  • Hurricanes keep McClement with two-year extension

    Raleigh, NC (SportsNetwork.com) – The Carolina Hurricanes and center Jay McClement agreed to a two-year contract extension on Sunday. McClement, in his first year with the Hurricanes, will earn $1.3 million next season and $1.1 million for the 2016-17 campaign. “Jay has proven to be a valuable veteran leader for our club and it was important for us to keep him in Raleigh,” said Hurricanes general manager Ron Francis in a statement. “He’s one of the league’s best face-off men and has played a key role in what currently stands as the best penalty-killing unit in team history.” McClement scored…

  • St. Louis Blues (40-18-4) at Vancouver Canucks (35-23-3), 9:30 p.m. (ET)

    (SportsNetwork.com) – Following a disappointing finish to their road trip against the league’s last-place team, the Vancouver Canucks aim to rebound on Sunday evening against one of NHL’s contenders as they host the St. Louis Blues. The Canucks wrapped a five-game swing with Thursday’s loss to the lowly Buffalo Sabres, giving them a 3-2-0 record in the swing. It was a pair of lost points for Vancouver, which is only three points ahead of both Los Angeles and Calgary for second place in the Pacific Division. Shawn Matthias, Jannik Hansen and Daniel Sedin scored the goals in the 6-3 loss,…

  • Columbus Blue Jackets (26-31-4) at Pittsburgh Penguins (35-17-9), 5 p.m. (ET)

    (SportsNetwork.com) – The Pittsburgh Penguins will try to push their winning streak to four straight games on Sunday evening when they play host to the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Penguins finished the month of February strong, posting a 4-3 victory over the Washington Capitals last time out on Wednesday. Pittsburgh’s three straight wins counter a recent three-game slide and the club is three points ahead of Washington for third place in the Metropolitan Division. The Pens also find themselves three points behind the second-place New York Rangers. In danger of getting swept in a four-game season series by the Caps,…

The Lightning are sitting second in the division with 82 points, five back of the first-place Montreal Canadiens but also just one point up on the Detroit Red Wings. Tampa Bay returned home on Friday following a 3-2-0 road trip to notch a solid 4-0 win over the Chicago Blackhawks. The Bolts return home for three in a row after this contest starting on Tuesday. Ben Bishop helped make…

  • Los Angeles Kings (29-20-12) at Winnipeg Jets (31-20-12), 4 p.m. (ET)

    (SportsNetwork.com) – After nearly matching the longest winning streak in club history a few days ago, the Los Angeles Kings are in danger of taking some big steps back. The Kings look to avoid a third loss in a row on Sunday afternoon as they visit the Winnipeg Jets. Los Angeles followed up a span of 10 losses in 12 games by ripping off eight victories in a row. That was just one shy of the longest winning streak in club history, a run the Kings failed to match with a 1-0 loss to Ottawa on Thursday. Darryl Sutter’s club…

Introduction to Betting on Hockey

Anyone who has been involved with sports betting for any length of time has probably heard the story about the down-and-out gambler who went on a horrible losing streak in football, then shifted his attention to basketball, with the same degree of non-success. He just could not pick a winner, and this was nothing out of the ordinary, as he simply did not have a firm grasp of handicapping principles. With a certain desperation, he had a conversation with a friend as he explained his woes. The friend, trying to be helpful, suggested that maybe the desperate loser could take…

Money Lines and Puck Lines in Hockey

There are a few different ways to bet on hockey, and we will go over them. The one that will be easiest for the general public to understand is the MONEY LINE, which essentially allows the bettor to place a wager on the outright winner of a game, with a price on the favorite and a price on the underdog. You will find these prices expressed in odds that are referred to as “American,” and not fractional. So as the hockey bettor, you are analyzing the “value” that appears in the line on either side, as you perceive it. Here…
