As the trade deadline is over its time for the march to the playoffs as we have two HUGE hockey games to preview tonight to make you some huge money. March is one of the best month of hockey as so many teams are starting to think about the playoffs and some still have a hope of making the promise land even though they are shit (Flyers, Red Wings, Stars and the Lightning). When all of the bets hits, no need to thank us, just give us a follow on Twitter at DST_Tweets as we have some major giveaways soon!
Colorado Avalanche @ Winnipeg Jets (-1.50) - [+145]
The Winnipeg Jets are a very tough team to read. Due to their strong offense, inconsistent defense and their poor goaltending I usually stay away. In saying this, against the worst team in the NHL in a situation where they should shine (their team plays a lot better at home), I think this is the best bet of the night. Also, out of their offensive stars, they have all been pretty prolific against the Avalanche (but who hasn't). Two players, I would look at is Blake Wheeler and Mark Scheifele. Both are going to be vital for the Jets Power play as the Avs are insanely poor on the penalty kill as they are the 6th worst in the NHL but also the second worst in goals against. Mark Scheifele in 16 games against Colorado in his career he has three goals and ten assists but more importantly five of his points are on the power play. Also, Blake Wheeler in 24 games played has 28 points with eight power play points. The Jets will win and win big; I say 4-1.
Columbus Blue Jackets @ Ottawa Senators - [-108]
The Columbus Blue Jackets go to the Ottawa in a game that is looking like the Blue Jacket's to lose. The Blue Jackets are better at special teams, goals per game and even shots on net. Sadly for Ottawa, these stats aren't even close the Blue Jackets are miles ahead as they start to think about the playoffs. Cam Atkinson has more than half of his goals away from home (16), and I think he and the rest of that skillful Blue Jackets offense will destroy the Senators and win. I think this is going to be a goal fest. Blue Jackets will win 3-2.
