By Covers.com

Boston Bruins at Pittsburgh Penguins (-135, 5.5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Tuukka Rask (BOS), Tomas Vokoun (PIT)

The Pittsburgh Penguins are riding high on the strength of an eight-game winning streak. The Boston Bruins were in prime position to end Pittsburgh's impressive stretch on Tuesday before squandering a two-goal lead en route to a 3-2 setback. Boston, which boasts the league's best penalty kill, has thwarted 25 straight short-handed opportunities. The under is 4-0-1 in the Bruins’ last five overall.

Winnipeg Jets at Ottawa Senators (-122, 5)


Probable starting goaltenders: Ondrej Pavelec (WPG), Robin Lehner (OTT)

Winners of three in a row and a 5-0-1 mark in their last six contests, the Jets will look to keep their good fortune going on Sunday when they visit Canada's capital city. The Senators improved to 2-2-4 in their last eight outings with a win over Buffalo Saturday, and have been competitive despite nursing several injuries. Ottawa extended its string of games decided by one goal to 11, which is one shy of matching the NHL record set by the 1997-98 Chicago Blackhawks. The road team is 5-0 in the last five meetings.

Buffalo Sabres at Washington Capitals (-131, 5.5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Jhonas Enroth (BUF), Braden Holtby (WSH)

The Capitals edged the Southeast Division-leading Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday to snap a three-game losing streak before dropping a 4-1 decision to the Boston Bruins two days later. Buffalo has won only one of its last seven visits to Washington and the home team has won five of the last six games in the all-time series.

Nashville Predators at Edmonton Oilers (-117, 5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Pekka Rinne (NSH), Devan Dubnyk (EDM)

Edmonton will look to avenge a 6-0 defeat in Nashville on March 8. The Predators have won nine of their last 12 visits to Edmonton despite, but are just 1-7-1 in their last nine road games. The winning team has scored six goals in three of the last four matchups.
