As we get ready for the final weekend of the NHL regular season, we’ve got a great 10-game slate to enjoy tonight. The featured matchup takes place in Dallas with the Stars hosting the Winnipeg Jets, where the former has a chance at not only the #1 seed in the Western Conference, but the 2024 Presidents’ Trophy. We’ll be mentioning that award again in our NHL parlay picks for today, so let’s get started.

Along with our NHL mega parlay, be sure to check out all of our NHL predictions for today’s action!

NHL Parlay Picks (4/11)

Red Wings vs. Penguins over 6 goals (-130)

Rangers -1.5 (+225)

Senators ML (+170)

Parlay odds +1452

Red Wings vs. Penguins over 6 goals (-130)

While we have a potential Western Conference Finals preview on deck, we also have matchups that feature teams that won’t be in the Stanley Cup playoffs. However, we can still enjoy them to the fullest from a betting perspective. The Detroit Red Wings and Pittsburgh Penguins were once perennial postseason teams, but that has not been the case the past 2 seasons. Even still, they have elite skating talent with Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Patrick Kane and Alex DeBrincat, among others. 

Therefore, it’s no surprise that when they take the ice together, we generally see fireworks. In 4 of their last 5 meetings, we’ve seen a minimum of 9 goals scored, which includes a matchup 3 weeks ago on St. Patrick’s Day. They’ve been trading wins back and forth, and with how inconsistent they’ve been all year, we’d rather not have to trust either side to come out victorious.

New York Rangers -1.5 (+225) over Philadelphia Flyers

This is a matchup on the complete opposite end of the spectrum. Firstly, the Metropolitan Division rivalry between the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers features what could be a playoff series. Also contrary to our first pick, we don’t expect many goals to be scored in this matchup. That should favor New York, as they’ve been known to win low-scoring games since Igor Shesterkin won the Vezina Trophy 2 seasons ago. 

They suffered a rare loss the last time they were on the ice, and with them sitting just 1 point above the Stars for the aforementioned Presidents’ Trophy, they should be as motivated as ever. They’ve beaten the Flyers in 7 straight games now and 9 of the last 10, but they’ve been far from blowouts. In fact, each of the last 4 wins have come by just 1 goal. So, rather than trying to force value and take the puck line, we’re going to combine the Rangers winning with a low-scoring game, as 3 of the last 4 have stayed under the total.

Ottawa Senators ML (+170) over Tampa Bay Lightning

We’re staying in the Eastern Conference to finish off our NHL parlay picks for today, this time with 2 teams in the Atlantic Division. Rather than 2 teams out of the playoffs or 2 teams both in the playoffs, we have one of each in this matchup. Admittedly, it’s easily the hardest sell of our NHL parlay picks, especially with how well Nikita Kucherov of the Tampa Bay Lightning has been playing. 

However, despite the Ottawa Senators not being a great team, they’ve been the kryptonite of the Lightning. They’ve now won 4 of their last 5 matchups, and not only that, but each of them has been by multiple goals! That includes the most recent, which was also in Tampa Bay. Ottawa has also been in solid form recently, going 6-4-0 in their last 10 games, with 2 of those losses coming against a very strong Florida Panthers team.
