Bruins at Flyers: What Bettors Need to Know
Covers.com

Boston Bruins at Philadelphia Flyers (-102, 5.5)

Brad Marchand looks to continue his torrid stretch on Saturday afternoon as he guides the Boston Bruins into Philadelphia to face the Flyers. Marchand has recorded consecutive two-goal performances to highlight his four-game goal-scoring streak and has 11 tallies in his last 15 contests. Linemate Patrice Bergeron extended his point streak to four games by setting up both of Marchand's goals in Boston's 3-2 triumph over Los Angeles on Monday.

After winning seven of eight, Philadelphia has dropped six of its last eight (2-4-2) - including three in a row (0-2-1). A severe snowstorm in the City of Brotherly Love positioned the Flyers into an impromptu back-to-back set against Carolina and red-hot Columbus - and the results weren't pretty. Brayden Schenn scored for the third time in five games and Vincent Lecavalier also tallied in Thursday's 5-2 loss to former teammate Sergei Bobrovsky and the Blue Jackets.

ABOUT THE BRUINS (31-15-3): Forward Chris Kelly is nearing a return after being sidelined since Dec. 7 with a broken fibula. Kelly also could be joined by defenseman Dougie Hamilton, who has missed the last four games with a concussion. "(We're) slowly getting back to our regular lineup, I guess, and I think right now our guys are really focused on our team as it is, and just going out there every game, competing," coach Claude Julien said.

ABOUT THE FLYERS (25-21-6): Signed to a three-year contract extension, Steve Mason hopes to be the long-term face of Philadelphia goaltending. With that in mind, Mason unveiled his new mask during Friday's practice with teammates Claude Giroux, Wayne Simmonds, Jakub Voracek and Scott Hartnell transformed into zombies. "He asked me and I was pretty pumped about it," Giroux said. "He's huge for this team. He wants to be here, he wants to win. When some teammates do something like that, it's pretty cool."

TRENDS:

* Home team is 4-0 in the last four meetings.
* Bruins are 10-3 in the last 13 meetings.
* Bruins are 8-1 in their last nine vs. Metropolitan.
* Over is 10-1-1 in Flyers last 12 Saturday games.

OVERTIME:

1. Philadelphia RW Matt Read scored in each of his last two games versus Boston last season.

2. The Bruins are in the midst of playing seven of nine games on the road.

3. Simmonds and Hartnell saw their respective five-game point streaks come to an end on Thursday.

Wild at Sharks: What Bettors Need to Know
By Covers.com

Minnesota Wild at San Jose Sharks (-200, 5)

The San Jose Sharks continue their four-game homestand in search of their sixth straight overall victory when they face off against the Minnesota Wild on Saturday. San Jose improved to 2-0-0 on its home swing with a 1-0 triumph over Winnipeg on Thursday. Joe Pavelski continued to carry the club, extending his goal-scoring streak to four games with his third winning tally in as many contests, and Alex Stalock made 20 saves en route to his second consecutive shutout.

Minnesota bounced back from a shutout loss at Dallas with a 2-1 home victory over Chicago on Thursday. Jason Pominville and Matt Cooke scored first-period goals and Darcy Kuemper came within 32 seconds of his second career blanking as the Wild posted their third win in four meetings with the reigning Stanley Cup champions this season. Minnesota and San Jose split their first two encounters, with each club recording a 3-1 victory at home.

ABOUT THE WILD (28-20-5): Zach Parise returned to the lineup Thursday after missing 14 games with a foot injury and logged 19:34 of ice time. Pominville scored his team-leading 20th goal on Thursday, marking the seventh time in nine seasons he has reached the plateau. Kyle Brodziak notched an assist on Cooke's goal for his 200th career point.

ABOUT THE SHARKS (33-12-6): Pavelski is second in the NHL with 28 goals, seven behind Washington captain Alex Ovechkin, and three shy of his career high set in 2011-12. The 29-year-old United States Olympian has netted seven goals during his four-game streak and has 12 tallies in his last 11 contests. Pavelski joined teammate Patrick Marleau as the only players in franchise history to record the winning goal in three consecutive games.

TRENDS:

* Home team is 17-5 in the last 22 meetings.
* Wild are 2-12 in the last 14 meetings in San Jose.
* Sharks are 5-0 in their last five overall.
* Under is 6-0-2 in Wild last eight vs. Pacific.

OVERTIME:

1. Stalock, who posted a 24-save shutout over Florida on Jan. 16, extended his scoreless streak to 140 minutes, 59 seconds.

2. Pominville, who his one point shy of 500 for his career, became the 15th player in Wild history to hit the 20-goal mark.

3. Four of the victories during San Jose's winning streak were one-goal decisions.
