EDM Oilers WinEDM Oilers @ WIN Jets
Two hot teams meet in Winnipeg Saturday night as the Jets host the Oilers. The Jets have strung together two straight wins over the Wild and Kraken, while the Oilers have prevailed in 4 straight contests. Although the Jets present solid value as home underdogs, the Oilers are playing their best hockey of the season and they are not a team you want to bet against right now.
Following a very poor stretch in January that led to the firing of head coach Dave Tippett, Edmonton has skated to a perfect 4-0 record under interim coach Jay Woodcroft. The offense has finally returned to its normal form as the Oilers have scored the 2nd-most goals and have created the 3rd-most high danger scoring chances over the past 10 games. Edmonton’s defense has picked it up, as well, by giving up the 3rd-fewest goals during that span — which is very important considering this unit has been the primary issue for the team’s struggles all season. On the other hand, Winnipeg has finally strung together consecutive wins for the first teams since early January — revealing how inconsistent this team has been. The Jets have a solid lineup highlighted by Blake Wheeler and Mark Scheifele as well as a 2020 Vezina Trophy-winning goaltender Connor Hellebuyck, but they are a tough team to figure out. They rank 16th in goals per game and 17th in goals against per game and combines that with mediocre special team. The Jets have all the ingredients to be a playoff team this season, as they have been for the last couple of years, but they simply haven’t showed any sort of consistency for a long stretch of games. Therefore, the best play in this game is to take the dangerous Edmonton lineup that is playing with loads of confidence and looking to extend its winning streak to 5 games.

BOS Bruins WinBOS Bruins @ OTT Senators
In an Atlantic Division matchup, the Boston Bruins — who are finishing a 4-game road trip — head to the Canadian Tire Centre for the second time in a week to face the Ottawa Senators. When these teams met on February 12, it was a surprisingly dull game in which Boston came out on top 2-0 in a Jeremy Swayman shutout. These teams last saw action on Thursday night, seeing Ottawa hold on for a 3-1 win against the Buffalo Sabres, while Boston struggled in a 4-1 loss to the New York Islanders. The Bruins currently hold the 4th spot in the Atlantic Division, and while it is no time to show high concern they need to take notice that they aren’t locked in by any means. The Detroit Red Wings are 6 points behind them, with lots of time to go in the season. If they keep playing as inconsistent as they have been, the playoff position battle will get tight before they know it.
When this is over, the Bruins should be back in the win column. I don’t see a blowout as they may be running out of gas in the tank on this trip, but they have the better team and they know they must get back to winning games after losing the last 2 and 4 of their last 5. Give me Boston.

TOR Maple Leafs WinSTL Blues @ TOR Maple Leafs
The St Louis Blues continue with their 4-game road trip on Saturday as they play the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Blues are only 1-2-1 in their 4 games since the all-star break, which included a brutal loss in OT to the Canadiens — the worst team in the NHL — on Thursday. The Maple Leafs have been bit better than the Blues coming out of the break, going 3-2-0 in their 5 games since the stoppage, with their last 2 wins coming with a combined score of 10-3.
Offensively, the edge goes to the Maple Leafs.  They apply more pressure, ranking 4th in expected goals for, than the Blues — who rank 16th while also ranking 4th in goals scored per game. Even though the Blues rank 5th in goals scored per game, they don’t generate enough scoring chances to capitalize on them. Defensively, the small advantage goes to the Maple Leafs, as well. The Maple Leafs rank 10th in expected goals against, doing a good job of keeping pressure away from their goalies. The Blues, on the other hand, rank 25th in the same category and lean on their goaltending a little more. With St. Louis projected to start Ville Husso, the 3rd ranked goalie in goals saved above expected, the defensive gap between these teams shrinks — but not enough to give the Blues the advantage. Look for the Maple Leafs to use their offense to control the game and place your wager on the money line.

