Will Senators Halt Slide Against The Rangers?
The Senators surprised the NHL by nearly making a run to the Stanley Cup finals during the 2017 playoffs, but their most recent shock was a 3-2 loss against the Arizona Coyotes at home. Ottawa’s in a mini tailspin, losing two consecutive home games and winning four of their last ten.
24 hours after this disappointing result, the Sens travel to the Big Apple to take on the Rangers. New York’s also in a mini-slide, but they’ve turned their fortunes around with a 7-3-0 record over their past ten, climbing back into contention in an extremely tight Metropolitan Division.

NHL Lines: Lighting The Lamp
Senators at Rangers (New York SU -165)
Ottawa’s playing their last of three games in four days, which started with a narrow victory over the Avalanche. Losing to the Penguins is understandable, but a 3-2 defeat against the NHL-worst Coyotes should raise a few alarms. The last time the Senators faced the Rangers, they trounced New York from the post season. These teams have split their last ten regular season meetings, but the Rangers enter with the home and rest advantage, while Ottawa plays their second of a back-to-back. Expect the Rangers to capitalize.
Islanders at Hurricanes (New York SU +110)
The last ten meetings have been exceptionally close between these two squads, with both sides winning five and half of the matchups ending in overtime or a shootout. New York’s won three of these one-goal games, but more importantly, the Islanders have a three-game win streak against Carolina heading into tonight and beat the league-leading Lightning in Tampa last night. The Isles will be considered underdogs because they’re on the road, but New York’s performance against the Lightning should be respected by NHL fans this evening.
Avalanche at Red Wings (Detroit SU -190)
Detroit showed their readiness for fisticuffs against the Flames, but their rivalry against the Avalanche has diminished since the Red Wings relocated to the eastern conference. Against Colorado, Detroit has a healthy 6-1-3 record over their last ten. The Wings have risen in the Atlantic Division over the past few weeks, earning a 6-3-1 record along with two wins in a row. Colorado’s rightfully considered the biggest underdog of all the matches on Sunday.
Panthers at Ducks (Florida SU +115)
The Anaheim Ducks haven’t been mighty because of their recent injury woes. Most teams would sink without their top two centers and number one defenseman, but the Ducks welcome the Panthers to the pond with a respectable 8-7-3 record, good enough to stay in the hunt for the playoffs. Florida has Anaheim’s number as of late, winning three in a row against the Ducks, and six of the last ten meetings. The Panthers are the odds underdog, but they’ll have the inside edge today.
Kings at Golden Knights (Vegas SU -110)
The Kings visit the Golden Knights for an inaugural matchup, with Los Angeles considered the slight favorites. Los Angeles hasn’t played well as of late, snapping a four-game home losing streak against Florida before flying to Vegas. Similar to the Kings, the Knights have a 4-5-1 record over their last ten, but home advantage has proven powerful for Vegas in their first season, losing once in eight games. Bet on the Golden Knights extending their excellent play at home.
Dirty Dangle Of The Night – High Risk/Reward
Detroit Red Wings Beat Puckline Against Colorado Avalanche (-1.5, +160)
Despite Detroit’s improved play this season and Colorado’s relatively middling hockey, this puckline carries a bit of extra risk because of historical trends. Specifically, Detroit’s won by two or more goals only once in their last six home games against Colorado.
Nonetheless, the Red Wings have won by two or more goals in their last two home games. This includes an outstanding 8-2 victory over Calgary where the team pulled together to defend against the Flames thuggery. A third consecutive victory by two or more is well within reach.
