Bruins look to keep Canes winless on season

BOSTON BRUINS (1-2-0, 2 points)

at CAROLINA HURRICANES (0-2-1, 1 point)


Puck drops: Wednesday, 7:30 p.m. EDT
Line: Boston -135, Carolina +115, Total: 5.5

The Bruins look to snap out of an early Stanley Cup hangover when they travel to Raleigh to face the winless Hurricanes on Tuesday night.

Boston has dominated this rivalry, going 10-2 against Carolina over the past three regular seasons, which includes three straight wins at RBC Center. The Canes did, however, get the best of the Bruins in the 2009 postseason—upsetting the top-seeded B’s in a thrilling seven games in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas posted ridiculous numbers against the Hurricanes last season (3-1, 1.75 GAA, .943 SV Pct.), including a shutout in January. And despite a 1-0 loss to the Avalanche on Monday, this works to Boston’s advantage, as the Bruins were 5-1 following a shutout loss last season. Both teams should be hungry to get back on the right track, but expect BOSTON to use steady defense and stellar goaltending to pick up the win on the road.

The FoxSheets provides another trend fading the Hurricanes.

CAROLINA is 26-53 ATS (32.9%, -38.9 Units) first half of the season over the last 3 seasons. The average score was CAROLINA 2.6, OPPONENT 3.4 - (Rating = 1*).

The FoxSheets also likes the UNDER (-130) in this game:

BOSTON is 23-9 UNDER (71.9%, +13.7 Units) in road games first half of the season over the last 2 seasons. The average score was BOSTON 2.7, OPPONENT 2.1 - (Rating = 2*).

The Bruins offense has struggled out of the gate, mustering only five goals in their first three games. It won’t get any easier on Wednesday with C David Krejci (12 goals, 23 points in postseason) out of the lineup with an undisclosed injury. Young centers Tyler Seguin and Brad Marchand lead the B’s with three points apiece, and C Rich Peverly—who signed a three-year contract extension Tuesday—has two goals.

Boston defenseman Joe Corvo (1 assist) returns to Carolina to face his former team for the first time. Corvo had played all but 18 games with the Canes over the last five seasons before signing with the Bruins this summer.

Calder Trophy winner Jeff Skinner wasted no time lighting up the score sheet in his sophomore season, posting one goal and four assists in his first three games. Carolina captain Eric Staal has also chipped in two goals and an assist.

Normally steady goaltender Cam Ward (.923 SV Pct. in 2010-11) is off to a rough start so far, allowing eight goals in his first two starts. The Canes will need Ward to play much better if they have any hopes of competing for a playoff spot this season.

Wednesday’s betting tips: Gallardo stinks vs. Cardinals

Who’s hot

MLB: St. Louis has won 10 of its last 13 home games.

MLB: Detroit has won seven of Rick Porcello’s last nine starts

NHL: Colorado is 30-9-1 in its last 40 meetings with Columbus.

NHL: The under is 3-0 in Boston’s first three games this season.

Who’s not

MLB: Milwaukee is 2-7 in its last nine meetings with St. Louis.

MLB: Texas is 0-5 in Matt Harrison’s last five starts against the Detroit Tigers.

NHL: Vancouver is 5-11 in its last 16 games against Philadelphia.

NHL: Carolina is 5-14 in its last 19 games as an underdog.

Key stat

1 - Milwaukee starter Yovani Gallardo is just 1-7 in his last eight starts against the Cardinals. In those 62 innings of work against St. Louis, he has a 5.66 ERA.

Injury that shouldn’t be overlooked

Detroit Tigers outfielder Delmon Young was scratched from Tuesday's Game 3 of the American League Championship Series against the Texas Rangers. Young was on the original lineup card, but was removed as he deals with his ailing oblique injury. Andy Dirks will replace Young, who went 0-for-4 in Monday's Game 2. The Tigers trail the best-of-seven series 2-0 with Games 3-5 (the fifth if necessary) at Comerica Park.

