Washington Capitals @ Buffalo Sabres
9th March 2020 @ 6.08 p.m.
The Buffalo Sabres are on a 6-game losing streak. They are not looking too good recently and every loss in their last 5 had to feel like the playoffs were constantly slipping out from their grasp. Buffalo are poor defensively conceding at least 3 goals in seven of their last nine matches. The Sabres are 4-1 from their last 5 home games.
The Capitals have lost 4 of their last 10 games and now have the Philadelphia Flyers on their tails in the Metropolitan Division. The Capitals may be coming out of this poos run in form. They have form against the Sabres winning 8 of the last 10 meetings. The question some people are asking is if it would be a bad thing for Washington not to win the Metropolitan Division. It would mean they would face the Penguins in the first round.
The Capitals are listed at (-170) with CanPlay. The Capitals will look for a strong display to prove they are moving out of their funk. While the Sabers are decent at home they won’t be good enough to stop the Capitals putting a few in the back of the goal. Get the Washington Capitals against the spread (-1.5) at (+143).
Arizona Coyotes @ Winnipeg Jets
9th March 2020 @ 7.08 p.m.
The last time these teams met up was on the 15th of October. These two teams are sitting on the outside looking in currently. They are within reaching distance of wildcard places but need to start tagging on a couple of wins each. The Coyotes lost the last time out 3-2 against the Calgary Flames. Arizona are currently 3-13 from their last 16 road games.
Winnipeg have won their last 5 home games. The Jets are just off a big 4-0 win over the Golden Knights. The Jets are tied for the 2nd wildcard spot and will be aiming to keep climbing the table. This game has major implications on the playoffs and both sides will be eager to win this game.
It is almost like splitting hairs with these sides and even though it can go either way the Jets are strong at home. Winnipeg are just off a big win against the Golden Knights and will carry that form into this one. Get them at (-125) with no line here at CanPlay.
Florida Panthers @ St. Louis Blues
9th March 2020 @ 7.08 p.m.
The Panthers are still in the playoff chase and continue their run when they take on the Blues. Florida are sitting fourth in the Atlantic Division just three points behind the Maple Leafs. The Panthers won 4-1 last time out against the Montreal Canadiens. Over the last 14 meetings between these two sides Florida has lost 10 and won 4 which isn’t too encouraging for the Panthers.
St. Louis are on a hot run of form winning 9 games from their last 10. The Blues are top of the Central Division in the Western Conference. The Blues are a much better hockey side, but will necessity give the Panthers the motivation they need to grab a win. The Blues will be too good for the Panthers and grab the win, get them against the spread of (-1.5) at (+151).
