NHL Betting – Original Six Rivalry Takes Center Stage On Busy Weekend In NHL

Six weeks in to the National Hockey League season there is still so much to be determined. While the usual contenders such as the Washington Capitals and Detroit Red Wings are both back at the top of their respective conferences, and the New York Islanders and Edmonton Oilers are both in their conference basements, there is a lot of uncertainty in between. With a busy weekend in the NHL that included one of the league’s oldest rivalries being renewed, there are plenty of online sports betting opportunities.

Toronto Maple Leafs @ Montreal Canadiens

It seems as though no matter where these teams are in the NHL standings, they always play one another competitively. After all, it was the Maple Leafs that nearly eliminated Montreal from a shot at the playoffs in their regular season finale a year ago, in which the Canadiens stole a point in an overtime loss to squeeze in. Toronto opened the 2010-11 season with a 3-2 win as part of a four-game winning streak, but has lost 11 of 14 since to fall down the Eastern conference ladder. On the other hand, Montreal has been one of the most consistent teams in the league with a 12-6-1 record, which is good for first place in the Northeast division. The Canadiens were shutout by the Nashville Predators 3-0 on Thursday night, and will be looking to rebound in front of the home crowd against a Maple Leafs’ team that has put together consecutive victories.

Pick: Canadiens

Los Angeles Kings @ Boston Bruins

After watching Tuukka Rask turned aside all 41 shots he faced in a 4-0 win over the Florida Panthers on Thursday night, Boston Bruins’ head coach Claude Julien has a bit of an NHL betting dilemma. Veteran Tim Thomas is the league’s hottest goaltender after regaining his 2009 Vezina trophy-form, and will be in goal this Saturday against the Kings as the two netminders continue to battle for the starting job. Los Angeles has a pair of impressive netminders in Jon Quick and Jonathan Bernier, which has helped them to the best winning percentage in the Western conference, making this a defensive showdown. The Bruins get the edge as the home team with Los Angeles traveling all the way to the east coast.

Pick: Bruins

Chicago Blackhawks @ Vancouver Canucks

After being eliminated by the Blackhawks in the past two postseasons, the Canucks will look to get a little revenge against the defending Stanley Cup champions. Vancouver goaltender Roberto Luongo has regained his edge after a slow start to the hockey betting season, and will need to be strong again to counter one of the best offenses in the league. Chicago is actually better on the road than they are at home at 5-2-1, but the Canucks are undefeated in regulation in front of the home crowd this season.

Pick: Canucks
