The St. Louis Blues are playing some of their best hockey in recent years, and they look to extend their win streak to four games when the New York Rangers come to town for Thursday night NHL betting action.
St. Louis is regarded as a -135 home favorite at TopBet, while the OVER/UNDER total is set at 5 goals.
The New York Rangers snapped a two-game losing skid with a win over the Florida Panthers on Saturday, but returned to the loss column by falling 1-0 to the Dallas Stars last time out. That loss came with the Rangers as the oddsmakers' choice as favorites.
St. Louis has defeated Anaheim, Detroit and San Jose during this current streak, and they hold a lopsided lead in head-to-head matchups with the Rangers - they will see the majority of action on the NHL betting lines.
Montreal will play a Philadelphia Flyers team ravaged with injuries to star players on Thursday in NHL betting action. The Flyers have dominated the Canadiens head-to-head, but losing NHL scoring leader Claude Giroux and stud defenceman Chris Pronger really hurts.
Montreal is missing Scott Gomez and Brian Gionta, so things could be tough for them as well. The Flyers will see most of the action in this game on the NHL betting lines at TopBet.
Toronto skates into Buffalo in Friday night NHL betting action in search of a fourth straight win over the Sabres. Buffalo will likely be a small home favorite in this contest, but the Maple Leafs' recent dominance of the Sabres might sway some to lay their money on a road underdog.
This game means a lot in the Northeast Division with the Maple Leafs holding a two-point lead on Buffalo for second place, and it should bring out the best in both teams.
Three of the last four matchups between these teams have made winners of OVER bettors in totals betting.
