    [B][I]Best and Worst Bets
    November 29, 2017[/I][/B]

    [B]BEST NHL BETS[/B]

    The only two teams that you can bet on frequently without concern are the Tampa Bay Lightning and St. Louis Blues. You could probably sell me on Nashville and the Devils in that conversation as well.

    However, finding other strong bets is getting harder as we hit the meat grinding portion of the season. Be patient – we’re still trying to figure out who’s who in the NHL. These are four teams you should keep your fingers on the pulse of, and one bet-off team for good measure.

    [B]Washington Capitals (14-10-1)[/B]
    We’ve avoided featuring the Capitals in this space for the balance of the season because they’re a tough team to gauge. Ovechkin isn’t slumping, but he isn’t surging. Evgeny Kuznetsov leads the team with 26 points and is dynamite in a bottle. What’s paralyzed us is their point differential, which stands at a meager -0.1 for the year.

    So why consider them as a bet? Well for starters, they’ve compiled a nice 4-1 SU stretch over their last five games which included trouncing Toronto and Tampa Bay. The other part? They have a week’s worth of games at home where they’re a comfortable 8-4 SU overall.

    The Capitals grade out as a wobbly streaking team, meaning that they’ll go on stretches where they win far more games with a loss here or there. After building a three-game breeze in their last few outings, they’ll be a hot team to bank on at home. Value is tough here since they sort of grade out as a public team, but Washington should be a solid play or parlay stuffer while they ride momentum.

    If their hotness peters out over the weekend, then jump ship.

    Next Games: vs. LA (11/3), vs. Columbus (12/2), vs. San Jose (12/4), vs. Chicago (12/6), vs. NYR (12/8)

    [B]Winnipeg Jets (15-6-3-0)[/B]
    The Jets have had some weird mishaps on the road, but get to feast on the Colorado Avalanche tonight so that should be par for the proverbial course. Blake Wheelers has been a monster for this team, pushing his enormous frame around the rink and rifling off a team-leading 71 shots this season. He has 28 points overall this season and is helping set the tone for a Jets team that has become as competitive as anyone else recently. Ride the wave, even if you take a couple bumps along the way. They have a very soft schedule coming up.

    Next Game: at Colorado (11/29), vs. Vegas (12/1), vs. Ottawa (12/3), at Detroit (12/5), at Florida (12/7)

    [B]San Jose Sharks (13-8-1-1)[/B]
    Where the Sharks have value is on the road, where they’re 6-2-1-0 on the season. They have three roadies within the span of four days, so it’s a bit tight, but that’s going to mean the chance for value. Nobody rates the Sharks that highly. However, they recently beat the Kings away and lost in overtime to the Knights. It’s a tough east coast road trip on the schedule, but worth the risk given the value you’re bound to see in the NHL sportsbook.

    Next Games: at Florida (12/1), at Tampa (12/2), at Washington (12/4), vs. Carolina (12/7)

    [B]“BIG MAYBE” – New York Islanders (15-7-1-1)[/B]
    The Islanders have never lost at home in regulation, but this next slate could really help define them. At an even 7-7 SU when travelling, the Panthers hit the road against four substantial clubs over the next week or so. Tampa Bay is inarguably the best team in the league right now, but Pittsburgh and Boston are both limping and Florida is up-and-down. This next stretch could solidify the Islanders as a true contender and I’m willing to bet to find out.

    Next Games: vs. Ottawa (12/1), at Florida (12/4), at Tampa (12/5), at Pittsburgh (12/7)

    [B]“HARD NO” – Vancouver Canucks (11-10-2-2)[/B]
    The last time the Canucks were featured in this space, they were a definitive bet-on team. And we rode that streak pretty hard…until it ended in a bad way. The Canucks are now a brutal 3-7 SU in their last 10 games and face a prohibitive murderer’s row through the weekend. Games against Nashville and Toronto will have their backs against the wall. You should not be betting on Vancouver for any reason, and do not be tempted by their mini homestand over the course of the week. Vancouver simply can’t score enough goals to stay in contention.

