The NHL schedule makers decided to bore hockey fans, as there are an accumulative six games on hockey’s off-nights of Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. There are two games tonight, including one potential playoff round-one matchup between the Boston Bruins and the Tampa Bay Lightning. 
Today’s expected goaltender matchups for our highlighted games:
The Boston Bruins’ Linus Ullmark (19-8-7) vs. The Tampa Bay Lightning’s Andrei Vasilevskiy (26-16-2).
The Ottawa Senators’ Joonas Korpisalo (17-21-4) vs. The Buffalo Sabres’ Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen (24-18-3). 

Boston Bruins / Tampa Bay Lightning over 5.5 goals (-135)

Your $10.00 bet would return $17.14.
If the playoffs were to start today, the Boston Bruins and Tampa Bay Lightning would face off in round one. Tonight should be a playoff primer for both of these teams. 
Boston has exceeded this total in four of its last five games, averaging 4.0 goals per game. Tampa Bay has eclipsed this line in seven of its previous nine games, averaging 4.4 goals per game.
These teams have played three times this season. The final scores in those games were 5-4 Tampa Bay, 7-3 Boston, and 3-2 Tampa Bay – going over this line in two of three games while averaging eight goals per game. 

Buffalo Sabres moneyline & Tage Thompson point (+165)

Your $10.00 bet would return $26.50.
The Buffalo Sabres have won five of their last eight games and are expected to start Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen, the league’s hottest goaltender, in 2024. He has a 17-10-1 record, with a 2.11 goals-against average, a .925 save percentage and four shutouts. These two teams have played three times this season; Buffalo has won two of these games.
Tage Thompson has points in five straight and seven of his last eight games, totalling 10 points. He has seven points on his current four-game point streak against the Senators. Ottawa is allowing the fifth-most goals against in the league this season, averaging 3.6 per game.

Nazem Kadri Over 3.5 Shots on Goal – WON – (+$10.00)
Calgary Flames Moneyline & Over 5.5 Goals – LOSS – (-$10.00)
When you’re cold, you’re cold, and that’s precisely what Calgary is right now. They just lost another game to the Blackhawks, but hey, at least they’re Slackin’ for Macklin. Nazem Kadri led the Flames forwards in shots on goal with four. 
All-Time Record: 57-67 (-$136.49)
