Ladies and Gentlemen get your asses out of bed because while it is Friday, contrary to what Oscar worthy actor Chris Tucker once said, you do have stuff to do today. There is day-time hockey, it’s being played in Finland. I don’t know what time it starts over there but get your bet slips in because puck drops at 2 pm EST. You’re not going to want to miss this one.

Columbus Blue Jackets vs Colorado Avalanche (Nokia Arena, Tampere Finland)
CBJ ML (+200) – Colorado is dead last in the NHL in 5v5 scoring at 1.22 GPG. They have a lethal Powerplay, but Columbus has the 4th lowest PIM/GP in the league to date. The NHL isn’t bringing hockey to Finland so the refs could be the superstars. I expect a lot of 5v5 hockey and I think that gives the Jackets their best chance to get this one, let’s go with Columbus to take it in Finland (+200).
Buffalo Sabres @ Carolina Hurricanes
BUF ML (+165) – Both teams have won three in a row and both teams have given up 28 total goals in 10 games this year but Buffalo has scored 43 goals to Carolina’s 33. Too much offense from the Sabres, they’re 3-1-1 on the road so I don’t think that will be a factor. I like Buffalo on the road (+165).
