SHARKS at BRUINS (NHL)
Ice cold San Jose travels from frigid Columbus to equally chilly Boston. The Bruins are sailing along, having won 4 of their last 5. Plus, it’s tough to go against a 19-7-4 home mark. BRUINS.
THRASHERS at LIGHTNING (NHL)
Looks like a good spot for the home side with Atlanta having lost 6 of its last 7 games. Plus, the Thrashers have dropped both previous meetings in Tampa. The Ning are off a 1-0 win over Isles. LIGHTNING ... Bonus: Dallas Stars (Wednesday).

CAVALIERS at PACERS (NBA)
We see Cleveland coming into Conseco as around a 5-point road favorite. The LeBrons put everything into the Lakers game and that loss should linger. Last four Indiana games decided by 5 or less. PACERS.
KNICKS at WARRIORS (NBA)
The highest total I can remember was 234 for Pacers-Warriors. Golden State won 120-117. The over should be in the 230s. The first meeting in NY was 263 (Knicks, 138-125). We’ll be happy for 250. OVER ... Bonus: Houston Rockets (Wednesday).
