As I have said before, everything I post I usually don't do well.

OVER 5.5 NYI/Blackhawks (-130)

I really love the OVER tonight.

It's old fart goalie night! Islanders goalie, Nabokov (38 years old) is probably among the NHL’s worst starting goalies. Add to the fact the Isle D is not that good, but they look good in their goals against as they have played poor offensives of NJ and Phoenix. The Blackhawks have faced two very good goalies in their last 2 games. There's value there.

Nikolai Khabibulin (40 years old) gets his first start tonight for the Hawks. Over his last three seasons, he has a W/L record of 26-58 with a .908 save percentage. That’s weak and for a guy with more rust than any starting goaltender in the NHL. The Islanders are young and fast and have the horses to score goals.

In my opinion, there are two prolific offenses going head-to-head against two of the worst goalies in the league.
