Predicting Tonight's NHL Games

Predicting Tonight's NHL Games
With 13 games on the NHL schedule Thursday, no one can complain that there isn't any action available. Detroit can clinch a playoff spot for the 25th straight season with a win at Boston, and Philadelphia could move a step closer to doing likewise by beating Toronto.

Comparing Betting Lines & NHL Matchups 

Pittsburgh Penguins (-265) at Washington Capitals (+225)

Two hot goalies clash as Pittsburgh's Matt Murray goes for his sixth straight win, while Washington's Braden Holtby seeks to equal Martin Brodeur's NHL single-season wins mark of 48. Penguins have won 14 of 15, while Capitals are 1-1-2 since clinching the Presidents' Trophy.
