A great night of hockey and a decent night with the tips as we went 2-1.  But it was a close night.

First, with the line set at 5.5, we went with over in the Penguins vs Flyers game.  The Penguins won 5-1 thanks to a 4 goal outburst in the 2nd.

Our other win of the night was the Caps to beat Canes and they did 5-4.  Like it has been when the Caps play recently this game needed OT.  But it was Ovechkin scoring his 2nd of the game to win it.

We had over in the Lightning vs Maple Leafs game and this didn’t happen.  I said if I was to pick a winner i would go with Tampa but was more comfortable with the over.  Yeah I was wrong.  The Lightning won 2-0.

The Habs lost their 5th straight when they lost 4-1 to the Sharks.  The Knights shutout the Preds 3-0 for their 8th win in a row.

A slow day with only two games.  I could only come up with one tip.

Blackhawks vs Rangers Betting Tips:

The Hawks currently sit in 7th place in the Central and 11th in the West.  They have won only once in their last 5 games and have lost 7 of the last 9 games when on the road. They are going to need to turn things around and quickly before the season gets away from them.

The Rangers are coming off of a win in the Winter Classic and sit in 4th place in the Metro.  They play great at home going 15-6-3.

The Hawks are going to start Jeff Glass again with Crawford on the IR.  Also on the IR for Chicago is Anisimov.

With the way these teams are playing I have to go with the Rangers to win.  And this pains me to say.

Rangers win incl OT/SO
