NHL 2010/2011 November

Sport Ice Hockey
Event Vancouver Canucks - New Jersey Devils
Selection Vancouver Canucks (-0.5) (Asian-handicap)
Strength 10/10
Date 01/11/2010
Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 1.92
Reasoning The Canuks haven't been that impressive overall but on home ice they've been kings, as expected: they've recorded four wins (one after regulation) and one OT loss in five home games so far outscoring opponents 17-8. Special teams have been a strong suit for Vancouver as their pp is at 22.9% and pk at 83.8%. The Devils have been the worst team after most have played 12games: they've lost nine games (one after regulation) from 12 games played. That's not surprising as they've scored the least amount of goals at 20 and allowed 2nd most at 39. Special teams have also been struggling with pp at 7.7% and pk at 81.8%. New Jersey's inury problems continue and also Parise is out of this game. Canucks with more minor problems with more notably two defensemen Hamhuis and Ballard questionable for this game. Both of the goalies have been in good form, Luongo save% at .907 and Brodeur save% at .905. Home advantage is huge and you can't ignore the Devils' bad form. Also Brodeur has been playing bad against the Canucks losing six out of last seven meetings. Vancouver to win this one in regulation shouldn't be too far off.

Event Toronto Maple Leafs - Ottawa Senators
Selection Toronto Maple Leafs (-1.5) (Asian-handicap)
Strength 10/10
Date 02/11/2010
Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 3.21
Reasoning Toronto has been struggling of late losing five games of last six played. Their offense has been the problem as they've allowed only 10 goals during those six games. Special teams have been so-so with pp at 11.9% and pk at 84.8%. Ottawa has been playing little better of late winning three games out of last five played. Still notable that in both loses they were left scoreless and in the wins all opponents scored atleast two goals, definetely not that impressive. Special teams have been good with pp at 15.0% and pk at 85.1%. This is the second meeting between the heated rivals and Toronto took the first one by a 5-1 score. This is the perfect place for Toronto to get back on winning ways as they usually play very good against Ottawa (Maple Leafs have won 6/7 of the same fixture during last two season). Yeah, needless to say home advantage is huge in this case and should carry Toronto to an another impressive win against shaky Ottawa defense.

Event Minnesota Wild - San Jose Sharks
Selection San Jose Sharks (-1.5) (Asian-handicap)
Strength 10/10
Date 02/11/2010
Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 3.33
Reasoning Minnesota is in a mini-slump losing three of last four games during which they've scored only six goals. Their home record so far is moderate losing four of seven games played (one after regulation). Special teams have been excellent with pp at 30.2% and pk at 84.9%. San Jose seems to have finally woken up winning four of last five games, outscoring their opponents 20-11 during the span. Their away form is very impressive so far winning three games of four played. Special teams have been great with pp at 31.8% and pk at 80.0%. With the Sharks gaining some momentum they are a threat to any team in the league, let alone a team that's form is dropping and has injury problems: Minnesota is missing Miettinen and Bouchard (also Latendresse is doutbful), all important forwards. Look for San Jose to continue from their last season dominant performances against the Wild (they won 4/4 games).

Event Buffalo Sabres - Boston Bruins
Selection Boston Bruins (-1.5) (Asian-handicap)
Strength 10/10
Date 03/11/2010
Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 3.46
Reasoning Boston with the fewest games played so far but they've made them count: six regulation wins from eight games played (all wins with two goals or more). Goalie Tim Thomas has been a wall posting a .984save% in six games played. The Bruins' special teams have also been top notch with pp at 21.9% and pk at 93.1%. Buffalo has been one of the worst teams in the league so far losing nine games of 12 played (two after regulation, four loses with two goals or more). Ryan Miller has been good at goal with .903save% but special teams have struggled: pp at 13.0% and pk at 74.5%. The team forms are pretty much the opposite and although Buffalo has been able to keep some games close, you just can't ignore the fact that Boston is playing near perfectly at the moment. The Special teams also favour the Bruins heavily and this will in all likelyhood end in a clear victory for the visitors. Great odds for atleast a two goal win.

