There are 11 games on the schedule in the NHL on Thursday, November 18th, 2021. Let's take a look at each game and make some picks as well. 

Tampa Bay Lightning -135 Philadelphia Flyers +115 Total: 5.5

The Bolts are proving why they are the defending champs and I think we are getting a good price with the better team here. The Flyers are off to a hot start to the year, but I trust Tampa's goaltending more in this matchup.

Pick: Tampa Bay Lightning -135

Pittsburgh Penguins -145 Montreal Canadiens +125 Total: 5.5

I have not been inspired by this Penguins team and even though the Habs are having a miserable season, I do not think there is any reason why the Pens should be -145 on the road at this point. I will take the Canadiens with the plus money to go with them. 

Pick: Montreal Canadiens +125

New Jersey Devils +160 Florida Panthers -185 Total: 6

This is a revenge spot for the Panthers as the Devils absolutely embarrassed the Cats in the last game between these two. I think Florida gets that revenge in front of the home crowd. 

Pick: Florida Panthers -180

New York Rangers +150 Toronto Maple Leafs -170 Total: 5.5

This should be a very entertaining matchup between two teams that are in the playoff conversation early in the year. I think the team that makes the first mistakes loses this one, and I expect a low-scoring battle either way. 

Under: 5.5

Calgary Flames -180 Buffalo Sabres +155 Total: 5.5

The Sabres have been a tough out this season and although the Flames are off and running this season, I think Buffalo at least keeps this one close. I could see overtime but I think we get a one-goal game here so I will take the 1.5 with the home dog. 

Pick: Buffalo Sabres +1.5

Dallas Stars +120 Minnesota Wild -140 Total: 5.5

The Stars have not impressed with a 6-6-2 record and I think the Wild earn another close victory on home ice here. The kings of one-goal wins earn a tight victory at Xcel Energy Center on Thursday. 

Pick: Minnesota Wild -140

San Jose Sharks +135 St. Louis Blues -155 Total: 6

I will gladly take the plus money with the road team here in San Jose. The Sharks survived the COVID-19 bug and after a slumber-filled performance against the Avs, the team bounced back and beat a good Wild club. I like the Sharks' chances to earn another upset here. 

Pick: San Jose Sharks +135

Columbus Blue Jackets -155 Arizona Coyotes +135 Total: 5.5

This is not going to be a great game to watch by any means and I think this one is low-scoring as well. The Coyotes' offense has yet to get things going and the Blue Jackets' goaltending should be too much for Arizona here. I will take Columbus and the under. 

Pick: Under 5.5

Winnipeg Jets +135 Edmonton Oilers -155 Total: 6

The Oilers are looking for some revenge as well on Thursday as the Jets just beat them in Winnipeg 5-2. I do not think Edmonton gets it, as the Jets have owned the Oilers as of late and I think they get another victory, this time on the road.

Pick: Winnipeg Jets +135

Carolina Hurricanes -140 Anaheim Ducks +120 Total: 5.5

The Ducks are playing exciting hockey with a lot of their young guys stepping up to the plate and delivering on the scorers' sheet. I say we take another shot with the Quackers as Anaheim has been very profitable as a dog this season. 

Pick: Anaheim Ducks +120

Detroit Red Wings +145 Vegas Golden Knights -175 Total: 5.5

This has the makings of being a surprisingly entertaining hockey game and I think a lot of goals are in store. Who would have thought that Vegas would be below-average in goals against this season but the fact of the matter is, both team's defenses have struggled. 

Pick: Over 5.5
