Sunday's Best NHL Bets

New Jersey Devils at Pittsburgh Penguins (-187, 5.5)

It's safe to say the Penguins on fire. In fact, saying that would be an understatement.

They have taken points in 14 consecutive games and have won 13 of those contests. Sidney Crosby and company continued the hot streak on Thursday with a 5-1 blowout of Nashville.

The Pens are enjoying an absolute offensive eruption. They have scored 13 goals in their past two outings, as the win over Nashville was preceded by an 8-4 drubbing of Winnipeg. Pittsburgh has lit the lamp a ridiculous 30 times in its last six games.

Crosby has not scored since his return from concussion-like symptoms, but he is still an integral part of the offense. He has tallied nine assists in just five games since taking the ice on March 15. Crosby assisted on four scores in the rout of Winnipeg.

"It's much easier when the team is playing as well as we are," Crosby said of his return. "You always work hard and prepare, get ready to come back. There are still areas where I need to get sharper, but with everyone playing it makes it easier for anyone coming back."

Pick: Penguins

Nashville Predators at Chicago Blackhawks (-137, 5.5)

The trends do not look good for Nashville heading into a Sunday showdown against Chicago. The Predators have lost four of their last five overall and they have surrendered a whopping 11 goals in their last two. The Blackhawks are on a five-game winning streak and have scored 20 goals in those five.

Marian Hossa, who tallied his 900th career point in a Tuesday win over Columbus, has recorded at least one point in seven consecutive outings (two goals, eight assists).

''We're feeling good right now,'' said Duncan Keith, who has been suspended for the next five games stemming from a hit against Vancouver. ''The one thing we've learned is we're not going to take anything for granted. We're playing better but we know there's still more there that we have to get better at."

The Predators have won three in a row this season in the head-to-head series, but this one could go along the lines of the first of four previous matchups between the two teams. Chicago notched four goals in regulation then scored the game-winner in overtime for a 5-4 victory on October 31.

Pick: Blackhawks

Edmonton Oilers at Columbus Blue Jackets

The two worst teams in the Western Conference do battle in Columbus Sunday when Blue Jackets host Oilers. Nothing left to play for except pride must stick with hometown skaters in this one. It's not often that the Blue Jackets have a winning streak against any team but their success against Oilers is noteworthy. Blue Jackets have won five straight hosting Edmonton.

New York Islanders at Florida Panthers

Panthers dropping their last two on the ice have conditions on their side Sunday when the New York Islanders visit. Panthers catch an New York playing in back-2-back's a situation that has seen Islanders lose the last seven without rest. If that were not enough, Panthers have a 9-1 streak going at home vs Islanders.