Event Anaheim Ducks - Tampa Bay Lightning
Selection Tampa Bay Lightning
Strength 10/10
Date 03/11/2010
Bookmaker/Price Expekt @ 2.45
Reasoning Tampa Bay is at 2nd place in the league after winning seven games of ten played (one after regulation, four win with two goals or more). Goalie Smith has been bad with a .868save% but he might get the nod as he has a stellar record against Anaheim. Special teams have been excellent with pp at 23.9% and pk at 90.7%. Anaheim has improved from their bad start but still only four wins of last ten games played, including last two (five games lost with two goals or more overall). Both goaltenders have been excellent with save% over .900 keeping them in games. Special teams have been good with pp at 23.8% and pk at 80.7%. I watched Anaheims last game and they didn't actually play that bad. The problem area is still the defensive zone and I'm willing to bet on Tampa Bay's more than capable forwards to get plenty of quality scoring chances tonight. The Lightning has been great on road with four wins of five played (one after regulation) and tonights matchup should be a good chance for them to make with five wins. Great odds on Tampa to win in regulation, in my opinion there is too much respect for Anaheims home advantage in this case.

Event Atlanta Trashers - Columbus Blue Jackets
Selection Columbus over 2.5 goals (inc. OT)
Strength 10/10
Date 04/11/2010
Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 1.76
Reasoning Columbus has been playing well winning four of last five games played. On road they've been playing well also winning three of four and scoring three goals in all but one game. Their special teams have been so-so with pp at 12.8% and pk at 84.3%. Atlanta's defense has been horrible but their offense has kept them afloat lately: They've allowed three goals or more in seven concscutive games. Their special teams have done well with pp at 22.8% and pk at 80.8%. Should be an entertaining match with lots of goals. I'm choosing Columbus to score atleast three goals as Atlanta defense seems to be on a holiday right now. The overall over sounded tempting too but Atlanta has been held to two goals or less in 2/3 home games so far and the Blue Jackets defense has been pretty solid. The price is low but it sounds like a fairly safe bet as the visitors certainly have the firepower to take advantage of any lapses from the Trashers defense.

Event Ottawa Senators - NY Islanders
Selection Ottawa Senators
Strength 10/10
Date 04/11/2010
Bookmaker/Price Expekt @ 2.00
Reasoning Ottawa has improved from their start and they've won three of last four games played losing only against strong Boston. They responded well to the 0-4 loss against Boston and played great in a 2-3 victory against Toronto. They've scored five goals in both of their last two home games. Special teams have been good with pp at 18.2% and pk at 84.6%. NY Islanders have melted down totally after an excellent start. They've lost five games and they've been outscored 16-4 in their last three games. Special teams have been good with pp at 22.6% and pk at 82.1%. The Senators are gaining momentum and the Islanders are falling apart. Look for the home side to dominate the game with ease as NY has lost confidence in their game and will more than likely try to slow down the pace and defend most of the game. In my opinion the bookies are giving too much credit to the visitors in this occasion, Ottawa to win this one in regulation with odds at evens is too good of a bet to pass.

Event Colorado Avalanche - Vancouver Canucks
Selection Vancouver Canucks over 2.5 goals (inc. OT)
Strength 10/10
Date 04/11/2010
Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 1.69
Reasoning Colorado is coming off a 5-1 win over Columbus which was a surprisingly good performance in the defensive end. Before that game they allowed 19goals in just four games (atleast four goals per game). Their pp has been good at 20.4% but pk is dismal at 73.9%. Goalie Budaj hasn't been good with a .875save%. Vancouver is picking up pace as they've won four games in a row scoring atleast three goals in all games. Their special teams have been good with pp at 23.8% and pk at 85.7&. I see Vancouver atleast continuing their scoring tonight as this matchup favours that heavily. Colorado's offensive type pf play comes often with the expense of defense as they allow a lot of goals. It doens't help the host's case that their pk has been awful and the Canucks have an impressive pp with the Sedin twins leading the rush. Low odds but hard to see anything but a lot of goals for the visitors.

Re: NHL 2010/2011 November Atlanta 0-3 Columbus Ottawa 4-1 NY Islanders Colorado 1-3 Vancouver -------------------- 3/3. Hello perfect night :cheers Watched the whole Atlanta game and man were the Trashers bad. Could've easily been 0-5,6 even without the empty netter which sealed my win (lucky, but well deserved). Also watched the first two periods of the Colorado game, Vancouvers offense was clearly too much to handle for the hosts and Canucks with plenty of great scoring chances as expected.

