NHL Free Picks 1-15 Chicago Blackhawks @ Tampa Bay Lightning
Lightning (-1.5) – These two teams just played on Opening Night two days ago and the Lightning absolutely dominated the Blackhawks. The Bolts got out to a 5-0 lead before the Blackhawks were able to get a power play goal on the scoreboard late in the 3rd period. The Lightning out shot the Blackhawks 33-23 in that game and I expect a similar performance tonight from Tampa. Chicago handed Tampa four power play opportunities in that game. You just can’t beat a team that good when you are shorthanded that often. Look for another dominant performance from the Lightning tonight.
Washington Capitals @ Buffalo Sabres Free Pick
Capitals (-135) – With the new Covid style schedule we are going to have a lot of teams playing each other back to back which should make betting easier for us! The Capitals handled the Sabres last night although the Sabres battled back late to make it a game late. The Caps pulled out to a 3 goal lead in the 2nd period before the Sabres closed it to a 1 goal game two different times in the 3rd. Shots, hits, and faceoffs were all about even in this game last night but the Caps were more efficient with their shots on goal. I think the Caps are a more complete team and in a better spot than Buffalo. Washington’s young goaltender Ilya Samsonov needs to be sure not to let up when his team gets out to big leads this season because I think that will happen more times than not. The Caps should jump out to a lead again tonight and pull away with another victory.
