One Streak Ends When Bolts Host Hawks

Patrick Kane Blackhaks Steven Stamkos Lightning

While everyone talks about the Chicago Blackhawks and their 12-game winning streak, and deservedly so, the Tampa Bay Lightning are on a tear of their own as they bid to win their seventh consecutive game when they host the Hawks Thursday night.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in 12 of the Lightning’s last 17 games against the Western Conference.
  • The Blackhawks are 6-0 in their last six games on the road.
  • The Blackhawks are 7-0 in their last seven games against the Eastern Conference.

No matter what side you’re on at the betting window, there is value to had here. At online shop Bovada, the Hawks are currently -110 road underdogs while the Bolts are priced at -120 on home ice. Bovada has the total at 5.5 with OVER -135 and UNDER +105

The clubs have met once already this season, with the Hawks skating to a 1-0 overtime victory back on October 24. Furthermore, when looking back to last season’s Stanley Cup Final, the Blackhawks have gone 4-0 in the last four meetings between the two teams.

Going beyond their current streak, the Bolts have gone 7-1 in the month of January and have posted a 4-0 record at Amalie Arena in the month.

The recent success has the Lightning sitting in fifth in the Eastern Conference with 54 points but closing the gap with the second-placed Florida Panthers.

Over the in West, the 12-game win streak has the Hawks building a strong lead as they now sit five points up on the Dallas Stars heading into Thursday’s slate of games.

On a packed Thursday board in the NHL and with stars at each end of the ice, this is clearly the game of the night. Considering the great betting value available on the two hottest teams in the league, it could be the game of the night for hockey bettors as well.

Supporters of the Chicago Blackhawks have seen them go 32-13-4 so far this season, while the Lightning are at 25-17-4. In totals betting, the Tampa Bay Lightning are 16-23-7, while the Blackhawks are 16-23-10.

Leafs Out for Momentum With Win Tonight

Eric Staal Leo Komarov Hurricanes Maple Leafs

The Toronto Maple Leafs will look to build on a victory their last time out while the Carolina Hurricanes will attempt to get back in the win column when the two square off at the Air Canada Centre Thursday night.

Shark Bites
  • The Hurricanes are 4-1 SU in their last five games against the Maple Leafs.
  • The Hurricanes are 4-14 SU in their last 18 games versus the Atlantic Division.
  • The Maple Leafs are 6-20 in their last 26 games versus the Eastern Conference.

The Leafs ended a five-game losing skid with a 3-2 win at the Philadelphia Flyers Tuesday and are currently priced at -120 at online shop Bovada to make it two in a row. The Canes used a nice four-game win streak to make a little noise at the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings, but that’s come to a screeching halt thanks to back-to-back losses with the most recent a 5-0 thumping courtesy the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Any playoff hopes Carolina has will now tested as netminder Cam Ward has been placed on injured reserve with a concussion. Though not confirmed, Eddie Lack is likely to start for the Canes. Lack has made two career appearances versus Toronto, stopping 41 of 42 shots and earning one win with a 0.64 goals against average and .976 save percentage.

The Leafs have a tall mountain to climb if they have any playoff aspirations this season but a win in Philly was a good start and a win versus the Canes – who they are chasing – would be a great momentum builder for the Buds.

Brent Burns San Jose Sharks NHL

With the NHL All-Star Game fast approaching and the first half of the season in the rearview mirror, it has been somewhat of a bizarre season for fans and bettors of the San Jose Sharks.

The Sharks have had a serious identity crisis this season which has culminated in one of the best road records up to this point (16-6-2), but also one of the worst home records in the league (8-12-1).

Red Wings Have Given St. Louis the Blues

David Backes Henrik Zetterberg Blues Red Wings

The Detroit Red Wings will be reacquainted with an old foe when they host the St. Louis Blues at Joe Louis Arena Wednesday evening. The Wings, who have won four-straight meetings with the Blues, are -125 moneyline favorites against their old Central Division rival while the visitors are -105.

Shark Bites
  • The visiting team is 7-1 SU in the last eight games in this matchup.
  • The Red Wings are 16-5 SU in their last 21 games versus the Central Division.
  • The Blues are 2-6 SU in their last eight games with one days’ rest.

The Wings performed incredibly well during a six-game road trip to begin January, winning five games and losing just one. The Philadelphia Flyers spoiled their return home with a 2-1 shootout victory in their last game Saturday.

As mentioned, it’s been all Red Wings when these two teams take the ice in recent contests. Over the course of those four meetings, Detroit has outscored St. Louis 12-6 while the UNDER has cashed in three of the four. The Wings skated to a 4-3 win in the last meeting back on November 21.

The Blues are doing all that they can to keep up with the red-hot Chicago Blackhawks in the Central Division. As Chicago grabs the headlines with a franchise record 12-game winning streak, the Blues sit seven points back and take a modest two-game streak of their own into Joe Louis.

According to the Red Wings’ official twitter account, it will be Petr Mrazek who gets the start in the crease. Mrazek has been lights out versus the Blues in his career, winning three games in four appearances and can boast a 1.12 goals against average and .956 save percentage heading into Wednesday's contest.
