It’s a nice slate of NHL games on Saturday with 10 games taking place. Let’s look at a breakdown and a free pick for each of the games. 

St. Louis Blues +160 at Florida Panthers -190 Total: 6

The Panthers have played some really good hockey this season, but this is a great chance for the Blues to pull the upset. The Panthers defense has been good, but the Blues offense has also been good averaging 3.26 goals per game. Look for the Blues offense to find enough success to get the job done in this game.

Play: Blues ML +160

Columbus Blue Jackets +184 at Washington Capitals -224 Total: 6

The Blue Jackets are too big of underdogs. Although the Blue Jackets' defense hasn’t been strong, their offense has been averaging 3.19 goals per game. The Blue Jackets have lost each of the last two games against the Capitals by one goal. Back the Blue Jackets +1.5.

Play: Blue Jackets +1.5

Montreal Canadiens +170 at Nashville Predators -189 Total: 5.5

The Canadiens and Predators both have bad offenses. Montreal is averaging 2.24 goals per game while Nashville is averaging 2.74 goals per game. I expect neither team will find a whole lot of quality offense and the under is going to cash.

Play: Under

Toronto Maple Leafs -121 at Minnesota Wild +100 Total: 6

I like two plays in this game and I like them a ton. The Wild are 9-2 at home and there is no reason the Wild will lose this game. The Wild average 3.74 goals per game and they are going to light the lamp enough to score the game. Their defense at times has been suspect though, and that is going to lead to this game going over the total too.

Play Wild ML +100

Tampa Bay Lightning +100 at Boston Bruins -120 Total: 5.5

The Lightning has only been the underdog once so far this season and they lost that game. The Bruins have been a strong team at home and their defense is going to lock down in this game. Look for the Lightning to struggle to score and the Bruins will come away with the victory.

Play: Bruins ML -120

Colorado Avalanche -228 at Ottawa Senators +190 Total: 6.5

-228 is a big number to lay on the road, but they are worth every penny of that. The Avs are averaging 3.95 goals per game and against an offense that struggles to score, this game is going to get ugly early. Back the Avs on the puck line.

Play: Avs -1.5

New York Islanders -115 at Detroit Red Wings +105 Total: 5.5

This line is off. The Islanders have lost nine games in a row and now they are the favorites on the road. New York is averaging only 1.83 goals per game and their lack of scoring will let them down, even against a Red Wings offense that isn’t great. Back the Red Wings.

Play: Red Wings ML +105

Buffalo Sabres +237 at Carolina Hurricanes -281 Total: 6

The Sabres got out to a fast start to the season, but they are back to their old struggling ways. A big issue with this team has been their offense and they are going to struggle to score again in this game. The Hurricanes will score, but they aren’t going to score four or five goals. Back the under.

Play: Under

Chicago Blackhawks at New York Rangers

Igor Shesterkin has been strong for the Rangers this season and he is going to continue his success in goal. Over his last three starts he has given up four goals total and the Blackhawks are going to have issues in this game. Back the Rangers on the puck line. 

Play: Rangers -1.5

Pittsburgh Penguins -140 at Vancouver Canucks +120 Total: 5.5 

The Penguins have actually been a better away team, while the Canucks have really struggled at home. At home the Canucks currently sit with a 3-6-1 record. The Canucks are averaging only 2.41 goals per game and the Penguins are going to find success. Back Pittsburgh on the money line.

Play: Penguins ML -140
