The Florida Panthers win streak is over when they lost 3-2 in OT to the Vancouver Canucks

It lasted 12 games and has the Panthers in 1st place in the Atlantic Division.  We had mentioned that we had waited a long time to get on the Panthers bandwagon and it figures that as soon as we did they would lose. 

The Rangers beat the Bruins 2-1 thanks to a goal with less than 2 minutes left in the 3rd. The Sharks beat the Flames 5-4.  Flames goalie Karri Ramo had a bad game allowing 5 goals on only 18 shots.  The Kings beat the Red Wings 4-2.  Kopitar had a powerplay goal and 3 assists.

A better schedule for us tonight with 8 games.  Let’s have a winning night with the NHL Betting Tips for Tuesday, January 12th.

Blue Jackets vs Islanders Betting Tips:

This is the 3rd game between these teams with the Isles winning the first two. 

The Isles are on a 2 game losing streak while the Jackets have lost their last 3. 

The Jackets haven’t been good since their trade with the Preds to acquire Seth Jones.  He went from being a 3rd pairing defensemen on a deep Nashville team to the top pair on the Jackets.  His minutes per game have jumped significantly as have his responsibilitys so it will take some time for him to adjust.  Jackets captain Nick Foligno will miss this game as he has been placed on the injured reserve.
The Isles have been decent at home this season and when the worst team in the league comes into town then you know that they will come ready for this game and a chance to end their losing streak.

Islanders in regulation

Predators vs Blackhawks Betting Tips:

The Preds are 4-5-1 and have lost their last 3 games.

The Hawks last 10 games have them 8-2 including the 7 game win streak they ride into this one.

After going through the longest streak of his career without a goal, Hossa scored twice for the Hawks in their last game.  If he has gotten back on track then he will only help the Hawks who have relied on the Kane line all season long for offense.

The Preds are 7-10-4 on the road while the Hawks are strong at home as always going 18-5-1.

Blackhawks win

Devils vs Blues Betting Tips:

Over 4.5 is the tip for this game.

When it is below 5 I feels like it should get over no matter who’s playing.

Both teams are banged up so their is no advantage between the two in that category.  The Devils are going with Kinkaid who isn’t anywhere close to the goalie Schneider is.

Not much else to say about this game just I  feel there’s a chance for goals.

Couldn’t agree more on the NY isles game. I have had no idea when or what the Blues will do so I am going to stay away from this one. Also like the pick on Chicago.
I like to sharks / jets to go over. I expect that with neither team having great goaltending/defense they are both going to score. I am always a bit concerned though when one team just lit it up the night before. Just feel that with this game both teams will throw a lot of offense at the other.


Predators this season never have more of 3 loses in a row and the winning series of Chicago make me think. So i avoid this game.
My picks are: Blues, Jets, Coyotes and Avalanche.

Henry Del Valle Sr.

I love the Avs here. Bounce back from their debacle at Chicago. Colorado also has such a tremendous series edge over Tampa and it is catching the lightening at the end of the trip I believe. Avs 4 TB 2


Anyone have thoughts on canes pens? im leaning Canes


i go with Pens to win


Its such a tossup, Pens have a bad rap for losing to garbage teams, and the canes are the canes


yea, but it is getting more and more important to get points. And i think Pens are experienced team to make it real 🙂


I like Pens in this one. Healthy & rested and the edge on defense. Canes a litte nicked up.

Henry Del Valle Sr.

Canes have beaten the Pens twice already…Pitt is coming off nice win at Montreal, but I like the way Canes match up with Pens and see Carolina with a 3-2 win here.


Colorado Avalanches – Tampa Bay lightning 3/5 over5,5goals 2,19 @Comeon! And Calgary vs. Florida Under 5,5 more on my site:)

Henry Del Valle Sr.

Colorado ML
Carolina ML
Arizona ML perhaps the Under as well.
Can’t figure out Blues..but oddsmakers put a 4.5 O/U on this so they want you to take the Over. I will gladly take the Under as Schnieder is good/ Devils offense is bad and without scorers.
Chicago should win but something smells awful here. Should be easy as Blackhawks are playing their best hockey, big winning streak, Crawford doing great, Preds losing and not scoring. Preds probably win this in OT or something.


I have either straight up or parlay bets on the following:

Pens ML 7U – good odds (i got -120 it has moved to -130) for a better team (on paper anyhow). they are healthy, rested and have the edge on GA.

Avs ML 4U- i like the Avs to steal one from Bolts who are on last game of long road trip and looking forward to sleeping in their own beds. Avs have been scoring in bunches so hopefully they will keep that up. Gibson can have bad games.

Avs o2.5 – Avs have been scoring in bunches so hopefully they will keep that up. Gibson can easily give up 3

Avs/Bolts over 5.5 – Both teams have fire power

Yotes ML – Yotes have been playing really well and putting in lots of goals. Oilers are a bad road team and putting in their 2nd string goalie who is very leaky. I like Yotes -1.5 too.

Isles/CBJ o1.5 first – leaky goaltending on both ends and I see both teams bringing a high compete level to this game.

Wild +.5 first – Ullmark is weak and will be rusty. Wild brings it every night especially at home.

Yotes +.5 first – Nilsson hasn’t been very good in his last 4 starts and he hasn’t started for 2 wks so he’ll be rusty in the first.

good luck boys

I’ve been betting on the Isles enough to make me want to avoid this game, especially at 2 odds. They almost always suck when they’re expected to win and that defense is horribad without Hamonic & Boychuk.

We have 8 games tonight but i don’t see a lot of value.. Not a single underdog really strikes out to me, and at the same time the home odds for the most part are not worth it.
But im jumping on the Hawks bandwagon. They’ve won 7 games in a row and have overcome a lot of adversity during this streak.

If i had to predict every game:

Nyi-Cbj OT (good value imo)
Pens (decent value)
Hawks (good value imo)
Ari-Edm OT (decent value)

Islanders, Hawks and Bolts games over 5 goals.

GL !


Guys, there is big value on ML Oilers.

Double for tonight is
ML st.loius
ML Oliers
