Original Six Match-Up Highlight’s Wednesday’s NHL Action
After a nice win with Colorado last night (3-0) we’ll look to continue our winning ways by focusing on a match-up that’s been going on since the mid-1920’s as the Boston Bruins look to add to their league high total in points when they host the Montreal Canadians at TD Gardens.
The Bruins have had a few days to sit and stew about their loss to the league worst Detroit Red Wings on Sunday afternoon but going against their longtime rivals on home ice you can figure the B’s to be focused and ready for a big game. The all-time regular season series record between these longtime rivals stands in the Hab’s favor with a record of 363-273-103-10. That’s a hell of a lot games between these Original Sixer’s!
Boston boasts an impressive home ice mark of 19-2-4-5 this year and goalie Tukka Rask who will be in the net tonight has yet to lose a game in regulation at TD Garden this year posting a record of 12-0-6. Rask has split a pair of decisions vs Montreal this season while allowing six goals to the Hab’s.
Prior to the clunker in Detroit on Sunday, Boston had won six straight while outscoring their rivals by a count of 21-7. Meanwhile, the Canadiens saw their three game winning streak halted on Monday as Arizona knocked them off 3-2. The Hab’s currently are on the outside looking in right now seven points out of third in the Atlantic Division and eight points out of the second wild card spot as they play five of the next six games on the road.
NHL Bets for 2-12-2020
The B’s should be focused on the task at hand tonight and given that impressive home record I will be backing the BOSTON BRUINS -.5 (-135) Regulation.
I’m going to add a second play tonight on the CALGARY FLAMES -135 vs the Los Angeles Kings.
I don’t know how many times I’ve sworn off betting on Calgary this year and last but here we go again as there are just too many good angles to pass up in this match-up.
The Flames have been true “road warriors” this season taking 25 of a possible 32 points in their last 16 games away from the Scotiabank Saddledome. Meanwhile the Kings return home after losing four straight on the road and I always love playing against a team returning home from a cross country journey of four games or more. The Kings have posted a dismal home mark of 11-12-1 in the Staples Center this year. The have lost nine of their last 10 overall and five in a row on home ice.
The cellar dwelling Kings have been outscored 19-7 during their current five game losing streak and are second to last in the league with a paltry 2.40 goals per game.
Calgary has netted six goals in each of their last two games and their firepower appears to be too much for the Kings right now. Take CALGARY -135 to beat the LA Kings.
