This has been a great week in the NHL with plenty of storylines, highlights and impressive individual performances. It gets even better on Thursday thanks to a huge 13-game slate. The first pucks drop at 7:00 pm ET and with the last puck being dropped at 10:30 pm ET, action will go all night long. There is a ton of intrigue on tonight’s NHL schedule as several teams are battling to move up the standings or keep pace. We’ve created a 3-game NHL mega parlay for tonight’s action at +812 odds, which you can read below. You can also check out our NHL predictions for picks on today’s games.

Bruins ML & Over 6 (+128)

Red Wings -1.5 (-115)

Kings -1.5 (+114)

NHL parlay odds: +812

Boston Bruins ML over Buffalo Sabres & Over 6 (+128)

These teams have gone in very opposite directions, both overall this season and recently as well. The Sabres have lost 4 consecutive games by a combined score of 19-10. Their 22 points are the 3rd-fewest in the Eastern Conference. Meanwhile, the Bruins are tied for the most points in the Eastern Conference and have rattled off 3 straight wins. This one looks better for Boston.

The over also has appeal as it has hit in 4 of Buffalo’s last 6 games, as well as in 4 of their last 5 on the road. The total has also gone over in 7 of Boston’s last 10 games and in 4 of their last 5 games against Buffalo. The high-end offensive talent in this one looks good for another over.

Detroit Red Wings -1.5 over San Jose Sharks (-115)

The Red Wings are just buzzing lately. They are 6-1-0 in their last 7 games with the only loss being a narrow 3-2 defeat to a great Rangers team. Detroit is also 4-1 in their last 5 games played at home and they are 3rd in the Atlantic among a stacked division and conference. The Red Wings will also get an added jolt through their locker room as recent acquisition Patrick Kane will be making his debut tonight.

There is no need to overthink this one too much. Detroit is the better team in this game that also happens to be in better form. Not to take away too much from the Sharks because they have actually had a decent past week and a half. But all in all, they are a rebuilding team and, for all intents and purposes, this one should be all Red Wings.

Los Angeles Kings -1.5 over Montreal Canadiens (+114)

The Canadiens are a very respectable 11-11-3, which is showing progress after last season’s struggles. However, the Kings are just that good and should comfortably take care of business tonight. Los Angeles leads the NHL with the fewest goals allowed per game and they also score the 2nd-most goals per game. Stunningly, the Kings have yet to lose a road game this season. They are 10-0-0 on the road in 2023-24 and 7-3 on the puck line.

The Kings enter this game as winners of 7 of their last 8 with 5 of those wins being by 2+ goals. They now have the best goal differential in the NHL and would have a favorable matchup against most teams in the league. The Canadiens are no exception. Until or unless the Kings slow down even a little bit, they are difficult to fade. We get plus-money odds with this puck line which is great value.
