Maui Classic Semifinals

November 22, 2011

Duke and Michigan will square off tonight in the semifinals of the Maui Classic at 7:00 p.m. Eastern on ESPNU. This is a rematch of a second-round game in last year’s NCAA Tournament when the Blue Devils won a 73-71 decision when Darius Morris’s potential tying bucket at the buzzer was off the mark.

Michigan (4-0 straight up, 1-1 against the spread) stayed undefeated with Monday’s 73-61 win over Memphis as a 4 ½-point underdog. The Wolverines cashed money-line tickets in the plus-180 range (risk $100 to win $180).

Tim Hardaway Jr. was the catalyst for the winners, finishing with 21 points, seven rebounds and five assists. Freshman point guard Trey Burke provided a big lift with 14 points and four assists.

John Beilein’s team has its entire nucleus back with the exception of Morris, who was a second-round pick to the Lakers in the NBA Draft. For our purposes, last year’s Michigan team was one for the ages as it cashed tickets at a 15-1 ATS clip in the last two months of the season.

Hardaway is the star but senior Zach Novak is the team’s leader. Novak makes timely shots, rebounds well, devours loose balls and takes charges galore. Hardaway is a steady scorer that can get his buckets in every conceivable way. He has an excellent shot from 3-point range, can score off the dribble and can post up smaller players.

Duke (5-0 SU, 1-4 ATS) captured a 77-67 win over Tennessee in the opening round, but it failed to cover the number for a third straight game. Austin Rivers scored a game-high 18 points, while Ryan Kelly and Seth Curry scored 17 points apiece.

Mike Krzyzewski’s squad had wins over Belmont (77-76), Presbyterian (96-55), Michigan State (74-69) and Davidson (82-69) before beating the Volunteers, who nonetheless hooked up their backers as 12-point underdogs.

The ‘over’ is 4-1 overall for Duke. The ‘under’ is 1-0-1 for Michigan after its win over Memphis resulted in a push with the total of 134.

As of early this afternoon, most betting shops had Duke installed as a seven-point favorite with a total of 133. The Wolverines are available to win outright for a plus-250 payout (risk $100 to win $250).

UCLA and Kansas will collide in the other semifinal matchup at 9:30 p.m. Eastern on ESPN.

Most spots are listing Kansas (2-1 SU, 1-2 ATS) as an 8 ½-point ‘chalk’ with a total of 141. The Bruins are plus-325 on the money line.

Bill Self’s team won a 67-63 decision over Georgetown early this morning (midnight Eastern tip-off), but the Hoyas took the cash as 5 ½-point underdogs. Thomas Robinson led the Jayhawks with 20 points and 12 rebounds, while Tyshawn Taylor chipped in with 16 points.

UCLA (1-2 SU, 1-2 ATS) had an easier time of it Monday, drilling Chaminade by a 92-60 count as a 13 ½-point favorite. Lazeric Jones led five double-figure scorers with 19 points, seven assists and six rebounds.

Ben Howland’s team was glad to get away from L.A. after dropping its first two games at home by double-digit margins. And UCLA was a double-digit favorite in both contests!

The Bruins lost their opener 69-58 to Loyola-Marymount and then got trounced 86-66 by Middle Tennessee. The ‘over’ is 2-1 for UCLA, cashing in its last two outings.

On the other hand, the ‘under’ is 2-1 for KU.

Memphis is a four-point favorite vs. Tennessee in a loser’s bracket matchup on ESPN2 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern. The total is 145 and the Vols are plus-150 on the money line.

The other consolation contest will pit host Chaminade against Georgetown at 4:30 p.m. Eastern on ESPN2. The Hoyas are favored by 22 and the total is 139 ½.

Mid-Major Report

November 16, 2011

Since 1999 when it advanced to the Elite Eight to begin a 13-year run of NCAA Tournament appearances that’s still alive today, Gonzaga has set the standard when it comes to college basketball success among ‘mid-major’ programs.

