Tuesday brings the first of 3 double-digit slates in the NHL this week, as there are 13 games on tap tonight. A few teams are fighting for playoff lives, while a few playoff formalities will be battling one another in some serious big-time matchups. This will be a great night of NHL hockey so if you can get any obligations out of the way, tonight is the night to tune in. Let’s get into my 3-leg NHL parlay for the action, and you can also find out our experts’ NHL predictions for tonight’s big matchups.

Red Wings -1.5 (+140)

Hurricanes ML (-162)

Kings -1.5 and Over 5.5 (+154)

NHL parlay odds: +855

Detroit Red Wings -1.5 over Columbus Blue Jackets (+140)

Something has to give with the Red Wings if they are going to make the playoffs. With 1 win in its last 9 games, Detroit has played itself out of a playoff spot. Despite that, the Wings are still very much alive for that last spot. They get what should be a favorable matchup tonight to collect a much-needed 2 points.

The Blue Jackets and Red Wings have met twice this year. Detroit won both games by scores of 4-0 and 5-4. The Blue Jackets sit somewhat comfortably at the bottom of the Eastern Conference, as they have endured a season to forget. Not much has changed of late. The Red Wings are the better team and will be playing with more urgency to win this game with authority.

Carolina Hurricanes ML over New York Islanders (-162)

The Hurricanes and Islanders have trended in opposite directions at a very important time in the season. New York is winless in its last 4, which is its 3rd ugly streak in as many months. Meanwhile, Carolina has won 6 of its last 7 games and has been red hot for the better part of 3 months. The ‘Canes have shown no signs of slowing down.

In the Hurricanes’ current run of 6 wins in 7 games, they have a +19 goal differential. That is an average goal differential of +2.71 goals per game, which includes a loss mixed in. This team is just bullying opponents right now. There has not been any indication from either side of this matchup that the result will differ.

Los Angeles Kings -1.5 over Chicago Blackhawks & Over 5.5 (+154)

The Kings beat the Blackhawks 5-0 on Friday and could stand for a repeat performance tonight. Los Angeles is in a playoff spot, but just by 4 points with a couple teams nipping at its heels. The Kings need these 2 points and have a very favorable matchup to collect them. Similar to Detroit, Los Angeles is the far better team and will be playing with added urgency.

The Blackhawks have either scored or allowed 5+ goals in 4 consecutive games. In the 5 games prior they scored or allowed 4+ goals per game. The volatility of this team lately, led by their overall weakness in goal prevention, give the over a good look. With a lower total to hit of 5.5 goals, there is plenty of appeal to this over given recent trends and an inability to stop the puck.
