    Grand Salami - October
    October 22, 2018
    By VI News

    The Grand Salami in pro hockey is decided by adding up all the goals scored in every game scheduled for that particular day. You can wager on 'over' or 'under' the Grand Salami total. The total is set by adding up all listed 'over/under' odds for each game on that particular day.

    Note: The Grand Salami will have no action if any game is suspended or cancelled before the regulation time of three twenty minute periods. Also, regardless of the number of goals scored during the shoot out portion of the overtime, the final scored recorded for the game will give the winning team on more goal than its opponent based on the score at the end of regulation time.

    *The majority of sportsbooks do not put out a total on the Grand Salami when there is only one game on the card. For tracking purposes, we will continue to show the 'over/under' for goals and combined goals scored on days with just one game.

    Rantanen scored twice, leads Avalanche past Flyers 4-1
    October 22, 2018
    By The Associated Press

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) Mikko Rantanen had two goals, Matt Nieto and Gabriel Landeskog also scored, and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Philadelphia Flyers 4-1 on Monday night.

    The Avalanche continued their early-season hot streak and finished 3-0-1 on their four-game road trip. Landeskog had a hat trick on the trip against New Jersey and clinched this one with his eighth goal of the season early in the third period.

    Semyon Varlamov was solid in net and stopped 37 shots.

    The Flyers suffered their third home loss of the season.

    Rantanen needed only 3:23 to beat Brian Elliott for his third goal of the season and the quick lead. Nathan MacKinnon set up Rantanen for the power-play score, and they became the first players in franchise history with concurrent nine-game point streaks to start the season.

    Nolan Patrick scored a third-period goal for the Flyers. Brian Elliott finished with 29 saves.

    HURRICANES 3, RED WINGS 1

    DETROIT (AP) - Michael Ferland scored in his fourth straight game and Sebastian Aho had an assist and set a franchise record for points in consecutive games to start a season as Carolina snapped a three-game losing streak.

    Defenseman Justin Faulk also scored, and Jordan Martinook added an empty-net goal for the Hurricanes.

    Petr Mrazek, who was drafted by Detroit in 2010 and played a number of seasons with the Red wings, made 20 saves.

    Sebastian assisted on Ferland's second-period goal. The assist stretched his season-opening points streak to nine games (four goals and 10 assists), surpassing the franchise record of eight by Victor Rask (2016-17).

    Andreas Athanasiou scored for Detroit.

    JETS 5, BLUES 4, OT


    WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) - Bryan Little tied it late in the third period and Jacob Trouba scored in overtime to help Winnipeg overcome a two-goal deficit.

    Trouba took a pass from Kyle Connor and shot into an open side of the net behind goalie Jake Allen. It was Trouba's first goal of the season.

    Mark Scheifele scored twice and Ben Chiarot added a goal Winnipeg.

    Ryan O'Reilly had a goal and two assists for St. Louis, and David Perron, Vince Dunn and Colton Parayko also scored.

    Connor Hellebuyck made 30 saves for Winnipeg (6-2-1), which has points in five straight games (4-0-1).

    Allen stopped 31 shots for the Blues (2-3-3), who finished a three-game trip (1-1-1) through Canada.

    “The fact that you don’t have the confidence to run the ball when you have Saquon on the goal line in a critical 4th down situation tells you all you need to know.”
    ESPN’s Louis Riddick, after the Giants failed on a 4th-down play Monday

    Tuesday’s quiz
    When Jon Gruden won his Super Bowl for the Bucs against Oakland, who was the head coach for the Raiders?

    Monday’s quiz
    2007 Giants are the only NFL team to play in a Super Bowl the same year they played a regular season game in England- they beat Miami 13-10 in London.

    Sunday’s quiz
    James Harden played his college basketball at Arizona State.


    Tuesday’s List of 13: Nobody asked me, but……

    13) Oakland Raiders traded Khahil Mack to the Bears for two #1 picks before the season, then started season 1-5; Monday they traded WR Omari Cooper to Dallas, for another #1 pick, as they continue to plot for the future, when they’ll be playing home games in Las Vegas.

    Raiders now have three #1 picks in the 2019 Draft, which will be held in Nashville; too bad it isn’t in Las Vegas, because Raiders are going to be the center of attention. Raiders also have two #1 picks in the 2020 Draft.

    12) One of the values of Twitter is getting lot of diverse opinions; almost everyone said that the Raiders did very well getting a #1 pick for Cooper, but then on Monday Night Football, those guys are all saying the Cowboys made out on the deal. What gives?

