3* Selection: N.Y.I. -115

The Islanders had a rather sluggish start to this season but have changed things around as of late. They only have 4 wins this season but they are currently on a 3 game winning streak. Their last 3 wins came against the Rangers, Capitals and Sabres, three strong teams who each have a winning record.

marty turco2* Selection: Dallas +104

The Stars are in a very strong position to come out with the victory and oddsmakers are giving them positive odds. Therefore there is a lot of value playing the Stars in this matchup. Dallas is coming off a 6-5 shootout loss to Florida yesterday but their starting goaltender Marty Turco was given the day off. He will get the start tonight against a team that he has faced twice already this season, allowing a total of only 2 goals in those contests.

2* Selection: UNDER 5.5

There is a substantial amount of value in playing the UNDER in this matchup, especially considering that oddsmakers are giving positive odds. Fortunately San Jose is playing at home, where they clearly play at their best, particularly defensively. The Sharks are allowing an average of only 1.5 goals per game at home this season.

nic lidstrom3* Selection: Vancouver +106

Detroit has yet to win a game on the road this season. Life won’t be any easier for the Red Wings as they travel to Vancouver. The Canucks are 5-1 at home this season and have allowed only 6 goals to the opposition in their last 5 home contests.

rick nash2* Selection: OVER 5.5

The Blue Jackets and Kings have each started the season strong. One of the main reasons why they have had a strong start is because each team is able to score at will. Offensively these teams are combining for 6.9 goals per game.

vincent lecavalier

Even after spending the last eleven years in sunny Tampa Bay Florida, Vincent Lecavalier will always consider Montreal his home town.

After being drafted first overall in 1998, Lecavalier made the smooth transition into the NHL putting 28 points on the board with 13 goals in his rookie season, and things have only gotten better. Since then he’s never scored less than 20 goals per season, and in his last 5 years he’s only missed 6 games. He’s a team captain, and a Stanley Cup champion.

bill guerinFree Pick: New York Islanders +189

Bet 3 units (7 unit system).

There is an unbelievable amount of value in this pick because the likelihood of the Islanders winning this one is more or less a coin flip. If I tell you that you have a 1 out of 2 chance to win a play that generates an ROI of 189%, you should jump on this play as fast as you can. The logic being that over the long run, these types of plays will help you build your bankroll. I will not guarantee that the Islanders will win but there are reasons for one to believe that they can take this one.

With that note, on November 22nd the Montreal Canadiens will retire the number of one of hockey’s greatest goaltenders of all time. During a special pre-game ceremony at the Bell Centre, lucky Montreal Canadiens tickets holders will watch as Quebec City native Patrick Roy’s No. 33 will be hoisted to the rafters, placing his jersey amongst legendary goaltenders like Jacques Plante and Ken Dryden. In 19 seasons of hockey Roy holds the record for 551 wins, he’s won two Conn Smythe Trophies, three Vezina Trophies and four Jennings Trophies, not to mention the pair of Stanley Cups he helped win for both Montreal and the Colorado Avalanche, eventually earning him a spot in the NHL’s Hockey Hall of Fame. “St-Patrick’s” No. 33 was already retired by the Avalanche in 2003, but on Nov. 22nd the gesture will historically symbolize that all is forgiven, and that Patrick Roy’s incredible career in Montreal will never be forgotten.
