PENGUINS at FLYERS (NHL)
Pittsburgh skates into the Wachovia Center having lost eight of its last 10 games. Philadelphia is 14-4-3 at home and has built an 11-point edge on the Pens in leading the Atlantic. FLYERS.
HURRICANES at SENATORS (NHL)
Two teams going in the wrong direction. The host Senators have dropped their last five games. Carolina has lost two in a row, only managing three goals. Ottawa (9-7-3) is far better at home this season. SENATORS...Bonus: NY Rangers (NHL).
2 FOR TUESDAY Mark Mayer... last week: 2-1, 2009: 2-1 (.667)
HEAT at TIMBERWOLVES (NBA)
No reason to get off that Minnesota bandwagon. The T’Wolves have won five straight and are 6-0-1 ATS in last 7. Miami is 1-4 ATS in its last 5 and may drag on third leg of a 6-game road trip. T’WOLVES.
CAVALIERS at GRIZZLIES (NBA)
Cleveland can win this one by 20 if focused and it seems LeBron has his guys concentrating on the task at hand. Cleveland put a lot into whipping Boston, but the 4-day break helps. Memphis is, well, Memphis. CAVS...Bonus: Ohio State (NCAA).
