The online sports betting experts know that teams like the Buffalo Sabres and Florida Panthers in the east, and the Minnesota Wild and Columbus Blue Jackets in the west, are in desperate need of a win to try and get themselves into a playoff position. The NFL betting is winding down as Super Bowl XLV approaches, and the sportsbook promo experts are starting to focus their attention on hockey. The NHL hockey scores from the games in the early part of this week can start to have an effect on the teams that are trying to reach those final playoff spots.

Panthers Rangers Betting – Tuesday, 7:00 PM ET

The Florida Panthers trail the Atlanta Thrashers by eight points for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. But the Panthers have not been helping their own cause as of late. After starting off January on a hot streak, the Panthers have only won three of their last 10 games. Their grasp on a playoff spot is slipping, and Florida needs to start winning.

The Rangers have shown steady progress as they have won six of their last 10 games. But the Rangers are only 12-10-2 at home, and have had problems putting teams away in Madison Square Garden. The Panthers could surprise the Rangers in this game if the Rangers are not careful.

Wild Blackhawks Betting – Tuesday, 8:30 PM ET

The defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks are having a very up and down season. For a time earlier in the year, the Blackhawks were in danger of falling out of playoff contention. The Blackhawks have won six of its last 10 games, but its last start was a loss to the Philadelphia Flyers. There is no shame in losing to Philly, but the Blackhawks just could not score goals in that game.

The Minnesota Wild have an incredible 13-8-3 record on the road. The Wild has also won six of its last 10 games, but lost its last start which was against the San Jose Sharks. The Wild are able to put games together on the road, and that could be the difference in this game.

Sabres Senators Betting – Tuesday, 7:30 PM ET

The Buffalo Sabres suddenly find themselves only six points out of the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Buffalo has won three of its last four games, including two desperately needed wins over Northeast Division opponents Montreal and Boston. The Senators has only won one of its last 10 games. Ottawa is falling like a stone in the Eastern Conference standings and are only six points from the basement. Take the Sabres in this game.

Ducks Blue Jackets Betting – Tuesday, 7:00 PM ET

The Anaheim Ducks are finally able to sustain wins this season as the team has won seven of its last 10 games. While the Ducks are 17-7-1 at home, the team is only 10-13-3 on the road. The Columbus Blue Jackets are 12-10-4 at home, and are currently riding a two-game winning streak. The Jackets are 13th in the Western Conference, but they are only four points out of the eighth and final playoff spot. Look for the Jackets to continue their winning ways against the Ducks.

Hurricanes Islanders Betting – Wednesday, 7:00 PM ET

Carolina has fought its way back into playoff contention and are only three points out of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. The Hurricanes have won five of their last 10 games, and have put themselves in a good spot to grab the final playoff spot before the all-star break. The Islanders looked like they were on the way to putting some wins together, but when it was reported that goaltender Evgeni Nabokov was picked up in waivers by the Isles, the team seemed to fall apart again. Even with 15-year man Rick DiPietro in net, the Isles have no confidence in their goaltending.
