Chicago Blackhawks @ Montreal Canadiens
Game Winner
Chicago Blackhawks @ +158
1.00/1.58

The Chicago Blackhawks are on the end of a back to back after playing an overtime game in Ottawa, so Montreal should have the edge based on the rest advantage. However, the Chicago Blackhawks have won eight of the last 10 meetings against the Canadians and are playing well enough overall to where you can strongly consider them in spots like this. The Blackhawks defense has picked up a lot over these last two weeks and they've also held their own on the end of a back to back. I don't see how anyone can turn down this price with the road team.

Philadelphia Flyers @ St Louis Blues
Spread
St Louis Blues -1.5 @ +155

The plus money with the Flyers is tempting, but the fact remains that the Flyers aren’t as good on the road as they are at home and Philly, despite a solid win against Boston, has still had struggles regardless of where they’re playing. St. Louis has been pretty much money at home this season and the Blues come into this game winning nine straight on home ice. I’ll side with St. Louis on the puck line to get some value out of the bet as I think the Blues make it ten straight here.

Montreal Canadiens (27-24-7) at Boston Bruins (34-11-12)
Match Winner
Boston @ -220


The Canadiens need to pick up wins regardless of who or where they play, and their recent run of form could make the plus money worth a look. However, while Montreal does have a win over Boston this season, the Habs have lost the last two meetings with Boston by a combined score of 11-2. Montreal needs this game, but Boston has been too good at home to look past here.
-------------------------------------------------------------------


Calgary Flames (29-22-6) at Los Angeles Kings (19-33-5)
Match Winner
Calgary Flames @ -135
1.00/0.74


Los Angeles has played their best hockey at home by far this season. However, the losses are piling up to the point that the Kings just don’t have any value regardless of where they’re playing. Calgary has started to pick up their play on the road as of late, and the fact of the matter is that the Flames are just the better team here. I’ll lay the juice with Calgary on the road in this spot.
-------------------------------------------------------------------


Chicago Blackhawks (25-23-8) at Vancouver Canucks (31-21-5)
Match Winner
Vancouver Canucks -149
1.00/0.67


The Chicago Blackhawks have been road warriors over the last month or two and have had no issue winning on the end of back to backs, so there's value in the plus money here. However, the Vancouver Canucks are due for a bounce back victory after this little rough patch and they've been dominant on their home ice for the most part lately. With the rest advantage and dominance on their home ice, I'll lay the reasonable price with the Canucks.

Philadelphia Flyers @ Florida Panthers 7:08 p.m.
Game Winner
Florida Panthers @ -130
1.00/0.77

The Philadelphia Flyers are the hotter team in this matchup, and they just beat the Panthers rather easily a few days ago, 4-1. However, these meetings are key in a high playoff race, and you have to think the home team will have the edge in each matchup. In fact, the home team has won nine of the last 10 meetings between the Flyers and Panthers. I'll gladly lay the cheap price with the Panthers on their home ice.
----------------------------------------------------------

Arizona Coyotes @ Ottawa Senators 7:38 p.m.
Game Winner
Arizona Coyotes @ -135
1.00/0.74

Normally I’m not about laying this kind of juice with a team that’s struggling the way Arizona is, losing eight of their last ten games. However, at least the Coyotes are trying to win the games and the loss on Tuesday was a small sample of bad bounces not going Arizona’s way with the disallowed goal in overtime. Ottawa just can’t win anywhere right now and while Ottawa has done their best work at home, I’m not sure it really matters. I’ll lay the juice with Arizona on the road here.
----------------------------------------------------------

St Louis Blues @ Vegas Golden Knights
Game Winner
Vegas Golden Knights @ -150
1.00/0.67

Normally, I’d consider taking a flyer on St. Louis as Vegas probably isn’t worth laying this kind of price right now, even at home. However, St. Louis hasn’t been great on the road to begin with, and you’d have to imagine that St. Louis will have Jay Bouwmeester on their minds and it’s hard to get over a scenario like the one that happened on Tuesday night on a quick turnaround, even with a day in between to let it pass over. I just think St. Louis won’t fully be in the right head space for this game and the Golden Knights can take advantage. I’ll lay the juice with Vegas at home here.
----------------------------------------------------------

Detroit Red Wings @ New Jersey Devils
Game Winner
Detroit Red Wings @ +160
1.00/1.60

It's hard to find spots to back the Detroit Red Wings, as they continue to lose at an unreal clip and are head & shoulders the least profitable team in the sport. However, the New Jersey Devils aren't lighting the world on fire in their own right and home ice hasn't helped them a whole lot. Also, the Red Wings have won four of the last five meetings against the Devils. There's probably much better options on a stacked Thursday NHL card, but I'd take a shot in the dark with big plus money and the Red Wings if forced to pick.
----------------------------------------------------------

New York Rangers @ Minnesota Wild
Game Winner
Minnesota Wild @ -140
1.00/0.71

The New York Rangers are a team to watch down the stretch, as it feels like they've figured out their defensive issues and they're starting to finish games in a way they couldn't earlier in the season. I'll watch the Rangers closely and always consider them in the underdog role. With that said, the Minnesota Wild are enjoying one of their better stretches of the season and have been money in the home favorite role. The Minnesota Wild have also won six of the last nine meetings against the Rangers. I'll lay the juice with the Wild in this spot.

