Quite the upset last night with the Jets beating the Blue Jackets. I can’t complain too much because about half the people had the Blue Jackets in our December Dynasty and that put me top of the leaderboard based on win ratio.

With the Christmas break coming up, there’s a lot of hockey to be played over the next few days with 12 games set for tonight. Leafs had a bit of a setback last night but look to bounce back against Florida. Capitals vs Flyers should be a fun game, with the first two games in the series being 7-0 and 5-4 wins for the Capitals. And the Sharks, struggling like crazy at the moment, complete the trilogy against the Blues, a team who they have beaten 6-2 and 6-3 so far this season.

Oilers vs Kings: Under 5.5

The Kings defense match up very well against the Oilers offense, and they should be able to get back on track after the Blackhawks loss and stifle them here.

However the Kings offense isn’t red hot either – Habs results aside. Oilers do tend to leak in the goals, but they’ve been tightening up a bit lately and hopefully they can get back on track tonight.

I like a quiet game between these two tonight, and you can back Under 5.5 goals at http://www.5Dimes.eu for Americans(Need to register to see lines) and and http://www.Bet365.com for everyone else..

Grand Salami: Under 65.5

There’s just something about tonight when I look at the games, where I see it being a quiet night.

I do believe there’ll be a few big high scoring games. Flyers vs Capitals and Blackhawks vs Predators in particular look good for that. But I see enough low scoring games that I’d predict the total goals to be around 58-61 for the night.

Flames vs Bruins: Under 5.5

As you can tell, I’m really hoping for a nice boring night of hockey.

In their last game, the Bruins won 2-1 in a game where both teams were stifled. Bruins don’t have the flu bug circulating throughout their team that they did last week, but the “iggy factor”(if he even plays), doesn’t look like it will affect the atmosphere of this type of matchup.

Calgary don’t have the best record in Boston – the last time they played here was January of 2012, where the Bruins casually beat them 9-0. But they’ve tightened up a lot lately, with a lot of close games and low scoring matches.
