New York Rangers over Washington Capitals

When the action gets going on Wednesday, a pair of rivals out of the Metro get together. Just 4 points separate these two teams. Henrik Lundqvist is putting together a solid season with 2.61 goals against. The Rangers have dropped two straight games but got the rest they needed. They will be back at Madison Square Garden for this game, and that’s the team to take. The Rangers beat Washington on Wednesday.

Los Angeles Kings over Las Vegas Golden Knights

Two of the top teams in the Western Conference will get together on Thursday. The Los Angeles Kings are at home, a place that Vegas has struggled. The Knights are winning with smoke and mirrors and Malcolm Subban winning 8 out of 10 games this season. On Thursday though – Jonathan Quick gets the job done. With a 17-11 record; fine, but his 2.23 is impressive. Quick slams the door on Vegas on Thursday.

St. Louis Blues over Dallas Stars

The St. Louis Blues are one of the top teams in the Western Conference and fought hard late before the Christmas Break that was given. Now, the Blues are looking to get back on track in Dallas. The Stars are scratching and clawing, and have the Blues former head coach Ken Hitchcock at the helm.

Look for the young guys of St. Louis, with the scoring of Vladimir Tarasenko get the job done here. St. Louis wins on the road.

Boston Bruins over Ottawa Senators

Tuukka Rask and the Boston Bruins go on the road and beat the Ottawa Senators. Rask is 11-8-3 on the season, while he will face Mike Condon of Ottawa. Condon has allowed 3 goals per game this season in 10 games. Look for Boston to pick up a much-needed road win as they go to Ottawa and put up 4 goals in the win.

Calgary Flames over Chicago Blackhawks

The Chicago Blackhawks went to the Christmas Break as the 5th teams in the Central. Calgary is 5th in the Pacific. Both teams need to get hot to get into the postseason chase. The difference here is the Flames have the home ice. Corey Crawford takes on Mike Smith, but the home ice has been good to Calgary, and they beat the Blackhawks on Sunday heading into the 2018 calendar year.
