Last night had the 1-1 split with the Calgary Flames losing in the third to Toronto and Arizona getting a three-goal lead in the first and holding onto it. The Coyotes win makes four straight progression hits since my last loss on the Jets hosting Toronto.

We got a full card coming up for the first time in what seems like a week. The Sabres play perhaps the other weakest team in their division, so is it possible for the worst-performing team in the league to maybe lick their lips here? The other thing that will come in to affect performance this week is the looming trade deadline. Last week, the Canadian federal government announced they were reducing the quarantine restrictions on players entering the country. The hope is it will not leave the seven clubs north of the border out in the cold when it comes to wheelin’ and dealin’ players for a Cup run.

The first big name to benefit from this was Staal entering the Habs roster. He made his presence felt with an immediate overtime winner against the Oilers last night! The North division really needed that support from Ottawa to ensure that beyond their second-round bubble playoffs that they remain competitive with the much deeper teams in the league.

NHL totals will be up same time as always!

Always risking 1u, never ‘to win’ 1u. If I expose two, that still remains risking 2u, not betting 2.5 to win 1 simply because the price is shorter than what I have. A standard stake here is 1u = 1% of your bankroll. This will keep you in the game instead of busting out every other day because you decided to be stupid and put your entire bankroll down on 8 wagers. If you have worse prices don’t bet more to compensate. Please do not attach my plays in parlays, you are costing yourself extra money trying to cut corners.