Game of the day

Milwaukee Brewers at St. Louis Cardinals (-155, 7)

Notable quotable

“Oh, yes I did because that’s what we’re about here at the Raiders. We’re gonna fight, and we’re gonna work, and we go out with a purpose every week to win a football game. There’s no question in my mind those guys are gonna give it everything they had. We’re going to continue to be what I know he would want us to be, which is find a way to become champions.” – Oakland Raiders head coach Hue Jackson said Tuesday on the NFL Network’s Around the League about expecting his team to respond following the death of former owner Al Davis. The Raiders will honor Davis in Sunday’s home game against the Cleveland Browns are currently set as 5.5-point favorites.

Notes and tips

Boston Bruins center David Krejci exited practice on Tuesday with an apparent leg injury at Ristuccia Arena. It was not immediately known how severe the injury is to the 25-year-old Krejci, who plays on the Bruins' top line. However, Krejci didn’t travel with the team to Carolina for Wednesday’s game. Boston is set as a -130 favorite.

Fifth-year senior quarterback Stephen Garcia was dismissed from the South Carolina football team on Tuesday. Athletic director Eric Hyman detailed that Garcia did not meet the agreed-upon guidelines put in place after his fifth suspension. Greenvilleonline.com reported that Garcia failed a substance abuse test last week. Garcia was benched in favor of sophomore Connor Shaw, who threw four touchdowns in a 54-3 triumph over Kentucky on Saturday. Garcia threw for 3,059 yards and 20 touchdowns last season. South Carolina is set as a 3-point favorite at Mississippi State.

Fieldin Culbreth is scheduled to be calling balls and strikes when the visiting Texas Rangers tangle with the Detroit Tigers Wednesday. Culbreth saw home teams go 20-13 during the regular season and the home club has won five of the last six games he has worked.

Texas Tech running back Eric Stephens is sidelined for the remainder of the season after dislocating his left knee. Stephens suffered the injury during last weekend's 45-40 loss to Texas A&M. The junior fell back awkwardly with his leg pinned during a first-and-goal play in the third quarter to sustain the injury. Stephens was averaging 114.0 yards per game prior to the injury and Texas Tech is currently set as a 3-point home favorite to Kansas State this weekend.

    Armadillo: Wednesday's six-pack

    The six most expensive colleges in America, and tuitions:

    6) Northwestern, Evanston, IL $40,223

    5) Washington U, St Louis, $41,892

    4) Chicago U, Chicago $42,041

    3) Wesleyan, Middletown, CT $42,084

    2) Sarah Lawrence, Bronxville, NY $45,212

    1) Columbia, New York City, $45,290


    ***********************


    Armadillo: Wednesday's List of 13: Random mid-week thoughts.......

    13) If you’re not from upstate New York, allow me a minute to digress; an era has ended in Albany broadcasting. John Graney, as fine a talkshow host as there is in this country, hung up his mike last week after 40 years in the business.

    Its too bad he never got to work on a national stage, because he’s every bit as good as anyone who is or has been on that stage. He’s a good guy, too, unlike some of the egotistical nitwits who man the airwaves. John’s show will be missed, for sure. Enjoy your retirement, sir.

    12) Staying local for one last bit, Siena’s basketball game at Iona will be played at Madison Square Garden January 3rd.

    11) What is TCU basketball coach Jim Christian telling his recruits? First of all, the Horned Frogs aren’t any good in Mountain West, then they were moving to deep waters of the faraway Big East, but now, without coming within a year of their first Big East game, they’ve already jumped to the Big 12, whose waters are equally deep but the travel is way easier. Christian is going to have a hard time keeping his job for long in that league, unless he suddenly becomes a bigtime recruiter.

    10) For my handicapping purposes, it’s be great if every league was ten teams and played a home/home series like the Big X is doing this year. Pac-12 isn’t doing it anymore; looks like 12 teams is going to wind up more the norm. Anything is better than 16-team leagues.

