With the Super Bowl betting already getting underway in the weeks leading up to the big game, the National Hockey League will steal the spotlight for a short time Saturday night, with a ton of action to get to on the ice. No matchup will be bigger than when the Pittsburgh Penguins clash with the Boston Bruins Saturday afternoon however, before the NFL divisional round games get underway.

Pittsburgh Penguins @ Boston Bruins

Saturday, 1:00 PM ET

The Penguins and Bruins have developed quite the rivalry dating back to the hit by Pittsburgh’s Matt Cooke that left Boston center Marc Savard out with a concussion. Savard is finally back on the ice, and was not mincing words when the Penguins blew a two-goal lead in last week’s 4-2 win for the Bruins. With both teams clashing in the top half of the Eastern conference playoff picture, the animosity will continue to build as both teams push towards the postseason. Penguins’ captain Sidney Crosby is still sidelined and won’t be available for this game, so Pittsburgh will need Evegeni Malkin and some of its depth players to step up to get the job done. The Bruins have won three straight and nine of their last 10, and will be a tough opponent at home.

Pick: Boston

New York Rangers @ Montreal Canadiens

Saturday, 7:00 PM ET

The Canadiens and Rangers will meet for the second time in five days, and after Montreal got the best of New York on broadway, Henrik Lundqvist and company are looking to return the favor. Just four points separates these teams between sixth and seventh place in the Eastern conference standings, and when it is all said and done these sports betting points could make the difference between getting in to the postseason and watching from home. Montreal is 14-6-3 at home, but the Rangers have been much better on the road than home at 15-7-1. Something’s got to give, but expect a three-point game.

Pick: Montreal

Calgary Flames @ Toronto Maple Leafs

Saturday, 7:00 PM ET

Maple Leafs’ captain Dion Phaneuf will skate against his former teammates when Toronto returns home to take on the Flames. The Maple Leafs won three of four on a western road trip that culminated with a 5-1 loss to Phoenix, and will look to get back on track against one of the worst sports betting bonus road teams in the league.

Pick: Toronto

Vancouver Canucks @ Minnesota Wild

Sunday, 6:00 PM ET

The Western conference-leading Canucks will look to bounce back from just their second loss in 10 games when they take on the Wild Sunday afternoon, with the chance to extend their lead over the Detroit Red Wings for top spot. Vancouver currently leads the Red Wings by three points in the standings, and will be taking on a Minnesota team that is playing .500 hockey at home. Minnesota has lost two in a row, now the Canucks will make it three-of-a-kind.

Pick: Vancouver
