Reeling Bruins, 2-7 in their last nine, will make the playoffs if they win their last three games. Injured defenseman Dennis Seidenberg practised Monday but his game-time status is unclear. Goalie Tuukka Rask in 2-4 is his last six decsions. Hurricanes forward Riley Nash (upper body injury) should play.

New York Islanders (-190) at Washington Capitals (+160)

Second game in as many nights for the Isles, who beat Tampa 5-2 Monday. Defenseman Calvin de Haan (lower body injury) is questionable. Captials are 3-0-0 versus the Islanders this season. Center Nicklas Backstrom (upper body injury) is an uncertain starter.

Pick: The Capitals (+160) 

Buffalo Sabres (-270) at New Jersey Devils (+230)

eichelSabres could be without forwards Ryan O'Reilly and Jack Eichel (undisclosed injuries). Sabres are 6-2-2 in their last 10. Devils defenseman Jon Merrill (shoulder) is done for the season. New Jersey will miss the playoffs for the fourth straight season.  

Pick: The Devils (+230)

Pittsburgh Penguins (+165) at Ottawa Senators (-195)

mattPenguins are 12-1 in their last 13 despite long-term injuries to center Evgeni Malkin and goalie Marc-Andre Fleury. Back-up goalie Matt Murray will start and he's won five in a row. Senators forward Scott Gomez has one assist in 13 games since signing March 2.

Pick: The Penguins (+165) 

Tampa Bay Lightning (-110) at New York Rangers (-110)

Ryan

Lightning require one point to clinch a playoff spot. Minus Steven Stamkos (blood clot), Valtteri Filppula is centering Tampa's top line. Rangers may be without captain Ryan McDonagh (upper body injury). Chris Kreider has reached the 20-goal plateau for the second straight season.

Monday's 4-3 win at Toronto gave the Panthers a club-record 99 points and clinched home ice in the first round of the playoffs. Canadiens have recalled NHL All-Star Game MVP John Scott and defenseman Ryan Johnston from AHL St. John's and both will play.  

Pick: The Panthers (+210)

San Jose Sharks (-300) at Minnesota Wild (+250)

Spurgeon

A win would give the Sharks a club-record 28 road victories. James Reimer gets the nod in goal. A victory clinches a playoff spot for the Wild and they may have defenseman Jared Spurgeon back. He missed the previous two games with a lower body injury.

Pick: The Wild (+250)
