The next interesting game which we found of the daily ice hockey program is going to be from the USA. NHL playoffs challenge between New Jersey Devils and Tampa Bay Lightning. The game will be held in Prudential Center, Newark, USA.
Tampa Bay is:
0-7 in their previous seven encounters when their opponent scores 5 goals or more in their last game.
1-4 their last five games away from home.
New Jersey is:
5-1 in their previous six games after scoring 5 goals or more in their last clash.
9-4 in their previous 13 against the Eastern Conference.
Of course, because we cannot be 100% sure that New Jersey Devils will take this game, although they must do it and the odds for that are not that bad, we looked at the goal market and we saw that the line is just 6 goals. The hosts are scoring lots of goals and it will be almost impossible not to score a goal. Our prediction for that fixture is over 5.5 goals. The odds are pretty good, that is why we will take it.
The next interesting gam4e which we liked and choose to predict is going to be from the USA. NHL action between the teams of New Jersey Devils and Tampa Bay Lightning. Both sides will take a place in Prudential Center, Newark USA.
Tampa Bay Lightning ranked 1st in the league in scoring at 3.54 GPG on the year, while also ranking 12th in shots taken 32.7 SPG and 3rd in power play conversions. At the defensive end of the ice, they were above average this year as they ranked 13th in goals allowed, giving up 2.85 GPG, while also ranking 23rd in shots allowed 32.6 SPG and 28th in penalty kill, allowing teams to convert on 23.8 % of their chances.
After amazing and thrilling game in Boston last night and the correctly predicted over, we are heading to the next game which we will predict and this is the game between New Jersey Devils and San Jose Sharks.
New Jersey Devils are in a good shape as they did some wins in a row. We can say that their winning streak here was surprising but it is high time to be stopped by the very nice team of San Jose which team is in a serie of 4 defeats in a row as three of them were after overtime and they lost very unlucky at the end.
The odds for them to win here in overtime included are pretty good. The classes are different and for us, the team from San Jose is the better and more quality than the Devils. We expect a win for them even in the regular time but we will assure us as we will pick overtime included win for the Sharks.
San Jose Sharks did a fantastic performance last night as they won against Vancouver Canucks with 4-1. Now in our third tip for the new month we will be predicting one more time a game about Calgary Flames.
This time Calgary is playing against New Jersey Devils as they are playing away from home and after the win with 5-1 against Minnesota Wild, we think their winning streak is going to be over and they will lose this game. New Jersey Devils won their last NHL game against Detroit Red Wings. Maybe the break of a few days was good enough for the team from New Jersey and they now can show a really good hockey.
We believe that they are not weaker team than Calgary Flames and the bookies are strongly underestimating them. On these odds we will definitely go for them, moreover they are playing at home and this is always a contributing factor.
We did some wrong tips from the NHL but tonight there is one interesting game between two of the weakest teams in the NHL as the game which we are going to predict is between Vancouver Canucks and New Jersey Devils.
There is no doubt that New Jersey Devils is the bigger name in the hockey of USA but they are struggling in the recent times and they are in a big serie of losses. Vancouver Canucks are a team which is not playing that bad but they are simply not from the class of the other teams.
After all we believe that in this battle in the bottom of the NHL, the Canucks are going to take the game and they are going to do it even with difference. We will see whether this will happen but after the 3 losses in a row, now at home against this opponent it should be different.
After the great and amazing win of Washington Capitals with 5-0 over the unbeaten till tonight team of Columbus Blue Jackets we are heading to the next game which will be between the teams of New Jersey Devils and Toronto Maple Leafs.
Toronto Maple Leafs are in a good shape but in the last round they lost from Washington Capitals after overtime. Actually it was predicted loss as the team won lots of games and it was a high time their winning run to be stopped. New Jersey Devils did some good wins in the past games and we believe that they will try not to stop their streak right now.
They are moreover one good home team and they will use this factor in order to win this game. Maple Leafs are a tough team and we expect them to defend good. It is going to be a poor game but Devils are in the streak and they must make a good performance tonight win one clear win in the regular time, but our pick will be in overtime.
It was again very good game last night between the teams of Anaheim Ducks and Philadelphia Flyers. It was a close game and it finished after the overtime but the good thing is here that Anaheim took the win. Tonight there are not so many games, actually only 2 games but one of them is very good actually for us.
This is the game between New Jersey Devils and Boston Bruins. The away team from Boston is a complete favourite for winning this game, but the home team is getting better and better and very soon they will start making more wins. They won after all against Washington Capitals, away from home. Then at home just after this game, they lost but we believe that the team started believing in themselves and they will be better and better.
Boston Bruins is mixing the games. They have good games and bad games. It will be really tough for them to take this game. Moreover, on these odds we simply cannot miss the chance to bet on the Devils. This season Boston played one game against this team and they won with 2-1 at home, but now away from home they will see the "Devils".
After the break in the NHL the games from this amazing league are back and we are no more going to make predictions from the KHL. The first game which we will predict after the Christmas break is between New Jersey Devils and Pittsburgh Penguins.
It is going to be very risky to make such prediction as we know that Pittsburgh Penguins are one of the most unstable teams right now. But we believe that after the long break of almost 1 week, Penguins had enough time to forget the bad performances in the past few weeks and against the team of New Jersey Devils they will have no problems in winning this game.
Moreover, they are the better team, while New Jersey Devils are among the weakest teams right now. Just before Christmas both teams played one game which finished 4-1 for the Penguins and now we believe they will win second game in a row against the same opponent. The odds are not very high but they are still good to be chased.
Another surprising result from the NHL last night as St.Louis Blues lost their home game from Edmonton Oilers. They lost after overtime and we really do not know how they lost this game. They were terrible in both stages of the game, attack and defense.
Tonight we will try finally to make a correct prediction after were were in a streak of 3 losses in a row. The game which we chose is between New Jersey Devils and Nashville Predators as the home team is playing horrible hockey recently. Nashville Predators are very good and solid team and they are definitely the better team but New Jersey Devils are still looking for the win, moreover, they are playing at home and after this long serie without a win they will try to hit Predators which team had one very tough game last night against Philadelphia Flyers.
In the game against Flyers they won after penalties and after such game we hardly believe that Nashville Predators can take another game. New Jersey Devils are usually a good team at home but we really do not know why they are presenting like this. But on these odds we can try to pick them as our pick. Even from the last head to head games New Jersey took them as the last one from a few weeks ago they took it with 4-5 away from home. At home they should not have problems in taking the win too.
