Best Matches of the Week

 

New Jersey Devils at Pittsburgh Penguins

Tip – While the Pittsburgh Penguins have been terrible at home this season, they will like their chances against a New Jersey Devils side who have looked shaky defensively to kick off the campaign. They let the Lightning put eight past them recently on the road and with Evgeni Malkin continuing to put up ridiculous numbers thus far, expect to see plenty of goals scored in this one.

Dallas Stars at Boston Bruins

Boston BruinsBoston Bruins

 

Tip – The Dallas Stars will be in the middle of a difficult road trip when they visit Boston to take on the Bruins in the first game of a back-to-back that will see them play the Columbus Blue Jackets the next night. The Stars have just 34 goals scored after their opening 11 games and will likely struggle to find the back of the net in this game as well. Unlike Dallas, Boston will be off until Thursday following this game and will be eager to pick up two crucial points against an inferior hockey club. 

 

Edmonton Oilers at Tampa Bay Lightning

Tampa Bay LightningTampa Bay Lightning

 

Tip – It’s never easy going into the Amalie Arena to play the Tampa Bay Lightning, it’s made even more difficult when your forced to play the defending Stanley Cup champions the night before. Edmonton take on the Capitals in Washington before flying to Florida to play the Lightning the next day. As a result, we will likely see an exhausted Edmonton side and backup goalie Mikko Koskinen in net.  

 

Nashville Predators at Colorado Avalanche

Colorado AvalancheColorado Avalanche

 

Tip – The Colorado Avalanche have been one of the biggest surprises of the season thus far, picking up an impressive 16 points from their opening 12 games. The only team who has been better than them in the Central Division are their visitors Wednesday evening – the Nashville Predators. Nashville have remained perfect on the road through their first five games away from Bridgestone Arena and will look to continue their recent domination over the Avalanche. The Predators won all four games played between these two teams in the regular season last year, before eliminating them in six games in the playoffs. Despite the home side’s strong start to the season, the visitors should pick up the win.

 

Calgary Flames at Anaheim Ducks

Anaheim DucksAnaheim Ducks

 

Tip – The Calgary Flames will be well rested when they visit Anaheim to take on the Ducks, having not been in action since Saturday. The Ducks on the other hand, will have played their state rivals the Los Angeles Kings the night before. Starting goalie John Gibson will likely be sitting out for this one, but the Ducks have plenty of experience with Ryan Miller as their backup. Regardless, it’s hard not to like the visitors to take maximum points.

 

New York Rangers at Detroit Red Wings

Little Caesars Arena

Detroit Red WingsDetroit Red Wings

 

Tip – The Detroit Red Wings began the season with seven consecutive losses and have already lost four games on home ice. But the New York Rangers have just one win on the road and could struggle against a Detroit side that may finally be starting to find it’s groove. With just nine points from their opening 12 games, the Rangers currently sit at the bottom of the Metropolitan Division and they could be stuck there all-season long. This could be one of those rare occasions where the Red Wings are worth putting money on.
