It was a hell of a night in hockey, with all 3 games being high scoring clashes.

The Detroit Red Wings came to life against the Calgary Flames, getting a huge 8-2 win to put them over .500.

The Blackhawks gave the Rangers their first defeat in awhile with a 6-3 performance.

I read some people yesterday saying Quenneville had read the Hawks the riot act. Unfortunately I couldn’t confirm that but if he had then that would have been a reason to bet the Hawks.

He did that a few times last season and at least once this year and I’d always bet on them following that. For whatever reason they really need that dressing down. Unfortunately they never seem to keep it going.

In the final game of the night, the Ducks beat the Bruins 4-2 in a tight one where Gibson had to step up big. That puts the Bruins on a 4 game losing streak.

Busy schedule tonight. Let’s get to it:

Oilers vs Blues Betting Tips:

Here’s how hockey can be so hard to predict sometimes. Often you’ll see an offense get some confidence in them, and suddenly you expect the goals to pour in right? So after the Oilers 8-2 win against the Knights, you’d think well hey time to have some faith in this offense?

Then you look at the last time they had a big scoring game – 6-3 over the Devils. Very next game? Shut out at home against the Red Wings.

Regardless, I do think that will breathe some life into the Oilers. I also think this is going to be a hard fought game by the Blues. After an excellent start, the Blues were taken to OT by the Coyotes then lost their last two in two high scoring games.

I really like the Blues to come out motivated for this game – especially with that extra long break since the Flames game. And I’m backing the Oilers to match them in what should be a fiery contest.

Knights vs Canucks Betting Tips:

Sometimes predicting games feels like mastering rocket science. Other times it’s like backing that 2+2 is going to equal 4.

Knights have been abysmal on the road this season. Their potential goalie for the night probably moonlights as a dealer at Planet Hollywood or something.

Regardless of who plays – the Knights have serious goalie issues. The Canucks actually look like a good team this season. Feels weird to type that.

But this is a team who beat the Kings on the road, have beaten tems like the Penguins, Wild and Capitals.

They should be out for blood in this one. Of course it’s hockey so anything goes. But regardless of the outcome, Canucks in regulation just seems the only sensible play. OT/SO is a fine price too but it’s one of those games where I believe the Canucks should register a strong win, so why rely on a crap shoot?

In saying that the money seems to be going on the Knights tonight. Maybe because Lagace was announced in net? It’s not like people are comparing him to Hasek or anything. I’m still fine with the Canucks pick.

Devils vs Leafs Betting Tips:

We all know the story of the Leafs and overs. The Devils are fairly similar lately with a lot of shootouts. on the road especially they’ve been on fire with games going over and being high scoring.

We saw it when these two teams played back in October with a 6-3 win for the Devils and hoping for more here with both teams throwing caution to the wind.

Matthews isn’t playing which is disappointing but I still think this one has enough in it to go over.
