Strong Starts Make Red Wings, Canadiens Worth Putting Some Money On During Sunday Slate

Posted by Barry Melrose on 10/31/2014 9:46:29 PM

It might still be early but the first three weeks of the NHL season have provided an increased level of optimism for some teams while dampening that for others. While the highly anticipated showdown between Tom Brady and Peyton Manning will steal the betting spotlight for Sunday there is a strong slate of NHL games including three that bettors might want to take a look at.

Detroit Red Wings @ Buffalo Sabres

Sunday, 5:00 PM ET

The Sabres have wasted little time sinking towards the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings and one reason not to expect a major turnaround is the fact that a terrible year will benefit the franchise if it can lock up a top prospect like Connor McDavid at next year’s NHL Draft. Meanwhile, the Red Wings won’t come anywhere close to the lottery sweepstakes as they have their sights set on a playoff return. A healthy Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk has been complimented by a strong young class led by Gustav Nyquist and Tomas Tatar while Jimmy Howard has raised his level of play along with the team in front of him. Head coach Mike Babcock won’t let his team’s level of play dip against an inferior opponent so look for Detroit to keep on rolling against Buffalo.

NHL Betting Pick: Detroit Red Wings

Calgary Flames @ Montreal Canadiens

Sunday, 7:00 PM ET

Montreal was somewhat underrated heading in to the season despite last year’s run to the Eastern Conference Finals but nobody is overlooking the Canadiens anymore after they won eight of their first 10 games. Carey Price has lived up to his reputation as an elite goalie and a young core that includes PK Subban, Max Pacioretty, Brendan Gallagher, and Alex Galchenyuk has been excellent. Montreal has also shown an ability to come back late with comebacks to secure at least a point in eight of their 11 games including a 2-1 shootout win in Calgary earlier n the week. The Flames looked like they would have no problem clinching two points in that game before giving up the tying goal and losing in a shootout and they will have a much tougher time on the road after traveling across the country for the rematch.

Arizona Coyotes @ Washington Capitals

Sunday, 7:00 PM ET

The Capitals have had mixed results early on in their first season under head coach Barry Trotz but they have been playing a better two-way game and are a much more complete team than they were a year ago. The arrival of veteran defencemen Brooks Orpik and Matt Niskanen has provided a lot more stability on the back end and the improved defensive play will really show against a team like Arizona. The Coyotes have struggled to score goals and a slow start from goalie Mike Smith hasn’t helped as they have won just three of their first nine games. Alex Ovechkin and company still have the ability to score goals in bunches and as long as they continue to play a strong two-way game then the points will continue to come.
