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)
