Free NHL Proline Picks For January 12, 2012
Ottawa Senators (2.55) vs. New York Rangers (1.57); Total 5.5
Neither the Ottawa Senators nor the New York Rangers could be playing much better hockey right now. The Senators are coming off a 5-1 win over the Penguins two nights ago and have now won 6 of their last 7 games. Anderson has been great in goal for the Senators. Anderson is confirmed to start tonight’s game. The Rangers are coming off a 2-1 win over the Coyotes and they are even hotter than the Sens winning 1o of their last 11 games. Lundqvist is like a brick wall in goal for the Rangers as evidenced by his great numbers: 1.85 GAA & .939 save %. The Rangers may be the best defensive team in the league. The Blue Shirts have held their opponents to 2 goals or less in 13 of their last 15 games. Which team’s hot streak will get cooled off tonight?

Ottawa Senators vs. New York Rangers Prediction:
I am not looking to bet against either of these teams right now. The Senators paying 2.55 is very tempting but it is tough to go against a Rangers team at home that is 13-3-2 at MSG. Instead it is the total in this game I am looking at. Currently the total in this game is 5.5 goals (1.77 for the Under) at Bodog Sportsbook. Whenever I see the total of a Rangers game at 5.5 I give it a close look. When you think of the Senators you don’t think of defence first but Anderson has been awesome in goal for the Sens during their hot streak. And we know how good Lundqvist is in goal. Lundqvist is confirmed to start this game. I see this game being a hard fought low scoring game between two teams with hot goalies playing some great hockey. I don’t see either team reaching 4 goals in this game. I’ll take the UNDER 5.5 goals at Bodog Sportsbook for 1.77.
