Another profiting night last night, albeit a small profit. We hit our underdog pick with the Lightning as they won 2-1 in New York, and looked good with our underdog pick of the Leafs, but they blew at 2-0 lead in the third to lose 3-2 in OT.
Today is the NHL trade deadline day and we only have 2 games on the NHL board. Trades are rather slow so far as I type this article, but I am sure some trades will start heating up as we get closer to the deadline.

NHL Betting Picks for Monday, February 28th:
Chicago Blackhawks @ Minnesota Wild – WILD TO WIN (+102) – These two teams have both won 33 games coming into tonight’s meeting. The Blackhawks have won 4 straight, including a shootout victory at home against the Coyotes last night. The Wild enjoyed Saturday and Sunday off after a 3-2 OT victory in Anaheim on Friday night. Although just 6-4 in their last 10 games, the Wild losses have come to solid teams (Kings, Wings, Canucks and the Blackhawks on February 16th in Chicago). A weird trend to look at – the Blackhawks are 2-6 in their last 8 games as a small favorite of -110 to -150. Note that the Wild are 6-2 in their last 8 home games and 76-31 in their last 107 home games vs a team with a losing road record. Although not confirmed, Turco is the lean in net tonight. Marty Turco has a 3.08 GAA and .897 SV% on the year. Backstrom is 13-8-3 at home with a .927 SV% on the year. Chicago has taken 2 of the 3 meetings between these teams this season, including their meeting in Minnesota in late October. I like the WILD getting revenge tonight as they get the underdog tag.
