2-0 last night as our underdog pick on the Lightning came through with a 4-2 win and then Anaheim went on to beat the Sharks 5-3.

Great start to the week, but let’s keep it going with another 2-0 night tonight as we take two home teams to win in regulation…

2 UNIT = Buffalo Sabres @ Montreal Canadiens – CANADIENS TO WIN IN REGULATION (-118)
(Note: I’m risking 2.00 units to win 1.69 units)

The Sabres are having a tough go right now as they sit 10-15-4 on the year and just 5-9-2 on the road.  Buffalo has lost two straight games and 6 of their last 7 overall.  The only upside for Buffalo is that they managed to get a single point in three of those losses.  While Buffalo sits in last place in the Northeast the Canadiens are sitting in 1st with their 19-5-4 record and 9-3-2 home record.  Montreal has won 5 straight games and have outscored opponents 19-11 (averaging just under 4 goals per game during that span).  These two teams have met twice with Montreal winning 6-1 at home, and then Buffalo winning 5-4 in shootout in Buffalo.  If you can remember that game the Sabres came from behind and tied it up during the last few seconds of the game.  Buffalo has lost 5 straight road games, while the Canadiens are 9-4 in their last 13 home games.  I like Montreal to win in regulation.

2 UNIT = Washington Capitals @ Pittsburgh Penguins – PENGUINS TO WIN IN REGULATION (-118)
(Note: I’m risking 2.00 units to win 1.69 units)

The Capitals are 12-15-1 on the season and just 4-8-1 on the road.  They are coming off a 5-3 home victory against Buffalo on Sunday, but had lost 4 of their last 6 games overall.  Washington has scored just 12 goals over their last 6 games (just 2 goals per game), while giving up 22 against (over 3 per game).  The Pittsburgh Penguins are on an impressive 9 game winning streak to push their record to 22-8 on the season and 10-4 at home.  The Penguins have scored 3+ goals in 8 of their last 9 games.  They are also playing solid defensively allowing just 5 goals against over their last 5 games.  Take note that Washington is 4-11 in their last 15 road games  while the Penguins are 39-16 in their last 55 home games dating back to last year.  In their two meetings this season the Penguins have won 6-3 in Washington and more recently 5-2 in Pittsburgh.  I’ll go with the red hot Penguins to take care of the Caps in 60 minutes.

By the way I sent out an email yesterday but in case you missed it here are the details on my $1500 March Madness contest:

I’m happy to announce I’m running a $1,500 March Madness Bracket that will be absolutely free for all of my subscribers.

The payouts are going to be 70/20/10 I believe, meaning first place will get $1,050.

The great thing about this March Madness contest is that there won’t be thousands and thousands of people entering it and you will have a legit shot at winning a nice cash prize if you submit a solid bracket. I am expecting maybe 200-500 people to enter giving you a pretty good chance at taking it down. It will be worth the couple minutes it takes to sign up.

Here’s how to enter (5 minutes max):

#1 – Click here to visit the site we are hosting the contest at (you must click that link in order to be tracked and allowed in the pool)
#2 – Register a new account at the War Draft site
#3 – Check your email for the account verification
#4 – Once verified you will see “Kevin’s Pool” in the lobby, click the join button next to that

Once you do that you will be in and you can fill out your bracket for your chance to win. This must be completed by Thursday at the latest, but I recommend doing it now.
