Wednesday: We were in love with the OVER 5 goals in the TB/Ana game but it quickly went up to 5.5 which makes it a no play. The only other play we feel strongly about tonight is the "Away Teams Goals" at +1/2 at -105 odds. This essentially pits ALL away teams vs. ALL home teams in tonight's action. This wager can be found under the NHL "Grand Salami" option at Intertops Sportsbook. They are ROCK solid as they're one of the web's oldest books (since the 90's) and you get a nice signup bonus to boot!

Monday: Tampa Bay/Chicago OVER 5 goals. - 6/8

Thursday: We're passing today and here's why... We have multiple NHL Handicappers that we employ. Our top guy is head and shoulders above the rest with regards to his win/loss record. He does NOT like this game at all. The other guys all like the OVER. We usually only post a play when our best guy is in agreement as his winning percentage is a full 3 points higher than the other guys. There's no need to force the action so we're taking a pass today. It wouldn't surprise us a bit if the game landed on 5 and ends up being a push. - 6/6