    Ed Werder, who has covered the Cowboys for decades, pointed out that this is the third time Jerry Jones has traded draft picks for a star WR— the other two WR’s he got were Joey Galloway and Roy Williams. When your owner/GM is in his 70’s, draft picks tend to mean less.

    11) This from the legendary Gil Brandt on Twitter:
    lowest %age of players still on team that picked them (in last six NFL Drafts):

    16.0% Oakland Raiders
    16.3% Buffalo Bills
    20.5% New Jersey Giants
    20.7% Cleveland Browns
    24.6% San Francisco 49ers

    10) Denver Broncos haven’t had consecutive losing seasons since 1971 (4-9-1) and ’72 (5-9); they were 5-11 LY, are 3-4 this year. I’m guessing they’ll be a coaching change if they don’t finish at least .500 this season.

    9) Only three NFL teams haven’t played a regular season game outside this country; the Eagles, Packers, and Panthers. Philly plays Jacksonville in London this week.

    8) Would Auburn really cough up $32M to tell football coach Gus Malzahn to take a hike? Malzahn is 28-19 in conference games; the guy was a high school coach not that long ago, but do people at Auburn really have $32M lying around to get rid of a fairly successful coach? Wow.

    7) Oklahoma Sooners haven’t lost consecutive regular season games since 1999; they’re 39-0 SU in the games following their last 39 regular season losses.

    6) According to Astros beat reporter Brian McTaggart, Houston 2B Jose Altuve had surgery Friday to repair a patella (kneecap) avulsion fracture in his right knee. According to the Mayo Clinic website, an avulsion fracture occurs when a small chunk of bone attached to a tendon or ligament gets pulled away from the main part of the bone.

    Altuve played thru that injury since August 21, hitting .276; he is one tough dude.

    5) Cincinnati Reds showed very little imagination and hired David Bell as their new manager. Bell is a Cincinnati native and the son of current Reds executive Buddy Bell, and grandson of Gus Bell, both of whom played for Cincinnati.

    David Bell played for seven big league teams, but never for the Reds.

    Weird thing is that Bell doesn’t get to pick his own coaches; he will make recommendations, but the front office has the final say. Being a manager isn’t as big a deal as it used to be.

    4) If you read this space a lot, you know I love basketball, and I have the NBA package on DirecTV- its fun to watch the games, but it is becoming more difficult to actually follow the league.

    Everyone who plays/coaches in the league is pretty rich or really rich, but so few of them appear to be remotely happy— so much anger, and the season is a week old.

    I mean, Rondo/Paul got into a scuffle in their game Saturday night , and then Rondo’s girlfriend shoves Paul’s wife afterwards; seriously? Time for everyone to grow up some.

    Chris Paul got a two-game suspension for the fracas, that’ll cost him $491,962; the others, much less. Lakers’ Brandon Ingram ran into the scuffle and threw a punch; he got a longer suspension than either Paul or Rondo, but he doesn’t make as much $$$ as they do.

    3) College basketball has these “closed/secret” scrimmages between teams; I don’t understand why they’re kept secret, when there is money to be made showing them on TV.

    This weekend, North Carolina/Villanova scrimmaged, as did Minnesota/Creighton. Teams all over the country do it, but it is information being hidden and that hurts the sport.

    2) Weird doings at the U of Arizona; back in January, the Wildcats fired football coach Rich Rodriguez after six years after a sexual harassment allegation against the coach.

    Kevin Sumlin is the new coach; Arizona is 3-5 after a 31-30 loss at UCLA Saturday, when they used their backup QB in place of injured starter Khalil Tate- that backup is Rhett Rodriguez, son of the former coach.

    The kid played alright; 15-34 for 231 yards, with two TD’s, two INT’s, but it had to be so odd, a kid playing for the coach who replaced his fired father.

    1) Before Rodriguez got the Arizona job, he worked a season in the CBS Sports studio doing college football Saturdays; as soon as the Wildcats hired him, he was off recruiting; the first day CBS Sports had a show after Rodriguez quit, the crew had RichRod on as a guest via remote from Tucson.

    Here’s the thing; the whole one-hour show, they left the chair Rodriguez had sat in all season empty, thats the regard they held him in. After that I always rooted for his teams. Saturday night, I was rooting for his son.

