A couple of major rivalries will highlight this weekend’s National Hockey League sports betting action, with the Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens taking center stage the way they have since the beginning of hockey. It’s always an exciting sportsbook promo matchup regardless of where these teams are in the standings, while another division rivalry will have a lot more on the line. Take a break from your college basketball betting to check out these NHL games.

Los Angeles Kings @ Washington Capitals

Saturday, 12:30 PM ET

The Kings are barely holding on in the Western conference playoff picture, tied for ninth just two points back of the Calgary Flames for the final spot after a close loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday night. It won’t get any easier for Los Angeles however, as they continue their eastern road trip on Saturday afternoon against Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals. Washington has struggled all year with inconsistent play on the road, but owns one of the best home records in the league which is bad news for Los Angeles.

NHL Betting Pick: Capitals

Toronto Maple Leafs @ Montreal Canadiens

Saturday, 7:00 PM ET

The Maple Leafs are mired in one of the worst slumps in franchise history having not made the postseason in nearly a decade now, a streak that will almost surely continue this year. Toronto is seven points back of the Carolina Hurricanes for the final spot in the conference, and even further back of their Original Six rivals Montreal. The Canadiens have looked good following the All Star break with points in all but two games, climbing to sixth i the conference just two back of the Capitals for fifth. Like Washington, Montreal owns one of the best home records in hockey.

NHL Betting Pick: Canadiens

Carolina Hurricanes @ Tampa Bay Lightning

Saturday, 7:30 PM ET

The Southeast division has long been one of the weakest in the league, but that has changed this season with all five teams in the thick of the Eastern conference playoff race. Steven Stamkos and Dwayne Roloson have led Tampa Bay to the top of the division, the first time since the dawn of Ovechkin in Washington that the Lightning have held top spot. Now, Stamkos and company will need to find a way to send the eighth-place Hurricanes to their third straight loss.

NHL Betting Pick: Lightning

Boston Bruins @ Detroit Red Wings

Sunday, 12:30 PM ET

Two more Original Six rivals will take to the ice on Sunday, with a couple of division leaders in action in Boston and Detroit. The Red Wings have found their groove and are back on top of the Western conference after a tough 2009-10 season, but they’ll have a tough time keeping it going against Tim Thomas and the Bruins. Thomas is undoubtedly the leading candidate for this year’s Vezina trophy, and will need to show exactly why against a talented Red Wings’ team that will be an appropriate test to determine Boston’s merit at this point in the year.

NHL Betting Pick: Bruins
