Avoiding the Wild might be your best bet

If you are looking for one team in the NHL to avoid Thursday, look no further than the Minnesota Wild. Minnesota has currently lost seven of its previous 10 games, but it gets much worse.

The Wild, who currently hold the ninth-worst road record, are travelling into hostile territory when they face the fifth-best home team in the Blues. Minnesota has lost eight-straight games against St. Louis, including the past four in the Scottrade Center.

The Wild (+182) will try to keep a grasp on a playoff spot when they take on the Blues (-199) Thursday.


Blackhawks' balance has kept them on the under

The Chicago Blackhawks are the rare team that ranks first in the NHL in goals (3.3 per game) and top 10 in defense (2.5 goals allowed). This stunning play has kept the Blackhawks going under as of late.

The Blackhawks have gone under in eight of their past nine games overall, including six-straight under’s on the road. The Blackhawks, who are coming off a victory over the Stars, are also an incredibly strong under play after a win. In the past 14 games following a win, Chicago has gone under 85.7 percent of the time.

Chicago and Boston open with a total of 5.5 Thursday.


Jeff Zatkoff to start for Pens versus Kings

The Pittsburgh Penguins have announced that backup netminder Jeff Zatkoff will get the start as the Pens host the Los Angeles Kings Thursday evening.

This will mark Zatkoff's 16th start of the season (18th appearance) for the Penguins. He comes in with a record of 12-4-0-1 and a 2.55 goals against average and .915 save percentage. He's also won back-to-back starts against the Dallas Stars and Tampa Bay Lightning.

Pittsburgh is currently a -110 home favorite.


Islanders remain a solid Over bet

Even without superstar-playmaker John Tavares in the lineup, the New York Islanders still seem to be scoring goals - and getting scored on - thus making them a top Over bet in the NHL.

The Isles are currently tied with the Ottawa Senators as the best Over bet in the league with an O/U record of 42-29. They've gone 5-2 O/U in their last seven games as they head into Florida to face the Tampa Bay Lightning Thursday.

Currently mired third from bottom in the Eastern Conference standings, the Islanders tally a respectable 2.7 goals per game but allow a league-worst 3.3 per game.

Blackhawks at Bruins: What Bettors Need to Know
By Covers.com

Chicago Blackhawks at Boston Bruins (-145, 5.5)

The Chicago Blackhawks can wrap up a postseason spot with one victory, but they'll have to get past one of the league's hottest clubs when they visit the Boston Bruins on Thursday. Making the playoffs is a foregone conclusion for the Blackhawks, who may not be able to catch Central Division-leading St. Louis but are locked in a three-team battle for the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference. Chicago beat Boston in a shootout on Jan. 19 in their first meeting since last season's Stanley Cup final.

The rampaging Bruins have taken control of the East and vaulted into contention for the Presidents' Trophy on the heels of a 12-game winning streak that was finally halted in a 2-1 home shootout loss to Montreal on Monday. Boston has not fallen in regulation since a 4-2 setback to Washington on March 1 and holds a seven-point lead over Pittsburgh for the top seed in the conference. The Bruins have limited nine consecutive opponents and 11 of their last 13 to two goals or fewer.

ABOUT THE BLACKHAWKS (42-16-15): Teuvo Teravainen made his much-ballyhooed NHL debut in Tuesday's win over Dallas, and while the 19-year-old Finn did not register a point, he made a favorable impression on his coach and teammates. The 18th overall pick of the 2012 draft logged 11 1/2 minutes of ice time and won all seven of his faceoffs, which was termed a "good start" by coach Joel Quenneville. "He comes in at the end of the season to a very good team, people put a lot of expectations on him, unfair expectations, but he came in here and played really good," forward Kris Versteeg said.

ABOUT THE BRUINS (49-17-6): Defenseman Adam McQuaid was shut down for two to three weeks in early March but has yet to return from a strained quadriceps that has sidelined him since Jan. 19. Boston has received a boost from rookie Kevan Miller, who has become a regular - if unexpected - contributor since he was called up from the minors in mid-November, posting a plus-17 in 39 games. "He makes smart plays, nothing is fancy, but everything is efficient," coach Claude Julien said. "He wins I’d say 90 percent of his battles along the way. He’s such a strong individual, and that’s what our team is built around.”

TRENDS:

* Blackhawks are 4-0 in the last four meetings.
* Blackhawks are 1-4 in their last five road games.
* Bruins are 6-2 in their last eight vs. Central.
* Under is 4-1-1 in Bruins last six home games.

OVERTIME:

1. The schedule down the stretch does not favor Chicago, which plays six of its final nine games away from home.

2. Bruins C Patrice Bergeron has scored a goal in four straight and is riding a five-game point streak.

3. The Blackhawks are 33-1-7 when scoring first this season.