Los Angeles Kings @ Colorado Avalanche
Game Winner
Colorado Avalanche @ -250
1.00/0.40

The Colorado Avalanche are battling for first place in the Central Division, while the Los Angeles Kings are trying to somehow work their way out of the basement of the Pacific Division. Colorado has won five of the last six overall and four of the last five on home ice. In complete contrast, the Kings have lost five of the last six and Los Angeles has lost eight of the last nine when playing on the road. Stats clearly show that the Kings have a poor team.
--------------------------------------------------
7:08p.m.

Toronto Maple Leafs @ Ottawa Senators
Game Winner
Toronto Maple Leafs @ -190
1.00/0.53

The Toronto Maple Leafs have won five of the last eight meetings against the Senators and need to take advantage of these games if they're going to keep chipping away in the playoff standings. The Ottawa Senators are piling up the losses at an unreal clip and are currently the third least profitable team in hockey behind the Kings and Red Wings. The Toronto Maple Leafs can throw in stinkers from time to time, but I'll side with the road team.
--------------------------------------------------
10:08 p.m.

Washington Capitals @ Arizona Coyotes
Game Winner
Washington Capitals @ -140
1.00/0.71

Washington leads the Metropolitan Division by five points over Pittsburgh and by seven points over the New York Islanders. The Capitals have won five of the last six played away from home. Arizona has suffered from two consecutive losses and 9 losses over the last eleven played. The Capitals are averaging 3.54 goals per game while Arizona’s anemic offense is generating just 2.70 goals per game.
--------------------------------------------------
10:30p.m.

New York Islanders @ Vegas Golden Knights
Game Winner
New York Islanders @ +155
1.00/1.55

The Vegas Golden Knights haven't had much success in the favorite role, aren't winning at home and they're currently the fourth last profitable team in hockey behind the Senators, Kings and Red Wings. The New York Islanders seem to be climbing out of that slump they were in a few weeks ago, and they're back to being the third most profitable team in the sport. In terms of value, the Islanders and the plus money may be the best bet on the board for Saturday.

Anaheim Ducks @ Vancouver Canucks
Game Winner
Vancouver Canucks @ -160
1.00/0.63

The Ducks are 4-0 it's last 4 games playing on 2 days rest, 18-38 in their last 56 road games and 2-7 in it's last 9 Sunday games. The Canucks are 8-1 in it's last 9 games as a favorite, 14-3 in it's last 17 home games and 16-7 in it's last 23 overall. The under is 4-1 in Ducks last 5 road games. The over is 5-2-1 in Canucks last 8 overall. The Ducks are 11-5 in the last 16 meetings in Vancouver and 8-2 in the last 10 meetings. The favorite is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings.

The Anaheim Ducks have won eight of the last 10 meetings against the Canucks, so a case can be made for the plus money, however, this team is awful on the road and the defense is horrendous most nights. The Vancouver Canucks have been one of the better home teams in the league over the last month and have the offensive horses to expose that Ducks defense. I'll side with the Vancouver Canucks and the reasonable price.
------------------------------------------------------------

Dallas Stars @ Ottawa Senators
Game Winner
Dallas Stars @ -165
1.00/0.61

The Dallas Stars are on a nice little hot streak and should like their chances against a Senators team that can't do much of anything right. Usually, I'll give the edge to the home team with both clubs on the end of a back to back but the Senators have won just eight games since November 25. There's not much value to getting behind them this season. The Dallas Stars have also had little trouble winning on the end of back to backs. I'll lay the juice here with the Stars.
------------------------------------------------------------

Chicago Blackhawks @ Winnipeg Jets
Game Winner
Winnipeg Jets @ -145
1.00/0.69

The Chicago Blackhawks are coming off a solid win Sunday night but they looked like a team that ran out of gas before that match up. Now, I question how they'll do on the end of a back to back. The Winnipeg Jets have been a bit inconsistent and haven't been able to take advantage of home ice but they have won seven of the last nine meetings against the Blackhawks, and that includes a 5-2 victory just last week. Hard not to like the Jets and the cheap price at home.

The New York Islanders have cooled off drastically over the last month and have been rough on the road in these exact spots. The Arizona Coyotes looked like it
was left for dead before playing a brilliant 60 minutes against the Washington Capitals, the type of performance that could give it needed boost as it continues
to fight in a crowded playoff race. I'll take the Coyotes at home and the cheap price based on what we saw Saturday.
--------------------------------------------------
Washington Capitals (37-16-5) at Vegas Golden Knights (30-22-8) 6:08 p.m.

The Vegas Golden Knights should be the favorites here given that this is a big match up with the history between these clubs and it has the home ice advantage. However, the Washington Capitals have won six of the last seven meetings against Vegas, and the Golden Knights aren't the same team at home that it was
over the years. The Washington Capitals are also money making machines in the underdog role and are still the fourth most profitable team in the sport. Give me the road team and the plus money.
--------------------------------------------------
Tampa Bay Lightning (39-15-5) at Colorado Avalanche (33-18-6) 8;08 p.m.
Game Winner
Colorado Avalanche @ +100
1.00 unit

The low line with Tampa Bay is extremely tempting given the hot streak that the Bolts are on right now posting their second 10-game winning streak of the year. However, this line is way too thin given the circumstances and I’m thinking someone knows something. Pavel Francouz probably starts here and you can argue that he’s been the better goaltender for the Avs this season. The Avs are due for a better performance after struggling lately and Colorado has played it's best
hockey on home ice this season. It won’t be a popular pick but I think Colorado is the way to go here.
