It was a night of good NHL action last night with a lot of tight games.

that Knights vs Sharks one was a real interesting one and it shows what a workhorse the Vegas Knights are.

I’d looked closely at that one yesterday. I was extremely temped by both the Knights win and the Over. What put me off however was the Sharks. Win or lose, they seem to dictate the games and have low scoring games. Actually only THREE of their games all season have been over 5.5 goals. That’s crazy.

That was enough to put me off tipping that one – yet the Knights not only won, but forced a rare high scoring game out of the Sharks. Absolutely crazy how hard the Knights work and what they’re doing this season. Very impressive.

Man the Leafs did not deserve to win last night. They are not looking good at the moment – crazy to see them regress so fast. That 1st period especially – it was as if none of them had ever played hockey before. Going to be an interesting next few games for the Leafs.

An interesting day today. At first glance not a lot stood out but as I dug deeper into it, there was a fair bit we both liked.

Picks that didn’t make the cut:

– Scott likes the Hawks over the Panthers. They’re the underdogs but he likes their record against the Panthers in the last 10 and feels they’ll be out for revenge after their last meeting.

– Scott likes the Leafs/Caps over especially with Andersen not starting.

– Graeme feels the Devils/Wings is a tight game and a bet on it going to OT has value.

– Graeme feels the Sharks have a good chance to beat the surging Jets as they’ve shown this season they’re a solid bounce back team. The odds just aren’t enough though based on the performances of the Jets lately.

Here’s what we have:

Canadiens vs Sabres Betting Tips:

Carey Price is back in net for the Habs tonight.

Look I know more than most how bad the Habs are at the moment. Even when Price was in net it didn’t matter.

Price is like putting a bandaid on after taking a shotgun to the head at this point.

However Price back should just be enough to give them that confidence to turn this losing streak on its head at the Bell Centre tonight. Hell last time they won was aginst the Sabres.

I think the only concern here is if the Sabres get an early goal – that could really spook the Habs. But I just have to think that Price will give the Habs that confidence they need tonight and it’ll temporarily erase all of the issues they have had this season.

Knights vs Coyotes Betting Tips:

Knights have proven that they can perform on the road. They’re going against a Coyotes team who you have to think they won’t take lightly after their performances lately.

I’ll tell you – I’m not 100% convinced. My main concern is the Knights performances on the 2nd leg of a back to back.

However Subban is scheduled in net and with his performances thus far, the confidence the Knights have shown with him between the pipes and really just the Knights performances overall – I’ll stick with them.

But as a warning – it’s one where we’ve made the pick but I’m starting to not like it as much the more I look at it.

Knights in incl OT/SO if Subban is in net

Penguins vs Lightning Betting Tips:

Tampa offense has been a little bit disappointing the last 2 games but they were still two tough games.

Penguins offense has scored 5 in the last 2. Penguins are a messy team at the moment but they still have that quality.

It seems to be undecided as to who is in net, so we’re going goalie dependent here.

If Vasilevskiy and Jarry are in net, we like Lightning to win.

If Budaj and Jarry are in net, we like the Over 5.5 Goals.

Over 5.5 is 1.91 at BetOnline.. Tampa win is 2.00 at Bet365 (Americans: We recommend http://www.bovada.lv.

Islanders vs Senators Betting Tips:

It’s an Islanders game and I’m going with Over 5.5 Goals – no surprise there.

I just love their offense this season and they can’t seem to get it going defensively. Senators are struggling defensively this season but their offense can get going especially in similar matchups to the Islanders.

Should be a high scoring game.

What a shame by Flyers yesterday ๐Ÿ™‚

Tonight Red Wings – Devils Over 5.5? Thoughts?

Juri Safoshin

Good bet )


Good game.

Edis Hadzic

tonight pitt-tampa over 5,5 capitls ML-OT kings ML islanders ML-OT blues-wild under 5,5 avalanche-flames over 5,5 thoughts?

Smoking Barrel

What about Avalanche-Flames going over5,5?

Graeme (BetNHL.ca)

Not with Smith in net I wouldn’t. In 9 road games he’s 2.19 GAA with a .941 SV%.

Johnny Hockey

Rittich will start for the Flames! Now I like the Over ๐Ÿ™‚

Graeme (BetNHL.ca)

Oh wow that’s a surprise. Think I’ll hop on the Avs in this one. Love their home form.

Johnny Hockey

First look: I like the Over 5.5 in Coyotes/Knights


Sabres, Caps and Avalanche with one unit;
Gibbons, O’Reilly and Rantanen with half unit.


Sabres don’t win tonight. Be careful

Juri Safoshin

The Habs regulation odd is decreasing heavily, looking like they will win 100%. St Louis Blues seems to be ok bet.

Would like to take Avalanche at the regular time, and i like the odd, but still hesitating, any for / against thoughts about the Colorado Avalanche-Calgary Flames battle?

Oliver Trigg

Has to be short today-

Blues ML- 3-0 on the end of a back to back, have Allen back in net and come up against a Minnesota side who had to go to OT last night. Wild were outshot 2 to 9 in the third period and were lucky to take the game. The blues have only lost twice in a row once this season. Blues probably win in reg.

Vegas ML- The Coyotes have Wedgwood in net, while the Knights will probably have Subban back. Subban won his previous 3 in net, and with the intensity the Knights are playing with every night you’ve got to like their chances here.

Jets ML- for some reason the jets are the bookies underdogs tonight, and I’ll happily take the price on a team who have won 4 of their last 5 against a team who has won 1 of their last 5. Don’t let the sharks 4 against Vegas confuse you, Vegas have goalie trouble. Prior to Vegas the sharks had managed 4 goals total in their last 4.

Islanders ML- despite their defensive troubles they can’t stop scoring. That doesn’t bode well for a Senators team who have managed only 7 goals in their last 5 games and have lost their last 5. I expect a high scoring game but Islanders to win.

Juri Safoshin

Thanks Oliver, I’ve been hesitating and the only bet still placed a bit has been St. Louis Blues in regulation (2.20). The match showed their offence and the motivation has been clearly above Wild, great performance, worth playoffs and even the finals.


Devils ML
Sharks – Jets o5.5
Habs regulation
Blues regulation

Western RattlersD

OVER: Islanders/Ottawa
Leans: Vegas to win
The more I looked at the matchups, the more I couldn’t arrive at many choices worth a risk. There’s hockey every day, no need to pressure myself.

Juri Safoshin

Same here, no bets today. Vegas match may go to Over, Habs regulation is a bit risky.

Western RattlersD

I have no confidence in Price being the amazing goalie has sometimes is. I need proof he’s past this recent injury and even if so, it will take a couple games for him to get the edge back. I do hope he’s fine, Montreal is a great hockey town, it’s time they climbed the ranks again.
