The NHL is dealing with COVID issues but Sunday’s slate looks like it will still include five games. Let’s take a look at a free pick on each of the five games.
Vegas Golden Knights -140 at New York Islanders +120 Total: 5.5
The Golden Knights are an elite offensive team averaging 3.5 goals per game while the Islanders' offense has struggled all season. Look for Vegas to run up the score, and the Islanders to only finish with a goal or two. The play is with Vegas on the money line, but I will also be sprinkling a few dollars on the puck line.
Play: Golden Knights ML -140
St. Louis Blues +110 at Winnipeg Jets -130 Total: 5.5
The Winnipeg Jets made a coaching change but I’m not sure that’s going to magically allow the Jets to go on a winning streak. The Blues are averaging 3.4 goals per game and in their last game against the Stars they won 4-1. The Blues offense will find success again in this game, and the underdog will pull out the upset.
Play: Blues ML +110
Los Angeles Kings at Washington Capitals
The Washington Capitals are going to have no issue winning this game in blowout fashion. Washington is averaging 3.46 goals per game while their defense is giving up only 2.56 goals per game. The Kings are averaging only 2.67 goals per game and that lack of scoring isn’t going to be enough in this game. Back the Capitals on the puck line.
Play: Capitals ML
Pittsburgh Penguins at New Jersey Devils
The Penguins are an elite defensive team giving up only 2.41 goals per game and they are going to lock down the Devils. The Devils are averaging only 2.75 goals per game and they are going to struggle to score in this game. Back the Penguins on the money line.
Play: Penguins ML
Arizona Coyotes at Vancouver Canucks
The Canucks are playing some good hockey coming into this game having won five games in a row and over the last two games, they have scored nine goals total. Look for The Coyotes offense to continue to struggle and this game will be a blowout. Back the Canucks to win the game on the puck line.
Play: Canucks -1.5
