Welcome to the second half of the NHL schedule this is when it gets good.  Teams on the bubble will separate themselves from the pack one way up or down.  I like to ride the team on the way up playing with an eye on the Cup.  Tonight we have a solid 8 game slate in the NHL.  Good Luck and let cash!

TOP TEAMS TO TARGET

1. DALLAS STARS / WINNEPEG JETS

This game sets up to be a good old fashion shoot out in Dallas.  Both teams are in the top 12 in goals per game, with the Stars ranking 12th and the Jets 9th in the NHL.  Plus they both give up over 3 goals a game and rank in the bottom 5 in goals against.  The Dallas Stars (21-20-10) and Winnipeg Jets (24-25 -4) both still have a chance at the playoffs but need to get on a roll very soon.  Look for at least 8 goals in this game, you could stack both sides if you like.

2. TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS

The Maple Leafs (23-16-9) travel to St. Louis to play the Mike Yeo coached St Louis Blues (24-21-5).  The Leafs are ranked 6th in the NHL with 3.06 goals a game and the Blues are ranked 28th in goals against give up 3.12 goals a game.  The Leafs have their eye on the playoffs and will not let this game get away from them.  The Leafs light the lamp at least 5 times tonight.

3. MONTREAL CANADIENS

Max Pacioretty and the Montreal Canadiens (30-14-7) travel to Philadelphia to hook up with the Flyers (25-20-6).  The Flyers are a lot like the St Louis Blues, a team that can score but need a lot of work on the back end as the rank 25th in the NHL in goals against per game.  The Canadiens are playing focused hockey and will dominate tonight in Philly scoring 4 to cruise to an easy victory.

Best of the Rest: Chicago Blackhawks and Ottawa Senators
