Devils money line (-125)

Rangers -1.5 (+154)

Senators vs Red Wings over 7 (+114)

NHL parlay odds: +878

Devils money line (-125)

The Devils have played good hockey at a time they really needed to. After a tough November, New Jersey was beginning to fall behind in an extremely comPetitive Eastern Conference. But they currently find themselves winners of 5 out of their last 6 with the loss being somewhat flukey.

The Flames have moderately bounced back from their bad start to the season. But they still are 11-12-3 and objectively do not have the high-end talent that Devils possess. New Jersey is the better team in better form. They will also play with added urgency as they still have work to do to get and stay in the Eastern Conference playoff picture.

Rangers -1.5 (+154)

The Rangers and Capitals are a couple of teams that have gone different directions over the past couple of weeks. New York has continued to get the job done Game after Game. They have the best point percentage in the NHL and they also have 9 wins in their last 12 played on the road.

The Capitals seem to have come back down to earth a little bit after a surprisingly strong start to the season. They have lost 5 out of their last 7 games and despite being above .500, Washington has a -14 goal differential. The Capitals have really struggled to score and have yet another uphill battle on Saturday. This one looks to be all Rangers.

Senators vs Red Wings over 7 (+114)

This will be the 3rd meeting between the Senators and Red Wings already this season. Detroit took the first Game by a score of 5-2. Ottawa took the second Game by a score of 5-4. That brings the average Game total between the Senators and Red Wings to 8.00. When these teams meet, totals typically climb.

Those couple high totals made it now 5 overs in the last 6 played head to head. Ottawa scores the 8th most goals per Game in the NHL while Detroit scores the 2nd most goals per Game in the NHL. Neither team particaulrly excels in goal prevention. That combination of strong scoring and weaker goal prevention is a good recipe for another high total.
