose from ??


I do not quite think it is 50/50, so I will surely give it a shot.



I didn’t realize Sateri, was doing as well as he is.

Ok, I’ll throw this one at ya,

You like Florida more than Jersey ?


Yes, I am usually more confident betting on home teams.

Steve Dimase

I have both in 1 parlay on the PL


Florida looks great ??

Taking it to the nucks


Not really, the game is even, it will be most likely one goal game which can go either way. But it seems like Devils are getting slattered.


Yup and my bluezz lol

Pitts saved me. I’m liking a live wager on San. Their hammering Avs shots 14 3 after 1.


Blues reg +105

Blues have only lost twice in regulation in last 20 at home vs Minni — Not to shabby

Dubby terrible #z against Blues and Minni just can’t win on the road.

Pitts ML -130 safety net with ML, Vegas just doesn’t know how to lose but Pitts owes em one and I’m feeling revenge over flower return night.


Might add another, love these 2.


5 f goals on 15 shots…. lol this is why I try not to waste my time explaining my pick.

Geir Aage R Jensen

Pittsburgh win Reg

Kessel scores

Steve Dimase

pitts ML, blues ML, sharks PL ML.. have a bunch of parlays also GL ALL..


Live wager Pitts ML +145 9 min


Avalanche +145
Chicago Blackhawks +140
Winnipeg Jets -165
New Jersey Devils +115

Let’s have a great night guys???
