It’s a solid slate of NHL games on Tuesday with eight games taking place. Let’s take a look at a preview and a free pick for each of the games. 

New Jersey Devils +215 at Boston Bruins -244 Total: 5.5

The Boston Bruins have been a strong defensive team all season giving up only 2.57 goals per game and that will be the difference in this game. The Devils offense is going to have some major issues scoring and it wouldn’t shock me if they didn’t get on the board. Back the Bruins on the puck line.

Play: Bruins -1.5

Calgary Flames +118 at Florida Panthers -142 Total: 6

The Calgary Flames and Florida Panthers are both teams that have had success with their offense, and that will lead to a higher-scoring game. The Flames are averaging 3.2 goals per game while the Panthers are averaging 3.78 goals per game. This game is going to be one where both teams find plenty of success scoring. 

Play: Over

Tampa Bay Lighting -201 at Columbus Blue Jackets +167 Total: 5.5

The Lightning have struggled a bit losing three games in a row. In the last game against the New York Rangers, the offense couldn’t put the puck in the net, and their lack of scoring is going to let them down again. Columbus is averaging 3.2 goals per game and they will win this game and pull the upset.

Play: Blue Jackets ML +167

San Jose Sharks -110 at Detroit Red Wings -110 Total: 5.5

The Red Wings might not be a great team, but at home they have found a whole lot of success sitting with an 11-5-2 record. The Sharks offense isn’t elite, and the teams the Red Wings usually struggle against are good offensive teams. Back the Red Wings ML 

Play: Red Wings ML

Colorado Avalanche at -233 at Chicago Blackhawks +192 Total: 6

The Avalanche are averaging 4.21 goals per game while the Blackhawks are averaging only 2.21 goals per game. Colorado is going to run up the score and the Blackhawks offense is going to have no answer. Back Colorado -2.5 cash. 

Play: Avalanche -2.5

Winnipeg Jets -187 at Arizona Coyotes +164 Total: 5.5

The Winnipeg Jets haven’t been all that great this year, but they are a whole lot better than the Arizona Coyotes. The Coyotes are averaging 2.1 goals per game while their defense is giving up 3.8 goals per game. Both those are ranked the worst in the NHL. The Jets are going to find plenty of offensive success and they will win this game on the puck line. 

Play: Jets -1.5

Nashville Predators +115 at Vegas Golden Knights -135 Total: 5.5

The Golden Knights are too good of a price, and they might be the top play for this entire card. Vegas is averaging 3.54 goals per game and they are going to have no issue attacking a Predators defense that is inconsistent at best. Look for the Golden Knights to score at least four goals and they will win this game on the puck line. 

Play: Vegas ML -135

Philadelphia Flyers +120 at Anaheim Ducks -135 Total: 5.5

The Anaheim Ducks are going to be upset in this game. Over the last two games, the Ducks have only scored three goals total and they are going to struggle in this game to find the back of the net. Even though the Flyers offense isn’t great, it’s going to score enough to get the job done. Back the Flyers on the puck line.

Play: Flyers ML +120