    Next Games: at Nashville (11/30), vs. Toronto (12/2), vs. Carolina (12/5), vs. Philadelphia (12/7)

    [B][I]NHL roundup: Oilers’ Russell knocks in game-winner for Leafs
    December 1, 2017[/I][/B]

    EDMONTON, Alberta — Edmonton’s Kris Russell scored a goal for the Oilers, then he scored his second of the night. But the latter was for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

    With the score tied 4-4 and 1:05 left on the clock, Russell tried to clear the puck behind his net, and ended up rifling it through the legs of Oilers goalie Laurent Brossoit. The own goal — credited to the Leafs’ Patrick Marleau — was the decider as the Leafs went on to win 6-4, with Nazem Kadri adding an empty netter.

    Russell has scored early in the third period to tie the game 4-4.

    Mark Letestu had three points for the Oilers, William Nylander had three points for the Leafs.

    Oilers captain Connor McDavid, the reigning MVP, got a goal, and Leafs star Auston Matthews had a goal and assist.

    Brossoit was starting in place of Cam Talbot, who was placed on injured reserve Thursday morning.

    [B]Canucks 5, Predators 3[/B]

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Daniel Sedin scored his 1,000th career point with a game-tying power-play goal, and rookie Brock Boeser tacked on the game-winning marker less than four minutes later as Vancouver rallied to topple Nashville.

    Sedin, whose assist on Loui Eriksson’s second-period goal was point number 999, hit his milestone with a wrister from the slot at 10:22 of the third period. Fittingly, twin brother Henrik Sedin drew an assist, his second of the night and his 1,034th career point.

    Boeser snapped a 3-3 tie with a wrister from the right post at 14:08. Eriksson tacked on an empty-netter at 19:03 to salt it away. Both Sedins logged assists, giving them three-point nights.

    [B]Canadiens 6, Red Wings 3[/B]

    DETROIT — Right winger Brendan Gallagher had two goals and an assist to lead Montreal to its fourth straight win.

    Left winger Max Pacioretty had a goal and an assist, while left winger Charles Hudon, right winger Andrew Shaw and left winger Alex Galchenyuk also scored for Montreal. Goaltender Carey Price stopped 28 shots.

    The Canadiens were playing the second of back-to-back games after defeating Ottawa 2-1 in Montreal on Wednesday night.

    Detroit is winless in its last six games (0-3-3).

    [B]Stars 4, Blackhawks 3 (OT)[/B]

    CHICAGO — Mattias Janmark scored a pair of goals, including the game-winner 51 seconds into overtime, and Dallas beat Chicago.

    Janmark flipped a shot past goalie Corey Crawford to finish off the win, which was Dallas’ third straight.

    The Blackhawks (12-9-4) tied the game 3-3 at 4:34 of the third period when Patrick Kane redirected a Gustav Forsling shot past Dallas goalie Ben Bishop, who remained in the game after taking a shot to the mask earlier in the period.

    [B]Kings 5, Capitals 2[/B]

    WASHINGTON — Marian Gaborik scored his first two goals of the season, Jonathan Quick stopped 27 shots, and Los Angeles got its third straight win.

    The Kings trailed 2-1 before Jonny Brodzinski and Jussi Jokinen scored goals nine seconds apart in the second period.

    Gaborik, playing in his fourth game, tallied in the first period, and he and Tyler Toffoli added empty-netters for the Kings.

    Evgeny Kuznetsov scored twice for the Capitals, who saw their three-game winning streak end.

    [B]Wild 4, Golden Knights 2[/B]

    ST. PAUL, Minn. — Eric Staal scored twice in the third period, including the game-winner just past the midway point of the period, to lift Minnesota past Vegas.

