Philadelphia Flyers at New Jersey Devils

The ageless wonder Martin Brodeur has stood tall winning six of his ten starts helping the defending Eastern Conference champion New Jersey Devils to a smart 8-2-2-1 start. On the other side inconsistent netminder Ilya Bryzgalov losing seven of thirteen starts has Flyers at 6-7-0-1 overall with a dismal 2-6 record on the road. Brodeur on a 4-0 streak at home vs Flyers including a shutout win this season stick with Devils as they improve they're sparkling 6-1 record vs the division.

San Jose Sharks at Chicago Blackhawks

Blackhawks return to the United Center did not get off to a good start as they fell 3-2 to Anaheim in a shootout. Still Blackhawks remain a league-best 10-0-0-3 on the campaign. Great spot for Chicago, the Sharks were on some kind of mission opening the campaign winning seven straight behind Patrick Marleau's 9 goals, 5 assists and Joe Thornton's 3 tallies, 11 helpers. But, Sharks have fallen on hard times losing six straight with Marleau notching just 1 goal, Thorton 1 assists over the skid including a 5-3 loss to Chicago. Look for Chicago to make it 6-1 on home ice vs Sharks.

Sharks at Blackhawks: What Bettors Need to Know
By Covers.com

San Jose Sharks at Chicago Blackhawks (-145, 5.5)

Still in search of their first win this month, the San Jose Sharks will attempt to do something on Friday no team has been able to achieve thus far this season - defeat the Chicago Blackhawks in regulation. San Jose ran the table in January, beginning the abbreviated campaign with seven straight victories. The club's fortunes have changed completely in February as the Sharks have gone 0-3-3, scoring more than two goals only once during the winless streak while being shut out twice.

San Jose, which is 0-1-1 on its six-game road trip, would like nothing better than to be the first team to prevent Chicago from earning at least one point. The Blackhawks started the season with a six-game winning streak before falling in a shootout to the Wild in Minnesota on Jan. 30. They have gone 4-0-2 since, including a 3-2 shootout loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday in the opener of their seven-game homestand. Chicago is four away from setting the NHL record for most games without a regulation loss to start a season - a mark currently owned by the 2006-07 Ducks, who opened the campaign 12-0-4.

ABOUT THE SHARKS (7-3-3): Matt Pelech's first stint with San Jose lasted just one game as the right wing was assigned to Worcester of the American Hockey League on Wednesday. Pelech, who appeared in five contests with the Calgary Flames during his only previous season in the NHL in 2008-09, had 11:23 of ice time while engaging in a fight against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday but was a healthy scratch for the 1-0 overtime loss to the Nashville Predators the following night. The Sharks are hoping to avenge a 5-3 home loss on Feb. 5 in which it squandered a pair of two-goal leads in the first period.

ABOUT THE BLACKHAWKS (10-0-3): Nearly everything is clicking for Chicago thus far this season. The one part of its game that needs work, however, is the power play. The Blackhawks rank 16th in the league at 18.2 percent after a 1-for-6 performance on Tuesday. They spent all but 1:20 of overtime with the man advantage but were unable to produce the winning goal. Patrick Kane had his five-game goal-scoring streak snapped against Anaheim but extended his point streak to seven contests with an assist. Kane, who is tied for second in the league in scoring with 20 points, has gotten his name on the scoresheet in all but one of Chicago's 13 games.

TRENDS:

* Home team is 5-1 in the last six meetings.
* Under is 6-0 in Blackhawks’ last six home games.
* Under is 8-2 in Sharks’ last 10 overall.
* Blackhawks are 5-1 in their last six vs. Pacific foes.

OVERTIME:


1. San Jose returns to Chicago next Friday for the fifth game of its road trip.

2. The Blackhawks had played only twice at the United Center before hosting Anaheim on Tuesday.

3. The Sharks are 2-for-34 on the power play over their last eight contests.

Re: NHL Betting News and Notes Friday, February 15

Friday's NHL Betting News and Notes
By Covers.com

Take a look at our quick-hitting betting notes for all eight games on the NHL schedule Friday.

