After a four day break for All-Star Weekend I’m excited for this massive slate of games to kick off the second part of the season. There are 14 games with all but 2 teams in action tonight, so there is definitely some value out there that we can take advantage of.
I will be using the odds from whichever one of our recommended betting sites has the best odds for the outcome I expect.

Philadelphia Flyers @ Carolina Hurricanes
The Hurricanes have been solid at home all season with a 15-6-1 record. Yes, they lost 5 games heading into the break and really gave back any momentum they had, but those games were against 5 solid teams including the Blue Jackets twice, the Pens once and the Caps once (and the Kings). I still think this team has the ability to be solid when they are healthy, which they are at the moment.
Justin Faulk was the only player at All-Star weekend and I think everyone else will come back rejuvenated and ready to get back in the win column in this very winnable game at home against the Flyers.

Buffalo Sabres @ Montreal Canadiens
The Sabres were playing some good hockey heading into the break. They did lose to the Stars on the road the game before the break, but before that they had strung together three wins and Lehner had gotten back to playing good hockey in goal. The Sabres beat the Habs on the road in OT last Saturday and I think they have a good shot at repeating that performance against a banged up Montreal team that is missing some key pieces.
Play: Sabres 2.60 @ Bodog.eu
Winnipeg Jets @ St. Louis Blues
The Blues have not played great hockey to this point in the season, but with their high end defense core I still think they are very difficult to beat at home, especially when their opponents have one or two high powered lines that they rely on for a good portion of their offense. The Jets fall into this category with a vast majority of offense coming fro mthe top two lines (Ehlers-Little-Laine and Wheeler-Scheifele-Copp). I expect Pietrangelo, Bouwmeester and company to be able to slow these lines down and the offense to chip in with some key goals in this game.
I’m expecting a much better second half to the season for the Blues and that starts tonight.
Play: Blues 1.71 @ SportsInteraction.com
Those are my three plays from this 14 game mega slate tonight. Good luck with your bets.
