Well it was a lousy day for the tips yesterday.  We went 0-2.

Our first tip was the Penguins to win against the Stars but the Stars won 2-1 in a shootout.  The Penguins have been doing great  picking up a point in each of the 4 games to start the season.   Credit to the team for playing strong defensively to keep them competitive without Crosby and Malkin.

The other tip was Over 6 in the Panthers vs Lightning game where the Panthers won 4-1 keeping the game under.  With the Lightning already losing the Gourde line in the off-season and now losing Kucherov when he was placed on LTIR.  Going to be interesting to see what Tampa can do to get back on track.

MacKinnon made his debut and picked up an assist but the Avs lost to the Capitals 6-3. Ovechkin scored an empty net goal giving him 4 on the year and 734 for his career.

The Sharks beat the Habs 5-0.  For Montreal this was the 4th straight loss to open the season.  This is the first time the Habs have opened the season with 4 straight losses since 1995.

The Sabres beat the Canucks 5-2 and are now 3-0.  Incredible considering all the drama surrounding the team.  The Devils beat the Kraken 4-2, the Isles beat the Hawks 4-1 and the Oilers made a comeback to beat the Ducks 6-5

Only 2 games today and I’m ok with that. Sometimes a slower night of hockey is a nice break.

Bruins vs Flyers Betting Tips:

The Bruins have played only one game.  The Flyers have played twice winning one and losing the other in a shootout.  They have been able to score this season too scoring 4 in their 1st game and 6 in their 2nd.

The Flyers seem to have momentum going for them and are still at home.  But the Bruins are the Bruins and they have won their first game. 

It’s hard to read to far into the Flyers win over the Kraken but I still feel there is value in taking them to win this game.  I personally will be Betting on them to win just can’t make it an official tip

No Bet

Blues vs Knights Betting Tips:

The Blues are 2-0 and are scoring a lot.  The Knights are 1-1.

The Blues beat the Avalanche and the Coyotes so it wasn’t a super easy track to get here.  The Knights beat the Kraken and lost to the Kings.  The Knights haven’t been playing like we are used to seeing them play.

The Knights are without Stone and Pacioretty for this game.  The Blues should use that to continue their strong start to the season.

Blues win incl OT/SO

Full game OVER 5.5: Blues/Knights
A pattern so far. Interesting the Knights are coming off 5 days off, but Pacioretty being out 6 weeks, Knights will adjust lines and keep offense strong, and will be pissed having just lost 6-2 to LA, and grossly out-shot 47 to 25 (embarrassing!). Knights know they better correct their ship fast, they play the Oilers and Islanders next. Blues are running at 50% on the powerplay. So I expect both teams to be flying.
>>> NOTE: keep an eye on Winnipeg situation: Wheeler is still in Minnesota with COVID confirmed and just heard on the radio three more positive quick tests happened to teammates.
