Montreal put up a spirited battle against Toronto on Saturday night, scoring 3 times on the Leafs, who mimic closely the defensive style of the Sharks. Montreal actually dominated a great deal of that contest. I don't think the Canadiens' high level of good play was solely due to the game being played against Toronto, on a Saturday night, and at home at the Bell Centre. If the Habs have truly found their game then the score will most certainly go higher than 5. Over 5 is the solid play tonight in the Shark Tank.

After watching the entire Coyotes-Bruins game on Saturday, I confirmed my suspicion that Arizona is one of the weaker teams in the NHL this season. The Bruins handled the Coyotes easily. The Stars dominate in every phase of the game and, if the Stars stay out of the penalty box, the Coyotes will find it difficult to find scoring chances. The Stars will score, the Coyotes may not. Under is the play here.
The Sabres have been underwhelming so far this year, and their 1-4-1 start may blind some to the fact that they can and will score goals once they get on track. The win against a decent Anaheim club in their last game may be a sign they are ready to show their true colors. Las Vegas has been this year?s surprise- expansion teams rarely win four of their their first five and once again Vegas will start rookie Malcom Subban, in goal. This game has the makings of a free-wheeling contest- Over 5.5 is the play.
Yu Darvish is on a roll and I love getting the Dodgers as underdogs Tuesday night at Wrigley. In his last four starts, Darvish has struck out 28 while allowing two earned runs. He'll extend the Cubs' offensive woes (3 runs in two games) as LA takes a commanding series lead.

Astros starter Lance McCullers went 0-3 with an 8.63 ERA over his last eight starts, and now he's facing a Yankees team that's been white-hot at home. Lay it as the Bombers even the series.