But with all due respect to Mark Few’s program, Butler has eclipsed its accomplishments with back-to-back runner-up finishes in the NCAA finals. Also, Virginia Commonwealth made it to the Final Four last season and Davidson got all the way to the 2008 Midwest Regional finals before missing a potential game-winning shot at the buzzer against eventual-champ Kansas.

In other words, we have more teams to discuss than Gonzaga in terms of mid-major contenders. Nevertheless, we’ll start with Few’s bunch that always plays the nation’s most challenging non-conference schedule.

The ‘Zags are off to a 2-0 start with wins over Eastern Washington (77-69) and Washington State (89-81), but they failed to cover the number as double-digit favorites in both contests.

Gonzaga usually uses frequent-flyer miles galore in November and December, but that’s not the case nearly as much this year. The Bulldogs play at Illinois (Dec. 3) and at Xavier on New Year’s Eve, but they’ll take on most of their non-conference slate at home. Teams like Notre Dame (Nov. 30), Michigan St. (Dec. 10), Arizona (Dec. 17) and Butler (Dec. 20) will travel to Spokane.

Butler captured its first win of the year on Nov. 15, knocking off Chattanooga by a 57-46 count as a 13 ½-point home favorite. The Bulldogs fell to 0-2 ATS after also failing to hook up their backers in a season-opening 80-77 overtime loss at Evansville.

Brad Stevens’s squad lost three of its best players in Matt Howard (16.6 points per game), Shelvin Mack (16.0 PPG) and Shawn Vanzant. Andrew Smith, a six-foot 10-inch sophomore center, has all the makings of becoming a premier player. He scored 16 points and pulled down 10 rebounds against the Moccasins.

Another sophomore big man, forward Khyle Marshall, is expecting to make a big jump in 2011-2012 after playing outstanding in last year’s Tournament, especially in the second half against Florida. Chase Stigall, Ronald Nored and Chrishawn Hopkins will often be on the court together to compose a 3-guard lineup.

Nored might be the country’s best on-the-ball defender along the perimeter, but his lack of a perimeter jumper often limits his offensive impact. Stigall is a streaky 3-point shooter that needs to have a big season.

Stevens will lead his team into the following non-conference games: vs. Louisville (Nov. 19), at Indiana (Nov. 27), vs. Xavier (Dec. 7), vs. Purdue (in Indianapolis on Dec. 17), at Gonzaga (Dec. 20) and at Stanford (Dec. 22).

Akron is a team that really caught my eye with its 78-68 win at Mississippi St. as a nine-point underdog. The Zips have all the ingredients needed to pulla first-round upset in the NCAA Tournament. For starters, they have a pair of solid ‘bigs,’ including one of the country’s best shot blockers in Zeke Marshall, who forced Arnett Moultrie into a 2-for-13 shooting performance while swatting away five shots.

Keith Dambrot’s team has experienced guards that take care of the basketball and get after it defensively. He employs a nine-man rotation that includes Xavier transfer Brian Walsh, junior forward Quincy Diggs, who had a team-high 19 points at The Hump, and a pair of impact freshmen in Nick Harney and Demetrius Treadwell.

I think bettors would be wise to keep an eye on the Zips, who will probably be an attractive underdog spot Nov. 28 at West Virginia.

Then again, maybe Akron won’t be too healthy an underdog in Morgantown. We say that because fellow MAC contender, Kent State, beat the Mountaineers by double digits on Nov. 15 as a nine-point road underdog.

Belmont is another school we’ll most likely be reminded of again on Selection Sunday. The Bruins return nine of 11 key players from last year’s 30-win team and they gave Duke a scare in a 77-76 loss at Cameron Indoor Stadium in their season opener. Belmont wasn’t quite as competitive on Nov. 15 when Memphis pulled away late for a 97-81 victory.

Unfortunately for everyone, Belmont doesn’t have anymore attractive games remaining with the possible exception for a BracketBuster matchup in February.

