Occasionally we tell you to hawk the under but today we are going to do something different and here it goes...thanks to Kevin as always.

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

Carolina Hurricanes @ Boston Bruins - HURRICANES +1.5 [Puck Line Bet] (-120)
(Note: I'm risking 1.20 units to win 1 unit)

Believe it or not, the Hurricanes who have just 18 wins on the season are a perfect 3-0 against the Bruins this season. Carolina has beaten Boston 4-2 and 3-2 at home and 4-1 in Boston back in October. The Hurricanes are coming off a 5-2 loss in New York on Tuesday, but are 4-2-2 in their last 8 games. The Bruins enter tonight off a come from behind 4-3 win against Ottawa, and are 4-3-1 in their last 8 games.

The Hurricanes will need Cam Ward to play like he has been lately if they want to pull off another victory against the Bruins. Ward has allowed more than 2 goals against just once in his last 10 starts. In the Hurricanes last 12 games they have either won the game or lost by just one goal in 10 of the 12. In the Bruins last 11 games they have only won by 2 or more goals twice. Right now the Bruins aren't playing good enough hockey to be this big of favorites, and the Hurricanes are playing better as of late. Already beating the Bruins three times this season I like the value here getting a goal on the puck line. Take Carolina to keep it tight.

Chicago Blackhawks @ Edmonton Oilers - OILERS TO WIN (+155)
(Note: I'm risking 1 unit to win 1.55 units)

The Chicago Blackhawks are coming off a 3-2 overtime loss in Vancouver on Tuesday night, which makes them losers of three straight games. Both other losses came against the Predators. The Blackhawks are 29-15-9 on the season, but just 10-9-3 on the road. Chicago has lost 5 straight road games coming into tonight. Edmonton is just 19-26-5 on the season, but a respectable 13-8-3 on home ice. The Oilers beat Colorado at home Tuesday night 3-2, and have gotten points in three straight games (winning two of those). Devan Dubnyk has allowed just 5 goals against in his last 3 games where he faced 113 shots against (.965 SV%). These two teams have met three times this season, with Edmonton wining two of the three.

The Blackhawks won 6-3 at home back in November, but the Oilers came right back with a 9-2 home win just 6 days later. In the third meeting the Oilers upset Chicago in Chicago on January 2nd by a score of 4-3. Dubnyk was in net for the 4-3 victory in Chicago. Note that the Oilers are 9-2 in their last 11 games as a home underdog. The Oilers have proven they can beat the Blackhawks this season, and Dubnyk has the ability to steal games. Edmonton has been good all season at home, and I like the value we are getting on them tonight.

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

Good luck tonight and have fun making those picks....we may have a few of what went right and wrong on Twitter later.
