Phoenix Coyotes at San Jose Sharks

San Jose was on some kind of mission opening the campaign winning seven straight behind Patrick Marleau's 9 goals, 5 assists and Joe Thornton's 3 tallies, 11 helpers. But, the two recording zero points the past three the Sharks have dropped three in-a-row including the most recent 5-3 loss to Chicago. Still, San Jose and their two top point getter's will rise to the occasion in the Shark Tank Saturday afternoon. Marleau and Thornton have already notched three goals vs Coyotes this season and netminder Antti Niemi is 5-0 at home vs Desert Dogs. Expect Sharks to improve they're sparkling 8-1 stretch hosting Coyotes.

Tampa Bay Lightning at Boston Bruins

Bolts are off to a decent 6-4-0-0 start on a league best 4.1 goals/game but they've benefited from a home-heavy schedule. Bolts dropping the first two contests of this four-game road swing moving to 1-3 on foreign ice now head to Boston to take on Northeast Division leading Bruins sitting at 7-1-1-0. Tough road ahead, Bolts losing both meetings in Boston last season are on a 4-19-3 skid last twenty-six trips into Bean-Town. Bolts are also ridding a 1-11 road skid vs. teams with a .600 or greater home winning percentage.

Preview:
The Pittsburgh Penguins and New Jersey Devils are looking like two of the top contenders to come out of the Eastern Conference.

The Penguins hope their offense - one of the league's best - will come through again Saturday as they visit the Devils and their stifling defense.

Pittsburgh's 3.5 goals per game and New Jersey's 2.1 goals-against average are both among the top marks in the NHL. It was the Penguins breaking through the Devils' defense for a 5-1 home victory last Saturday, the second win on the team's five-game run.

After a 3-3-0 start, Pittsburgh (8-3-0) is resembling the squad that boasted last season's top scoring offense. During their winning streak, the Penguins are putting 16.6 percent of their shots in the back of the net, averaging 4.6 goals. They scored 2.7 goals per game over their first six contests.

Sidney Crosby tallied three points while leading Pittsburgh to a five-goal second period in a 5-2 home win over Washington on Thursday. Crosby, whose 12 assists are tied for second in the NHL, had a goal and two assists to increase his point streak to six games.

An improved power play, with adjustments from coach Dan Bylsma, has helped fuel the Penguins' streak. After scoring on 22.7 percent of their advantages through their first six games, they're 7 of 19 (36.8 percent) on power plays over the last five. Bylsma shifted forward James Neal to play closer to the net while giving Crosby more freedom to operate.

Pittsburgh scored on three of four power plays against Washington, its third straight game with at least one power-play goal.

The Penguins, however, went 0 for 3 with the man advantage against New Jersey last week.

Crosby had a goal and an assist in that one giving him three goals and seven assists in his last four games versus the Devils.

New Jersey (6-1-3) has since bounced back from last Saturday's defeat - its most lopsided loss of the season - outscoring opponents 10-3 during a three-game winning streak.

The Devils are giving up 22.0 shots per game during their run after yielding 4.0 goals per game on 31.3 shots during an 0-1-3 stretch. The Penguins had 30 shots.

The Devils held Tampa Bay - which came in scoring on 32.5 percent of its power-play opportunities - scoreless on four chances with the extra skater in a 4-2 home victory Thursday. New Jersey has killed all 19 penalties in its last four games.

An appearance on Saturday would mark goaltender Martin Brodeur's 1,200th career game. The four-time Vezina Trophy winner, who is 5-1-2 with a 2.44 goals-against average this season, stopped 25 shots against the Penguins last weekend dropping to 0-3-0 with a 4.70 GAA in the last three in the series.

Penguins All-Star defenseman Kris Letang was a late scratch against the Capitals due to a lower-body injury. Letang has recorded nine points - including a goal versus New Jersey - in 10 games.

Maple Leafs at Canadiens: What Bettors Need to Know
Covers.com

Toronto Maple Leafs at Montreal Canadiens (-155, 5)

Phil Kessel can head to Montreal to face the Canadiens with some confidence on Saturday after the Toronto Maple Leafs' forward finally scored his first goal of the season. Kessel scored the winning goal against Winnipeg on Thursday to give the Maple Leafs their second consecutive win and third straight on the road, where Toronto is 5-1-0 this season. The Maple Leafs started their season with a 2-1 win in Montreal, but the Canadiens recovered from that loss to win six of their next seven games. Montreal is winless in its last two.

Canadiens goaltender Carey Price is 6-2-0 in eight starts with a 1.74 goals-against average and a .936 save percentage. Price has allowed two goals in each of his losses, while backup Peter Budaj is 0-1-1 in his two starts and has yielded nine goals. Toronto goaltender James Reimer has started six of the last seven games, winning the starting job over Ben Scrivens, who stopped 21 shots in the season-opening win in Montreal. The Canadiens are 2-1-1 with defenseman P.K. Subban in the lineup. Subban has a point in each of his first four games this season.

ABOUT THE MAPLE LEAFS (6-5-0, 4-7 over/under): Kessel has a team-high 46 shots on goal. James van Riemsdyk and Matt Frattin are tied for the club lead with six goals apiece, while Nazem Kadri leads the team with nine points. Rookie defenseman Mike Kostka has one assist in his last eight games after notching a helper in each of his first three NHL games. Cody Franson leads all Maple Leafs defensemen with five points, while captain Dion Phaneuf has 26 hits and 19 blocked shots.

ABOUT THE CANADIENS (6-3-1, 5-5 over/under): Tomas Plekanec scored twice on Thursday and leads the team with six goals. Defenseman Andrei Markov is tied with Plekanec for the team lead with 10 points. All of Markov’s points have come on the power play, where Montreal is 13-for-55. Defenseman Raphael Diaz has nine assists on the season, but only one in his last four games. Defenseman Josh Gorges has blocked 29 shots, 11 more than anyone else on the team. Max Pacioretty has six assists in as many games but no goals on 16 shots.

Re: NHL Betting News and Notes Saturday, February 9

NHL Odds and Betting Guide-
By: The Linemakers
Sportingnews.com

A heavy slate of NHL games Saturday is headlined by a battle in the Western Conference, as the Ducks will look to bounce back from a loss last night as they travel to St. Louis to face the Blues. Goalies will be of interest in this one as nominal Ducks No.1 Jonas Hiller was injured last night, which could give Anaheim even more reason to turn to the red-hot rookie Viktor Fasth. The Blues are without their top goalie, Jaroslav Halak, and backup Brian Elliott has struggled as of late. Despite that, the Blues are the favorite tonight, with a money line of -170.

The NHL's day will open at 1 PM Eastern with a matchup between the top two teams in the Atlantic Division, the Pittsburgh Penguins and New Jersey Devils. The Devils have won three straight and are the host for this one. However, Vegas oddsmakers have made the Penguins, winners of five straight, the road favorite. The Penguins crushed the Devils 5-1 when the teams met last week.

There are 12 games on the schedule Saturday across the league. So far, outside of the Lightning at Bruins start time being pushed back to 7 PM ET, no major changes have been made to the schedule as a result of the blizzard in the Northeast.

The lines are from LVH as of about 6:45 a.m. P.T.

*Denotes goalie start is not confirmed. Goalie starts can be subject to change.

Italics indicate team is on the second night of a back-to-back.
