Tampa Bay Lightning (-170) vs. New Jersey Devils (+140)

Devils

It’s crunch time for the New Jersey Devils, who have 8 games remaining in their regular season schedule with a difficult matchup against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday night. The Devils, who hold the second wild-card position in the East, head into the home game as enticing +140 underdogs. It’s another must-win for the Devils, who also give up 2 games in hand to the Florida Panthers — the team chasing them for a playoff berth. Tampa Bay is riding a three-game winning streak and heads to New Jersey as the -170 road favourites. The Bolts are also -1.5 favourites on the spread, but keep in mind the Eastern Conference leaders have gone 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games. Take the Devils to win and cover on Saturday.

Pick: New Jersey Devils (+140, +1.5)

Columbus Blue Jackets (-150) vs. St. Louis Blues (+120)

Jackets

Two of the hottest teams in the NHL will clash on Saturday night when the Columbus Blue Jackets — winners of 10 straight games — host the St. Louis Blues. The Blue Jackets sit comfortably in third in the Metropolitan Division and head into their home contest as the -150 favourites. The Blue Jackets are 25-11-2 at Nationwide Arena this season as the club searches for its 11th consecutive victory. The Blues, who are also riding a 4-game winning streak, are intriguing +120 underdogs on the road, where the club has posted a 18-13-5 record this season. The Jackets are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games so look for the club to cover -1.5 line as well.

Pick: Columbus Blue Jackets (-150)

Toronto Maple Leafs (-260) vs. Detroit Red Wings (+220)

Leafs

Auston Matthews returned to the Toronto Maple Leafs lineup as the club is coming off arguably its two most impressive games of the regular season. With the playoffs looming, the Leafs will look for another 2 points on Saturday when they host the Detroit Red Wings in an Original Six clash. Toronto boasts a remarkable 25-8-2 record at the Air Canada Centre this season, which is why the Leafs head into Saturday’s match as the overwhelming -260 favourites against the Red Wings. It’s been a frustrating season for Detroit, which has dropped 8 of its last 10 games heading into action on Saturday. The Leafs, who are -1.5 favourites on the spread, are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games.

Pick: Toronto Maple Leafs (-260)

Nashville Predators (-115) vs. Minnesota Wild (-105)

Wild

The Minnesota Wild are battling for their playoff lives heading into a critical match against the league’s best team — the Nashville Predators. The Wild are sitting third in the Central Division but are only 2 points ahead of the St. louis Blues in the race for the post-season. The Preds — having already locked up a playoff berth — go into Minnesota as the -115 favourites. Nashville has one 8 of its last 10 games and are 23-7-6 on the road this season. However, expect a little more desperation in the Wild, which has posted an incredible 24-6-7 record on home ice. In fact, the Wild are 4-1 straight up in their last 5 games when playing the Predators at home.

Pick: Minnesota Wild (-105)
