NHL free tip
Today there s no games in the NBA , but we ll continue with a hockey game from NHL .
In Canada , at 07,30 , at Scotiabank Place , Pittsburgh at Ottawa .
After a great start in the season , Ottawa had a few bad results , pretty unusual for them .They re back tonight on home court after a lost game in Buffalo 4-2. In the last 6 games they won 3 ( 2 against Montreal ) and lost the other 3 .
Martin Gerber likely will be back in net for Ottawa, which has yet to lose consecutive games this season. Gerber has a league-high 13 victories and is 2-0-0 in as many games lifetime versus Pittsburgh despite a 3.01 goals-against average.
On the other side, both Crosby and the Penguins (8-11-2) are trying to bounce back after a 2-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday. Not only did he have his 19-game points streak end in the defeat, he also took a tripping penalty that led to a power-play goal that created a two-goal deficit in the third period Pittsburgh could not overcome.
Sidney Crosby and his Pittsburgh Penguins were run out of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals last season by the Ottawa Senators in five games.
I m expecting today to see the Senators bouncing back really strong and winning without any doubts by at least 2 goals .
So today s free tip is :
*Ottawa must win in regular time .
