Florida Panthers vs. Montreal Canadiens NHL Betting Odds & Pick from Jesse Schule: March 30th 2017

| March 30, 2017

Florida Panthers vs. Montreal Canadiens
NHL Betting Pick: Montreal -161 odds (March 30th 2017)

The Florida Panthers have lost 13 of their last 18 overall, and they play on the road in their third game in four nights at Montreal tonight. Florida is banged up, with injuries to starting goaltender Roberto Luongo, top defenseman Aaron Ekblad and backup goaltender James Reimer. It’s not clear who will start between the pipes for the Panthers tonight, but it’s thought that Luongo may be ready to return to action.

The Habs are gearing up for a long playoff run, and they’ve won 11 of their last 14 overall. Carey Price has looked like the best goalie in the world here in March, with a record of 8-2 and a 1.59 GAA. I picked Montreal to win the Stanley Cup at 25-1 odds before the season started, and I am feeling pretty good about that bet heading into the playoffs. I had high expectations for Alexander Radulov, and he’s been a beast all year. The Habs are going to be a tough opponent for anybody at this time of year, and the Panthers are a team that likely doesn’t have a lot of gas left in the tank.

Vancouver Canucks vs. St. Louis Blues NHL Over-Under Prediction from Mike Lundin: March 23rd 2017

| March 23, 2017

Vancouver Canucks vs. St. Louis Blues
NHL Over-Under Prediction: Under 5.5 goals (March 23rd 2017)

The St. Louis Blues are going for their fourth straight win and ninth in 11 games when they host the Vancouver Canucks Thursday night. The Nucks had lost six straight with just a total of nine goal scored prior to a 5-4 OT win at Chicago on Tuesday, and I think goals will come at a premium for the Nucks again tonight after that rare goal explosion.

The Blues have played terrific defense lately and the under is 10-1-2 in their last 13 games playing on one days rest, which they are here after a 4-2 win at Colorado on Tuesday.

We can also note that the Under is 6-1-3 in the last 10 meetings at Scottrade Center and 28-13-10 in the last 51 meetings overall.

Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Buffalo Sabres NHL Betting Odds & Pick from Will Rogers: March 21st 2017

| March 21, 2017

Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Buffalo Sabres
NHL Betting Pick: Pittsburgh -185 odds (March 21st 2017)

The set-up: The 45-17-9 Pittsburgh Penguins can clinch a playoff spot with a road win over the 30-31-12 Buffalo Sabres Tuesday night. What’s more, with some help from the Calgary Flames (who play at Washington), the Pens could find themselves in the lead for the Presidents’ Trophy (more in a bit). The Sabres won 2-1 last night in Detroit but won’t have any time to savor the victory, with this quick turnaround against the defending champs.

Pittsburgh: The Caps and Blue Jackets each own 100 points atop the ‘loaded’ Metropolitan Division, with the Penguins checking in with 99 points. The Caps host the red-hot Flames, winners of 12 of their last 13 tonight, while the Blue Jackets are idle. Therefore, a Pittsburgh win and a Washington loss would leave the Pens with 101 points and the Caps and Blue Jackets at 100. Pittsburgh has outscored its opponents 10-4 in the last two games as the Pens have moved closer to their franchise record-tying 11th straight postseason berth. Captain Sidney Crosby recorded half of those goals to raise his season total to a league-high 40 and move within two points of Edmonton’s Connor McDavid (82) for first in the race for the Art Ross Trophy.

Buffalo: The Sabres are looking for their third consecutive victory, after concluding a four-game road trip with 2-1 triumphs in Anaheim and Detroit.However, it’s no rest for the weary with this game tonight against the defending champs. Jack Eichel opened the scoring for Buffalo in Monday’s win on the power play, with his 21st goal of the season. He missed the start of the season with a high ankle sprain but has been producing at a top-notch rate since returning; he has 50 points (21 goals, 29 assists) in 52 games. Goalie Robin Lehner turned away 34 shots in the win and has been one of the few positives for the Sabres through this trying season. He owns a 2.64 GGA & .922 save percentage in 52 games.

The pick: Pittsburgh can’t control what happens in Washington with the Flames and Caps but expect them to win here, clinching that 11th straight playoff berth.

Los Angeles Kings vs. Edmonton Oilers NHL Odds & Pick from Will Rogers: March 20th 2017

| March 20, 2017

Los Angeles Kings vs. Edmonton Oilers
NHL Betting Pick: Edmonton -135 odds (March 20th 2017)

The set-up: The 34-30-7 LA Kings lost 5-2 in Calgary last night, after completing  a seven-game homestand 4-2-1. The loss leaves the Kings six points behind Nashville for the second wild card spot in the West. Meanwhile, the Oilers beat the Canucks 2-0 at home on Saturday and will host the Kings tonight, as they wrap up an eight-game homestand in which the team has gone 4-2-1 at Rogers Place.

LA Kings: The Kings won a pair of Stanley Cups (2012 & 2014) and have been a perennial contender for much of the past decade. However, they are currently below the playoff cut line and if they miss the playoffs, there certainly would be speculation that an aging group may have reached the end of the line. The Kings have just 11 games left on the schedule but three of them are against the Oilers. So, how the Kings do against the Oilers will have a major bearing on if they gets back to the post-season or not.

Edmonton: The Oilers enter on a three-game winning streak after that 2-0 win on Saturday. Edmonton currently owns the first wild-card spot in the Western Conference but is only six points behind San Jose for first place in the Pacific Division. With a victory Monday, Edmonton can leap past both Calgary and Anaheim and move into second place in the Pacific.

The pick: The Oilers can ‘sniff’ ending their 10-season playoff drought and have outscored opponents 16-5 during their current three-game winning streak. I say Edmonton makes it four straight wins, here!
