NHL Saturday Betting Preview: Rangers Making Big Push100% Bonus up to $2,500 on your first Crypto deposit.
New York Chasing Metro CrownThe New York Rangers weren’t exactly the odds-on pick to win the Metropolitan Division but thanks to tons of timely scoring and Vezina-caliber play from Igor Shesterkin, New York is tied with the Carolina Hurricanes for first place in the division with just four games left.
That makes the Rangers’ Saturday meeting with the Bruins a critical one and it’s important for Boston too, as the Bruins try to stay ahead of the Washington Capitals for the first Wild-Card spot and try to gain ground on the Tampa Bay Lightning for third place in the Atlantic.
Rangers-Bruins is one of 12 games on Saturday’s schedule. Let’s run through each game with an eye to what the NHL betting lines say:
Carolina Hurricanes vs New Jersey DevilsThe Carolina Hurricanes need all the points they can get as they try to hold off the New York Rangers. So, Carolina needs to beat the lowly New Jersey Devils, losers of 3 of 4 and 8 of 11. The Devils have also dropped five in a row at home.
Carolina has won its last two games and is a big road favorite. With New Jersey’s injuries and shaky goaltending, go with the Hurricanes to win easily on the puckline.
New York Islanders vs Buffalo SabresAll the New York Islanders and Buffalo Sabres have left to play for is pride, which makes Saturday’s contest a tough one to handicap. But, based on recent results, the Sabres might have the edge. Buffalo has won three straight while New York has lost three straight.
Interestingly, the Islanders are still favored on the road. They’re a better team than the Sabres and Ilya Sorokin is a top-flight netminder. Sorokin should get the start and, if he does, you should take New York to win in regulation. However, if he doesn’t, go with Buffalo on the moneyline.
Pittsburgh Penguins vs Detroit Red WingsThe Pittsburgh Penguins are locked in a virtual tie with the Washington Capitals for third place in the Metro, which could have big playoff implications. If the Penguins stay in third, they’ll be matched up with either the Carolina Hurricanes or New York Rangers in the first round. But, if they slip into the Wild-Card picture, they might draw the Florida Panthers.
So, Pittsburgh needs to beat up on the Detroit Red Wings, who have lost three of four and have just four wins since late March. The Penguins haven’t been great as of late but they’re still really talented and have so many experienced veterans.
Pittsburgh is a huge favorite and is a great pick to cover the puckline. The over is also a good play.
New York Rangers vs Boston BruinsThe New York Rangers have won four straight as they try to keep pace with the Carolina Hurricanes in the tight race for the No. 1 spot in the Metropolitan. New York is coming off a thorough 6-3 beatdown of the rival New York Islanders in which Andrew Copp had a first period hat trick.
They’ll play the Boston Bruins, who have basically been a .500 team in April and were shut out by the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday. Boston is a solid home favorite, though, with Vegas expecting a bounceback performance. Despite the Rangers’ hot streak, go with the Bruins straight-up and also think about parlaying it with the under.
Montreal Canadiens vs Ottawa SenatorsThe last few weeks have been ugly for the Montreal Canadiens, who are on a seven-game skid. Carey Price, who made his season debut a week ago, is still looking for his first win. He could get the start as Montreal welcomes the rival Ottawa Senators, who have won back-to-back games and have been much more competitive recently.
Ottawa is a comfortable home favorite. However, that line seems to be a little generous to a bad team like the Senators who played last night in Columbus. Take Montreal on a rest advantage as the underdogs on the BetUS sportsbook.
Nashville Predators vs Tampa Bay LightningBoth the Nashville Predators and Tampa Bay Lightning have a lot of work left in the regular season. Nashville is currently the top Wild-Card team in the West but has to stay ahead of the Dallas Stars (and Vegas Golden Knights) in order to make the postseason and avoid the Colorado Avalanche if it qualifies.
Tampa Bay has three points on the Boston Bruins in the race to third place in the Atlantic. The Lightning, like the Predators, have been a little underwhelming in April and need to clean things up before the playoffs start.
