I like Vancouver tonight at home plus money. I also don't see anyone scoring in this game so I'm also going under 5! Two hard working defensive teams I could easily see a 2-1 or 3-1 Vancouver win. You can bet Vancouver to win in regulation +1.17 or you can bet on the outcome including the shootout +1.15. Luongo is one of the best breakaway goalies in the world so I'd gladly give up the 0.02 and take my chances in the shootout. Not to mention the fact that Vancouver does boast some solid snipers in the shootout.

I agree with Vancouver being a little better offensively when it comes to talent for a shootout, but I can absolutely guarantee you that most NHL players will tell you that no one is better than Marty Turco on a penalty shot...

You might end up winning this bet, but I think it was a big mistake. A friend of mine actually took Boston and had this to say:On Saturday night we mentioned that they Thrashers were in the midst of a grueling schedule and that they’re chances of winning on the Island were not very good at all. Well, they won, 4-, however, it wasn’t because they were sharp. The Thrashers were flat but the Islanders were even flatter. In fact, Atlanta managed just nine shots on net in the final two periods and just 18 for the entire game. Now the Thrashers travel home to make this their ninth game in 14 nights and every game during that stretch they’ve had to board a plane to get to their next destination. This is a tired hockey team that has been lethargic its past two games and we don’t see that changing here. The Bruins came up with a big finish in their last game, scoring in the final minute to tie it and than scoring in OT to win it. Bruins have picked up points in three consecutive games (two wins and a shootout loss), beating Ottawa and Tampa and losing a shootout to the Sabres.
I like your friend's thought process. That's why sports are so interesting, you can look at a game from a million different angles and can make a case for either side. Most teams board a plane after every game though so they're all in the same boat (errr plane). If it were all bus travel and coast to coast games then I could see the travel implications. But you are probably right, there was more value in the Bruins tonight.

Not sure if you'd know, but is 4 AHL teams in one season a record?

Sadly my cousins career came to an abrupt end actually part of the reason they wear visors in the AHL now. Jordan Smith he played defence for the pirates and took a puck in the eye while boxing a guy out in the defensive zone. He lost his eye and his career in his first season.

It's funny, the only bet I took that I wasn't in love with was the Leaf game, and they came up big. I wasn't going to take that, but they were FLYING at morning skate today. And Ovechkin I figure is just like your theory on Afinogenov.... he scores in bunches... and he is a little hurt, so I thought I might sneak that one in on a good pay line..

First of all, you have a number in that that doesn't make sense. You either bet the straight money line, or the goal/money line. For example, you have Was +0.5 -1.16 OR you can bet on Washington +1.40. Make sense? Also, did you bet including OT or in regulation? I'll assume you chose regulation and goallines:Washington +0.5 -1.16 (win $500)Tampa Bay +0.5 -1.46 (win $500) Did Toronto go over? If so, you win $500 x $1.23= $615

I'm starting to feel like a genius now, lol. I could just see a 2-1 final in my head in this game. Dallas might end up winning, but I still loved my value here. If things start to go this well consistently I'll be quitting poker.
