NHL Betting News and Notes Friday 3/16

Friday's Best NHL Bets
By Covers.com

Montreal Canadiens at Ottawa Senators (-175, 5.5)

The Montreal Canadiens may not be heading to the playoffs, but they could have a big impact on where the Senators end up in the standings.

The two teams complete a home-and-home Friday night at Scotiabank Place after Montreal came away with a 3-2 shootout victory at the Bell Centre on Thursday.

David Desharnais scored his 16th goal of the season, recording his 11th point in the last eight games, and tallied again in the shootout to pace the Habs.

"For the most part, this team doesn't bring the best out in us, for some reason," Ottawa coach Paul MacLean told reporters. "We don't seem to be able to skate the way we've skated when we're successful. For whatever reason we don't skate very good against this team, and we have to find a solution to that. They play us real well."

Montreal has won four of its last five against Ottawa, which is battling Boston for the top spot in the Northeast. After Friday’s meeting, these two clubs will close out their season series in Montreal on Thursday.

Pick: Canadiens

Chicago Blackhawks at Dallas Stars (-130, 5.5)

After taking a 5-2 beating from the Winnipeg Jets on Wednesday night, Dallas Stars head coach Glen Gulutzan wasn’t exactly surprised at his team’s shoddy effort.

The Stars were riding a 10-0-1 streak heading into that game and with teams battling for playoff position, they were bound to have an off game sooner or later.

"Usually these things come down with a thud,” Gulutzan told reporters. “They don't usually go down in a shootout, last minute or a 2-1. They usually come down pretty hard, take the wind out of you a little bit and maybe wake you up.”

The Stars gave starting goaltender Kari Lehtonen a night off and with Richard Bachman in the cage, found themselves down 5-0 in the second period before they finally woke up.

You can bet Lehtonen will be back in goal Friday. He is coming off back-to-back shutouts and should be able to get the Stars back on track against the Blackhawks.

Dallas is 5-1 in its last six meetings with Chicago.

Pick: Stars
