We’ve got five games on deck for Tuesday in the NHL, and we’ve got a four-leg parlay at nearly a 13/1 payout to go with it.

Before I reveal this mega parlay, don’t forget to check out our picks for the side and total on every NHL game first. We’ve been on a roll this hockey season, and our experts are on fire right now. Don’t miss out on their picks for all five of today’s games.

Here’s our four-team parlay for Tuesday:

New York Islanders -1.5 (-105)

Carolina Hurricanes -1.5 (-105)

Pittsburgh Penguins -1.5 (+140)

Edmonton Oilers ML (-190)

Parlay odds: +1296

For this play, we’ve got three favorites on the puck line and one on the money line. Let’s break each of them down.

New York Islanders -1.5 (-105)

The New York Islanders suffered a surprising 4-2 loss to the Buffalo Sabres on Monday night. The Islanders now lead the season series 6-1 as they head into their final matchup on Tuesday. It’ll likely be Ilya Sorokin that gets the start in net for New York tonight to give some much-needed rest to Varlamov. Sorokin is only allowing an average of 2.19 goals per game with a .918 save percentage this season. The Islanders have lost four out of their last six games and need to take advantage of their last matchup against the last-place Sabres.

Buffalo was able to snap a four-game losing streak on Monday as they picked up their first win against New York this season. Expect a bounce-back win from the Islanders in this one as they try to move up the standings in the East Division against one of the worst teams in the league. The Islanders have covered the puck line in five of their six wins against the Sabres this season and the same should be expected in this one.

Carolina Hurricanes -1.5 (-105)

This is the tail end of a back-to-back between the Chicago Blackhawks and Carolina Hurricanes. The Canes had a massive win and continue to maintain their lead in the Central Division. Carolina outshot the Blackhawks 38-17. In their six meetings, the Canes have now won four games. They’re doing a great job limiting their opponents’ goals, holding them to an average of 2.33, the third-best in the league. Despite Chicago’s talents on the powerplay, Carolina has the fourth-best penalty-kill working at 84.6 percent. The Hurricanes have now won four in a row and Chicago has lost five in a row.

Kevin Lankinen is expected to start for the Blackhawks which could be good news for the Hurricanes. He’s lost his last four starts and has allowed three or more goals in each of those games. With only four games left, they’re almost mathematically eliminated from the playoffs while the Hurricanes are battling for the number one seed. James Reimer is expected to start for Carolina and he’s posting an impressive 15-5-2 record with a 2.66 GAA and .906 SVP. Carolina has a home record of 18-3-4.

Pittsburgh Penguins -1.5 (+140)

The Pennsylvania in-state rivalry will be on display for one final game this season on Tuesday night with the Philadelphia Flyers hosting the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Penguins have been dominant lately, winning six of their last eight games, vaulting them to first place in the East Division. Over their last seven games, they are averaging 3.71 goals for and 2.29 against on the heels of some great goaltending. Tristan Jarry has been outstanding for Pittsburgh and will lead them into the playoffs as he is 4-1 in his last five starts with a .948 save percentage and 1.60 goals-against average to go along with two shutouts.

This will also be the second game back for Evgeni Malkin after an injury sidelined him on March 17. Jeff Carter has been holding his spot since being traded from the Kings at the deadline and he has four points in his last six games. The Flyers are looking for the season to end as they have lost three of their last four games and are 4-6-1 in their last 11 games.

Edmonton Oilers ML (-190)

This game will be the second half of a back-to-back between these teams. On Monday night we saw Mikko Koskinen get the start in goal. That means Mike Smith should be getting the green light in Tuesday’s game. Through 26 games started, he has an 18-6-2 record with a 2.30 GAA and a .924 SVP. It is no secret that the Oilers will only go as far as Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl will take them. When they are on their game there are not many people who can stop them.

The Canucks have been doing the best they can since their return from battle with COVID. In their last six games they are 1-5. Their playoff hopes are slowly starting to fade if they haven’t already completely vanished. The Canucks have looked tired, and this will not be good going up against the speed of McDavid. They have struggled offensively this season, as they are averaging only 2.52 goals per game. That’s not likely to be enough to keep up with the elite players on the Oilers.
