Betting hockey this weekend will include hockey gambling matchups of strong contenders that will be looking for Lord Stanley’s Cup next June. Friday begins the betting hockey weekend with two feature games from Europe that will be broadcast in the USA on Versus as the Florida Panthers take on the up and coming Chicago Blackhawks while the Detroit Red Wings take on the St. Louis Blues in a central division hockey gambling showdown.
Also on the Friday card will be the defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins as they open the betting hockey season against the New York Rangers. Saturday’s betting hockey schedule will feature a whopping 15 games on the board to make for a phenomenal day and night of action.
More betting hockey action will take place from Europe as the Blackhawks meet the Panthers and the Blues meet the Red Wings in rematch games. The Boston Bruins will host the Carolina Hurricanes in a betting hockey rematch from last year’s eastern conference semi finals in which the Bruins were upset.
Revenge will definitely be a betting hockey angle in this one. The Washington Capitals are feeling the love of the nation’s capital and should be an attractive betting hockey asset at home against the Toronto Maple Leafs. With interest sky high in Washington the Caps should make a strong effort at home.
The “Battle of Alberta” resumes Friday as the Calgary Flames travel to Edmonton to take on the Oilers. Calgary Flamed out at the end of last season and must shore up their defense while the Oilers are a new look team that will be rebuilding.
One of the better matchups of Saturday Night will be the Philadelphia Flyers at New Jersey Devils as both teams figure to contend for the Eastern conference title.
For late night action there is an attractive all-California matchup of playoff teams from last year as the San Jose Sharks travel to Anaheim to meet the Ducks team that eliminated them from the playoffs last year.
