Best matches of the week

 

Columbus Blue Jackets at Toronto Maple

Tip – Toronto have not been great at home to start the season, but they have won their last two games at Scotiabank Arena. They returned from their road trip to California after playing the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night and they should be adjusted to the time change by the time they take on the Blue Jackets. Auston Matthews looks close to a return but he will not be in the line-up on Monday night and neither will William Nylander who remains unsigned. Regardless, the home side should collect two points here.

Dallas Stars at New York Rangers

New York RangersNew York Rangers

 

Tip – The Dallas Stars will be playing their third game in four nights and the second half of a back-to-back when they take on the New York Rangers at the world’s most famous arena. They will have been in action the night before against the New York Islanders on Sunday and could be quite the tired side on Monday evening. Expect the Rangers to earn the win on home ice.  

 

Winnipeg Jets at Vancouver Canucks

Vancouver CanucksVancouver Canucks

 

Tip – The Winnipeg Jets have been much better at home than on the road, and the Canucks have been terrific at Rogers Arena this season. It may be worth looking at Vancouver to get the job done. The play in this one should be the over though, with the Canucks being one of the highest scoring teams in the NHL. Their defense has also looked shaky at times and the Jets have plenty of firepower. We could see a real high scoring affair on Monday night.

 

Florida Panthers at Tampa Bay Lightning

Amalie Arena

Tampa Bay LightningTampa Bay Lightning

 

Tip – While the Florida Panthers have been much better as of late, Amalie Arena remains one of the most difficult places for a road team to travel to. The Lightning have won seven of their first ten games there and do not show any signs of slowing down. Also, no team in the NHL has more goals scored after 19 games than Tampa Bay so the over may also be a worthwhile bet.

 

Boston Bruins at Detroit Red Wings

Detroit Red WingsDetroit Red Wings

 

Tip – The Detroit Red Wings have not been a very good hockey team this season and playing on home ice hasn’t helped much either, winning just five of their first 10 games at Little Caesar’s Arena. The Bruins on the other hand, are pushing for top spot in the Atlantic Division and have lost just four of their opening nine games on the road in regulation. The visitors should cruise to two points in Michigan on Wednesday night.

 

San Jose Sharks at Vegas Golden Knights

Vegas Golden KnightsVegas Golden Knights

 

Tip – The Sharks head to Vegas a night after taking on the Vancouver Canucks in San Jose. T-Mobile Arena has proven to be a fortress for the Golden Knights who had one of the best home records last season and have been impressive on home ice this year as well. They have lost just two of their opening eight games in their own building in regulation time and should get the job done against a Sharks side who will be playing in the second half of a back-to-back.
