Oilers and Coyotes make for scoreboards lighting up

Maybe not the first two teams anyone thinks of when you hear offense, but the Edmonton Oilers and Phoenix Coyotes have a long history of lighting up the lamp against each other.

In the last 62 meetings between the desert dogs and oil country, the teams have topped the total 43 times. That 62 game span also includes an O/U record of 7-22-2 in the desert.

The Coyotes and the Oilers open at a puckline of 5.5.


League-worst offense going under for Sabres

The Buffalo Sabres are horrendous, there is no two ways about it. They average less than two goals per game, and have scored less goals in every single period than any other team in the NHL. It's pretty easy to tell that Buffalo is a good under play.

When the Sabres travel to Detroit, they will also carry added weight for under bettors. In the last six meetings overall between the Red Wings and Sabres have gone under and so too has the last five games at the Joe Louis Arena.

The Wings and Sabres open with a puckline of 5.


Datsyuk to return Friday as Red Wings push for playoffs

Detroit Red Wings superstar Pavel Datsyuk will make his anticipated return to the lineup as the Wings host the Buffalo Sabres Friday evening.

The Russian has played in just four games since the Winter Classic on New Year's Day and has not played since Feb. 27.

He's tallied 15 goals and 18 assists in his 39 games played on the season and will give the Winged Wheel a boost as they push for a playoff spot.

Heading into Thursday's schedule, the Wings own the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference standings with 86 points - three points up on eighth-seed Columbus Blue Jackets.


Budaj gets the start for playoff-bound Habs

The Montreal Canadiens will give Carey Price some rest and start Peter Budaj in the crease as they visit the Ottawa Senators Friday evening.

With 93 points and currently third in the Eastern Conference standings, the Canadiens have locked up playoff spot and all that remains now is jockeying for third or fourth position heading into the playoffs.

Budaj has performed admirably when called upon this season. He's posted a record of 9-8-2 and owns a 2.41 goals against average and .910 save percentage.

Capitals at Devils: What Bettors Need to Know
Covers.com

Washington Capitals at New Jersey Devils (-127, 5.5)

Two teams in quest of a postseason berth in the Eastern Conference lock horns Friday as the Washington Capitals visit the Metropolitan Division-rival New Jersey Devils. Both clubs enter the matchup out of a playoff spot, with Washington four points behind Columbus for the second wild card in the East and New Jersey trailing the Blue Jackets by five. The teams also respectively sit six and seven points back of Philadelphia for third place in the division.

The Capitals suffered their fourth straight loss and fifth in six games Tuesday, when they were blanked 5-0 by Kari Lehtonen and Dallas. The Devils are coming off their third shootout loss in four contests, a 3-2 setback at Buffalo on Tuesday. New Jersey won the first two meetings before being shut out by Braden Holtby 3-0 on Feb. 8 in Washington.

ABOUT THE CAPITALS (34-29-13): Alex Ovechkin's lead in his attempt at a fourth Maurice Richard Trophy is down to seven goals as Anaheim's Corey Perry - the 2011 winner - tallied twice on Wednesday to raise his total to 41. Ovechkin - who has scored only four times in his last 13 games - has not tallied at even strength since Feb. 27 at Florida, netting seven power-play goals in the meantime. The captain also owns a dubious mark as he enters Friday with a league-worst minus-36 rating.

ABOUT THE DEVILS (32-28-16): New Jersey must avoid the shootout if it hopes to post victories, as it has lost 15 straight trips to the bonus format - including all 11 this season. The club has converted just 3-of-39 attempts, with two coming in Tuesday's setback. Rookie defenseman Jon Merrill practiced with a full cage on his helmet Thursday and could be in the lineup against Washington after missing two games with facial injuries.

TRENDS:

* Under is 5-1 in the last six meetings in New Jersey.
* Capitals are 2-7 in the last nine meetings.
* Capitals are 3-13 in their last 16 vs. Metropolitan.
* Devils are 2-6 in their last eight vs. Eastern Conference.

OVERTIME:

1. Ovechkin has posted better than an even plus/minus rating only once in his last 22 games.

2. Only one of the Devils' final five games is against a team occupying a playoff spot. They host conference champion Boston in the season finale.

3. Peter DeBoer's next victory will be his 100th as New Jersey's coach.