Harvard and Princeton are poised to engage in another memorable fight for the Ivy League’s NCAA bid. The Tigers needed a buzzer-beater in a tiebreaker game to prevent the Crimson from earning its first NCAA bid since 1946.

Harvard returns its entire roster, while Princeton has a new coach in alum Mitch Henderson and eight of its top-10 scorers back.

Tommy Amaker’s squad plays at UConn on Dec. 8 and will try to win at Boston College for a second straight season on Dec. 29. Harvard also hosts St. Joseph’s and George Washington from out of the A-10.

Princeton nearly pulled a stunning first-round upset of Kentucky last year in the NCAA Tourney’s opening round, but it got off to an inauspicious start a few days ago when it lost at home to Wagner by 16. The Tigers’ non-conference slate includes these matchups: at North Carolina St. (Nov. 16), at Rutgers (Dec. 7), at Siena (Dec. 22) and at Florida State (Dec. 30).

**B.E.’s Bonus Nuggets**

--The hot seat for LSU’s Trent Johnson became warmer Nov. 15 when Coastal Carolina won a 71-63 decision over the Tigers. The same can be said for Darrin Horn at South Carolina after losing 58-53 at Elon College.

--Saint Mary’s is another mid-major that’s become prominent in recent years, as Randy Bennett has done an excellent job, particularly with his recruitment of foreign players. The Gaels thumped Northern Iowa, a Sweet 16 team two seasons ago, in one of ESPN’s late-night games during its Tip-Off Marathon.

--UCF second-year head coach Donnie Jones, who held the same post at Marshall and served under Billy Donovan at Florida as an assistant for a decade, has been suspended for the first three games of the season amid an NCAA probe. The same investigation resulted in the resignation of UCF AD Keith Tribble last week.

Preview: Maple Leafs (8-8) at Lightning (6-8)

Date: November 22, 2011 7:30 PM EDT

It hasn't been shot volume that's helped the Tampa Bay Lightning get off to a quick start at home, it's been their accuracy. But when the club is off target and picking up penalties, coach Guy Boucher doesn't expect much from his team.

The Lightning look to rebound from their first home loss in more than a month Tuesday night when they face a Toronto Maple Leafs team that hasn't scored in its last two visits to the St. Pete Times Forum.

The Lightning are averaging just 27.4 shots at home - 2.2 fewer than in 11 road games - but they're scoring 3.13 goals per contest on home ice thanks to an 11.4 shooting percentage that is among the best in the NHL.

Tampa Bay, though, lost 4-2 to New Jersey on Saturday, failing to match the second-longest home winning streak in club history at seven. The Lightning found the back of the net twice on 23 shots, with Martin St. Louis and Ryan Shannon scoring after the club was outshot 20-13 while falling behind 3-0 after 40 minutes.

"This game takes a full team effort," Boucher told the Lightning's official website. "But tonight, we just didn't have enough."

Boucher has also seen enough of his team being a man down at home. The Lightning have been shorthanded 15 times in their last two games on home ice and are averaging 4.75 penalties there compared to 3.81 on the road.

Tampa Bay (9-8-2) is also among the league's worst at home by killing just 76.3 percent of opponents' power plays.

"If we're too stupid to take these types penalties - they're soft penalties, they're lazy penalties, that's the result that we get," Boucher said.

The Lightning, however, have to like their recent results in this matchup after winning all four meetings in 2010-11 by a combined 16-5 for their first season sweep of Toronto.

Tampa Bay posted a pair of home shutouts over the Maple Leafs (11-8-2) last season, with the last coming Jan. 25 when Dwayne Roloson record his 27th career shutout with 26 saves.

Toronto has gone 135 minutes, 42 seconds without finding the back of the net in Tampa.

Phil Kessel has just one assist in four games visiting the Lightning since joining the Maple Leafs in 2009, but the right wing leads the league with 16 goals and has 29 points.

