I've been a capper since my love for sports met my proficiency with numbers and math. The NFL and NCAAF have always been my first loves, followed by the NHL. Although I prefer sports that involve hitting people, I still love capping MLB, soccer, tennis, and even some esports. Living in Florida has its perks like year-round sports of any kind. For Mark Lammey media enquiries, please email contact@pickswise.com.

It’s been a long NHL season with plenty of excitement and disappointment alike. Whether your team is in the postseason or not, we still have 1 final slate to bet (Sunday’s random game may as well not count). Let’s enjoy it to its fullest and get a money line pick in for each game. There will be a link for each preview attached for each game. Let’s get to it!

Here is our 15-game penultimate-day parlay:

Buffalo Sabres (-130) over Chicago Blackhawks

Neither of these teams have anything to play for, but the Sabres have proven to give even the best teams fits this season. The trio of Tage Thompson, Jeff Skinner, and Alex Tuch should prove too much for a Blackhawks team that traded away goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury.

Full game preview

Florida Panthers (-280) over Montreal Canadiens

The Panthers have the President’s trophy locked up as well as the number 1 overall seed. However, they are still too deep and too talented for the Canadiens. Look no further than last night’s 4-0 win even with several skaters resting.

Full game preview

New York Rangers (-110) over Washington Capitals

The Rangers have the 2 seed in the Metro division locked up and the Capitals need this win to overtake the Penguins to avoid the Panthers in the first round. However, without Alex Ovechkin, Washington is not even remotely the same team and should fall in the finale.

Full game preview

Detroit Red Wings (+135) over New Jersey Devils

These are 2 of the worst goaltending teams in the league. However, the Devils are missing their best goal-scorer in Jack Hughes while the Red Wings have the top 2 Calder trophy (best rookie) candidates. They should play hard for the right to that award.

Full game preview

Ottawa Senators (+105) over Philadelphia Flyers

The Flyers all but mailed in this season when they traded away their longtime captain Claude Giroux. The Senators are no world-beaters either, but Brady Tkachuk is at least trying to live up to his brother on the Flames and record a few more goals.

Full game preview

Pittsburgh Penguins (-330) over Columbus Blue Jackets

The Penguins need to rebound from getting blown out by the Oilers to ensure the Capitals do not overtake them in the standings. That will allow them to avoid the Panthers in the first round of the playoffs. They should get it done against the terrible goaltending of the Blue Jackets.

Full game preview

Boston Bruins (+105) over Toronto Maple Leafs

If the Bruins pull off the upset, they can possibly surpass the Lightning for seeding. The Leafs have the 2nd seed in the Atlantic division locked up. They’ll be resting Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner, and others, allowing Boston a much better chance than usual.

Full game preview

Tampa Bay Lightning (-185) over New York Islanders

The Lightning were unable to secure the 3 seed in the Atlantic division last night. Now they need to beat the Islanders to avoid being overtaken by the Bruins in the standings. They should be too much to handle for New York on a back-to-back.

Full game preview

Minnesota Wild (+110) over Colorado Avalanche

The Avalanche can no longer win the President’s Trophy, have injuries to worry about, and have the number 1 seed clinched. The Wild need this win to maintain home ice advantage in the first round against the Blues.

Full game preview

St. Louis Blues (-185) over Vegas Golden Knights

If the Blues get this win and the Wild lose, they own the tiebreaker. That will give them home ice advantage in the first round. They should be able to do so against a Vegas team that was just eliminated from the playoffs ending a disappointing season.

Full game preview

Winnipeg Jets (+160) over Calgary Flames

This will be one of the riskiest legs in this parlay. The Flames have had the Pacific division clinched for quite some time and will have a backup goaltender in net. Jets’ Kyle Connor should look to take advantage of him to try and achieve a 50-goal season.

Full game preview

Dallas Stars (-235) over Anaheim Ducks

The Stars need this win to overtake the Predators in the wild card standings. That will have them facing the Flames in the first round rather than the Avalanche. They were unable to secure this in their last game but should be able to against a Ducks teams that just wants to go back to California for the summer.

Full game preview

Edmonton Oilers (-200) over Vancouver Canucks

The Oilers have the number 2 seed in the Pacific division locked up. However, when you have Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl, you let them pad their stats as much as possible. McDavid should add to his Art Ross trophy (most points) season.

Full game preview

San Jose Sharks (+105) over Seattle Kraken

This battle of deep-sea predators is absolutely meaningless. Seattle is an expansion team that has looked the part. Timo Meier of the Sharks should be trying to get another 5-goal game on the season.

Full game preview

Nashville Predators (-280) over Arizona Coyotes

The Predators need this win to avoid being overtaken by the Stars in the wild card rankings. That would allow them to avoid playing the Stanley Cup-favorite Avalanche in the first round of the playoffs. They should be able to dodge them by beating the worst team in the league.
