NHL Betting News and Notes Thursday 3/22

Thursday’s Best NHL Bets
By Covers.com

Washington Capitals at Philadelphia Flyers (-160, 5.5)

The Capitals may have nine regular season games left on the schedule, but they all know they’re playing playoff hockey right now.

Washington, which went into Wednesday night’s action holding down the eighth and final playoff spot in the East, has won six of its last eight. Alex Ovechkin paced the attack Monday with his 31st and 32nd goals of the season to help Washington to a 5-3 victory over the Red Wings.

Ovie hasn’t been the only one rising to the occasion, either.

"We're really trying to play playoff hockey right now," Capitals coach Dale Hunter told reporters. "We're battling for our life to get in. You see us sliding all over the place trying to block shots. We're a desperate team to try to get points."

If the Caps are going to sneak into the postseason, they’ll need wins over teams like the Flyers. We’ll see if they have what it takes.

Pick: Capitals

Edmonton Oilers at Tampa Bay Lightning (-125, 5.5)

Edmonton Oilers head coach Tom Renney normally stays on a pretty even keel. He knows his young team was in for some ups and downs this season and coached the squad accordingly.

However, when they dropped a 3-2 decision at San Jose earlier this month, he let the Oilers have it, criticizing their effort and competitiveness. His words didn’t fall on deaf ears. Edmonton won 6-3 at Nashville Tuesday while outshooting the Preds 44-20 to pick up their seventh point in four games since Renney blew his top.

"You don't want that losing mentality,” Jordan Eberle told reporters. “You don't want that losing way to creep into your locker room, where you think that losing is acceptable, because it's not. We want to win hockey games and we want to do well."

Meanwhile, the Lightning have dropped six of their last seven.

Pick: Oilers
