The National Hockey League is back. The 2017 – 2018 season has arrived, and the games will get started on Wednesday. There are some great NHL Hames during the first week of the season. Let’s take a look at the NHL Odds for several Games for the first Week of competition.

Top NHL Games of the Week

2017-18 STANLEY CUP POSSIBLE MATCHUPS

Pittsburgh Penguins vs. St. Louis Blues

The defending Stanley Cup Champions; in fact, the back to back Stanley Cup Champions are back in action. They will take on the St. Louis Blues on opening night. This is the second game of the night, but the best opening night game. The Penguins will send Antti Niemi in between the pipes against Jake Allen for the Blues. The Blues lost some key players, and have some bad injuries. Look for Pittsburgh to start their trip for a 3 peat with a win on Wednesday.

Nashville Predators at Boston Bruins

The defending Western Conference Champions get to action on Thursday. They will have a tough test as they will take on Tuukka Rask and the Boston Bruins in their first game of the season. The Bruins look to be a playoff team once again this season. Look for a great opening game for both teams, but the trends show the home team wins more often than not on opening night. Bet on the Boston Bruins to beat the Nashville Predators.

Pittsburgh Penguins at Chicago Blackhawks

A little crazy that the defending Stanley Cup Champions start the season with back to back games. After taking on the Blues on Wednesday night, now the Pittsburgh Penguins get the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday night. The Blackhawks were tremendous in the regular season a season ago but faltered in the postseason. Look for Chicago to have another great regular season. The Blackhawks beat a tired Penguins team here.

The Blackhawks are favorites against the Penguins.

Vegas Golden Knights at Dallas Stars

The Vegas Golden Knights play their first National Hockey League game of the season on Friday night. The Golden Knights go on the road to Dallas to take on the Stars. Ben Bishop is in between the pipes for the Stars in this game. Vegas will be hyped, but they are not going to have enough talent in this game to win. Take the Dallas Stars to win at home over the Golden Knights and spoil the opener.

Washington Capitals vs. Montreal Canadiens

Two Eastern Conference teams mix it up on Saturday night in the nation’s capital. These two teams have a long history of good games. Both teams are going to have great talent in the regular season again this season. Look for Washington to outskate and score more than Montreal in this game. This is a home game to bet on the Washington Capitals over the Montreal Canadiens.

There is a look at the Top NHL Games of the Week. We hope you have a great week, and enjoy the National Hockey League being back. Best of luck with all your NHL betting, and we hope you come back next week for more hockey talk!
