13-10 YTD AHL 2-0
Wanted to pull the trigger with Red Wings yesterday but just couldn't. And that 3-2 anaheim under killed my day. Back at er today. Want to finish the week strong. Still on fence with the Avs game.
Jackets/Flyers over 5.5 - Playoff hockey screams unders, but these two teams combined for 25 goals in the three games they were in this year.
Steven Stamkos to score - Just praying this isn't some 2-1 pain induced game. The best goal scorer in the league folks. Ovie has 48 but is a power play specialist.
12-9 NHL YTD 2-0 AHL picks
Time of year when picks get limited due to baseball which is a much easier sport to handicap IMO. Still in the thick of it with my puck homies though.
Pens -180 - Hate juice, but Canes on b to b, and see Crosby taking the team on his shoulders now that Malkin is out. If Fleury can stop a beachball feel good about this pick.
Avalanche +120 - Duchene out, but so is Horton. Blue Jackets need points to stay alive. But still give the edge to Avs offense, like Nate dog Mckinnon.
11-8 NHL YTD 2-0 AHL
Painful Chicago/Philly total last night. The dreaded 3-2 score! Those west coast games were the same thing. Staying away from totals for a while. Hasn't served me well. Love NHL rivalry night. can't wait to see the Blues game. My problem the past two days is I love about 80% of the road teams. In fact making a play on maybe one or two tonight.
Blues +102 - I know Oshie is out for personal reasons, but like Miller in nets and the Blackhawks are frustrated or they are saving 40 + shots for Miller tonight.
Bolts -116 - Can see Stamkos lighting up his boyhood team tonight. Leafs have shown me nothing, while I can see Bishop shutting them out 4-0 or something.
Looking for a homer play but not feeling Jets or Nucks! BOL to the forum!
10-7 NL YTD 2-0 AHLYTD
What's up puck heads? been a while. Psyched for my cash cow baseball in a few weeks. Looking at a few puck plays tonight. Patty Roy versus my Habs tonight. Not touching it considering the insanity that went down saturday night.
Hawks/Flyers over 5.5 - Gearing up for a goal fest on TSN2 tonight. I think this will get ugly.
Rangers -128 - Sens in freefall and love Rangers road record this year. Maybe naming Spezza as captain was big mistake?
Also leaning Blue Jackets and maybe Leafs. Smell a trap though. Some lucrative dogs are going to come in. But don't have guts to take Caps or Islanders or Stars. But feeling those three teams will go 1-2.
7-7 NHL YTD AHL 1-0
Fourth consecutive year used a sick day for nhl trade deadline! Dont tell my boss! Was exciting, some good deals, but I want to seriously offer myslef as a candidate for Garth Snow's GM job, getting me in there could bring some glory and stability to a much tarnished franchise. Couldn't be too hard. As for my Habs getting Vanek, was a good deal by not giving too much for a rental. Seeing him as a good playoff scoring addition, Would have loved Kesler, but so would tons of other teams. Just want the Habs to get more players hard to play against, and get rid of fluff like Rene Bourque. As for the picks tonight, been a while, looking at a few prop-like picks. Reeling from that being a loser on that San Hoser total last night. Missed the Canes big dog ml.
Caps/Flyers over 5.5 - Cashed last week on this, and see no stop.
Ovechkin to score - worth it, since he failed to score in the last matchup with these teams.
Rangers over 34.5 shots - Leafs should have traded for a shot blocking defenseman, Leafs always get badly outshot. Marty St. Louis playing tonight. A good shot at a high shot total.
AHL - Oklahoma city/Utica ovver 5.5 - Linesmakers finally putting some juice on the best AHL bet. Been on an OKC over a lot this year. Never seems to lose.
As for taking a stab at the Habs big dog ml, going to be a game time decision. They beat the Ducks already once this year, and tend to show up against teams that are supposed to annhilate them.
