Hockey last night was awesome, going 6-1 to win 4.25 units. Florida started the night in a close game but winning 2-1 in regulation. Edmonton apparently sucks with the empty net, losing on bets that relied on that two games in a row. Leon Draisaitl hit the pipe with 10 seconds left in the game and they missed a few close empty netters as time winded down but can’t be too pissed with the puck line loss on that game as they got outshot 42-22 by one of the worst teams in the show and still won in regulation. Tampa was an easy 6-1 double winner and then to close the night Vegas gave us a sweat. The Golden Knights were cruising for most of the game, before they blew a 4-1 lead going into the 3rd period to allow the Ducks to tie it up 4-4 while Vegas was wearing their ugly looking red reverse “retro” jerseys (even though a four year old franchise doesn’t have “retros”). Zach Whitecloud luckily put one past Ryan Miller with 3:56 left to go though to win in regulation to give us an awesome night. Tonight there’s only two NHL games for Wednesday night hockey, let’s win again on this light slate.
Rangers vs. Bruins (7:00)
The Bruins are the much better team in this matchup and they’re coming off five days rest since they were previously scheduled to play the Sabres their last two games which were postponed cause of Buffalo’s covid issues. The Bruins are relatively cheap on the moneyline tonight, so I’m going with the B’s for 2 units. They’ve had a lot of one goal wins and a good amount of overtime games, so I’m keeping it simple with just the ML tonight.
Canadiens vs. Maple Leafs (7:30)
The top two teams in the North division face off tonight in what should be a fantastic game. In their only game on the opening night of the season, the Leafs won 5-4 in OT. I think this game stays close again and either team could win in what could be the best game so far this season. I’m laying off either side and would lean the over, but at 6.5, I’ll skip it pregame and maybe jump on the over live depending on how the game goes.
2u Bruins ML (-160)
Record: 68-58 (-9.01 units)
