Re: NHL Betting News and Notes Thursday, April 25

Thursday's NHL Betting Notes
By Covers.com

New York Islanders at Philadelphia Flyers (-116, 6)

Probable starting goaltenders: Kevin Poulin (NYI), Ilya Bryzgalov (PHI)

The Islanders are 8-0-3 in April and have lost only once in regulation in their last 15 games (11-1-3) to move within one point of fifth-place Toronto. The Flyers have already been eliminated from playoff contention but appear intent on finishing strong, winning four of their last five games and scoring 21 goals in the four victories. The over is 4-0 in the Islanders’ last four overall.

Ottawa Senators at Washington Capitals (-118, 5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Craig Anderson (OTT), Michal Neuvirth (WSH)

Washington has won its last six contests at the Verizon Center, including a 5-3 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday to clinch its fifth division title in six seasons and ensure home-ice advantage in the opening round of the playoffs. Washington is 10-1-0 in April and 14-2-1 since March 21. Ottawa has been held to two goals or fewer in all of its losses in April and has not scored more than three since March 23. The Senators can clinch a playoff spot with a win and will get a boost from the return of reigning Norris Trophy winner Erik Karlsson (Achilles). The under is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings.

New York Rangers at Carolina Hurricanes (+142, 5.5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Henrik Lundqvist (NYR), Dan Ellis (CAR)

The eighth-place Rangers, who hold a one-point lead over Winnipeg, are vying for a season sweep of the Hurricanes. New York has won seven straight over Carolina - including a 2-1 home triumph on March 18 and a 4-1 road victory on April 6. The Rangers can clinch a playoff berth with a win or a regulation loss by Winnipeg.

Pittsburgh Penguins at New Jersey Devils (+111, 5.5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Marc-Andre Fleury (PIT), Johan Hedberg (NJ)

New Jersey posted a pair of 3-1 victories to claim a home-and-home set from the Pittsburgh on Feb. 9-10. Penguins G Marc-Andre Fleury is expected to play in the team's final two games before the playoffs. Fleury is just 15-19-4 lifetime versus New Jersey. The Devils are 12-3 in their last 15 Thursday games.

Toronto Maple Leafs at Florida Panthers (+140, 5.5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Ben Scrivens (TOR), Jacob Markstrom (FLA)

The Maple Leafs may have clinched their first playoff berth since 2004 in a victory last Saturday, but that is the only win in their last four games. Toronto owns a 3-0 road victory over Florida on Feb. 18. The Maple Leafs, who also defeated Florida 3-2 at home on March 26, look for their first sweep of the Panthers since the 2005-06 season. The Maple Leafs are 1-5 in the last six meetings in Florida.

Nashville Predators at Detroit Red Wings (-215, 5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Chris Mason (NSH), Jimmy Howard (DET)

The Predators had playoff aspirations a few weeks ago but have gone 1-7-1 over the last nine games to fall off the pace. Detroit is trying to avoid missing the playoffs for the first time since 1990 and has picked up back-to-back wins to move one point above Columbus for the eighth and final playoff spot in the West. The under is 7-0-2 in Detroit's last nine games.

Tampa Bay Lightning at Boston Bruins (-222, 5.5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Anders Lindback (TB), Tuukka Rask (BOS)

Boston has managed only 12 goals the last six games, losing to three teams that will not be in the playoffs. The Bruins, who have a game in hand, are even in points with Montreal for first place in the Northeast Division. The under is 3-0-1 in Boston’s last four home games.

Montreal Canadiens at Winnipeg Jets (+104, 5.5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Carey Price (MTL), Ondrej Pavelec (WPG)

The Jets sit one point behind a pair of teams for a playoff spot heading into Thursday's pivotal game against the visiting Montreal Canadiens. While Montreal has punched its ticket to the playoffs, it certainly hasn't resembled a top-tier team lately. The Canadiens dropped a 3-2 decision to New Jersey on Tuesday for their fifth loss in six games. Montreal remains even in points with Original Six-rival Boston atop the Northeast Division, but the Bruins have a game in hand. The Habs have taken the last four meetings.

Calgary Flames at St. Louis Blues (-210, 5.5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Joey MacDonald (CGY), Brian Elliott (STL)

The Blues, who enter Thursday's home matchup with the Calgary Flames in sixth place in the Western Conference, trail Los Angeles and San Jose by one point with a game in hand. St. Louis posted a 3-1 triumph over Colorado on Tuesday to improve to 10-3-0 in April. The under is 4-1 in the last five meetings.

Columbus Blue Jackets at Dallas Stars (-125, 5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Sergei Bobrovsky (CBJ), Kari Lehtonen (DAL)

Columbus has won six of seven and nine of 12, led by Vezina Trophy candidate Sergei Bobrovsky and an opportunistic offense. The Blue Jackets stand one point behind eighth-place Detroit in the Western Conference. A victory by Columbus would knock Dallas out of playoff contention. After winning five straight, the Stars have gone 1-3-1 - including a 3-2 defeat at San Jose on Tuesday. The road team is 4-1 in the last five meetings.

Anaheim Ducks at Vancouver Canucks (-150, 5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Jonas Hiller (ANA), Roberto Luongo (VAN)

The Ducks and Canucks have not met since splitting two games in January during the first week of the lockout-shortened season. Roberto Luongo will make his 17th start of the season for Vancouver and first since posting a 5-2 victory over the Nashville Predators on April 15. Both teams have locked up their respective divisions and the over is 5-1 in the last six meetings. Ducks C Ryan Getzlaf (rest) and RW Bobby Ryan (illness) won't play.