Kessel scored two third-period goals in a 3-2 loss at Carolina on Sunday as Toronto fell for the sixth time in eight games.

"We had our chances but couldn't find a way to finish," coach Ron Wilson said.

Joffrey Lupul, among the league leaders with 25 points, could help the Maple Leafs snap a three-game road skid in this matchup as he tries to extend his point streak against Tampa Bay to six. Lupul has a goal and five assists during this stretch after setting up a score in a 6-2 home loss March 14.

Jonas Gustavsson made just one start against the Lightning last season - a 4-3 overtime home loss Nov. 30 when he turned aside 35 shots - but he should be in net for this matchup after rookie Ben Scrivens suffered his fourth consecutive loss Sunday.

Gustavsson is 1-0-3 with a 2.92 goals-against average in four starts versus Tampa Bay.

The Maple Leafs' last three-game road losing streak was an 0-5-0 stretch Jan. 13-Feb. 5.

Tampa Bay is 11-1-3 against Toronto since losing six in a row in this matchup.

Preview: Kings (7-7) at Blues (9-7)

Date: November 22, 2011 7:30 PM EDT

Though the St. Louis Blues failed to record their longest winning streak of the season their last time out, they haven't lost in regulation since Ken Hitchcock took over as coach.

They'll look to extend that streak Tuesday night and continue their dominant play at home when they face the Los Angeles Kings, who broke a seven-game losing streak in the series in the first meeting of the season.

The Blues (10-7-2) couldn't hold a late one-goal lead at Minnesota on Saturday, allowing Mikko Koivu's power-play goal with 1:38 to play and falling 3-2 in a shootout. St. Louis was trying for a season-best fourth straight victory, but failed despite a 30-save effort from Jaroslav Halak.

"He was stellar in net. We should've got the win for him,' defenseman Barret Jackman said.

Despite the loss, the Blues are 4-0-2 under Hitchcock and have climbed within two points of second place in the Central Division. Koivu's goal was the first allowed by the Blues in the second or third periods in six games.

St. Louis has given up eight goals in those six contests under Hitchcock after allowing 35 in 13 games under the fired Davis Payne. The Blues' road struggles continued Saturday as they dropped their fourth straight away from the Scottrade Center, but they're 7-1-1 at home and have won three in a row there.

Los Angeles (10-7-3) also came into its last game on a roll, having won three in a row, but the Kings will be looking to bounce back from a disheartening 4-1 loss to Detroit on Saturday. Mike Richards opened the scoring with a short-handed tally at 6:37 of the first period, but the Red Wings mostly dominated throughout, outshooting Los Angeles 30-15 in the first two periods.

"That was maybe the one thing that disappointed me as much as anything in the game, is that we were not skating anywhere near the way we skated in the last three games," Kings coach Terry Murray said. "They recognized it and they took advantage of us.'

Murray's team emphatically ended its seven-game skid to St. Louis on Oct. 18 with a 5-0 win behind 27 saves from Jonathan Quick and two goals and an assist from Simon Gagne. Los Angeles, though, has dropped three in a row at St. Louis and has gone 4-12-1 in its last 17 there.

Quick was in net for each of Los Angeles' seven consecutive losses in the series before earning his first shutout versus the Blues on Oct. 18. Halak came into last month's matchup 5-0-0 with a 1.00 goals-against average against the Kings, but was pulled early in the second period after giving up four goals on 18 shots.

Halak and his teammates will try to cool down Richards, who has six goals in his last seven games. St. Louis right wing David Backes has three goals and an assist in the last two contests.

Los Angeles ended a three-game road losing streak by beating Anaheim 5-3 on Thursday. The Kings are 4-2-2 away from home.

Preview: Oilers (9-8) at Predators (9-5)

Date: November 22, 2011 8:00 PM EDT

It's already been a successful homestand for the Nashville Predators, who hope they can stay healthy for a while now that one of their top producers is back.

