Thursday Night at Staples Center on a great night for NHL hockey

If there is one thing to make a sports fan happy, it’s getting to see a live game in action in your home town.  It’s even more pleasing when the team that you have wagered on comes out on top in that contest, and more money gets added to your sportsbook account! Fortunately for myself,  that is exactly what happened on Thursday night, as myself and a few friends made our way to the Staples Center once again, this time for the match-up between my favorite hockey team (the Vancouver Canucks), and the home town Los Angeles Kings.  Getting to sit right up against the glass, the game was non-stop excitement all the way to the end, where Vancouver pulled out a win 3-2. The fantastic play of Robert Luongo, the Canucks goalie, ensured a win even after the LA Kings led a 3rd Period onslaught of five power plays, and the Canucks scoring once on only 4 shots in that final period.  Needless to say, it was a great time had by all, and placing a wager in one of our featured online sportsbooks at gave me a little something extra to come home to at the end of the night!

Though this game was certainly a great one for placing a wager on, there was certainly plenty more action for sports fans on Thursday to make for exciting betting opportunities. Elsewhere around the NHL, there were great games being played from coast to coast, including 8 overtime contests, four of which went into shootouts to determine the victor. Buffalo squeezed by Ottawa 6-5, the New York Rangers were downed by the New Jersey Devils 3-2, the New York Islanders beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-2, and Montreal nipped the Nashville Predators 6-5, all teams winning on shootout victories. Now I don’t know about you, but when you have 12 hockey games played on a given night and 8 of those games go to overtime, that is exciting sports for any fan to place wagers on.  Like I have said before, if you haven’t been paying much attention to hockey this year, or taken the opportunity to wager on the NHL in one of our featured sportsbooks, you are certainly missing out. No game offers as much non-stop action, and high flying excitement for you wagering dollar. With the playoffs right around the corner, all the teams in playoff contention (which happen to be about 23-24 teams out of the 30 that are in the whole league) will be playing harder, faster, and more intense than ever.

Well folks, tomorrow is already Friday.
