Let’s break down each of the legs one by one.
Minnesota Wild ML over the Tampa Bay Lightning (+125)
This is the tail end of a back-to-back for both the Wild and the Lightning, however, we think Minnesota has a leg up heading into this one. The Lightning’s backup goaltender, Brian Elliot is getting the start tonight and it’ll be just his third start of the NHL season. His lack of playing time, along with his poor statistics of 3.08 GAA and .880 SVP could prove to work in the Wild’s favor. Both teams lost in regulation last night but in very different fashions. The Wild stayed close with the Florida Panthers all night, and if not for an empty-net goal, they may have been able to force overtime. The Wild scored a goal with seven seconds left, they didn’t quit until the final whistle. The Lightning on the other hand had a major third period collapse where they allowed four unanswered goals in the third after leading 3-1. It was an embarrassing display and with their backup playing tonight they could lose two in a row.
The Wild are currently at the top of the Central Division, they’ve been playing extremely well all season and have had great depth scoring every night. We think +125 provides great value on the road; they have a 6-4- home record while the Lightning have a 4-3-2 home record. Take the Wild on the money line tonight.

New York Rangers -1.5 over the Buffalo Sabres (+100)
The New York Rangers have been one of the best teams in the Metropolitan Division all season. They currently have a 4-1-1 record on home ice this year while Buffalo is struggling on the road with just a 2-4-1 record. The Rangers will be looking for their fifth home win in a row tonight. Despite starting the season off hot, the Sabres have started to fumble and are just 3-6-1 in their last 10 games played. The Rangers, on the other hand, are 6-2-2. The offensive talent on the Rangers completely outweighs the talent on Buffalo. Currently, New York has five players that are scoring nearly a point per game, the worst of those five just has three points fewer than games played. With Adam Fox and Artemi Panarin leading the way for the Rangers, this could be another good night on home ice for them. It’s unclear exactly who’s starting in net for either team, but if Igor Shesterkin gets the starting nod for the Rangers +100 could be considered a bargain. Igor is posting a .930 SVP and 2.39 GAA over 13 games this year, he’s one of the best goaltenders in the league despite this only being his third season in the NHL.
The Rangers have the better offense, and they’ll likely have the better goaltender tonight. They’ll be looking to extend their home game winning streak and climb closer to the top of the Metropolitan. Take the Rangers on the puck line.

Washington Capitals -1.5 over the Seattle Kraken (+200)
The Seattle Kraken are currently on a six-game losing streak while the Capitals have won their last two. This is the tail end of a back-to-back for the Capitals, which could help explain the +200 odds, however, they’re coming off a pretty comfortable shutout win last night and they should be coming into tonight with the confidence and high energy they had in last nights victory. Alex Ovechkin casually had another two-goal and three-point night last night and now has 29 points in 18 games. The Washington captain is leading the way for his team in almost all departments, he’s off to one of the best seasons of his career. Washington right now is playing like one of the best teams in the league. They’re sitting third overall in the standings, and just one point behind the Carolina Hurricanes for first place in the Metropolitan. They’re currently scoring the sixth most goals per game in the league right now with 3.44 goals while allowing the third-fewest goals per game with just 2.17 goals. Seattle on the other hand is scoring just 2.76 goals per game and are allowing the most goals in the NHL with 3.88 goals per game. Allowing 3.88 goals going against Alex Ovechkin is a good sign for bettors.
We think the oddsmakers are undervaluing the Capitals tonight. Just because they’re playing a back to back on the road doesn’t mean a victory against the spread isn’t likely. This is one of the best teams in the league going up against one of the worst teams in the league; also currently on a six-game losing streak. At +200 we like the Caps on the puck line tonight.
