The National Hockey League has six games on tap for Saturday night, with none being more tantalizing than the Minnesota Wild traveling to Nashville to take on the Predators for the second straight night. The Wild won in St. Paul on Friday, 4-2. The New Jersey Devils and Washington Capitals contest has all kinds of playoff implications for both teams.

ATS TRENDS

  • Boston (-155) vs. Ottawa (+135), O/U 5.5

The Bruins enter this game 5-1 against the spread in their last six games, and they have gone 6-2 against the spread in their last eight contests on the road. Ottawa is 5-2 in their last seven ATS, but they have gone only 2-6 in their last eight games at home against the spread. Look for Boston to put a little damper on the campaign of the Senators.

  • Minnesota (+125) vs. Nashville (-145), O/U 5.5

A night after the Minnesota Wild defeated the Nashville Predators, 4-2, these two teams will be added again but this time in Tennessee. Minnesota covered the spread the night before, winning by two goals, but that is no surprise as the Wild enter this contest 5-2 against the spread when playing Nashville. However, they are only 6-14 overall against the spread in their last 20 contests. Meanwhile, Nashville has gone 5-3 against the spread in their last eight. Take Minnesota to buck the system once again, and go wild against Nashville.

  • Montreal (+105) vs. Florida (-125), O/U 5.5

Montreal is struggling against the spread of late, going 2-8 in their last 10. They have also gone just 2-4 in their last six road contests ATS. Florida is not doing much better, going 1-4 in their last five games against the spread, and are also 1-4 in their last five games against Montréal against the spread. Look for the Canadians to be flying high as they declaw the Panthers.

  • New Jersey (+165) vs. Washington (-190), O/U 5.5

An interesting contest with all kinds of playoff implications will take place when the New Jersey Devils traveled to take on the Washington Capitals. These two teams are separated by just one point, so this contest is likely to have a playoff atmosphere, especially considering how well New Jersey has played on the road and Washington at home. The Devils are 6-1 against the spread over their last seven games. Washington is only 2-4 in their last six games ATS. Look for the Devils to put a curse on the nation’s capital.

O/U TRENDS

  • Carolina vs. St. Louis

Carolina is finding it hard to score of late, going under in six of their last nine contests. St. Louis has gone under in each of their last five games, so look for this to be a low-scoring affair.

  • Montreal (+105) vs. Florida (-125), O/U 5.5

The Canadiens have gone under in six of their last seven games. They have also gone under in five of their last six games on the road. Florida has gone under in six of their last eight games. This contest has the earmarks of a low-scoring affair as well, so take the under in South Florida.

  • Minnesota vs. Nashville

The total has now gone over in five of the last seven games between these two teams. Nashville has gone under in four of their last seven contests. Stay with what works, is to Predators and Wild figure out ways to continue to score.

  • New Jersey vs. Washington

New Jersey has gone over in six of their last nine games. Washington has gone under in four of their last six, making this an interesting paradox. Because it is in Washington where both teams seem to have a strength, as New Jersey is red-hot on the road and the Capitals are hot at home go with the over.

SU TRENDS

  • New Jersey vs. Washington

Washington is 11-1 straight up in their last 12 games against New Jersey. They have also gone 4-1 in their last five contests at home straight up against the Devils. Over the last 17 games, the Capitals are 12-5 straight up. New Jersey has gone 5-0 in their last five games SU. Something has to give in this contest and it will be that Washington wins.

  • Boston (-155) vs. Ottawa (+135), O/U 5.5

Boston has been red-hot on the road of late, going 6-2 in their last eight contests. Ottawa is only 3-16 in their last 19 games straight up, and have gone 2-4 SU in their last six games at home. Boston looks to dominate their Canadian rival in this one.
