Toronto has now won three in a row and five of six with only loss over that span being that bizarre and unlikely one against the Penguins. The Buds have scored four or more goals in four of their past five and they've scored 11 times in their past two. For the first time in a very long time, the Maple Leafs can smell the playoffs. This is confident team that is on a roll and very dangerous at the moment. Despite playing the second game in two nights, winning is much less physically draining than losing and Toronto can't wait to get back on the ice. Winnipeg returns home from a six-game trip that saw them play on the road twice before the break and four times after it. They’ve scored two goals or less in every game of that trip, went 2-4 with the wins occurring in OT and they were held to 24 shots on net or less in the last five games. It's going to take a lot more than that to beat the ascending Leafs.[/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif] [/FONT][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif]Play: Toronto -101 (Risking 2.02 units to win 2).

In 24 games this year, he has a 3.65 GAA, a .882 save percentage and hasn't played since January 21. For the Kings, it'll be Jonathan Quick and his 1.87 GAA and .934 save percentage. Based on that alone, the Kings are worthy of a bet here, as goaltending often decides the outcome. The Kings would be a huge threat with some more scoring. It's no secret that their Achilles Heel all season has been a lack of production. However, the Bolts are not strong defensively and you can count on L.A. attacking with everything they have against a vulnerable 42-year-old, fragile netminder. Tampa Bay could get caught looking ahead to an upcoming three games in four nights road trip against the Rangers, Buffalo and Pittsburgh this coming Thursday, Saturday and Sunday respectively[/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif].

They keep getting offered these ridiculous prices and they keep rewarding their backers. New Jersey has won four straight since the break. They beat the Rangers, Philly, Montreal and Pittsburgh. They had a 6-0 lead on Philadelphia and beat the Pens 5-2. They scored four goals or more in all of the above, yet they keep being offered prices that you would find on teams like Calgary and the Islanders. Yes, they have goaltending issues and yes the Rangers are one of the best. However, the Devils can match anyone outside of goal, they're popping in goals at an eye-opening rate and they deserve much more credit than this. We're not always in the business of predicting the outcome of games. We're commonly in the business of finding value and letting the chips fall where they may. With this quality team and what is being offered, this one surely fits[/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif].

In other words, with a couple of bounces they could easily be 3-3 or even 4-2 over that span. The point is, they're the same team that was winning games earlier. They've just hit a little snag in the road. The Senators are not hanging their heads. They're competing with the same fire they've had all season and such diligence does not go unrewarded for long. Much of the focus here is on Blues goalie Brian Elliott, who played in Ottawa for 3½ years before signing with St. Louis this season. He never stood out for a second in his time as a Senator. This year though, he's an all-star and surely wants to have an impact upon his return to Ottawa. However, the Blues are just 2-5-2 in their past nine road games and 8-11-3 overall. The Blue Notes have scored one goal in five of their past seven games and that serious lack of production does not warrant them being chalk on the road. Finally, St. Louis has lost the last five matchups in Ottawa while not scoring more than two goals in any contest and this one isn't likely to be any different.

The Canucks are third in the NHL in points and they've picked up points in five straight and 14 of their past 17 games. The real kicker here is that they could also be in Pekka Rinne's kitchen. In two games this year against Nashville, Rinne was yanked both times after allowing four goals on 16 shots in the first game and five goals on 18 shots in the second. There's not a lot more to say other than reiteracting that we get one of the NHL's elite teams that is always tough to beat and we're taking back a tag against a goaltender they've owned this season.[/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif] [/FONT][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif]Play: Vancouver +109 (Risking 2 units).

Of all the games tonight I'm strangely intrigued by the St Louis/Ottawa game. My Dan Aykroyd rebuttle to you're Jane Curtain analyisis of this game would go something like...."Jane you ignorant slut. How can you remotely consider the Blues losing their last five trips to Ottawa when two of those games were played over 11 years ago? Another one had Zdeno Chara, Wade redden, Marty Havlat, Radek Bonk, and Bryan Smolinski in the Sens starting lineup. God lord, the goalie match up was Patrick Lalime vs. Chris Osgood!

As far as ther Blues only scoring one goal in 5 of their last 7 games...versus the Kings, Red Wings, Nashville and Dallas. Sens just scored one or none against the Leafs and Islanders.

Take this all in humor Sherwood. You know I love your stuff. GL with all.....slut.

Love it Vic and you're right about games 11 years ago having zero impact on this one. In fact, I hate trends more than anyone. However, I still like Ottawa, as I've watched them closely all season long and see them on the verge of breaking out again. Frankly, St. Lou hasn't impressed me on the road all season and even at home the record is misleading.