The Predators finish their five-game homestand Tuesday night when they face an Edmonton Oilers club that's struggling on the road.

After missing four games with an upper-body injury, David Legwand returned Saturday night and had an assist in Nashville's 4-3 overtime loss to Columbus. Legwand's 15 points tie him with rookie Craig Smith for the team lead.

"I felt pretty good," he told the Predators' official website. "You always have some nerves in your first game back, but it was good."

In addition to Legwand, Sergei Kostitsyn, Mike Fisher and Martin Erat have all missed time this season due to injuries. All are now back on the ice.

"For the most part, we're pretty healthy," coach Barry Trotz told the Predators' official website. "It's been awhile."

With its health improving, Nashville (10-5-4) has earned six of a possible eight points thus far on the homestand, going 2-0-2.

Nick Spaling's goal with 5:36 remaining tied Saturday's game to force overtime. Colin Wilson and Fisher also scored for the Predators, who gave up an uncharacteristic two power-play goals after they entered the game having killed off 65 of 74 (87.8 percent) opponent power-play chances.

Top Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne is 7-3-1 with a 2.77 GAA in his career against the Oilers, but took a 3-1 loss Oct. 17 in Edmonton, allowing all three goals in the third period.

The Oilers (10-8-2), though, have dropped five of six following a 9-3-2 start as they deal with injury concerns of their own.

Edmonton routed Chicago 9-2 on Saturday, but failed to build on the momentum Monday and managed just 18 shots on net during a 4-1 loss to Dallas - its fourth straight road defeat.

Rookie Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, who had five assists in the win over the Blackhawks, scored his eighth goal for the Oilers' only tally, but goalies Nikolai Khabibulin couldn't overcome a depleted blue line and a stagnant offense. Edmonton went 0 for 6 on the power play.

Forward Sam Gagner (back) and defensemen Andy Sutton (groin), Ryan Whitney (knee) and Cam Barker (ankle) all missed the loss to the Stars, making it difficult for Edmonton to counter Dallas' physical play.

"With our assets, there are ways to beat teams that want to come at us like that," coach Tom Renney said. "We have to be as physical as we possibly can. When we're healthy we have enough to push back."

Edmonton has been outscored 24-9 in its last five defeats.

Nugent-Hopkins, who had an assist the last time these teams met, leads NHL rookies with 20 points. Smith ranks second.

The Predators begin a five-game road trip Wednesday at Minnesota.

Blues look to stay hot hosting Kings

LOS ANGELES KINGS (10-7-3, 23 points)

at ST. LOUIS BLUES (10-7-2, 22 points)


Puck drops: Tuesday, 7:30 p.m. EDT
Line: St. Louis -140, Los Angeles +120, Total: 5

Many say mid-season coaching changes can do wonders to spark a dormant team, and if you ask any hockey fan in St. Louis, they would certainly agree. On Tuesday night, the Blues look to improve upon their 4-0-2 record under new coach Ken Hitchcock when the L.A. Kings arrive in town.

In the first meeting between these two clubs on October 18, L.A. shut out St. Louis in a 5-0 rout. The Kings—who are an impressive 4-2-2 on the road—had won three in a row before a disappointing 4-1 loss to Detroit on Saturday. Because L.A. is on the first leg of back-to-back games, backup goaltender Jonathan Bernier (1-2-0, 3.37 GAA, .876 SV Pct.) will be in net on Tuesday for just his fourth start of the season. In his only matchup with St. Louis—as a 19-year-old—Bernier dropped a 5-3 decision back in 2007. Jaroslav Halak (3-6-2, 2.52 GAA, .895 SV Pct.) will be in goal for the Blues. Despite Halak’s rocky start to the year, his career numbers against the Kings are nothing short of sensational (5-1-0, 1.76 GAA, .933 SV Pct., 1 SO). However, that lone loss happened to be the 5-0 defeat this season, where he allowed four goals before getting pulled. With both teams within striking distance of arguably the two deepest divisions in hockey, this game should be extremely tight checking and about as close to a toss-up as you will find. The slight edge, from a betting perspective, should go to LOS ANGELES because of its stellar road record and the favorable odds it is receiving.

