Well its back to business as usual now that the All Star game is finished. 

The Flames placed Jaromir Jagr on waivers which he cleared and the Flames then sent him to HC Kladno of the Czech League, a team he co-owns.  I think this may be the end of his incredible NHL career.   He sits 2nd all time in points behind Gretzky and 3rd in games played behind Howe and Messier.  If this is indeed the end of Jagr he will go down as one of the greatest to ever play the game.

A nice night of hockey for us with 12 games which is a great way to get the playoff races underway.

Canadiens vs Blues  Betting Tips:

The Habs have a lot of work to do if they are to make the playoffs.  They currently sit 10 points back of the final wildcard spot.  Weber and Danault are out and there’s no timetable for their return.  Andrew Shaw has now joined them on the IR where he is expected to be out for 4-6 weeks.

The Blues are wrapping up their 4 game home stand where they have gone 2-1 so far.

The Habs lousy road record, 8-13-1, and the Blues decent home record, 17-10-0 suggest that this is a game the Blues should win.  And I agree

Blues in regulation 

Canada: 1.86 Odds at Bet365
USA: No Odds yet but check out Bovada once they’re released
Everyone Else: 1.86 Odds at Bet365

(Odds correct as of 2018/01/30 11:21:24 AM EST but are subject to change.)

Ducks vs Bruins  Betting Tips:

The Bruins are on an incredible run an I normally would be taking them to win this game.  They have earned a point in 18 straight games.

But it’s the Ducks success against Boston that has me off of picking the Bruins in this gamw.  The Ducks have won 8 in a row against the Bruins.

The last three games between these two teams have hit 6 or higher and 4 of the last 5.  I expect that trend to continue in this game.

Over 5.5 incl OT/SO 

Canada: 2.00 Odds at Bet365
USA: -105 Odds at Bovada
Everyone Else: 2.00 Odds at Bet365
