The set-up: As primarily a situational handicapper, this NHL season is definitely shaping up to be an interesting one, because "motivation" really does come into play on an almost nightly basis when teams are seeing each other at least twice in a row (Montreal is actually going to be playing three straight in Vancouver this week.) But in this case, from a situational stand point, I think this one definitely sets up as a lower-scoring contest between the Avalanche and Kings. These teams will play two straight in LA, with the next game coming on Thursday night.  The Kings have opened up the season 0-2, but it certainly hasn't been from a lack of trying, as they're off consecutive 4-3 overtime losses at home to Minnesota. Both totals flew well over the posted number of 5.5, but now the Kings are desperate here as they look to finally break into the winners circle. LA will be ultra focussed too facing the Avalanche, who are 1-1 after losing 4-1 to the Blues at home on Opening night, before then bouncing back for that crazy 8-0 win over St. Louis in the second.

The pick: There's usually only a handful of completely lop-sided games like that per season, and I don't foresee the Avalanche repeating that offensive outburst two times in a row. It's interesting to note as well that Colorado has seen the total go under the number in eight of its last 11 road games after scoring six or more goals in a win in its last outing. And it doesn't matter to me who gets the start in net in this one, whether its the starters or the backups, this for me is based upon the situation and the strong trend I listed. So while each team has played to some higher-scoring affairs to open up the year, everything points to a lower-scoring contest here in my opinion in the opener of this two game set.

The is a 1* FREE PLAY on the UNDER Avs/Kings.

Tuesday NHL Free play. My selection is on New Jersey +1.5 goals over New York at 7:05 pm et on Tuesday.

The Devils looked good in collecting three of a possible four points in a season-opening two-game set against the Bruins and I look for them to give the Rangers all they can handle in this matchup on Tuesday night. New York is off to a 1-1 start as well, opening with an ugly shutout loss before bouncing back with a blowout win in consecutive games against the rival Islanders. The reality probably lies somewhere in between those two performances when it comes to the Blueshirts. While this is a game they 'should' win, I'm not convinced we'll see a peak performance at this early stage of the season. Not much is expected of the Devils this season but I think they can be an upstart squad, particularly here in January. We'll grab the insurance goal in this one as I'm expecting a tightly-contested affair. Take New Jersey +1.5 goals (8*).