Event Florida Panthers - Carolina Hurricanes
Selection Florida Panthers (-1.5) (Asian-handicap)
Strength 10/10
Date 05/11/2010
Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 3.22
Reasoning Florida has picked up just eight points from ten games played. They haven't been playing bad of late though: First they finished their roadtrip to a 1-3 win over Montreal and then returned to home in a game which they lost to Atlanta although dominating the game (shots on goal were 55-23!). So their gameplay definetely seems to be picking up. PP has been awful at 9.1% but pk has been excellent at 87.5%. Carolina hasn't faired much better in the start of the season collecting just 12 points from 12 games played. They are coming off an easy outing against the slumping NY Islanders where Hurricanes scored seven goals in just 32 shots. Special teams have been awful with pp at 13.0% and pk at 77.6%. Florida should be pumped up for this game after the freaky lost they suffered in their last home game. Their opponent is coming off a big win and maybe feeling a bit too over confident, the Hurricanes have still showed us one of the worst performances to start the season. Home advantage should be concidered big tonight, Florida has dominated these meetings winning 7/10 meetings during last three seasons, including all three last season. Also notable that Carolina's leading defenseman Pitkanen is likely out of tonights match with an upper-body injury, not good news for already shaky defense. Look for Florida to come off hard and dominate the game, I see the homeside winning this with ease.

Selection Anaheim Ducks over 2.5 goals (inc. OT)
Strength 10/10
Date 05/11/2010
Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 1.81
Reasoning Anaheim still not playing the way they'd like but surely an improvement to the start of the season. The Ducks have split the last ten games, winning five of them. They are coming off to tonights game after a 3-2 OT win against Tampa Bay. I watched the game and Anaheim's defense still doesn't seem good but on the offensive side they seem to be doing alright creating plenty of scoring chances. Their special teams have faired well with pp at 23.4% and pk at 80.3%. Pittsburgh has fallen to lose four of it's last five games winning only against poor performing Carolina. Their special teams have been okey with a dissapointing pp at 12.1% and pk at 86.2%. Fleury is expected to play in goal for the Penguins and oh-boy this should be good news for the home team. He has posted a .863save% in six games so far taking the blame for the team's loss in many cases. Anaheim has scored atleast three goals in four of five home games played so far and I'm thinking they'll reach that mark once again. The Penguins defense has been rollercoaster-like and with their trust fading on their number one goalie Fleury I see the home team scoring some goals.

Selection Philadelphia Flyers (-1.5) (Asian-handicap)
Strength 10/10

Reasoning Philadelphia has been flyin' high winning the last five games in a row, all within regulation and three with two goals or more. Their special teams have been great with pp at 19% and pk at 87.5%. Goaltender Bobrovsky has been stellar with a .921save%. NY has melted down completely losing last six games in a row being outscored 29-11. All but one of those games have been lost with two goals or more. Special teams have been okey with pp at 23.4% and pk at 82.8%. Goalie DiPietro has been bad with a .854save%. These teams met last week when Philadelphia beat the Islanders 6-1. Both teams have since continued their streaks with Flyers improving their form and NY sinking even lower. Philadelphia should once again show their superiority tonight as they are the better team in almost every aspect of the game right now. Most notably the hosts defense and goalie are spiralling down and I see that continuing in tonights game.

Selection San Jose Sharks (-1.5) (Asian-handicap)
Strength 10/10
Date 06/11/2010
Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 2.83
Reasoning San Jose returning home after a dismal two game roadtrip. They lost both games and scored zero goals (1-0 and 2-0). Before that that the Sharks had a two game home stand and they won both games with a 5-2 scoreline. Special teams have been good with pp at 26.9% and pk at 83.9%. Expect Niittymaki to start on goal as he has been stellar with a .930save%. Tampa Bay is coming off to tonights game with a two game losing streak. In both games they didn't play that bad but were the losing side by a one goal difference. Special teams have been good with pp at 22.6% and pk at 90.4%. Both goalies have been okey so far, Ellis might get the nod as Smith played in the latest game. I'm expecting the Sharks to come off very physical and dominate the game as they usually do on home ice. They should have a point to prove after that humiliating two game road trip. Tampa Bay on the other hand hasn't been bad but I can't see them fairing well against a very physical team like San Jose. Also the Lightnings goaltenders are moderate at best. Note that the visitors might have injury problems in tonights game with two forwards and two defenseman questionable. The Sharks are without their captain Thornton as he is suspended. Could be a big blow to the Sharks game but I think it's nothing fatal as they should have enough depth in their team to manage without him for a few games. Sharks to take this one with atleast two goal difference.