Boston Bruins at Buffalo Sabres (+124, 5.5)

Probable goaltenders: Anton Khudobin (BOS), Ryan Miller (BUF)

Boston has collected nine of a possible 10 points on the road (4-0-1), including two in its last meeting with Buffalo - a 3-1 triumph on Sunday. The Sabres could benefit from some production on the power play. Buffalo is just 1-for-27 with the man advantage this month. The Sabres are 1-4 in their last five home games.

Philadelphia Flyers at New Jersey Devils (-138, 5)


Probable goaltenders:  Ilya Bryzgalov (PHI), Martin Brodeur (NJ)

After a 2-6-0 start, the Flyers are 4-1-1 in their last six contests, including a 3-2 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday in the second of a season-high six-game road trip. New Jersey has taken the last five straight meetings, including a 3-0 victory on Jan. 22, when Martin Brodeur made 24 saves en route to extending his NHL record for shutouts to 120. The under is 5-0 in the Flyers’ last five games against Atlantic opponents.

Pittsburgh Penguins at Winnipeg Jets (+134, 5.5)

Probable goaltenders: Marc-Andre Fleury (PIT), Ondrej Pavelec (WPG)

Jets goaltender Al Montoya suffered a lower-body injury in Tuesday’s loss and is week-to-week, meaning Ondrej Pavelec will be between the pipes after posting a 3.28 GAA and .886 save percentage thus far. Winnipeg’s penalty-killing is a league-worst 67.5 percent, but the Jets have killed 11 of 15 penalties at home. Winnipeg took the previous meeting by a score of 4-2 at home on Jan. 25 and the home team is 4-1 in the last five clashes.

Anaheim Ducks at Detroit Red Wings (-120, 5.5)

Probable goaltenders: Viktor Fasth (ANH), Jimmy Howard (DET)

Viktor Fasth improved to 6-0-0 in his first NHL season after turning aside 28 shots as Anaheim recorded a 3-2 triumph over Chicago on Tuesday. With Jonas Hiller nursing a lower-body injury, Fasth has been stellar and boasts a stingy 1.74 goals-against average. But the Red Wings are also solid in goal. Jimmy Howard is 7-2-1 with three shutouts in his career versus Anaheim. The under is 9-0 in the Ducks’ last nine games playing on two days rest.

San Jose Sharks at Chicago Blackhawks (-135, 5.5)

Probable goaltenders: Antti Niemi (SJ), Ray Emery (CHI)

San Jose ran the table in January, beginning the abbreviated campaign with seven straight victories. The club's fortunes have changed completely in February as the Sharks have gone 0-3-3, scoring more than two goals only once during the winless streak while being shut out twice. Chicago (10-0-3) is four games away from setting the NHL record for most games without a regulation loss to start a season - a mark currently owned by the 2006-07 Ducks, who opened the campaign 12-0-4. The under is 6-0 in the Blackhawks’ last six home games.

St. Louis Blues at Calgary Flames (+107, 5.5)

Probable goaltenders: Jake Allen (STL), Leland Irving (CGY)

This game features two teams that are deadly with the man advantage, so scoring could be aplenty if the penalties begin to pile up. St. Louis has the best power play in the NHL this season, scoring on 34.7 percent of its opportunities and Calgary is tied for second in the league on the power play with a 27.5 percent conversion rate. The over is 7-0-2 in the Blues’ last nine games overall.

Dallas Stars at Vancouver Canucks (-184, 5)

Probable goaltenders: Kari Lehtonen (DAL), Cory Schneider (VAN)

Vancouver enters on a six-game winning streak and could be bolstered by the return of C Ryan Kesler (shoulder, wrist). The Canucks have displayed great scoring depth thus far as 14 different skaters have netted at least one goal. Stars netminder Kari Lehtonen is riding a personal five-game winning streak, allowing a total of eight goals in that span. The over is 9-1-1 in the last 11 meetings in Vancouver.

Columbus Blue Jackets at Los Angeles Kings (-188, 5)

Probable goaltenders: Sergei Bobrovsky (CBJ), Jonathan Bernier (LAK)

Coming off their biggest offensive output of the season, the Columbus Blue Jackets begin a six-game road trip Friday against the Los Angeles Kings. Columbus, which posted a 6-2 victory over the struggling San Jose Sharks on Monday, had scored a total of six goals over its previous three games. Los Angeles is returning home from a 2-3-0 road trip that concluded Monday with a 4-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues. The Blue Jackets are 4-1 in their last five Friday contests.
