Wow.  The NHL has gotten off to a great start.

The Leafs are 2-0 after beating the Rangers 8-5 last night.  The Blackhawks are flying.  They beat the Blue Jackets 5-1 last night after beating the Penguins 10-1 in their first game.

Ovechkin is on fire.  He’s a player that needs to score to get his game going and has he ever gotten his game going.  He scored a hat trick in the Caps first game and followed that up with a 4 goal game last night.

And how about the Vegas Knights at 2-0!!.  Just unreal.  Graeme seems to want to jump ship from being a Habs fan and start being a full on Knights fan.  As a Hawks fan there were plenty of years where it was tough to cheer for them but there was no way I was stopping and that worked out amazingly for me.

But overall with the way this season has started we are in for a great year with lots of goals.

We went 1-1 with the tips last night.  We had over 6 in the Rangers vs Leafs game and this one hit 13 with the Leafs 8-5 win. We had won this tip after the 1st period where the Leafs were winning 5-2.  We had the Oilers to beat the Canucks in regulation but it was Vancouver winning 3-2. 

Only the one game today the Canadiens vs the Rangers.  It’s Thanksgiving weekend in Canada so I think that has something to do with it.

Canadiens vs Rangers Betting Tips:

The Habs beat Sabres 3-2 in a shootout in their first game and followed that up by getting their ass kicked 6-1 by Ovechkin and the Caps last night.

The Rangers are 0-2 to start the year. They lost to the Avalanche in their first game and got beat 8-5 last night by the Leafs.

This is a tough game to call.  These are two good teams and with so little to go by so far it’s hard to read them.

I’m going to avoid a tip for this game.  Both teams are coming off of getting beat badly  and its tough to predict how they will respond.

Yeah you’re right ‘bout this one. Already look’n at the schedule for Mon & Tue. The Hawks will play TO & MTL btob. I know it’s still early in the season but I like the Hawks chances with TO based on experience (Kane 4pts, Toews 3pts) Saad’s return (4 goals 1 assist) more discipline (GA 2.00) and highly motivated (2-0-0) beating Pit& Clb. Leafs are 2-0-0 but they gave up 5 to NYR so discipline is key for them. Of course I love their chances against Mtl!

Good luck everyone!


I haven’t done an in-depth analysis, but from a casual glance it looks like teams that have a high opinion of themselves are not taking underdogs seriously and are paying the price. For example, I watched some of the Knights-Stars game and the Stars seemed to be treating the game like it was pre-season: not playing with focus, intensity or discipline. Alanson got that one right; I lost because I assumed with a new coach and in front of a home crowd for their opener they’d want a win. I was wrong.

This is what happens every year at times, and Oilers now consider themselves a good team, meaning there’s going to be lack of respect every once in a while which will cost them especially on the road. And on the flip side, other teams see the Oilers are a top team. Completely different from last year where they were focused most of the time against anyone just trying to make the playoffs and sometimes they had the element of surprise.

To be fair Dallas had a lot of jump against Vegas and im pretty sure with Bishop in net for the rest of the 3rd period they win that game. He was excellent up until that point. We’ve already seen how bad Lehtonen’s been.

In any case Vegas will probably do that to bunch of good teams this year. It’s really hard to generate emotion against a team you should always beat, but haven’t played before. On the flip side, they’ll get their asses kicked once the better teams get a chance for revenge.

Major shock that Edmonton collapsed in Vancouver. Oilers can’t blame that on travel fatigue, and they played fast and hard against Calgary, so I’m raising the yellow flag on Edmonton; I suspect they may be getting ahead of themselves with the superstar pay and expectations, new arena, a general cigar-smoking grandiosity that could get in the way of consistency? Other teams will be out to beat Edmonton. Vancouver just did. Vancouver? Yikes!