LA Kings WinLA Kings @ ARZ Coyotes
No knock to the Los Angeles Kings, but I did not think I would be thinking of them as playoff contender this far into the season. Coming off a stunning road victory last night against Vegas, the Kings are now only 5 points back of 1st place of the Pacific Division. This is a pesky team with a good mix of veterans and young guns, and I think it’s time I pay them a little respect. Making good on that promise I am taking them to win tonight, although I’m not pumping out a hot take in having them winning against the lowly Coyotes. The Kings come into tonight’s contest having won 3 of their past 4 road games and are 12-6-5 in total on the season. I do worry about short rest and a backup goalie, which is why I will only be riding the money line.
On the Arizona side of the betting equation, what can I say about this team? The Coyotes are in the middle of a full rebuild and they are 5-18 straight up at home this season. They also have the 2nd-lowest goals per game average at 2.23 and will likely struggle against a disciplined team like the Kings. With the playoffs becoming a reality for Los Angeles every game is big, this team will treat it as such tonight.

VAN Canucks WinANA Ducks @ VAN Canucks
The Anaheim Ducks travel to Vancouver to take on the Canucks in their fourth meeting of the season. Anaheim has won two of the first three, but this Vancouver team is much different now and is playing some great hockey. Since head coach Bruce Boudreau has taken over, they look like a complete hockey team that still has a chance at making the playoffs.
The Canucks lead by J.T. Miller, who has 50 points on the season. There are talks that he may get dealt at the trade deadline, but if Vancouver continues its strong play it may not be in a position to trade the veteran forward. The return of Quinn Hughes also adds a much-needed boost to the defense. He missed a couple of games due to Covid-19, but he is back to logging a huge amount of ice time and contributing in all three zones.
Anaheim is 5th in the NHL in powerplay conversion but is 19th in goals per game. The Ducks have some talented players who can score goals, but it won’t be enough to outscore their opponent. The Canucks do have the worst penalty kill in the league, but if they stay out of the penalty box then that shouldn’t be too big of an issue. Thatcher Demko has proven that he can lead this team, but it would be nice to give him some goal support. In any case, the Canucks should be able to wrap up this game in regulation.

CAL Flames -1.5SEA Kraken @ CAL Flames
The Seattle Kraken travel to Calgary to take on the Flames for the second time this season. Calgary is 9-1 in its last 10 games and is a heavy favorite to win. The Flames are led by Johnny Gaudreau and Jacob Markstrom, two players who are having fantastic seasons. Gaudreau has 63 points, including 20 goals, while Markstrom has 21 wins and a league-best 2.12 GAA. Both players are key reasons for Calgary’s success.
Seattle is having a disappointing season, but that was to be expected. The Kraken lack depth upfront and on the blue line. Their goaltending has not been good this season, and regardless of who starts in goal, it’s going to be a battle. Philipp Grubauer was expected to bring stability to the position, but his 3.18 GAA and .884 SV% leave a lot to be desired.
With Calgary being the runaway favorite to win, the puck line offers the best value. The Flames have the 2nd-best goals against per game and Seattle is 26th in goals per game. If they fall behind early, they will have to open up and start taking risks. Calgary will just capitalize on those chances and run away with the game. It shouldn’t be a close contest.

COL Avalanche -1.5COL Avalanche @ BUF Sabres
The Colorado Avalanche continue their 4-game road trip on Saturday afternoon when they play the Buffalo Sabres. These two teams played in Colorado just over 2 weeks ago and the Avalanche handled the Sabres fairly easily, 4-1. The Avalanche are currently the best team in the NHL and have only one loss in regulation in their last 21 games. The Sabres are on the opposite end, as they have four wins in their last 6 games and rank 13th in the Eastern Conference.
Offensively, this isn’t even close; the Avalanche are one of the best offensive teams in the league. They rank 10th in expected goals for and 2nd in goals for per game, scoring just under 4 goals per game. The Sabres generate pressure at a much lower rate, as they rank 31st in expected goals for while only ranking 25th in goals for per game. With the high offensive pressure the Avalanche apply, there isn’t much room for the opposition to posses the puck, giving them their 2nd overall ranking in expected goals against. The Sabres do a better job in their defensive end, only ranking 19th in expected goals against, but still allow too many goals as they rank 27th in goals against per game. Look for a dominant performance from Colorado and place your bet on the puck line.
