Sorry about the delay in the tips today – the sportsbooks took awhile to get the line out for the Penguins game.

It was a 1-1 night last night with the NHL Tips.

We had the Devils/Maple Leafs to go over 6 goals and that hit 9 goals. The Devils were the big scorers in that one as they beat the Leafs 6-3. It was another solid performance by Schneider who had to make 47 saves and out of the 3 goals he conceded, 2 were power play goals.

The confidence a team has in a goalie really is such a big factor in the NHL. The Avs also displayed that last night in their victory over the Bruins. With Varlamov between the pipes they seem a different team.

We lost with the Penguins/Capitals Over 6 as that one only hit 5. There was a lot of close calls in the final 5 minutes for that one including a brutal empty net fail by the Penguins when they got caught offside getting too cute. Ovechkin also kept losing the puck during the 6 on 5 moments which was frustrating to see.

We move onto Thursday, October 12th with 7 games on the board and some intriguing games. I’m particularly looking forward to the Wings vs Coyotes game – I think it’ll be a good one to figure out where both teams are.

Let’s get to the tips:

Penguins vs Lightning Betting Tips:

I was a bit disappointed in the Capitals yesterday – they didn’t really make a game of it as much as I’d have liked and that hurt the game going over.

We’re hoping for a much more competitive performance tonight from the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Tampa have played 3 games this season and all of them have been high scoring. The Tampa defense have hung Andrei Vasilevskiy out to dry a fair bit but the offense have been firing hot and I’m hoping for more of the same tonight.

These two had some thrillers last season – hell their last 10 games together have had at least 6 goals in them. You have to go back to November 2013 for the last time they went under. So let’s hope for another good game tonight.

Blackhawks vs Wild Betting Tips:

It’s been a struggling start for the Minnesota Wild and now they head to Chicago to take on the 3-0-1 Blackhawks.

The Blackhawks are putting in some terrific team performances at the moment and the Wild are playing without Parise and now Granlund.

Dubnyk was terrific last season but he’s off to a bad start with that pounding by Detroit where he let 4 goals past him. Now he’s going to have to step up big against the Blackhawks.

We think the Blackhawks will be too strong for them tonight. In saying that, the Blackhawks relied a fair bit on OT/SO wins last season so in that case we’re going to take that extra insurance of Blackhawks to win incl OT/SO.

Canada: 1.81 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.
USA: -130 Odds at Bovada.
Everyone Else: 1.81 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.
