Sunday's NHL Betting Notes
By Covers.com

Check out our betting notes for all nine games on the NHL sked Sunday:

Chicago Blackhawks at Detroit Red Wings (-106, 5.5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Corey Crawford (CHI), Jimmy Howard (DET)

Chicago has secured at least a point in all 21 contests this season and 27 straight dating back to March 25, 2012. The Blackhawks extended their winning streak to eight games with victories over St. Louis and Columbus. Chicago will face yet another Central Division rival in the form of Detroit, which pushed the Blackhawks past regulation before succumbing to a 2-1 overtime loss on Jan. 27. The Red Wings, who have dropped three straight to Chicago, posted their third win in four games with a 2-1 shootout triumph over San Jose on Thursday. The under is 7-1 in the Blackhawks’ last eight vs. Central foes.

Ottawa Senators at New York Islanders (-138, 5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Robin Lehner (OTT), Evgeni Nabokov (NYI)

The Ottawa Senators have followed a five-game winning streak by going winless in the first two contests of their current five-game road trip. Ottawa has struggled on the road all season, recording just three wins in its first 10 games away from Scotiabank Place. New York is three contests into a season-long seven-game homestand - and is 0-2-1 in that span. The Islanders, who won a total of four games in February, lost 3-1 at Ottawa on Feb. 19 in goaltender Rick DiPietro’s last start before being assigned to the American Hockey League. The under is 4-0 in the Senators’ last four road games.

Colorado Avalanche at Columbus Blue Jackets (+114, 5.5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Semyon Varlamov (COL), Sergei Bobrovsky (CBJ)

Ryan O'Reilly will make his first appearance of the season against the Columbus Blue Jackets in the opener of a three-game road trip. O'Reilly, the leading scorer for Colorado last season, had his five-week contract stalemate come to an end when the Avalanche announced Thursday they had matched Calgary's two-year, $10 million offer. Columbus owns the league's worst record and is mired in a hard-luck, four-game winless streak as it opens a four-game homestand. Each defeat has come by one goal and the last two were in overtime, including Friday's 4-3 setback at the high-flying Chicago Blackhawks. The over is 5-1-1 in the Blue Jackets’ last seven home games.

St. Louis Blues at Dallas Stars (-106, 5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Brian Elliott (STL), Kari Lehtonen (DAL)

The Blues, who posted a 3-0-1 mark in their last four road contests, have won four consecutive games versus the Stars. While St. Louis has found its rhythm on the road, Dallas has won just once in its last four games at American Airlines Center. The Stars put forth a listless performance in a 5-1 setback to Edmonton on Thursday. Kari Lehtonen returned from a five-game absence with a groin injury to turn aside 33 shots in the loss. St. Louis skated to a 4-3 victory over Dallas on Jan. 26 and the under is 4-1 in its last five road games.

Carolina Hurricanes at Florida Panthers (+106, 5.5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Dan Ellis (CAR), Jacob Markstrom (FLA)

The Carolina Hurricanes made short work of the Florida Panthers at home on Saturday, scoring three times in the first 10 minutes of a 6-2 victory. Florida starting goaltender Jose Theodore suffered a lower-body injury on the first shot of Saturday’s game and left early. Scott Clemmensen allowed six goals for the second time this season, leaving the Panthers with some very immediate concerns in the crease. Florida, which defeated Carolina 5-1 in its season opener, has allowed a league-worst 79 goals this season. The under is 5-0 in the Panthers’ last five games playing the second half of a back-to-back.

Montreal Canadiens at Boston Bruins (-208, 5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Peter Budaj (MTL), Tuukka Rask (BOS)

Boston posted its sixth consecutive victory Saturday afternoon, rallying from a two-goal deficit to record a 3-2 triumph over the Tampa Bay Lightning. Montreal is coming off a wild 7-6 overtime loss at home to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday. Despite the setback, Montreal extended its point streak to 10 games, as it has gone 7-0-3 since suffering a 6-0 home loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Feb. 9. The Habs have dropped each of their last five meetings with Boston, with all five losses being one-goal decisions.

Buffalo Sabres at New York Rangers (-222, 5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Jhonas Enroth (BUF), Henrik Lundqvist (NYR)

Rick Nash (concussion) returned to the ice Thursday to aid in snapping the New York Rangers' four-game losing skid. While the Rangers are rested, the Sabres went the extra mile on Saturday before recording a 4-3 shootout victory over New Jersey. Henrik Lundqvist is just 10-9-2 in his career against the Sabres, who are 0-4 in their last four Sunday contests.

Edmonton Oilers at Minnesota Wild (-140, 5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Devan Dubnyk (EDM), Niklas Backstrom (MIN)

The Edmonton Oilers could be without one of their top young forwards Sunday, when they continue their nine-game road trip against the Northwest Divison-rival Minnesota Wild. Taylor Hall exited Friday’s loss to the Blues with a leg injury and may miss Sunday's showdown. Eight of Minnesota's last 10 games have been decided by one goal. The Wild are 5-2-1 in those contests, including a 3-0-1 mark at home. The home team has captured 26 of the last 35 games in the all-time series, while Edmonton has won only five of its last 26 visits to Minnesota.

Vancouver Canucks at Calgary Flames (+123, 5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Roberto Luongo (VAN), Joey MacDonald (CGY)

The Canucks defeated Los Angeles 5-2 at home on Saturday to increase their division lead to four points, while Calgary sits in the cellar and has allowed 66 goals - worst in the Western Conference. The Canucks defeated the Flames 3-2 in a shootout on Jan. 23 and 5-1 on Feb. 9. Both games were in Vancouver. The Canucks are 6-0-1 against divisional opponents this season.
