San Jose Sharks vs Buffalo Sabres
The Sabres coming into this game at nine in a row vs a San Jose team that is 4-5-2 in their last ten coming off a loss in their last game. The Sabres are 8-2-0 at home. The Sabres score a near 3.04 goals per game while the Sharks score 3.13 goals per game. The Sharks are in the middle of pack in terms of goals against with 3, as the Sabres an almost league best 2.75 goals per game. The Sabres are home here and for some reason the Sabres are +1.5 goal spread, and +105 as the Sharks are -125 it is essentially a push on the money line but the spread looks great, it does not pay out much but I could realistically see the Sabres winning 10 straight and then the magic runs out next game. Plus Carter Hutton in net gives me a little more confidence for Buffalo. Buffalo money line or spread.
Carolina Hurricanes vs Montreal Canadiens
This is another good game the Hurricanes are under dogs here as the Canadiens are home and favorites. It makes sense sure but the Hurricanes are no walk in the park. They are 5-4-1 in their last ten as the Canadiens are on a four-game skid and 3-4-3 in their last ten. Both are not great at home nor on the road. The Canadiens average around 3.08 goals for vs Carolina’s 2.7 goals and Hurricanes 2.83 goals allowed vs Montreal’s 3.38 a near league worst. Carey Price (7-6-4, 3.16 GAA) draws in net vs Curtis McElhinney (6-2, 2.25 GAA). The story line tonight is Shea Weber draws in the line up for the first time in what feels like forever, perhaps the veteran defenseman rallies the troops but with the Hurricanes +1.5 and -105 and the Canadiens -1.5 and -115, I like the Hurricanes spread or moneyline. Go Hurricanes.
Dallas Stars vs Edmonton Oilers
A shaken up Edmonton bench, new head coach, team not producing that great already and things are looking to be going a little south in Edmonton. The Stars are a tough team to read they are hot and cold too often, they were off to a decent run last week and then slowed down in their last few games. They are coming off a lose and 4-5-1 in their last ten and 4-7-1 on the road. But the Oilers are not much better as they are 2-7-1 in their last ten and 4-4-1 on home ice and on a two-game skid. The Stars score around 2.83 goals for to an Edmonton 2.78 goals for as the Oilers allow 3.3 goals and Stars allow 2.75. Tonight Cam Talbot and Anton Khudobin both goalies have above a 3.00 goals against and .905 save percentage or lower. The over is a good possibility tonight but since it is six for some reason(two low scoring teams) I’d stick to money line or spread. The Stars are +1.5 and +115 as the Oilers are -135 and -1.5, the Oilers are not going to come into this game and win easy. Stars money line.
Vegas Golden Knights vs Chicago Blackhawks
The Golden Knights are starting to string together some wins now and have found themselves sprung into the number three seed in the Pacific with a bad Pacific division right now if the Knights keep this up they could easily find themselves in the playoffs once again. As the opposite goes for the Blackhawks they are in a tough Central division and in 6th place right now. They are 3-5-2 in their last ten and 5-3-3 on home ice Chicago, as the Golden Knights are 6-4-0 in their last ten and 5-9-0 on the road. They are on a three game win streak. The Blackhawks and Vegas score around the same amount of goals per game at 2.70 goals per game, the Hawks allow 3.38 goals and Vegas allows a near league low of 2.76 goals. I like the Blackhawks at +1.5 spread but the Golden Knights spread at -120, ultimately I think this is going to be a close game, down to the wire. Going Blackhawks spread here.
Los Angeles Kings vs Vancouver Canucks
The Canucks are struggling greatly in their last ten with just two wins and a record of 2-7-1, they are 5-4-0 on home ice as the Kings are 4-6-0 in their last ten with a 3-6-0 on the road. The Kings are going wit Peter Budaj who is 0-1 with a 5.00 goals against on the year. The Kings score around a league worst of 2.17 goals for and allow a near league worst 3.22 as the Canucks score a league average of 2.92 goals for and allow a near league worst of 3.58 goals. This is going to be another tough game to read both teams are not the greatest nor playing well. Budaj in net gives me a little insurance that the Canucks could win it but Budaj can also play a great game. With the Kings -1.5 and -115 as the Canucks are +1.5 and -105, I’d probably go Canucks spread or money line, I think Canucks take this game either way.
