Kevin gives us a quick hitter before we head for the road and a few winners tonight maybe?

=================================

We have 10 games on the NHL board tonight, and I have one play going..

Tampa Bay Lightning @ New York Islanders - ISLANDERS TO WIN (-111)

Don’t look now but the Islanders have won 3 of their last 4 games, and even got a point in their loss which was a shootout loss in Chicago. The Islanders successful 4 game road trip included wins against New Jersey, Buffalo and Dallas. On the season the Islanders are 8-11-5, and 5-6-2 at home. Tampa Bay dropped their 4th straight game last night in Ottawa, making them just 1-5 in their last 6 road games. On the season the Lightning are 11-13-2, but are just 4-9-2 on the road. The Lightning are giving up 3.47 goals against per game on the road this year. Mathieu Garon is expected to be in net tonight - he is 5-5-1 on the season with a 2.47 GAA and .915 SV%.

The Islanders will have Al Montoya in net who has been solid, with a 4-3-2 record, 2.17 GAA and .931 SV%. New York has finally gotten their top line going, with Matt Moulson’s 6 goals last week earning him “1st Star” in the NHL rankings. Tavares has recorded 5 assists in his last two games, while their third line mat Parenteau had 7 points on the 4 game road trip. The Islanders have won 5 of these two teams last 7 meetings, and have taken 7 of their last 9 at home vs Tampa Bay. Playing better hockey right now I like the Islanders to continue their success over the Lightning, and they are listed at a generous price at home. Take the New York Islanders to win tonight.

============================================

All in all expect a couple surprising overs to hit, and especially one in Vancouver where another wild game could erupt between the Avs and Canucks.  Also take a look at Nashville covering tonight, they are due for a home cover.  Lastly take Winnipeg and the money line, Boston may finally drop one in a tough place to play.  Those back to backs can be rough on any team, even the Bruins.  There you have it as we will have more on Twitter tonight.