Event Florida Panthers -Toronto Maple Leafs
Selection Florida Panthers (-1.5) (Asian-handicap)
Strength 10/10
Date 10/11/2010
Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 2.85
Reasoning Florida has done very well on home ice winning three of five games played scoring 21 goals and allowing 15 goals. Although losing two games they've been dominating in every game and the problem has been defensively lapses including shaky goaltending. Penalty killing has been great at 88.9% but powerplay has struggled at 8.1%. Toronto has lost all of their last six games played being outscored 17-8. They've been held to two goals or less in eight of last ten games so needless to say their offense is lacking. On road they've lost four out of six games (one after regulation). Special teams have been bad with pk at 78.3% and pp at 12.1%. Florida has been a powerhouse on home ice and against a slumping Toronto team they should win with ease. The hosts have been getting themselves in scoring races although dominating the games but it's hard to see sturggling Leafs offense keeping up. The Panthers should win this easily if they keep the giftwrapped goals to a tolerable level.

Event Anaheim Ducks - NY Islanders
Selection NY Islanders
Strength 10/10
Date 10/11/2010
Bookmaker/Price Nordicbet @ 3.30
Reasoning Anaheim is in a four game winning streak coming into tonight. All of the games were decided by one goal and two of them went to overtime, nothing impressive there. They also outscored their opponents only 12-10 (in regulation). I watched the last two of Anaheim's games and well, they were very lucky in both occasions to escape with the points. Their defense is just plain horrible but somehow they've managed to combine a few ugly goals and great goaltending to get a winning streak going. Anaheim's powerplay has been good at 22.2% and pk has done okey at 82.2%. The Islanders are coming into tonights in a dismal form with a sven games losing streak where they were outscored 31-10. Their latest game though was good and they were the better team although losing 1-2 against Philadelphia. Special teams have faired well with pp at 22.9% and pk at 83.3%. Well, I'm betting against the trends but I believe the Islanders can pull of a little surprise tonight. That is if they continue to play like they did in their latest game: aggressive. Anaheim's defense is very vulnerable to pressure and even without it they seem lost at times. It's hard to believe that the Ducks can keep up their form with allowing the opponents a few giftwrapped goals per game and/or letting them dominate the game all together. NY isn't such a bad team and it's time for them to end their slump against the lucky Ducks.

Event Boston Bruins - Montreal Canadiens
Selection Boston Bruins (-1.5) (Asian-handicap)

Date 11/11/2010

Reasoning Boston snapped a two game losing streak with an impressive last period where they outscored Pittsburgh 5-0 (4-7 final score). They have been one of the best teams so far winning eight games out of 12 played outscoring their opponents 40-24. Special teams have been great with pp at 22.2% and pk at 90.9%. Both goaltenders with impressive save% (Thomas .959 and Rask .921). Montreal has been playing good also winning nine out of 15 games (one after regulation). Most of the games though have been tight affairs and they've outscored their opponents only 36-33. Powerplay has been awful at 7.8% but pk has been good at 88.7%. Goalie Price has been solid with a .918save%. While the Canadiens haven't played bad their tonights opponent should be concidered having the upper hand. The Bruins have simply had a great start with both offense and defense working well. I see Boston dominating most of the gameplay and the visiting teams offense scoring only a few goals if any. Great odds on Boston -1.5 hc.

Event Atlanta Trashers - Minnesota Wild
Selection Minnesota Wild (moneyline)
Strength 10/10
Date 11/11/2010
Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 2.15
Reasoning Atlanta is coming off to tonights game with a three game losing streak, mostly due to their dismal defense. They've allowed a league high 56goals so far in 15games played. Still they've managed to hang on in some games as they've scored 46goals. Their powerplay has worked well at 26.1% but pk has failed at 75.5%. Goaltending has been okey with all three goalies with over .900save%. Minnesota has done okey so far winning seven games of 13 played. They've improved their form of late winning four of last five games and riding a three game winning streak atm. Their offense hasn't impressed but defense and goaltending has been superb allowing only six goals during last five games. Special teams have been strong suit with pp at 27.1% and pk at 86.4%. Goalie Backstrom has been great as usual with a .941save%. It's hard to figure out why Minnesota is the underdog in this matchup. They have the upperhand in defense, goaltending and more notably the special teams. Atlanta has been able to upset some teams by hanging on in goalfests but it's hard to see them scoring many against a tight Wild defense. Minnesota on the other hand should be able to take advantage of shaky Trashers defense and pk. I think the hosts are rated to high in this matchup as the visitors are the better team in almost every aspect.