This rare 3-starFoxSheets trend also favors the Kings:

ST. LOUIS is 3-13 ATS (18.8%, -11.8 Units) after having won 3 of their last 4 games over the last 2 seasons. The average score was ST LOUIS 2.6, OPPONENT 3.3 - (Rating = 3*).

Despite the blockbuster deal that landed C Mike Richards (8 G, 8 A), the Kings offense has struggled mightily this season, averaging just 2.4 goals per game (25th in NHL). C Anze Kopitar (9 G, 14 A) leads all scorers for L.A. and reliable wingers Justin Williams (3 G, 12 A), Simon Gagne (7 G, 6 A) and Dustin Brown (4 G, 9 A) have also played their part. But an apparent lack of depth on the third and fourth lines has severely hampered this Kings squad so far.

L.A.’s back line is still one of the strongest in the NHL—allowing just 2.3 goals per game (8th in NHL). Jack Johnson (4 G, 5 A) leads all Kings blueliners in scoring and Matt Greene is tied for second among NHL defensemen in total hits (59). The Kings need more offensive production out of former Norris Trophy finalist Drew Doughty (2 G, 5 A)—arguably the team’s most important player.

The Blues have also struggled to score goals at a high clip this season, averaging 2.5 goals per game (19th in NHL), and they feature only four players with 10+ points. LW Alexander Steen (7 G, 6 A) and T.J. Oshie (6 G, 7 A) lead the Blues with 13 points apiece with C David Backes (7 G, 5 A) not too far behind. Power forward Chris Stewart (3 G, 2 A) will miss Tuesday’s game as he serves out a three-game suspension for an illegal hit.

Young puck-moving defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk (2 G, 10 A) has led a stingy back line that ranks fourth in the NHL in goals allowed (2.2). Carlo Colaiacovo, Alex Pietrangelo and Barret Jackman round out this deep blueline that features a great mix of offensive firepower and physicality.

Ice picks: Tuesday's best NHL bets
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Los Angeles Kings at St. Louis Blues (-130, 5)

The St. Louis Blues caught some flack for dumping Davis Payne in favor of Ken Hitchcock so early this season but it seems to have lit a spark under the club.

The Blues haven’t lost in regulation since Hitchcock took over, though they were hardly satisfied with Saturday’s 3-2 shootout loss to Minnesota. St. Louis gave up a shorthanded goal to Mikko Koivu and couldn’t hold a 2-1 lead in the third period but picking up another point has them in the thick of the race in the Central division.

"We've been able to respond to the challenge," Hitchcock told reporters. "We haven't been overwhelmed by the challenge that's there. We've gotten really pushed hard by some awful good teams and the one thing we've been able to do is respond to the challenge.”

Hitchcock doesn’t let anything slide and he’ll have the Blues ready for this one.

Pick: Blues


Toronto Maple Leafs at Tampa Bay Lightning (-150, 5.5)

The Tampa Bay Lightning normally don’t have many issues on offense. Their problems normally stem from a lack of depth on the back end.

They have dropped three of their last four, but Victor Hedman is back on the blue line and veteran Mattias Ohlund may not be far behind as he rehabs from arthroscopic knee surgery.

"We know that on defense it's been very tough for us since the beginning of the year, and on the road we have been exposed and one of the big reasons is that we have played without Ohlund," coach Guy Boucher told reporters. "He plays against the first lines, he brings physicality, he's smart and top lines don't like to play against him because they know they could get knocked down at any moment.”

Until they have him back, Tampa will continue to struggle in its own zone.

Pick: Over

Pucking the trends: This week's best NHL bets
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

HOT TEAM: Minnesota Wild

They still play tight defense, they can still slow it down with the best of them, and they still have solid goaltending, all staples of the original Wild under coach Jacques Lemaire.

