Washington Capitals at Toronto Maple Leafs (-135, 5.5)

Back in September, both teams had visions of fighting for playoff positioning at the top of the Eastern Conference ladder. As it stands, they’re at the bottom and clinging to life. But there is a chance for both and, with the No. 8 seed out there for likely either these two teams, this contest becomes all that more important.

February follies

It's been a streaky month for the Maple Leafs. They won three in a row to start February, then followed that with four consecutive losses. And ever since a 4-3 win over Edmonton on Feb. 15, they've been stuck in another downturn.

On Thursday night, Jake Gardiner scored his fourth goal and James Reimer made 23 saves, but Toronto still fell to San Jose 2-1 for a third consecutive loss. In that run, which included a 4-3 overtime defeat at the hands of the New Jersey Devils Tuesday, the Maple Leafs have allowed 12 goals.

Not the best news for a team that would barely qualify for the postseason if the season ended Thursday. And the schedule doesn't get much easier. After this date with the Capitals, they'll play Florida and Chicago in a span of 24 hours on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Not-so-great Eight

The No. 8 is the key Saturday night. Not only are both teams fighting for the eighth seed in the East, all eyes - whether he plays or not - seem to be on Washington's "Great Eight," Alexander Ovechkin.

Ovechkin missed Wednesday's 5-2 road loss to the Senators with a lower body injury, and headed into Friday's date with the Canadiens deemed "day to day" by the management. Coach Dale Hunter has to be at wit's end with Ovechkin, even if he was 100 percent. Ovechkin, before Friday, had only 45 points and was a minus-9.

The Capitals are one of those teams that are in a tough spot over the next 72 hours or so. They're in contention and can mortgage the future by trying a trade before the deadline, and see if that gets them motivated. Or, they can stick it out, hold onto their youth and upside - which they have plenty - and see if Ovechkin can wake up on his own.

Mike among the missing

The puzzling tale of Toronto defenseman Mike Komisarek continues in what's become a lost season for him. Once a promising prospect and a 2001 first-round pick of Montreal, Komisarek has fallen on tough times in Toronto.

Thursday's loss to San Jose marked the ninth time in the past 11 games that Komisarek was a healthy scratch. He's played in just 29 games this year and has one goal, four points and is a minus-2.

Komisarek has shown some grit and fight when given the chance. He has 30 minutes in penalties, in fact. But his liabilities are showing in the Toronto zone. He's played in two games in February and was a minus player in both. And he hasn't had a shot on goal since Jan. 31.

History

Washington has won three of the last four in the series, including a 4-2 victory at home on Dec. 9. The last installment at Air Canada Centre, was a 7-1 Maple Leafs’ win on Nov. 19. The over has hit in six of the last eight meetings between these two, and Toronto is 4-1 over in its last five games.



Philadelphia Flyers at Calgary Flames (+109, 5.5)

Trying to find their way on a trip through Western Canada, the fleeting Flyers make a stop in Calgary. February hasn’t been kind to Philadelphia and, though making the Eastern Conference playoffs shouldn’t be a problem, much more than a mid-level seed was expected from this group, especially after an offseason shakeup.

Shooting blanks

We’ll see what kind of fire Flyers coach Peter Laviolette has in his belly Saturday and how it translates to his team after a disheartening 2-0 loss to the Oilers in Edmonton Thursday. Philadelphia tried everything: Different line combinations, a pulled goalie with three minutes left in regulation - you name it. Nothing worked.

Hopefully, for Flyers fans, maybe it’s just an Edmonton thing. After all, Philadelphia hasn’t scored a goal in Edmonton since Oct. 6, 2007. Thursday’s loss, in fact, was the third time in the last seven games between the clubs that the Flyers were shut out. That’s a run that dates back to 2004.

What goes beyond Edmonton, though, is the fact that the Flyers have lost four of the last six games and have only four wins in February.

A bump in the road

Calgary forward Jarome Iginla calls it a “speed bump,” a rut that the Flames have hit and one that’s proving costly in their fight for the final postseason berth in the Western Conference.

Calgary is still hanging tough and is scratching out points where it can, but you have to protect leads at this time of year and maximize every opportunity. The Flames did neither on Thursday.

Phoenix forward Ray Whitney scored in a shootout and the Coyotes rallied from two goals down to defeat Iginla and Co. 4-3. It was Calgary's third loss in the last four games.

Perhaps a quick homestand will ignite the Flames at this critical juncture. But it won’t be easy. After the Flyers, they will play host to the resurgent Blues Monday.

Wayne’s world

Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren rolled the dice this summer, dealing away high-priced, high-scoring forwards Jeff Carter and Mike Richards. However, the player who often gets lost in the deal is Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds.

A piece to the package that was received from the Kings in exchange for Richards in June, Simmonds has been a true, two-way force for Philadelphia. He has 22 goals, 39 points and is not afraid of the tough, Eastern Conference battles with Philadelphia's many rivals. In fact, he has 75 penalty minutes headed into Saturday.

Simmonds has four goals in his last four games and has nine tallies in February overall.

History

This is a rare matchup, with the last four meetings dating back to 2007. The teams have split those 2-2, with the underdog winning each time. Four of the last five installments have gone under, but Philadelphia has gone over in four of its last five games.

Ice picks: Saturday's best NHL bets
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tampa Bay Lighting at Pittsburgh Penguins (-225, 5.5)

The Tampa Bay Lightning’s Steven Stamkos and Evgeni Malkin of the Pittsburgh Penguins come into their final meeting this season tied for the league lead with 73 points.

Stamkos has six goals in his last four games as he tries to keep the Lightning in the playoff chase. Malkin has six goals and eight assists in nine contests with Pittsburgh in a four-way battle for fourth place in the Eastern Conference.

Stamkos has 43 goals to lead Malkin by 10 for the Rocket Richard Trophy.

The over has paid out in five of their last nine meetings, with two of those contests finishing in a push.

Pick: Over


Philadelphia Flyers at Calgary Flames (+109, 5.5)

The Philadelphia Flyers were simply grounded by the Edmonton Oilers in their last game. Coach Peter Laviolette's club will look to rebound on Saturday when it visits Alberta's other NHL representative - the Calgary Flames.

Calgary has secured at least one point in nine of its last 10 games - although it has dropped the first two contests of its four-game homestand.

Laviolette summed it up best after Philadelphia was blanked by Edmonton. "You’d like to think this serves as a wake-up call because we’re in a playoff race," he said after watching his team fall to 3-6-1 in its last 10 games. "(This) is unacceptable."

Ilya Bryzgalov played well in the 2-0 loss, stopping 28 shots after yielding seven goals in his previous two starts. While a member of the Phoenix Coyotes, the Russian has won his last six starts versus the Flames.

Pick: Philadelphia
