It was a crappy 0-2 last night with the NHL Tips.

The Blackhawks blew an early lead against the Red Wings and lost 4-2. It was a close game but the Red Wings deserved to win that with a solid performance. At least it was nice for Howard to record a win in his first game back since forever. Could see the Wings going on a wee run possibly – although they host the Rangers tomorrow so that’s a big test.

The Penguins vs Oilers game started good in terms of the over but couldn’t get there. Fleury had a rare big game pulling off 40 saves as the Penguins won 3-2 on a shootout.

The Blues may be a team to look to start backing now with 3 wins on the trot. The Wild had some big issues against the Panthers but after a goalie change won 7-4.

Let’s get onto Saturdays tips:

Bruins vs Flyers Betting Tips:

I see no reason not to take the Bruins here. They’re clearly pushing hard for the playoffs and since the coaching change they’ve obviously turned things around. Rask is also solid as all hell.

The Bruins are playing like a team who deserve to be in the playoffs. The Flyers are also on a playoff push but they’re struggling against the teams above them. They just don’t have that confidence at the moment that they’re a playoff team.

No goalie confirmed yet but it should be Rask. If Rask is in net bet the Bruins to win in regulation. It won’t be as easy as the Wings game or anything, but I feel good backing the Bruins with the way they’re playing at the moment.

Update: Rask confirmed.

Leafs vs Hurricanes Betting Tips:

I’m surprised at the odds on this one. I thought the Leafs would be a decent favourite.

They’ve had a few stumbles on the road recently for sure but they’re still playing some good hockey and looking like a playoff team.

Hurricanes have been absolutely brutal for awhile now. The only main concern is if that Rangers win turns things around mentally for them. Playing without pressure and coming off that win their offense is going to be confident.

But this is the beginning of a 3 game road trip for the Leafs and an important one at that.

I’m taking Leafs to win incl OT/SO. The over is tempting with the Canes not practising yesterday and they might have high energy, but I’ve noticed some positive changes in the Leafs defense lately and I think they will struggle.