    Matt Dumba’s blast struck Vegas defenseman Deryk Engelland on the hand and deflected to Stall for a tap-in goal at 12:05 of the period. Staal added an empty-net goal with 5.1 seconds left to seal it.
    [B]
    Flames 3, Coyotes 0[/B]

    CALGARY, Alberta — Mike Smith stopped all 28 shots he faced and Mark Jankowski scored twice as Calgary blanked Arizona.

    Making his first start against his former team since being acquired in a trade June 17, Smith was solid in net as recorded his second shutout of the season and 35th of his NHL career.

    Goalie Scott Wedgewood, who made his fourth straight start for the Coyotes (6-18-4), stopped 41 of 44 shots he faced.

    [B][I]NHL notebook: Ducks, Devils complete major trade
    November 30, 2017[/I][/B]

    The Anaheim Ducks acquired former 30-goal scorer Adam Henrique, fellow center Joseph Blandisi and a third-round pick in the 2018 draft from the New Jersey Devils on Thursday for defenseman Sami Vatanen and a conditional draft pick.

    Henrique, who scored a career-high 30 goals in 2015-16, has four goals and 10 assists in 24 games this season. The 27-year-old Ontario native has recorded 122 goals and 135 assists in 455 career contests since being selected by the Devils in the third round of the 2008 draft. Henrique is in the fifth season of a six-year deal which carries a cap hit of $4 million per campaign.

    Vatanen has scored a goal, set up three others and is averaging 21:06 of ice time in 15 games this season. The 26-year-old native of Finland made his season debut on Oct. 28 after undergoing offseason shoulder surgery. Vatanen has two seasons remaining on a four-year deal with an annual average value of $4.875 million. He has recorded 33 goals and 93 assists in 280 career games since being selected by the Ducks in the fourth round of the 2009 draft.

    [B]–Vancouver Canucks[/B] forward Derek Dorsett will not return to the active roster due to health risks associated with playing.

    Dorsett underwent cervical disc herniation surgery in December 2016. The 30-year-old Saskatchewan native was medically cleared to start the 2017-18 season, but stiffness in the neck and back persisted.

    Dorsett recorded seven goals and two assists in 20 games this season. The scrappy forward collected 51 goals, 76 assists and 1,314 penalty minutes in 515 career games with the Columbus Blue Jackets, New York Rangers and Canucks.
    [B]
    –The Nashville Predators[/B] recalled Anders Lindback from Milwaukee and assigned fellow goaltender Juuse Saros to the AHL affiliate.

    Lindback has an AHL-leading 11 wins to go along with a 2.32 goals-against average and .925 save percentage in 15 games this season for the Admirals.

    Saros has posted a 1-3-1 mark with a 3.71 GAA and .870 save percentage in five games this season. The 22-year-old Finn owns an 11-12-4 record in 27 career appearances — all with Nashville.

    [B]–The Vegas Golden Knights[/B] activated defenseman Luca Sbisa off injured reserve after he missed seven games with a lower-body injury.

    The expansion club also placed forwards David Perron and William Carrier on injured reserve.

    Sbisa recorded one goal, seven assists and eight penalty minutes in 16 games this season. The 27-year-old from Italy has collected 17 goals and 79 assists in 481 career games since being selected with the 19th overall pick of the 2008 draft by Philadelphia.

    Perron and Carrier are both being hampered by upper-body injuries and did not travel with the Golden Knights (15-7-1) for Thursday’s game against the Minnesota Wild (11-10-3).

    [B]–The Edmonton Oilers [/B]placed Cam Talbot on injured reserve Thursday and recalled fellow goaltender Nick Ellis from AHL Bakersfield.

    Coach Todd McLellan told reporters that Talbot “tweaked something” during Tuesday’s 3-2 win over the Arizona Coyotes. The 30-year-old Talbot, who sat out practice with an upper-body injury on Wednesday, will miss at least the Oilers’ next two games.

    Talbot owns a 10-10-1 mark with a 3.00 goals-against average and .903 save percentage in 22 games this season.

