The 10th Winter Classic took place yesterday and it was the Rangers winning 3-2 in OT.  The Rangers are now 4-0 in outdoor games.

When listening to the players who play or have played in these games they always mention the “experience”.  I would like to hear their honest opinion of these games, do they think they need to happen during the season with points on the line? 

A much better night for us tonight.  There are 12 games scheduled.  It’s hard to believe that we are pretty much at the halfway point of the season already.

Penguins vs Flyers Betting Tips:

These are always great games between two rivals.  Both teams haven’t had great seasons up to this point with the Penguins in 7th place in the Metro and the Flyers in 8th.  A new year and a fresh start should be how these teams move forward and try and climb the standings.

Over the last 10 games between these teams there has been an average of 6.50 GPG.  The last meeting was 5-4 OT win for the Pens and the game before that was a 6-2 Flyers win.

With the Over/Under at 5.5 I’m going with Over 5.5 incl OT/SO

Capitals vs Hurricanes Betting Tips:

The Canes have beat the Caps the last 2 games but before that it was Washington winning 3 in a row.

The Caps are in 1st in the Metro and have won 2 in a row.  The Canes are in 6th.  They lost their last game but before that they had won 4 straight.

I expect the Capitals to come out flying in this game.  They need to finish games off early and avoid playing in overtime where 5 of their last 10 games have ended.

Capitals win incl OT/SO 

Canada: 1.95 Odds at Sports Interaction + $20 Free Money Line Bet
USA: -115 Odds at Bovada
Everyone Else: 1.95 Odds at Bet365

Lightning vs Maple Leafs Betting Tips:

This one is going to be a good game between 2 of the most exciting teams to watch in the league.

The Lightning are in 1st place in both the Atlantic and the league and the Leafs are tied for 2nd in the Atlantic.

The Bolts are ranked first in GPG with 3.74 and the Leafs are tied for 4th with 3.33.

The Lightning are a great bounce back team going 9-1 this season following a loss and that was evident in their last game when they won 5-0 against the Blue Jackets.

If I was to pick a winner for this game I would have to say the Lightning but I’m more comfortable going with  Over 6 incl OT/SO

Canada: 2.02 Odds at 888 Sports

Everyone Else: 2.02 Odds at 888 Sports
