This Week's Best NHL Bets
By Covers.com

Every week, we update you on who's hot, who's not and situational betting spots in the National Hockey League.

For the week of March 31-April 6.

Hot team

San Jose Sharks (3-0 SU)

The Sharks extended their winning streak to seven games with a 2-1 victory over the Flames Friday night and have moved up to fifth in the Western Conference standings entering play Sunday. San Jose has rallied behind goaltender Antti Niemi who has yielded just 10 goals during the streak. The Sharks host the Stars Sunday before heading out on a four-game road trip.

Cold team

Calgary Flames (0-4 SU)

The Flames traded away captain Jarome Iginla and stud defenseman Jay Bouwmeester at the trade deadline and could limp towards the finish line. Calgary has dropped five straight heading into Monday’s clash with Colorado.

Best over play

Philadelphia Flyers (3-1 SU, 3-1 over/under)

The Flyers had scored five goals in three consecutive games but laid an egg in Winnipeg on Saturday, finding the back of the net just once. Philadelphia currently finds itself outside of the playoff picture in the East and will be pushing for a victory Tuesday in Long Island.

Best under play

Colorado Avalanche (0-4 SU, 0-4 over/under)

The Avalanche are losers of four straight and eight of their last nine games. Colorado has averaged 1.55 goals per game over its last nine contests, helping boost its season O/U mark to 14-20-4. The Avs host the Flames Monday before heading to California for a tough back-to-back with the Kings and Ducks.

Surveying the schedule:

The Buffalo Sabres play seven of their final 10 games at First Niagara Center. The Sabres have an 11-6 O/U mark at home.

The Ottawa Senators continue their season-long seven-game road trip Sunday in Florida. The Senators lost the first two games of the trip to drop their road record to 6-9-3 SU. Ottawa will stop in Tampa Bay, Philadelphia, New Jersey and Boston to close out of the road trip.
