It’s been quite a crazy week in the NHL results wise, and last night saw that continue with a couple of upsets. The Canadiens stunned the Flames 4-2, and the Islanders were thumped by the Devils 4-0.

For me the craziest thing is the Oilers are actually living up to expectations for once. It’s honestly really nice to see. I’ve got a lot of friends who are Oilers fans and used to visit there twice per year. Glad they are finally getting to see those results.

How the heck are the Anaheim Ducks 2nd in the Pacific? Forget the Pacific – 2nd in the entire West! Sure they’ve played more games but man that is something else.

Five games today and quite a few on B2B. Let’s see what we got:

Leafs vs Flames:

I was about to type “I don’t know if I can legitimately bet on games involving the Leafs the rest of this season and I’m okay with that” – then I saw the Flames odds at about 2.65 and figured it’s well worth a look.

Leafs – you know the deal. They can perform like they did against Philly just as easily as they can perform against the Kings. You will of course see more of the former than the latter over the course of a season. If you’re betting on anything involving the Leafs it’s generally based on the odds for or against them, and factoring that crap in.

Flames though….on a back to back, two heavy losses? Leafs might be wihout Tavares again but as we saw – that doesn’t really matter.

Two generally very strong offensive teams. Jack Campbell can be solid assuming he is in net but I think Flames will be even more desperate tonight to get back on the winning track. Vladar is projected for the Flames tonight which is good – they put offense first when he is on the ice. 2-0 with a .887 save percentage for him says it all.

Over 5.5 Goals if Vladar is in net

And this is why I say to always have an account at BetOnline.. Most other sportsbooks have this at -115 or -110. This is a steal.

Sabres vs Oilers:

Oilers on a B2B against a rested Sabres side who have only lost once in regulation this season – to the Bruins. Sabres are struggling a tad at the moment but still getting the puck in the net. Honestly I’d rather take a shot with the Sabres here.

The over is actually tempting, looking at it. Sabres good for 2-3 goals per game at the moment. Oilers are not a defensive juggernaut.

Yeah I think there is enough in this one to go Over 6 Goals incl OT/SO.

Hurricanes vs Flyers:

Canes had their first loss last weekend, but bounced back with a solid win over Tampa Bay. They’ve now had a couple of days to rest and prepare and take on Philly, who just lost to the Leafs last night.

Feels like a good little spot for the Canes to get back on track.

I certainly respect the Flyers this season, but I rate the Canes higher and feel this is a good price.

Canes in Regulation if Andersen is in net

Jackets vs Capitals:

Caps too heavily favoured for me. A bit all over the place at the moment. Jackets can cause teams problems. Don’t feel confident enough to take Caps in regulation, and don’t want the risk of OT at that price.

Blackhawks vs Coyotes:

Any team 2.85+ against the Blackhawks you just want to bet them, don’t you? But Blackhawks seem to be getting some confidence going and I think should take this. No bet.

To WIN ML: Carolina and Chicago
If ever a team has had enough BS and has the talent and decision to move on, it’s Chicago in the last week and going forward. I expect them to wipe Arizona off the ice, but not being an above average tally maker at the net, I’m sticking with moneyline, even though Chicago’s shot total has been going up nicely. (NOTE: 8 of Arizona’s last 10 games saw them lose by more than one goal). Edmonton should win, but a back-to-back worries me. Calgary has been doing lots of lineup changes, something that’s undermined them for years, so against Toronto, another constant mystery, no bets.


can’t argue with any of your decision guys. However, I’ll add Oilers in 60 and McD o1.5 pts.


2 disallowed goals. What a start