    December 1, 2017
    [/I][/B]
    NEW YORK — Henrik Lundqvist overcame allowing an early goal to make 32 saves and Michael Grabner had a hat trick as the New York Rangers beat the Carolina Hurricanes 5-1 at Madison Square Garden on Friday night.

    The Hurricanes have lost four of five. Justin Williams scored the team’s lone goal and Scott Darling stopped 21 of 24 shots to take the loss.

    Grabner, who scored his first goal in the second period, iced the game with his 12th and 13th goals of the season, both into empty nets. He escaped along the right wing in the neutral zone, took a pass from defenseman Ryan McDonagh and scored into an empty net with 2:13 remaining, then collected a bouncing puck and chipped into the net with 1:12 remaining.

    WINNIPEG, Manitoba — Winnipeg right winger Patrik Laine had a goal and two assists, Kyle Connor chipped in with a pair of goals and Jets also got singles from Nikolaj Ehlers, Matt Hendricks, Tyler Myers, Mark Scheifele and Kyle Connor in the win over the visiting Golden Knights.

    Vegas replied with singles from William Karlsson, Cody Eakin and Erik Haula.

    Connor Hellebuyck stopped 27 shots in the Jets net for his 14th win of the season while Maxime Lagace stopped 31 at the other end of the ice for the Golden Knights.

    [B]Sharks 2, Panthers 1[/B]

    SUNRISE, Fla. — Chris Tierney scored a tiebreaking goal with 12:45 left in the third period as San Jose defeated Florida.

    Tierney scored on a sharp-angle rebound off his backhand for his seventh goal of the season.

    The game’s other goals were scored by Florida’s Derek MacKenzie and San Jose’s Joe Pavelski.

    Backup Sharks goalie Aaron Dell made 38 saves for his second straight win this week. He is 15-9-2 in his two years in the NHL, and this was the 17th time this season the Sharks allowed two goals or less.

    The Sharks are 4-0-1 in their past five games, four of which were on the road. Overall this season, the Sharks are 7-2-1 on the road.

    Anze Kopitar followed Toffoli’s first goal with a goal off a rebound of a shot by Alex Iafallo at 6:02 of the first period, his 13th of the season. The two goals came on the Kings’ first five shots.

    [B][I]NHL notebook: Blackhawks G Crawford placed on IR
    December 1, 2017[/I][/B]

    Chicago Blackhawks star goaltender Corey Crawford was placed on injured reserve Friday due to an undisclosed injury.

    The move occurred after Crawford stopped 31 of 35 shots in Thursday’s 4-3 overtime loss against the Dallas Stars. Crawford is required to miss at least one week by being placed on IR.

    The team didn’t reveal details about the injury, but Crawford visibly struggled to get back on his feet after making a save during the third period.

    Crawford is 11-7-2 with a 2.29 goals-against average and .930 save percentage this season. The 32-year-old has won 30 or more games in six of the past seven seasons and has a career 2.37 GAA.

    Chicago recalled goaltender Jean-Francois Berube from Rockford of the American Hockey League to fill the roster opening

    [B]–The Edmonton Oilers[/B] claimed forward Nathan Walker off waivers from the Washington Capitals.

    Walker, 23, appeared in seven games for the Capitals in his rookie season, posting one goal and four penalty minutes.

    He became the first Australian to play in an NHL game and he scored a goal in his debut on Oct. 7 against the Montreal Canadiens. The Capitals selected him in the third round in 2014.

    The Oilers also placed forward Iiro Pakarinen on waivers for the purpose of assignment.
    [B]
    –The Pittsburgh Penguins[/B] sent forward Josh Archibald to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League on a conditioning assignment.

    Archibald, 25, has played in just two games for the Penguins this season, averaging 10:49 time on ice. He scored three goals in 10 games last season.

    Armadillo: Saturday’s List of 13: Random stuff with weekend here……..

    13) When someone throws their Christmas tree out on the front lawn on December 1st, there is a pretty good chance that person is moving soon.