But, the Lightning have won three of four — including an impressive 8-1 thrashing of the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday — so they’re decent-sized favorites at home. Go with Tampa Bay to win in regulation and consider the over too.
Toronto Maple Leafs vs Florida PanthersThere isn’t much left to prove for either the Toronto Maple Leafs or Florida Panthers, arguably the best teams in the Eastern Conference. Toronto is slotted in as the No. 2 seed from the Atlantic while Florida has clinched the best record in the East.
Both teams are playing well too, with the Maple Leafs having won four of five and the Panthers on a 12-game winning streak. Since neither needs to go all out in this one, though, it’s a good spot to just go with the value. With Toronto as an underdog, the Maple Leafs are the team to side with here.
Seattle Kraken vs Dallas StarsThe Dallas Stars control their playoff future but it’s still precarious. They’re two points ahead of the Vegas Golden Knights and, with both teams having played 78 games entering Saturday, any slip-up by the Stars can be fatal to their postseason chances.
Dallas needs to get two points against the Seattle Kraken, who have won three of four but are still a pretty depleted team that is toward the bottom of the league standings.
The Stars are huge favorites at home and, if you’re betting online, you should wager on them to win big in such a crucial game.
Chicago Blackhawks vs San Jose SharksThere admittedly isn’t much juice for Chicago Blackhawks-San Jose Sharks, yet with each team struggling, they’ll be hungry to get off the schneid. Chicago has lost 11 of 13 and San Jose has dropped 11 of 12 after recently snapping a 10-game skid.
The Sharks are favored at home but this is the perfect non-contender vs. non-contender game in which the true spread should be more like a pick’em. Take the Blackhawks straight-up because San Jose shouldn’t be favored by that much against any team.
Vancouver Canucks vs Calgary FlamesThe Vancouver Canucks are basically in win-or-go-home mode as they currently sit four points behind the Dallas Stars for the final Western Conference playoff spot. Vancouver also would need to jump the Vegas Golden Knights, which makes things bleak for Bruce Boudreau’s squad.
It doesn’t help that Vancouver has lost back-to-back games. However, the Canucks might catch a break by facing the Calgary Flames, who have already clinched the Pacific and have nothing else to play for in the regular season. Calgary is still a sizable favorite but the Canucks are a smart pick because they have a ton of urgency to win.
St. Louis Blues vs Arizona CoyotesDespite going 12-0-2 in their last 14 games, the St. Louis Blues are two points behind the Minnesota Wild for second place in the Central Division which essentially determines who has home-ice advantage in the Blues-Wild first-round matchup. The Blues still can unseat the Wild, though, and should be able to easily dispatch the Arizona Coyotes.
Arizona has lost nine consecutive games and 16 of 18 overall. That kind of sums up how the Coyotes’ season has gone.
As you’d expect, the Blues are enormous road favorites and are a good bet to even win by three or more goals since there isn’t much value on the puckline.
Anaheim Ducks vs Los Angeles KingsDue to a well-timed three-game winning streak, the Los Angeles Kings have a somewhat-comfortable five-point edge on the idle Vegas Golden Knights for third place in the Pacific. If Los Angeles can beat the Anaheim Ducks, then they would make it harder for the Golden Knights to sneak into the postseason through the divisional route.
The Kings have done well to beat up on lesser competition lately and the Ducks fall into that category of opponent. Anaheim has lost four of five and looks like a team ready to wrap up another playoff-less season. Los Angeles is a comfortable home favorite and should cover the puckline. You could also take the Kings just to win in regulation and parlay that with the under.
Philadelphia Flyers vs Buffalo Sabres 1/9/2023 – The Philadelphia Flyers will be on the road to square off against the Buffalo Sabres from KeyBank Center in Buffalo, New York. The Flyers are sitting at the seventh spot in the Metropolitan Division and are coming into this game with a losing record. The Sabres are fourth in the Atlantic Division and are coming into this game riding a two-game winning streak. The Flyers have a long way to go and they must focus on making it to the top.

St Louis Blues vs Winnipeg Jets 10/24/2022 – On Monday, the NFL schedule will get underway between the St. Louis Blues and the Winnipeg Jets.