But this version has some serious star power, and can score a little bit too. Under new coach Mike Yeo, the Wild have won eight of their last 10 games, and will take a four-game winning streak into Wednesday’s tilt versus Nashville.

The numbers aren’t great from the high-priced players, but when you win, and fill seats, that’s really all that matters, and both have been the case in Minnesota. Dany Heatley has five goals and 12 points, Devin Setoguchi has six and 10, and Mikko Koivu finally broke out on Saturday with two goals vs. St. Louis, and now has 10 points on the season.

It all adds up to a deep set of forwards in the Western Conference, and when you have a decent tandem in net -- like the Wild do in Niklas Backstrom (7-4-2, 1.97 goals-against average) and Josh Harding (5-1-1, 1.79) -- you’re going to win your fair share of games.

And keep Minnesota on your radar this week, as they open a four-game homestand, after three days off. Starting Wednesday, they will play the Predators, Oilers, Flames and Lightning in a six-day span, but all of them will be in St. Paul.

COLD TEAM: New York Islanders

There was definitely some preseason buzz around the Islanders headed into what appeared to be a season of promise. Their young goal scorers up front -- John Tavares, Michael Grabner, and Matt Moulson -- were coming off breakout seasons, and workhorse defenseman Mark Streit was healthy again after missing last year.

Indeed, it looked like a postseason berth might be in the cards.

Well, the best laid plans? Not so much. Streit is a minus-13, Kyle Okposo, who has yet to score a goal, has been a healthy scratch of late, and the Islanders have lost five of the last six games headed into Monday’s contest versus Pittsburgh.
New York is just 2-6 in November, and on Saturday, the Islanders were blown out on home ice, dropping a 6-0 decision to surging Boston.

OVER PLAY: Chicago Blackhawks

A little weekend hiccup in Western Canada, versus Calgary and Edmonton on back to back nights, notwithstanding, Chicago has it rolling again this season, and appears very much like it intends to make some noise in the postseason yet again.

At the apex of the surge has been the names you’d expect on the scoring sheet. Jonathan Toews, Marian Hossa, Patrick Kane and Patrick Sharp have lived up to billing with 10, nine, seven and seven goals, respectively.

And as a result, the Blackhawks have become a fairly reasonable over buy. In fact, Chicago will take a four-game over streak into Wednesday’s tilt versus San Jose, and in the last nine Blackhawks games, seven have been pushed past the total.

Of course, inconsistent goaltending helps the cause when it comes to overs, and Chicago, too, has delivered there, as well. Saturday against Edmonton was a perfect example. The Blackhawks had no answers, and nowhere to turn in net, as Ray Emery and Corey Crawford combined to make just 25 saves, while allowing nine goals. Ouch.

UNDER PLAY: Dallas Stars

Goaltender Kari Lehtonen has calmed down a bit, but he still has some decent numbers. With an 11-4 mark, and a 2.44 goals-against average, he has still helped Dallas to the label of one of the better under plays out there.

His backup, Andrew Raycroft, hasn’t been great, though, posting an 0-4 mark with a 3.55 goals-against. But either way, Dallas has still managed consecutive unders and three in the last five games as the Stars prepare to take on Edmonton on Monday night.

Of course, it helps the cause when you can’t score, and that’s the funk Dallas is in right now. Consider the last five games. In four of them, the Stars scored two goals or less. And in two of them, they were shut out.

SURVEYING THE SCHEDULE

** The Columbus Blue Jackets won a game Saturday. That’s No. 4 on the year, and believe it or not, they’re actually on a 2-2 run. Keep them in your sights this week, though, as they play three games in five days through the holiday, starting with Monday against Calgary.

** The Penguins, still without injured center Sidney Crosby, will be a busy bunch, too. On Monday, a home game against the Islanders begins a stretch of four games in six days through the holiday weekend, three of which are at home.