    Thats how reporters were clued in that Jimbo Fi$her was bolting Florida State for the greener pa$ture$ of Texa$ A&M. You mock my dollar signs? Fi$her got $75M guaranteed for ten year$.

    Seminoles need to beat UL-Monroe Saturday to go to a bowl; Fi$her is gone, DL coach Odell Higgins is the interim coach for Saturday and if they win, the bowl game.

    12) So now Oregon’s Willie Taggert is the favorite for the Florida State job; FSU would be his third job in three years- he went from South Florida to Oregon last year.

    If Taggert bolts Oregon, the Ducks would have their third coach in three years in 2018.

    11) Then there is Tennessee, which still hasn’t hired a football coach and now they also have to hire a new athletic director. Pretty soon they also may need a new chancellor.

    Good luck hiring a quality coach when the jackasses on Twitter have veto power over which coach gets hired, which is what happened earlier this week with the Greg Schiano debacle.

    10) Interesting story on the TheMMQB.com on how the Buffalo Bills have a different player stand in front of the team every week and talk about what motivates him and what people have been the driving forces in their lives.

    It allows players to get to know their teammates better and hopefully bonds them tighter as a team. An unusual approach; if the Bills make the playoffs, more teams will do it.

    9) Six Sutter brothers played in the NHL; they combined to score 2,936 points, which is the NHL record for most points scored by a family.

    Two Gretzky brothers played in the NHL; Brent Gretzky had one goal, three assists. Wayne Gretzky scored the rest of the family’s 2,861 points.

    8) Sounds like major league baseball might add expansion teams in Portland/Montreal, go to 32 teams, four geographically-based divisions with a 156-game schedule.

    7) Charlie Hoffman made 12 birdies Friday, shot a 63 and leads the Hero World Challenge; I’m only telling you because ESPN won’t report anything except what Eldrick Woods shoots. Guy makes 12 birdies out of 18 holes, it deserves some publicity.

    6) Shohei Ohtani has until December 22 to sign with a major league team; there are reports from a Japanese newspaper that the Padres are one of his final five teams. Ohtani wants to hit and pitch in the majors and there are reports he wants to play on a team that doesn’t already have a Japanese player on it— no idea why.

    5) Purdue 80, Maryland 75— NFL referee Gene Steratore worked this game; wonder if he has the Ravens’ game in Baltimore Sunday- would make his travel simpler.

    4) Grambling 64, Georgia Tech 63— Awful loss for the Yellow Jackets; Grambling was ranked #338 before this game. Grambling had lost 63 games in a row against Power 5 teams, dating back 21 years. Yikes.

    3) USC 31, Stanford 28— Wow, Sam Darnold has an interesting decision ahead of him after the Trojans’ bowl game; go play pro football and get rich, or stay in college and prepare for the NFL for one more season? If the Browns go 0-16, I’m guessing he stays at USC.

    2) One of the themes of Moneyball was that Billy Beane “wanted to change the game” as far as how baseball front offices did their jobs.

    Looks like he’s accomplished his goal; he’s turned front offices against the manager’s job and turned it into a middle-manager, button-pusher type that they think almost anyone can do.

    Bronx Bombers named Aaron Boone manager, someone who has never managed in the major leagues before. You really think managing a baseball team in New York City is an entry-level job? The amount of media scrutiny that goes on? A first-timer is a good choice?

    I could care less if the Bronx Bombers ever win another game; just seems to me that firing Joe Girardi for someone who is a rookie manager is an incredibly bad idea.

    1) Derek Jeter is doing a hell of a job as Marlins’ owner; his latest fiasco (from CBS Sports):

    “Miami Marlins fired a veteran scout a few days after he underwent colon cancer surgery. What’s worse, the scout received the phone call to learn of his dismissal while laying in the hospital waiting on a kidney transplant.”

    Classy, great people skills; how much money could the scout possibly be making?

    Trading Giancarlo Stanton in a salary dump will be Jeter’s next move; because they’re dumping salary, the Marlins will trade a guy who hit 59 homers and get very little back, in way of players.
