We didn’t have any tips yesterday but we did have a couple unit plays.

The first was the Isles to beat the Canucks.  The Isles were up 2-0 but the Canucks stormed back with 3 of their own and with just over a minute left the Isles tied it to send it to OT.  Leipsic scored his 2nd of the game to win it for Vancouver 4-3.  This was the Isles 7th straight loss and just a terrible time to be slumping like this.

Our 2nd unit play was over 5.5 in the Maple Leafs vs Sabres game.   There was 3 goals in the first, 3 in the second and 2 in the third and it was the Sabres winning 5-3.

It has been a tough year to predict winners with so many unexpected results.  Last night there was 5 games and 4 of them needed extra time to be decided.  It makes for some great hockey with some new teams in the playoff pictures.  But you also see some teams not in too like the Rangers, Islanders, Blackhawks and Blues.

A full night for us with 9 games scheduled.

Panther vs Lightning Betting Tips:

Huge game between state rivals.

The Panthers are making a push for the playoffs where they are only one point back of the Blue Jackets for the final wild card spot in the East.  The are riding a 6 game win streak into this matchup.

The Lightning are in 1st place in the Atlantic, the Eastern Conference and the league. 

The last 4 games between these two teams have been goal fests.  An 8-5 Bolts win, a 5-4 Panthers win, a 5-3 Bolts win and a 5-2 Panthers win.  The 2 before those 4 games both hit 6.

With the history of goals between these teams and such a huge rivalry, I like the over in this one.

Stars vs Predators Betting Tips:

Should be a good game here.  The Stars are sitting in 4th in the Central and hold the 1st wild card spot.  The Predators have been rolling along amazingly.  They’re in 1st place in the West and only 1 point behind the Lightning for 1st overall.

The last two games these teams played each other they went over.  A 4-3 shootout win for Dallas and a 5-2 Predators win.  The Stars have been involved in some high scoring games lately with their last 3 hitting totals of 5, 5 and 9.  The Predators are the same with their last 4 having totals of 7, 7, 6 and 11.

I like that to continue in this one.

Over 5.5 incl OT/SO 

Canada: 2.00 Odds at Pinnacle Sports
USA: -105 Odds at Bovada
Everyone Else: 2.00 Odds at Pinnacle Sports
