Only eight points separates the top eight teams in the National Hockey League’s Eastern conference playoff race heading in to Tuesday night’s action, and with so little room from the top to the bottom, the battle for position will once again be in the spotlight this week.

Ottawa Senators @ Boston Bruins

Tuesday, 7:00 PM ET

The Senators have fallen in to a string of mediocrity that is unprecedented in the franchise’s past 10 years, falling all the way to 13th in the NHL standings ahead of only the New York Islanders and lowly New Jersey Devils. Ottawa has struggled to score goals and stop pucks from going in as well, and will have a tough time turning their season around now 11 points back of the Montreal Canadiens for the final playoff spot in the conference. The Senators will try to snap a five-game losing streak when they take on the Northeast division-leading Bruins Tuesday night in Boston, with the only favorable factor in the matchup being the fact that they’re a better road team than home, and that the Bruins have played better away from home than they have at the TD Banknorth Gardens.

Pick: Boston Bruins

Pittsburgh Penguins @ Montreal Canadiens

Wednesday, 7:30 PM ET

The Penguins have lost three straight and are at risk of falling further behind the Philadelphia Flyers for the top spot in the Eastern conference. That means little to the Montreal Canadiens, who are two sports betting bonus points back of Boston for first in the division, but rank eighth in the conference with just 49 points. The Canadiens have strung together consecutive wins after cooling off big time in the month of January, but will have a tough time extending that streak against a Penguins’ team that will have a couple of hometown players on the ice in netminder Marc-Andre Fleury and Kris Letang.

Pick: Penguins

Vancouver Canucks @ New York Rangers

Thursday, 7:00 PM ET

The Rangers have gotten at least a point in eight of their last ten games to climb to sixth spot in the Eastern conference standings, but will have a tough time keeping that run going against the hottest team in the NHL right now. The Canucks are undefeated in regulation through their past ten games with eight sports betting wins over that span, and are 12-5-3 overall atop the Western conference standings.

Pick: Canucks

Philadelphia Flyers @ Atlanta Thrashers

Friday, 7:30 PM ET

The Flyers will look to extend their leads in both the division and conference when they take on Atlanta on Friday night, an opponent that has an identical record at home and away at 11-8-4. The Thrashers are the epitomy of average with as many goals scored as allowed this season, and will look to snap a string of consecutive losses against one of the best road teams in the league. Philadelphia is 13-4-3 away from home, and have won three straight, even more than the city’s NFL betting team.

Pick: Philadelphia
