Hoping to pick it up where I left off before the break. Will be playing a light card on Tuesday as I think some teams will show serious rust after the break. History shows dogs have more value the day after the long layoff...then again, dogs have done dick this season. Will tread lightly and see who shows up before I dive back in fully.
Carolina/NYI under 5.5. Both teams have been superb on PK of late. 16/16 and 17/17. Cam Ward has been stellar, 2 goals or less in 9 straight. Nabokov 11 goals allowed in his last 7 games. Last meeting was a 2-1 OT affair despite 73 SOG.
Preds over Wild. Cant resist the Preds at this number. Hottest team before the break, 9-1 last 10. Lone loss at MSG with Lindback in. Rinne 2 goals or less allowed in all 9 wins. Wild second to only Kings in fewest goals scored per game at 2.24. Harding is confirmed for the Wild. Had a good outing against the Stars but 17 GAA in last 5 games doesnt bode well for a team that has a hard time scoring goals. I think the under also has some value here...but will definetely be on Nash once I see Rinne confirmed.
I'm going to dig deeper but so far those are my plays. Also looking at:
Bolts and the over. Garon is confirmed and has been good last 3. All wins and GAA of 2. Cap PK has been terrible of late. Bolts PP averag... [More]
