1-1 yesterday for no losses, no profits. We hit our pick on Nashville, but our big underdog pick on the Devils didn’t come through. New Jersey kept it tight, but a late empty net goal for the Rangers sealed the victory.
Exciting night tonight, as I have a “Game of the Month” 5 unit play going. This is sent to clients only (click here to become a client).
I also have a 1 unit play going below as well…
5 UNIT GAME OF THE MONTH = CLIENTS ONLY
1 UNIT = Montreal Canadiens @ Tampa Bay Lightning – LIGHTNING TO WIN (-112)
(Note: I’m risking 1.12 units to win 1 unit)
The Canadiens who have lost 4 straight and 6 of their last 7 games were a little more quiet on trade deadline day then most would have thought, but they did unload Andrei Kostitsyn who had been one of the key pieces to the Habs team. Will Kostitsyn, Gill, and Cammalleri gone the Habs will look to some younger players for the rest of the season. Montreal is just 24-29-10 on the season and 13-15-2 on the road. The Tampa Bay Lightning were one of the biggest trade deadline participants acquiring three defenceman. The Lightning are 28-28-6 on the season, but have played well to a 18-9-2 record on home ice. Mathieu Garon, who has been the much better of the two Lightning goalies, is the confirmed starter for tonight’s game. Tampa Bay has won 7 of their last 10 home games, including three straight. These two teams have met twice this season, each taking a game at home. Note that the Habs have won just 8 of their last 26 games as an underdog. Both teams will have a new look to their lineups, and I think that the Lightning will be more comfortable playing on home ice. The Habs have scored just 4 goals in their last 4 games and I can’t see them outscoring Tampa tonight. Take the Lightning.
