Quick Ones

Only a small handful of games to choose from tonight but I

Caps +150 at Flyers -170 - Over 6 -115

Game of the night by far. Two of the hottest teams in the NHL square off in what hopefully will be a sneak preview of a playoff matchup to come. I take the under dog just because it seems nuts to take the Flyers at -170 in this matchup. Over 6 seems plausible as well.

Result: Caps nearly blow a 4-1 lead but ultimately come out on top of the Flyers 4-3.

Blackhawks +105 at Oilers -125

Oilers are coming off a big win against the Flames and while losing Horcoff, their leading scorer, is difficult to overcome they seem to be finding a bit of a stride. They should win at home.

Result: Oilers allow 41 shots on goal by the Blackhawks, but Garon handles all but one of them and leads Edmonton to a steal of a victory, 4-1.

Devils -115 at Sabres -105

The Sabres should be securely in the playoffs but a 10-game slide mid-season has them on the outside looking in and I think they'll have to keep looking after the Devils beat them on their home ice tonight.

Result: New Jersey ties the game 2-2 early in the third period and the game would stay that way until Buffalo was able to break out of their shootout funk and win 3-2.
