We went 1-2 last night. We hit our afternoon play on the Pens to win in regulation as they scored two third period goals for a 2-0 victory. The Canucks allowed 4 quick first period goals on the way to a 4-0 loss in Edmonton. We picked San Jose in regulation time, but it took them shootout to beat the Coyotes at home.
We’ve got a couple games going here on Sunday, including a great afternoon match up between the Hawks and Wings. My pick is coming in a later game.
Usually on Sunday’s I won’t have a write up but today I will include one. I leave for Detroit tonight tonight and then fly out of Detroit to Florida early tomorrow morning, so I may or may not have a write up with tomorrow’s pick(s). I have wifi at the place I’m staying at so things should resume like normal from then on out. Ok tonight’s pick…
2 UNIT = Los Angeles Kings @ Dallas Stars – STARS TO WIN (+101)
(Note: I’m risking 2.00 units to win 2.02 units)
The Los Angeles Kings are 19-12-3 on the year, but just 7-8-2 on the road this season. They are coming off a 4-3 shootout loss last night in Minnesota, and will be playing in their 4th straight road game tonight. It will be a quick turn around for the Kings with last night’s game an 8:00 PM EST start and today’s a 6:00 PM EST start. The Kings had played three playoff teams this week leading up to this game (Chicago, St Louis, Minnesota) and tonight’s game in Dallas seems to be a let down spot for the Kings. Dallas is 16-14-3 on the year, and 8-7-2 at home. They are coming off a 5-3 home win vs Minnesota, making them 3-1 in their last 4 games. One of those wins was a 2-0 victory in Los Angeles. The Stars are actually 2-0 against the Kings this season with both games being played in Los Angeles. Dallas is 4-1 in their last 5 meetings with the Kings. This should be a good spot for the Stars behind Kari Lehtonen who had a 40 save shutout last time these two teams last week. I’ll take the Stars as home underdogs vs the Kings on less than 24 hours rest.
