Some pretty interesting third periods ran last night. The Lightning and Flyers both did some decimating to come through on the puckline and team total respectively. The ‘fresh’ Canucks followed up their big two wins over the best team in the division with a bagelled stinker against the division’s worst, Ottawa Senators. What a contrast a game like that is from back in January where Vancouver is outscoring them by four or five straight. Well, we just need one W to close out that progression and a couple more chances to do it.

The Blues ran to a push on the 6.0 and we split the two 5.5 totals. That was one of the Red Wings more impressive showings of the season. Or contrarily, clearly one of Dallas’ worst against a team of Detroit’s… calibre?A reminder that the total was a 5.5 heavily juiced under to the point a 5.0 was seen at a lot of places in the early afternoon yesterday. Actually had some relatively normal line movement around my positions yesterday.

No new progressions qualified for tonight, but do have a couple flat wagers. The Flames really just have must-wins from here on. The Habs need only to not have a monumental collapse to maintain their position. In the East, I am getting involved again but this time to see a few more in the net.

*The picks reflect the line at the moment the writer made the play on BetOnline (visit our BetOnline Review) Since the lines might vary, don’t forget to refer back to our NHL odds.


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.
