  Montreal Canadiens vs New Jersey Devils

As previously discussed in one of my previous articles, the Montreal Canadiens are currently experiencing a very difficult season. The team finds itself at the bottom of the Atlantic division with a record of 23 wins and 29 losses. In their last two games, they lost to both the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Hurricanes, which is certainly a cause for concern. One of the team’s biggest issues this season has been its scoring rate, which currently stands at 2.63 points per match. Additionally, their defensive has been awful, as they tend to allow 3.66 points per match.

On the other hand, the New Jersey Devils are having an excellent season. Currently standing in second place in the Metropolitan division, the team has a record of 37 wins and 14 losses. They come into this match with a two-game winning streak. Their average scoring rate of 3.46 points per match and they tend to allow only 2.63 points per match.

This will be the second time these two teams face off this season, with the Devils have won the first match back in November.

How the game will play out

The current form of the Canadiens is nothing short of disappointing, and it’s difficult to envision them winning this match. As a result, I think the Devils will win this one.

My pick: The New Jersey Devils with a puck line of -1.5 at (-141) iBet.

Toronto Maple Leafs vs Buffalo Sabres

The Toronto Maple Leafs are having a fantastic season, sitting comfortably in second place in the Atlantic Division with an impressive record of 34 wins and 15 losses. Although their recent loss against the Blackhawks was unexpected, they have managed to win 3 out of their last 5 games. The Maple Leafs have a potent offence that has been performing remarkably well, averaging 3.40 goals per game, while their defence has been equally impressive, allowing only 2.67 goals per game.

Meanwhile, the Buffalo Sabres have a record of 28 wins and 22 losses, placing them in fifth place in the Atlantic Division. The Sabres have been enjoying a great season, thanks in large part to their offence, which has been leading the way with an impressive average of 3.70 goals per game. However, their defence has been struggling, allowing an average of 3.44 goals per game.

The upcoming match between the Maple Leafs and the Sabres marks the second time these two teams will face each other this season. The Maple Leafs emerged victorious in their first encounter back in November.

How the game will play out

The Sabres and Toronto are playing each other, and it’s going to be an exciting match. While both teams are strong, I would pick the Toronto Maple Leafs to win.

My pick: The Toronto Maple Leaf’s puck line of -1.5 at (+138) Sports Interaction.

Vancouver Canucks vs Nashville Predators

The Vancouver Canucks are currently holding a record of 22 wins and 30 losses, placing them in the 6th spot in the Pacific Division. Their recent victory against the Flyers has boosted their confidence going into their next game. However, the Canucks are facing a challenging season, with one of the worst goals-against averages in the NHL, allowing an average of 4.02 goals per game. On the other hand, their offensive line is stepping up with an average of 3.36 goals per game.

In contrast, the Nashville Predators have a record of 26 wins and 22 losses, positioning them in the 5th place in the Central Division. Their recent defeat against the Wild has left them eager to get back on the ice and make a comeback. Unfortunately, the Predators have been struggling offensively, only averaging 2.78 goals per game, while allowing an average of 3.00 goals per game.

The upcoming match between the Canucks and the Predators marks the second time these two teams will be facing each other. In their previous encounter, the Predators managed to clinch a victory.

How the game will play out

This is the kind of game where both teams can win so it´s very hard to predict this one, if I had to pick one, I think I would have to go with the Nashville Predators as they tend to surprise me a lot of times. 

My pick: The Nashville Predators puck line bet of +152 at (-1.5) Betsafe.
