Columbus Blue Jackets (30-18-12) at Philadelphia Flyers (32-20-7)
Game Winner
Philadelphia Flyers @ -150

I'm tempted by Columbus and the plus money, but the fact is that the Blue Jackets are sliding right now and that’s not good when you have to go on the road and take on a Flyers team that’s been extremely tough at home this season. I just think that the Flyers are the team in somewhat better form here and have been really good on home ice. I’ll lay the juice with the Flyers here.

Toronto Maple Leafs @ Pittsburgh Penguins
Game Winner
Pittsburgh Penguins @ -137

Even as a Leafs homer, I’ve been trying to find an angle that makes sense to take Toronto here but the fact is that the Leafs looked bad for most of that game against Buffalo. Maybe Frederik Andersen hasn’t been 100% since coming back from injury. Pittsburgh continues to be a model of consistency in the NHL. The Penguins just keep rolling along, winning games left and right no matter what adversity’s gotten in their way. I just think the Penguins are the team in the better place right now. I’ll lay the juice with the Penguins at home here.

Carolina Hurricanes (33-21-4) at Nashville Predators (29-22-7)
Game Winner
Nashville Predators @ -125
1.00 unit

The Carolina Hurricanes have won six of the last seven meetings against the Predators but they've been rough on the road as of late. The defense is starting to slip a little bit. The Nashville Predators are coming off back to back impressive wins over the Blues and are currently enjoying their best stretch of the season. It has thrown themselves back into the playoff race. I'm not stepping in front of the Predators. I'm certainly not backing the Canes on the road.Take the cheap price with Nashville.

Arizona Coyotes @ Dallas Stars
Game Winner
Dallas Stars @ -160
1.00 unit

The Arizona Coyotes have fallen apart over the last month and aren't a team I'm trying to get behind on the road or in the underdog role. The Dallas Stars are back on one of their hot streaks and should like their chances here given that they've won nine of the last 10 meetings against the Coyotes. These teams seem to be heading in opposite directions and the Coyotes are starting to show their true colors of not being quite there yet. I'll take the Stars and the somewhat reasonable price, as you can argue they should be priced much steeper. (This review is the opinion of the writer "Randy’s Pick" associated with Pick Dawgz)

Minnesota Wild @ Vancouver Canucks
Game Winner
Vancouver Canucks @ -135
1.00 unit

The Minnesota Wild have won three of the last four meetings against the Canucks, so I considered the plus money here, especially with the Canucks struggling to close out games over the last two weeks. However, the Vancouver Canucks have been absolute money on their home ice and have been kind to bettors in the favorite role. Even with this current losing stretch, the Canucks are still the eighth most profitable team in the sport. I'll take the reasonable price and the Vancouver Canucks at home.
