The Devils couldn’t quite pull out the win last night in a shootout in Denver, but the Blackhawks were able to do what we expected and beat the Coyotes. I’m also happy to report that my two underdog picks (Senators & Sharks) both hit for our paid subscribers last night.
Tonight I’ve got a couple puck line bets for you guys that I feel pretty good about. My two paid plays have already been sent out to our subscribers.

Ottawa Senators @ New York Islanders
Andrew Hammond simply cannot lose. Even after being down 2-0 to the Habs last night, with the best goaltender in the league in my opinion, Carey Price, across the ice, the Sens still found a way to win. The Senators are playing great hockey of late. These games are not fluke wins. Even in their loss to the Bruins they greatly outplayed Boston, but couldn’t beat Rask, who is also playing great of late. Even though this is the second of back to back games I’m on the Sens again in this one and I like their puck line odds against these Isles.
Play: Senators (-1.5) 5.75 @ PinnacleSports.com
Toronto Maple Leafs @ Calgary Flames
The Flames somehow keep getting the job done even without Mark Giordano. Kris Russell has stepped up and has become an elite offensive defenseman since Giordano went down. This Flames team seems destined to make the playoffs and I don’t think a game with the Leafs will get them off course tonight. In fact I think this high powered Flames offense will light up the Leafs and win by at least 2 goals.
Play: Flames (-1.5) 2.68 @ 5Dimes.eu
