NorthStar Bets NHL Schedule Preview: Week of November 20-26

Welcome to another week of National Hockey League action! Every Monday, Canada Sports Betting will be providing a breakdown of the NHL schedule, in collaboration with our friends at Northstar Bets. This breakdown includes a look at rest days, a massive difference-maker when it comes to betting implications, that you won’t find anywhere else! Figure out who has a mismatch, who is going to be tired, and who might be too rested and out of sync with our day-by-day dissections! Without further ado, here’s a look at this week’s schedule.

Rest Notes: There are seven games on tap today, with a couple really fun matchups. I’ve got my eyes on Oilers/Panthers and Sharks/Canucks tonight. As our own Andy MacNeil noted on today’s edition of The Puck Portfolio, there’s a big rest mismatch between San Jose and Vancouver, and two teams that started ice-cold and red-hot are starting to move a little closer to the middle. Vancouver are still heavy favourites, but it’s hard not to wonder about an upset here.

Rest Notes: The people getting the most rest on Tuesday will be us. There’s no NHL action on Tuesday! Catch a breather, maybe check in with the Raptors as they take on the Pacers (and check in with us as we offer our usual pre-game coverage!).

Watch and listen to The Puck Portfolio

The weekly schedule and accompanying rest info are best paired with the insights provided by Andy MacNeil on Canada Sports Betting’s NHL show, The Puck Portfolio, presented by NorthStar Bets!

Rest Notes: It’s a heavy night on the schedule, with just four teams out ofaction. The only significant mismatch here by rest involves the Hurricanes being up two days on the Oilers, which should perk the favourite even further ahead.

Rest Notes: Once again, we don’t have any action on Thursday, this time for American Thanksgiving. Hey, that sounds like a great time to check in with our NFL coverage, as we’ll break down the three games going on that day early on Thursday morning!

Rest Notes: If you thought Wednesday was packed, Friday steps it up even further, getting one step away from Frozen Frenzy. Why the league is going for a front to back schedule on Black Friday, a day that’s technically not a Holiday, I’m not really sure. But hey, it’s a lot of hockey! Toronto, Ottawa, and Minnesota, who were three of last week’s Global Series teams, get schedule mismatches here as a rest reward for their time in Sweden, while the Kings get two extra days over the Ducks.

Rest Notes: You get a back to back! You get a back to back! Everyone gets a back to back! Yes, this is what happens when almost everyone plays on the Friday. There’s not going to be a lot of rest going on here, and the two exceptions are equally matched against each other.
