Canadiens at Bruins | OddsShark Matchup Report
Opening NHL Odds: Bruins -199 Favorites
The Bruins will be looking to rebound from a huge upset loss in their last game when they host the Canadiens on Wednesday. Boston fell 3-1 to the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday as a massive -360 road favorite, with the UNDER cashing for the third time in four games. The Bruins saw their six-game winning streak snapped, and the Tampa Bay Lightning are just one point behind them now for the lead in the Atlantic Division. Montreal is coming off a 3-2 overtime loss to the Arizona Coyotes on Monday as a -145 home favorite, ending the team’s three-game winning streak, with the UNDER cashing for the third straight time as well.
Flames at Kings | OddsShark Matchup Report
Opening NHL Odds: Flames -143 Favorites
The Flames will attempt to extend their winning streak to three games when they visit the Kings in the third game of a four-game road trip. Calgary has beaten the Vancouver Canucks and San Jose Sharks by identical 6-2 scores in the first two games of the trip, with the OVER cashing both times. Los Angeles has gone in the opposite direction, dropping five games in a row and 10 of 11 en route to the worst record in the Western Conference. The UNDER is on a 5-1-2 run for the Kings, who have surprisingly won three of the past four meetings with the Flames. The UNDER is on a 6-2 series run too.
Blackhawks at Canucks | OddsShark Matchup Report
Opening NHL Odds: Canucks -149 Favorites
The Blackhawks will try to continue their remarkable run in the second game of back-to-backs when they visit the Canucks despite coming off a loss on Tuesday. Chicago suffered its fourth consecutive setback 5-3 to the Edmonton Oilers as a -105 road underdog but has gone 9-2 the last 11 times in the second game of a back-to-back situation. Meanwhile, Vancouver is hoping to stay atop a competitive Pacific Division after beating the Nashville Predators 6-2 as a -105 home underdog on Monday. The Canucks ended a four-game skid with that victory and will be playing the third of six straight games at home, where they are 18-6-3 this year.
