As we recorded our latest podcast last night we all watch NHL scores live. That’s what happens when everyone brings their own laptops. Too bad for Harper things didn’t go his way.
It’s the third time in four nights that NHL scores come through the way I expected them too. Last night’s bet of the night was for the Minnesota Wild to beat the Montréal Canadiens, and unfortunately for Harper les habitants lost 3-0.
CHI -105 1 @ 3 -115 PHI
EDM -125 3 @ 2 +105 NJD
MIN +125 3 @ 0 -145 MTL Bet of the Night/Best Return
ARZ +195 2 @ 3 -235 STL
DET +145 3 @ 6 -165 CGY
VAN +125 1 @ 4 -145 ANA
TBL +115 5 @ 2 -135 LAK
The Habs looked alright through the first two periods, or at least that’s what the NHL’s gamecenter showed. But in the third Minnesota broke through thanks to a Jason Zucker hat-trick. At one point it looked like Charles Hudon was able to peg the Wild’s lead back by a single goal, but it didn’t stand.
I’m not sure exactly how Harper felt. I figure mad because Montréal dropped another game. But he had to be a little happy that our bets are commin’ in. Right?

Generally the Pittsburgh Penguins have the Washington Capitals number. Sidney Crosby and his cohorts take up so much space in the Capitals heads. But this season hasn’t gone according to plan for either squads.
Pittsburgh is still at the top of the division, but they certainly don’t look convincing. And the Washington Capitals are still trying to dig themselves out of that early hole they found themselves in. With a three game winning streak already I put faith in Alex Ovechkin to pull out a fifth against their most hated rival.
My New York Islanders are looking pretty good right about now. Sure they could use some better goaltending, but that will come. Both Greiss and Halak aren’t this bad. The Oilers held the Islanders highflying offense to just a single goal back in Brooklyn the other night. I don’t expect Dallas’ team to do the same.
