As we pass the quarter mark in the online wagering season, it is easy to dismiss how good or how poorly some teams have played. But while it is true that some teams that have started strong are destined to cool off, those that have struggled out of the gates will have a tough time gaining back the ground they lost through their first 20 games. Here is a quick look at the NHL action that will open next week.

Carolina Hurricanes @ Ottawa Senators
Monday, 5:00 PM ET

While they both have shown some promise at different points this season, the Hurricanes and Senators both reside in their respective division basements, and will have a hard time climbing out of those holes anytime soon. While Ottawa is still a young team looking to preach consistency as they continue to develop into a contender, Carolina may be a team stuck in transition with a unique blend of veterans and developing players. Hurricanes’ netminder Cam Ward has given his team a chance to win at almost every opportunity this season, although the same cannot be said about Craig Anderson for the Senators. Carolina captain Eric Staal has been in an absolute funk, but playing on a line with young Jeff Skinner could be the spark he needs to get back on sports betting track.

St. Louis Blues @ Columbus Blue Jackets
Monday, 6:00 PM ET

There is no debating that the Blue Jackets are the worst team in the NHL this season, but credit has to be given to the team since the arrival of Curtis Sanford, who has helped Columbus to maintain a .500 record over their past 10 games. While they do not have the offense to win shootouts, the Blue Jackets are hindered by the lack of an elite goaltender and a soft defense core, and that has resulted in the worst goal differential in the conference at minus-24. While Columbus’ slow start may have eliminated them from even coming close to contending even before their season really got underway, the Blues have caught fire since the arrival of new head coach Ken Hitchcock, with points in eight of their past 10 games. One of the last things that Hitchcock needs to fix is the ability to win on the road, something that has escaped St. Louis so far this season.

Toronto Maple Leafs @ Anaheim Ducks
Monday, 9:00 PM ET

The entire NHL world seems to be waiting for the Maple Leafs to come crashing back down to earth, and while they have hovered around the .500 mark through their past 10 games, they haven’t shown that they can consistently contend with some of the league’s best teams. In contrast, the Ducks have been absolutely awful of late, and if they can’t turn things around in a hurry they will follow the Blue Jackets as the next team to be eliminated from sportsbooks playoff contention.  Anaheim has too much talent to continue to consistently lose, so they should have their way against the injury-riddled Maple Leafs on their own home ice.