    9) When the NBA re-appears, they should re-engineer the whole league. Cut the schedule to 64 teams to create a better product so teams can occasionally practice. Make the playoffs best-of-3 or best-of-5, to create some drama. Cut ticket prices. Make league more middle class friendly, or at least somewhat so. Awful lot of empty seats at these games the last few years. I know, this has zero chance of ever happening.

    8) This will sound silly coming from someone who gets tired driving 26 miles, but do people realize that running a marathon is unhealthy? Its bad for you to run that far all at once- the guy in Greek mythology, who ran the original 26 miles to save the Athenian Army in Battle of Marathon? He dropped dead after finishing his run. A 35-year old fireman in Chicago died running a marathon Sunday. He freakin' died. ‘nuff said.

    7) Since 2001, NFL favorites of more than 7 points are 89-90 vs spread in Games 1-5, 161-200-3 in Games 6-14, 47-49-1 in Games 15-16.

    6) If I managed a big league baseball team, I’d want a staff member monitoring the game on TV, just in case they could pick something up from TV that you couldn’t see from the dugout. Never hurts to have an extra pair of eyes.

    5) Buffalo Bills are already +11 in turnovers; they’ve had a positive ratio in every game so far this season. Want to see how they do in a game when they don’t win the turnover battle.

    4) NFL red flags: Lions have 21 penalties for 169 yards in their last two games……..Texans have been outscored in the second half of every game this season.

    3) Very surprised to read that baseball teams are going to be more vigilant on monitoring the conditioning of their players during the offseason. Guess my surprise is that its necessary- you’d think with the big money these guys make, they’d keep themselves in shape year-round.

    2) If you use trends to handicap the NFL, one of the big obstacles to success is deciding when a team has broken through and rendered their past useless. Looks like the Lions are doing that this season, and the Bills might be too, though still not 100% sold on Buffalo. Detroit is a nasty team with some good offensive weapons. They’re legitimately good.

    1) As always, the real loser in the NBA debacle is the little guy, the beer vendor, waiter, bus driver, limo driver, ticket seller who needs his job to make ends meet, but might lose it because millionaires can’t agree on how to split the pie. Just terrific.

Ice picks: Wednesday's best NHL bet
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Colorado Avalanche at Columbus Blue Jackets (-150, 5.5)

Things were supposed to be different for the Blue Jackets this season after they made some major moves in the offseason.

Jeff Carter was the biggest fish they landed and the club he’ll mesh well with sniper Rick Nash on the first line and top power play unit. Carter has three assists through his first three games with the new club, but the Blue Jackets are still winless after blowing a lead against Vancouver in the third period.

"More than anything, that was three games in four nights for us," coach Scott Arniel said. "We had nothing left in the tank in the third period."

The Blue Jackets were 0 for 5 on the power play Monday and have yet to score on 16 opportunities with the man advantage this season, but their even-strength play has been solid.

Meanwhile, Semyon Varlamov stole a game for the Avalanche by blanking the Bruins on Monday 1-0, but don’t expect that type of effort from him every night. It looks like this Colorado team will struggle offensively.

Pick: Blue Jackets


Vancouver Canucks at Philadelphia Flyers (-130, 5.5)

If the Vancouver Canucks are going to roll through the regular season and make another deep run in the playoffs, they’re going to need their depth players to step up.

They got just that Monday when backup goaltender Cory Schneider stopped a penalty shot in the third period against Columbus that helped propel the team to its first win of the season.

"We're usually a pretty good road team and sometimes it does take us a little bit to get into it," Schneider told reporters after the game. "There were times we were a bit lacklustre. But that's my job - to keep us in it and let us get our feet going. With this team, it might take three periods but we'll get back into it and make it a game.”

Meanwhile, Cody Hodgson and Chris Higgins scored the club’s first two goals before the big guns put the game away in the third on an Alex Burrows power play marker from the Sedin twins.

That’s the kind of win this team needed heading into Philadelphia’s home opener.

Pick: Canucks
