Montreal Canadiens forward Tomas Tatar reacts with teammate defenseman Shea Weber after scoring a goal

We’ve got seven games on deck for Tuesday in the NHL, and we’ve got a four-leg parlay at nearly a 16/1 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 seven of today’s games.

Here’s our four-team parlay for Tuesday:

Tampa Bay Lightning -1.5 (+100)

Devils/Bruins Under 5.5 (-135)

Montreal Canadiens -1.5 (+175)

Hurricanes/Blackhawks (-130)

Parlay odds: +1594

For this play, we’ve got two favorites on the puck line and two game total picks. Let’s break each of them down.

Tampa Bay Lightning -1.5 (+100)

Tampa has lost two in a row but have won five of their last seven and will be looking to end that losing streak against a Blue Jackets team that has lost four in a row by a total score of 14 to 4. In Tampa’s last seven games they are averaging 3.43 goals for and their power play is at 26.3%. The main reason for this is Victor Hedman who leads all NHL defenseman with 33 points including 19 on the power play. Add in Ondrej Palat who has four points in his last four games and Alex Killorn who has four points in his last five games and the Lightning are a well-rounded team. Columbus is trending downward as the season progresses, posting a record of 3-4-3 in their last 10 games. Over their last four games they have a goals against average of 3.50 and this will be their third game in four nights.

NHL Tampa Bay Lightning Forward Nikita Kucherov

Devils/Bruins Under 5.5 (-135)

All five previous meetings between these two teams have gone under the total for an average of three goals per game. The Bruins have had nine out of their last ten games go under the total as well. With DeBrusk and Marchand unavailable it has become even more important for David Pastrnak to step and fill the void for the Boston offense. He’s currently in a slump, going goal-less in the past three games to add to their struggles. Patrice Bergeron hasn’t scored a goal in his last seven games either. The Bruins have only scored 48 5-on-5 goals this season, which is the second lowest in the league, ahead of only the Buffalo Sabres. In their last ten games, Boston has a goals for average of 1.2 goals per game and a goals against average of 1.7 goals per game. All signs point to the under in this one.

Montreal Canadiens -1.5 (+175)

The Montreal Canadiens currently lead the season series two games to one. The Canadiens are currently sitting fourth in the North Division, with two teams right behind them. They have not played in 10 days, due to COVID-19 protocol. The Canadiens have been successful this season because of their solid depth up front. They will have Carey Price starting in goal, and he has the ability to be one of, if not the best goalie in the league. The Canadiens will be desperate, and should be able to take advantage of the Edmonton Oilers who are on the second half of a back-to-back. As he got the night off on Monday, Mikko Koskinen likely will be getting the start on Tuesday. Koskinen has a 9-10-0 record, with a 3.11 GAA and a .903 SVP. I think the Canadiens will come out flying after their 10-day break and take care of the tired Oilers.

Hurricanes/Blackhawks Over 5.5 (-125)

Both teams have exceptional offensive abilities with elite level talent on the front end. The Hurricanes are averaging 3.27 goals per game while the Blackhawks are averaging 2.83. These are two of the best teams in the league when playing on the man advantage. Carolina has the number one ranked power play in the league scoring 30.2 percent of the time, while Chicago has the third ranked power play scoring 27% of the time. Both teams are giving up around seven minutes of penalties per game, which could give either side a decent chance to get a few on the power play. Combined with the strong power play of the Hurricanes, the Blackhawks have the fourth worst penalty kill. Take the over here.
