    Armadillo: Tuesday's six-pack

    Six more baseball over/under win totals for this season:

    San Francisco 81.5

    St Louis, 81.5

    Toronto 81

    Tampa Bay 77.5

    Pittsburgh 73

    San Diego 69.5


    **********

    Armadillo: Tuesday's List of 13: Nobody asked me, but…….

    13) NBA should have an “ABA Day” once a year, a Friday night with a full schedule where all the games are played with red, white and blue basketballs and the four teams who came from the ABA (Nets-Pacers-Spurs-Nuggets) wear throwback uniforms from the mid-70’s.

    12) One thing I saw on the Interweb when I was in Las Vegas but forgot to mention here; when the Eagles had their victory parade after winning the Super Bowl, a guy named Dennis who was 50 or so was there watching the parade while holding a metal urn.

    Turns out the urn held the ashes of Dennis’ late wife, who was an avid Eagle fan.

    “She was a diehard Eagles fan. I had to make sure she was here for this.” Pretty cool.

    11) Pretty good weekend for golfer Bubba Watson; he played in the celebrity basketball game at the All-Star Game Friday night, then won the Genesis Open Sunday, his 10th PGA Tour win. Watson joins Phil Mickelson as the only lefties with 10+ Tour wins.

    Watson’s wife played in the WNBA, therefore the connection to basketball; he lost 45 pounds last year with an undisclosed illness, dropped out of the top 100 ranking but obviously is doing better this year.

    10) Bill Walton was saying on ESPN Saturday night that 27,000 people apply for the 800 spots in UCLA’s School of Engineering; you have to have a perfect 4.0 GPA to have a shot to get in.

    9) St Mary’s PG Emmett Naar sprained his ankle in Portland Saturday night, didn’t play in the second half. If he cannot play, Gaels will have a short March, but one thing in their favor is the two weeks off they’ll have between the WCC tourney and the NCAA’s.

    8) This from ESPN’s Tim Kurkjian:
    Hank Aaron his 755 home runs but never hit 50 in a season.
    Eddie Murray hit 504 homers but never hit 40 in a season.
    Al Kaline hit 399 homers but never hit 30 in a season.
    Ron Fairly hit 215 homers but never hit 20 in a season.

    7) Memphis Tigers are last team to go undefeated in conference play two seasons in a row; they did it from 2007-09.

    6) Looks like Seattle is going to get an NHL franchise; they never should’ve lost their NBA team, they got screwed over by the league because they wouldn’t be extorted into building a new arena, so the team moved to Oklahoma.

    5) Six top 10 college basketball teams lost to unranked teams this past weekend. Strange season.

    4) JD Martinez finally signs with the Red Sox for $22M a year for five years. Hope he can get by on that paltry sum.

    3) Good news: there is spring training baseball on TV Friday. In three days.

    2) How great a job is NBA commish Adam Silver doing? With all the issues the NFL had with national anthem-related issues, somehow the NBA kept all that under wraps and dodged that controversy. Has to be an interesting story behind how he did all that.

    1— There are people on the Interweb who want teachers to carry guns: in 10th grade, I had a biology teacher who threw erasers at kids who weren’t paying attention (I’m old enough that I went to school when chalkboards were still a thing).

    One day, the teacher throws an eraser at a kid named Nick who was screwing around, but instead he drills the girl sitting next to him, who breaks into tears as everyone else either laughed or stared in disbelief.

    Would I have wanted this genius to have been packing heat? Ummmm……no.

    NHL Game of the Day: Lightning at Capitals betting preview and odds
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Tampa Bay Lightning at Washington Capitals (A: -125, H: +105, T: 6)

    The Tampa Bay Lightning no longer are atop the NHL in points and their lead in the Atlantic Division is in jeopardy as they begin a three-game road trip Tuesday against the Washington Capitals. The Lightning have dropped three of their last four games and three straight on the road as their defense continues to surrender goals, averaging 3.4 allowed per game this month.

    Tampa Bay recorded 51 shots in Saturday’s 4-3 loss to New Jersey but gave up a short-handed goal and three others on miscues to see its lead over Boston in the Atlantic shrink to one point. “It was just not making the right reads at the right time,” Lightning captain Steven Stamkos told reporters after the setback. “Bad changes. Bad pinches. Bad defensive-zone coverage. When we did make a mistake, they capitalized on it.” The Capitals gave up their lead in the Metropolitan Division to Pittsburgh with a 7-1 loss at Chicago on Saturday but regained the top spot with a 3-2 victory at Buffalo two days later. Captain Alex Ovechkin scored his league-leading 35th goal in Monday’s win and has recorded 42 - and 84 points - in 65 career games against Tampa Bay, which has lost five straight at Washington.

    INJURY REPORT:


    Lightning - G Peter Budaj (Late Feb, Leg), LW Ondrej Palat (Mid March, Lower Body).

    Capitals - No injuries to report.

    ABOUT THE LIGHTNING (39-17-3, 37-22 O/U):
    League-leading scorer Nikita Kucherov posted a minus-2 rating in the loss to New Jersey but registered an assist to extend his point streak to six games (four goals). Stamkos has recorded three goals in his last two contests to push his season total to 24 as Tampa Bay boasts four players with at least 20 (Kucherov, Brayden Point, Yanni Gourde) while Vladislav Namestnikov needs one to join the group. Andrei Vasilevskiy leads the NHL in wins with 34 but has struggled against Washington in his career (1-4-0, .892 save percentage).

    ABOUT THE CAPITALS (34-18-7, 35-24 O/U):
    Ovechkin has collected three goals and five assists over his last five contests to lead the team with 66 points while Evgeny Kuznetsov is second with 55 after scoring in Monday’s victory. Defenseman John Carlson notched a goal and an assist in the triumph at Buffalo to move into third on the team with 47 points, with seven coming in his last seven contests. Philipp Grubauer got the victory in net on Monday, which should mean Braden Holtby (28 wins), who is 9-2-2 with a .915 save percentage lifetime versus Tampa Bay, will get the call.

    TRENDS:


    * Lightning are 40-16 in their last 56 games playing on 2 days rest.
    * Capitals are 20-6 in their last 26 home games following a road trip of 7 or more days.
    * Over is 8-1 in Lightning last 9 overall.
    * Over is 6-0 in Capitals last 6 games following a win.
    * Over is 19-7 in the last 26 meetings.
