The Maple Leafs came out with a big game last night putting together three quick second period goals that put them up 4-0, and we saw a final score of 4-2 with our underdog pick on Tampa Bay not coming through.
We get to enjoy 9 hockey games tonight to go along with the March Madness action that is kicking off. Tonight I’ve found one solid play below…
2 UNIT = New Jersey Devils @ Carolina Hurricanes – HURRICANES TO WIN (-115)
(Note: I’m risking 2.00 units to win 1.74 units)
The New Jersey Devils sit 3rd in the Atlantic division with their 13-11-6 record. They have won just 4 of their 14 road games this season going 4-6-4 on the year. The Hurricanes are 15-12-2 on the year and 7-7 at home. Neither team is coming in here hot, as New Jersey has dropped 3 straight games and Carolina has lost 4 straight. Before losing 4 straight the Hurricanes had won 6 of 7. New Jersey has won just 3 games in their last 13 overall. The Devils are also winless in their last 6 road games. They are getting Martin Brodeur back between the pipes tonight, but I’m not sure that will be enough to get this team going. The Hurricanes are expected to have Dan Ellis in net who is 4-4-1 with a 2.51 GAA and .925 SV%. These two teams have met twice this year with Carolina winning 4-2 in New Jersey and then 6-3 at home on March 9th. The Hurricanes are 9-4 in their last 13 meetings in Carolina with New Jersey. The Devils have really been struggling to win games, and I like Carolina to take advantage tonight at home with a big win at a great price.
