With the price its at Sens Puck Line looks like the way to go. Pens got a ton of guys going to the Olympics and the Sens are fighting for points in the middle of that East heap. They will be hungrier and they will want it more. Pens are clearly the more skilled team. They are at home and coming off a loss. If it wasn't for those 2 factors I'd be looking at a ML wager but as it is I think the Pens are too dangerous to wager against SU here but the Sens will fight hard, keep it close, may force OT, a SO or even steal a W. Sens PL and may wager the Reg Tie. BOLTA

good outlook bud but the Olympic break is still a week away though if, your meening they will rest sum guys?

Sens have played much better of late though. No confirmation yet on the either tender yet though.

cheers

Pitt gonna roll the guns out tonight and get these 2PTS. Buff on wed may be a relaxer for them going through the motions and trying to avoid any late injury prior to Olympic showdown.

Pens still sour about that loss in the desert the other night too....

Pens win 5-3 and score 3 PP goals.

I think the Olympics is distracting some of the players and taking away from the level of focus they usually have this time of year. With the added pressure of security and a family's safety it's got to be a lot to deal with. I've noticed most of the best teams in the league who are always consistent are slipping and losing some games they usually wouldn't. Look at the  Sharks, Hawks, Pens, Ducks to name a few. Then look at teams that have few or no players going to Sochi but are in the middle of a playoff race and are now surging in the standings. Sens, Jets, Canes. I'm not saying that all the teams with Olympic stars will lose all the games they play against teams in tight playoff races, (The Stars are a good example of a team led by players going to Sochi who are starting a hot streak, and Price is a player who is playing better the closer it get) but I think there is something there. What do you think? Am I nuts and just looking too hard for something that isn't there or could there be a correlation? There sure have been a lot of long shot dogs taking out big time favs the last little while. I'm not savvy enough to do the proper research that would be needed to show it's more than a hunch so any feedback would be appreciated. BOLTA

There may be some influence on some players but as a whole i dont think its too big a factor. This is the home stretch and the teams you mentioned have significant leads and the pts arent as valuable to them as they are to a team that is hovering around 8th.(There are quite a few in the muck of the hunt)    

Any team can win on any night in the NHL these days. Back up tenders are better then ever and theres not too many weak links... you may as well pick the money.
