There are just over 2 weeks remaining in the NHL’s regular season with plenty remaining to shake out. Across 8 games on tonight’s slate, there are several teams that will be battling for their playoff lives. This slate is set to deliver in a big way and is one fans will not want to miss. Playoff-style hockey is already being played and the result is a great, entertaining product on the ice. Let’s get into my 3-leg NHL parlay for today’s action, and you can also find out our experts’ NHL predictions for tonight’s big matchups.

Capitals ML (+114)

Panthers -1.5 (+114)

Canucks vs Golden Knights Under 5.5 (+100)

NHL parlay odds: +815

Washington Capitals ML over Buffalo Sabres (+114)

The Capitals are one such team looking to get a playoff ticket punched. They are barely clinging to a playoff spot with just 9 games to play. The only way Washington can continue to fend off playoff contenders nipping at their heels is to keep collecting points. Washington is 6-2-1 in their last 9 games which included impressive wins over the Jets, Hurricanes and Red Wings. They have won 11 of the last 15 played head-to-head against the Sabres and should play with plenty of urgency given the importance of these 2 points. Getting plus-money odds for the better team in better form is solid value.

Florida Panthers -1.5 over Montreal Canadiens (+114)

The Panthers have been a bit hurtful for bettors over their last 9 games, but the Canadiens present a good get-right spot for playoff-bound Florida. The Panthers would like nothing more than to claim the top spot in the East and the NHL to possess home-ice advantage throughout the playoffs. With that, these are 2 points that the Panthers intend to not give away. They have won all 3 head-to-head matchups this season by a combined score of 13-5. Florida is the better team and will be playing playoff-style hockey. Look for this team to come out with some jam and win with authority.

Vancouver Canucks vs Vegas Golden Knights Under 5.5 (+100)

In the first 2 head-to-head matchups between the Canucks and Golden Knights this season, both games went under the total. With final scores of 4-1 Golden Knights and 3-1 Canucks, both teams have flexed great goal prevention in games that each averaged a total of 4.5 total goals. Trends for both teams recently only reinforce their head-to-head unders trends this season. The total has gone under in 6 of Vancouver’s last 7 games and in 4 of their last 5 on the road. The under has also hit in 5 of Vegas’ last 6 games. This indicates we’re getting some good value on under 5.5 at -plus-money odds.
