The All-Star Break is over, and now it’s back to business with Daniel Alfredsson’s Senators in Boston to take on Zdeno Chara’s Bruins in NHL betting action on Tuesday night.
Playing the Bruins has not worked out in favor of the Senators for quite some time as Boston seeks its seventh straight head-to-head victory over Ottawa. 5Dimes lists the Bruins as -200 home favorites in this contest, with the OVER/UNDER set at 5.5 goals.
The Bruins can extend their lead over Ottawa in the Northeast Division to six points with a victory at TD Garden. The Senators dropped three straight heading into the break while Boston has dropped three of its last five, but most of the attention will be on the Bruins on the NHL betting lines.
New Jersey will host the Eastern-leading New York Rangers for the second time this season in another game sure to draw plenty of attention on the NHL betting lines on Tuesday night.
The Rangers can stay ahead of the Bruins in the East with a victory over the ailing Devils, who have lost three straight and are now being chased by Toronto for the final playoff spot in the conference.
New York defeated the Devils 4-1 at the Prudential Center once already this season, and they are likely to be the favorite among bettors on the NHL betting lines. The Rangers have won seven of the last 10 head-to-head, and four of the last five.
All eyes will be on the Florida Panthers and the Washington Capitals when the two Southeast Division rivals clash in NHL betting action on Wednesday. Both teams were tied with 55 points before the All-Star Break and this game will see plenty of action from both sides on the NHL betting lines.
Florida got past Washington 5-4 at home in early December, while the Capitals shut out the Panthers early in the season at BankAtlantic Center. The Panthers have won three of the last four head-to-head at home against the Capitals, who have struggled away from the Verizon Center.
