4-Unit Play. Take #57 Arizona (+160)
(7:35) p.m., Thursday, Feb. 25)
Florida may be getting back Gudbranson and Barkov but they will be without Huberdeau due to an injury tonight against the Coyotes. This could be a blow to the Panthers considering they have only scored 9 goals in their last five games. The high flying offense that was dominant a month ago has subdued and Huberdeaus absence will hinder it even more. Robert Luongo made 29 saves against the Jets the other night but prior to this he was allowing at least 3 goals in each of his previous five starts. The Coyotes are on a three game skid but haven’t been playing bad over the last five games. They beat the Canadians (6-2), Stars (6-3) and lost to the Blues (6-4), Caps (2-3) and Lightning (1-2). Besides the Blues game they have played really well and are improving defensively. With Luongo underperforming and the value in this pick take the Coyotes tonight in Florida.
5-Unit Play. Take #66 Calgary (+125)
over NY Islanders
(9:05) p.m., Thursday, Feb. 25)
The Flames sit in second to last place in the Pacific division and are third to last in the West. The Flames were expected to do some great things this season after they reached the playoffs last year but we need to remember that this squad is extremely young and it has shown over the course of the season. Even with that being said I still like the Flames at home tonight. They are a different team in that building and are fueled by the home fans. With the Islanders coming off a huge win in Minnesota the other night everyone should be looking for that let down game tonight. I like the value on the home side tonight and think Calgary will come to play tonight.
Best of Luck – Strike Point Sports