Date 11/11/2010
Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 2.75
Reasoning LA has been one of the most surprising teams so far winning 10 out of 13 games played (two after regulation). They've been especially great on home ice posting a perfect six wins from six games played outscoring their opponents 19-7. Powerplay has been so-so at 14.3% but pk has been good at 90.7%. Goalie Quick has been excellent with a .942save%. Dallas just got a three game winning streak snapped in their latest game as they were beaten 5-0 by Colorado. They've been able to win eight games out of 13 played so far (two after regulation) outscoring their opponents 43-37. In many games they've been dominated but opportunistic scoring has kept them afloat along with great goaltending by Lehtonen and Raycroft. Powerplay has been okey at 17.5% but pk has been dismal at 74.0%. These teams met once already and LA took the points with a 2-5 final score. Now the Kings are hosting and I see a pretty similiar scenario forming. LA should dominate the game with ease as they've been doing so far on home ice. Pretty big missmatch with the hosts having the upperhand in most aspects of play not to mention the huge home advantage. Kings should skate into a comfortable victory and sadly the odds do reflect that.

Selection Over 5.5 goals
Strength 10/10
Date 19/11/2010
Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 2.10
Reasoning Buffalo has been struggling to get wins but they've improved their form of late winning four of last six games played (though all wins were after regulation). Their scoring is still lacking with only 26 goals scored in last ten games while allowing 36 goals. On home ice they haven't played as expected: they've lost seven out of nine games and have yet to record a win withing regulation. Visiting opponents have outscored Buffalo 30-20. Special teams have been a weak point with pp at 11.5% and pk at 77.3%. All three goalies have been okey but not great with Miller playing 13 games and Enroth and LaLime playing four games a piece. Miller (.905save%) is likely to start. LA has had a great start to the season winning 12 out of 17 games played, though eight of those wins have come on home ice where they've pretty much dominated every opponent. On road it's been an another story as they've split the eight games played getting outscored 23-25. Special teams have done well with pp at 16.7% and pk at 90.1%. The backup goalie Bernier is set to start tonight (.899%). I had a hard time predicting the winner so I opted for the o/u market. Buffalo has had it rough so far but they've been finding the net pretty well of late (sadly the opponents have found it just as well or better). The Kings offense on the other hand is flyin' high scoring atleast three goals in each of last five goals played and on road their defense ain't that good (5/8 times allowed atleast three goals). Also the fact that Bernier is starting for the Kings can't hurt the over and with Miller not certain (he played in the last three games) I'm glad to take the o5.5 with odds over evens.

Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 2.20
Reasoning Pittsburgh has done well of late winning four of last six games scoring atleast four goals in four of those games. Their pp is still struggling at 12.8%. Carolina has had a crazy rollercoaster-like run of late. They've won games with scores like 7-1 and 7-2 only to fall to loss on the next round by a similar score line. The defense has been a problem especially on road where they've allowed 40goals in ten games played. Carolinas pk has been awful at 75.00%. Backup goalie Peters is said to start with a .841save%. Pittsburgh should get many, many goals tonight. Their struggling pp is in rout to change sometime anyways with the talent they have and tonight against struggling Carolina pk the Penguins should have plenty of chances. The Hurricanes have been pretty much easy prey on road all season and now with Bernier on goal they just asking for an another beatdown (last two road games ended 7-2 and 7-4). The line is set high but I see the home side having no problem what so ever getting those four goals tongiht.

Strength 10/10
Date 19/11/2010

Reasoning Detroit Red wings have been great winning 12 games from 16 played so far. On home ice (as expected) they've been excellent winning eight games (one after regulation) from ten games played outscoring their opponents 43-25. They are currently riding a four game winning streak from which three latest wins have come with atleast two goal difference. Special teams have been good with pp at 19.4% and pk at 84.6%. Howard will start on goal (.921save%). Minnesota has the worst offense in the league with only 40 goals scored during 17games played (2.35goals per game) but they've been able to hold off opponents allowing only 39 goals (tied 1st). This is mostly to great defense ofcourse and you can't give to much credit to Backstrom who has held opponents to 1.91 goals per game with a .938%. Luckily he won't be starting tonight as Theodore will be guarding the net. He has played only three games so far with a 3.02GAA and a .909%. Detroit Red Wings has a clear upperhand in tonights match. They are pretty much a better team in every aspect of the game then the visitors and it's hard to see Wild's defensive-minded gamestyle working tonight. It tells alot that Minnesota is going with their backup goalie tonight (white flag anyone?). Odds are low but this should be a cake walk for the Red Wings.
