Tampa Bay Lightning vs Toronto Maple Leafs

First, the Lightning against the Maple Leafs is one of those games that is unmissable. Both teams are having a good season, and this is a very important game to help decide which team will go to the top of the Atlantic division. The Tampa Bay Lightning is coming into this game on a 5-game win streak. Being in third place in the Atlantic division with a record of 20-9, this will be the second time that these teams play against each other. In the first game, the Lightning won 4-3. Nikita Kucherov has been the best player on this team this season together with Auston Mattews. 

Regarding the Maple Leafs, they are also having a good season, as I previously stated, however, they are on a two-game losing streak, one against the Capitals and another against the Rangers. They are in second place with a record of 19-7.

How the game will play out

Since Toronto has home advantage, I think they will win this game. The Leafs are currently undefeated at home in four games in a row.

My pick: The Maple Leafs with a moneyline bet of -138 at PowerPlay Sports.

Ottawa Senators vs Winnipeg Jets

We all know that Ottawa Senators vs Winnipeg Jets is going to be an amazing game to watch. Both teams have a very similar style of playing. However, both these teams are having completely different seasons. The Senators are coming into this game after a loss against the Wild and they have been inconsistent throughout the whole season. Being in the 7th place in the Atlantic division with a record of 14-15 it’s safe to say this season has been a bit of a flop. Brady Tkachuk has been the best player on that team this season having the most goals and the most assists.

Regarding the Jets, they are having a very good season, in 2nd place in the Central division with a record of 20-10. They are also coming into this game after a loss against the Kraken, something that took me by surprise.

How the game will play out

It will be the very first time that they are going to play, nevertheless, I think I would have to go with the Jets. Not only they are playing better as they are also playing in their hometown, so I think this can be greatly advantageous. 

My pick: The Winnipeg Jets puck line of +151 at BetOBet.

Calgary Flames vs San Jose Sharks

And finally, the Sharks against the Flames will be also an intriguing game to watch. The Flames are in 5th place in the Pacific division with a record of 14-12 and the Sharks are in 7th with a record of 10-17. The Flames are better than the Sharks right now, but I have to say that I was expecting more from them before the start of the season.

If you watched the last game between these two, you saw that the Flames controlled the entire game without allowing any space for the Sharks to create any dangerous plays. The Sharks on the other hand made so many basic mistakes that cost them the game. The first goal was an example of that. Elias Lindholm was without a doubt the man of the match.

How the game will play out

There are a lot of things that we should keep in mind for this game. First, this game will be played once again in the Shark’s hometown, so it´s going to be very interesting to see how they will react. The Flames are very confident right now and they will do everything to win this game so they can go up in their division. However, the Flames completely dominated the Sharks last time out and I can’t see this game playing out any other way. The Flames should win the game and cover the spread.

My pick: The Calgary Flames puck line bet of +128 at Betsafe.
