2015 NHL Betting – Picks For Thursday, March 5

Posted by Don Melrose on 3/4/2015 8:52:56 PM

The National Hockey League regular season has fewer than 20 games left to go. It’s a time of year when every point is precious, and overtimes or shootouts carry even more importance.

Game 1: Calgary Flames @ Boston Bruins Thursday, March 5

There are other games on Thursday night in the NHL that are quite valuable, but none is more important to two teams in equal measure than this one. This is a game in which both teams are right on the edge of the playoff chases in their respective conferences. Calgary is in a three-way tie for the eighth and last playoff spot in the West, and Boston is in eighth in the East, only two points ahead of the ninth-place Florida Panthers. These teams are desperate, and that should produce a high quality of hockey when face-off time arrives. Boston has won two straight after enduring one of the rougher patches in its season. Calgary has won its most recent game and is 5-4-1 in its last 10, a decent but hardly great run of form. Boston is the team which has achieved a lot in recent years. The Bruins’ experience and their familiarity with pressure should lead them to a victory here.

NHL Betting Pick: Boston

Game 2: Minnesota Wild @ Washington Capitals Thursday, March 5

This is an excellent matchup, one between a Minnesota team that is 8-2 in its last 10 games and a Washington team that has won two straight games. The Wild have roared into a playoff position, tied for sixth in the Western Conference. Washington is one of the seven teams in relatively comfortable playoff position in the East, standing nine points clear of Boston for the seventh seed. Minnesota, despite being tied for sixth in its conference (whereas Washington is in seventh in its own conference), is actually in the more fragile position. The Wild are only three points ahead of the eighth-place teams in the conference. A brief losing streak could potentially push them out of the playoffs entirely. That sense of urgency is what should give Minnesota an extra edge, something that will lead to a one-goal win in Washington, D.C.

NHL Betting Pick: Minnesota

Game 3: Montreal Canadiens @ Los Angeles Kings Thursday, March 5

The final game on this slate is one in which the top seed in the East will be playing the defending Stanley Cup champions. The well-known part of the Los Angeles Kings’ track record over the past few years is that they have won while not being a highly-seeded playoff team. The Kings just focus on getting into the playoffs, and once they’re in, they turn on the jets. Expect Los Angeles to make the playoffs. It’s what this team does. Accordingly, you should expect the Kings to be able to take care of business at home against the Habs on Thursday night. Jonathan Quick should be able to stand tall between the pipes in a big game. He’s used to doing that.

NHL Betting Pick: Los Angeles