    This week's NHL betting predictions and picks: Crosby vs McDavid

    A head-to-head battle featuring two of the game's best players goes Tuesday in Edmonton when Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins take on Connor McDavid and the Oilers. We cover this game and much more in our NHL betting cheat sheet with need-to-know betting notes, goalie profiles and injury news to help you crack the NHL odds for the early week matchups.

    Pouncing Panthers

    The Florida Panthers look to take advantage of Henrik Lundqvist being on the bench Tuesday night, and continue their recent success playing at Madison Square Garden, as they take on the Rangers. The road team is 5-1 in last 6 meetings between these two teams and while the Panthers haven’t looked like a playoff contender just yet, they are miles ahead of the Rangers on paper. New York is 1-9 in last 10 against Atlantic division opponents and so far they have just five points in eight games and are looking like a lottery team. Florida is 7-2 in their last nine road games against teams with a losing home record and are 5-1 in their last six games on two day of rest. They keep those trends moving in their favor with a convincing win on the road Tuesday night.

    Superstar Showdown

    Rogers Place in Edmonton will feature two of the league’s best players going head-to-head Tuesday night as Connor McDavid and the Oilers host Sidney Crosby and the Penguins. Much discussion has been made lately regarding which of the two is the league’s top player and, while McDavid might have the edge in terms of talent at the moment, it is Crosby who has the championships - and the Pens have a shot again this season. Pittsburgh is 16-5 in their last 21 meetings with the Oilers and they have won 4 games in a row in Edmonton. Look for that to continue on Tuesday night as the Penguins come out on top in a contest that is sure to feature plenty of offence and a few highlight reel plays.

    Special Teams

    Chicago has been one of the highest scoring teams in the NHL this season, but surprisingly most of their goals have come at even strength as they have netted just two goals at 5-on-4 and two more at 4-on-4. The Hawks take on an Anaheim team that is 24th in the league in goals per game and 12th in terms of goals against, which factors into what should be a very low scoring affair between these two sides. Anaheim has gone Under in 14 of their last 19 road games while Chicago has gone Under in four of their last five after a home loss of three or more goals. Take this into consideration and play the Under on Tuesday night.

    Extra Attackers

    The Stars have been one of the best power play units in the league so far this season, operating at 33.3% clip through seven games, and will look to take advantage of a woeful Kings penalty kill Tuesday. Los Angeles sits 26th in the league with a very pedestrian 71.4% efficiency when short handed, and if they give the Stars too many chances with the man advantage it could come back to haunt them. Dallas has had their issues with the Kings with a 6-13 record at home in their last 19 meetings, and the road team has won 4 in a row in this series, but if L.A. gets into penalty trouble this one could be over early.

    Goalie Profile

    Alex Georgiev New York Rangers

    The Rangers have gotten off to a slow start but it doesn’t fall on the shoulders of veteran goaltender Henrik Lundqvist. "King Henrik" has a serviceable 2.55 goals against average playing behind a team that has scored just 18 goals in 8 games, meaning the former Vezina Trophy winner is doing all he can to keep the Rangers in games. However, the Blue Shirts are starting backup Alex Georgiev on Tuesday night against Florida and that is a night-and-day transition as the Bulgarian national is among the league’s worst backups. Georgiev gave up seven goals in his only start this season and has a career .908 save percentage and a 3.56 GAA. Georgiev’s numbers in the AHL haven’t been much better and against a Florida side that has a ton of weapons up front that have been held in check so far this season, look for this to be their coming out party.

    Injury Update:

    The Columbus Blue Jackets get a huge shot in the arm on Tuesday night as defenceman Seth Jones will make his season debut after missing the first seven games due to injury. Jones chipped in with 16 goals and 57 points last season and helps a Columbus blue line that has given up 27 goals in seven games - that puts them 24th in the NHL in that category. The return of Jones should help Columbus’ defence in a big way while providing a spark on the power play and at even strength.

    Betting trends of note:

    * Sharks are 3-13 in their last 16 in Nashville. The Predators and Sharks are pretty evenly matched but this doesn’t look like a great spot for San Jose as they can’t seem to find a way to win at Bridgestone Arena.

    * Under is 18-7-1 in last 26 meetings in Chicago with Anaheim and is 19-9-5 overall in this series. Add in the fact that Chicago can’t score on the power play and the Ducks don’t concede a ton of goals and this one looks like a low scoring contest.

    * Coyotes are winless in their last six meetings with the Blue Jackets and are a measly 1-8 in their last nine trips to Columbus. That trend continues as the Jackets win easily.
