Take Underdog Islanders, Favored Panthers, in NHL Parlay

There is some decent value in our NHL odds on the Tuesday night schedule for a three –or four–game parlay

Home teams have been made the favorite in seven of eight games, but two will be on their second of a back-to-back stretch. Six of the 16 teams will be on the ice again after playing games on Monday.

Road teams Dallas, Minnesota, and Vancouver all played on Monday afternoon while Ottawa won in Tampa Bay at night. Vegas and Winnipeg played on the road Monday before coming home to host Nashville and Minnesota, respectively.

Colorado, a co-favorite in Vegas NHL odds to win the Stanley Cup at +850, hosts Vancouver on Tuesday while Florida (+900) hosts Ottawa and Dallas (+1100) visits the New York Rangers (+1000).

Start With the Over at The Garden: Stars, Rangers Over 6½ (Ev)

The Dallas Stars top the league in scoring and the Metropolitan Division-leading New York Rangers have won seven straight after the 6-5 overtime win over the New York Islanders on Sunday outdoors.

Even though the Rangers could get strong goaltending from either Jonathan Quick or Igor Shesterkin, important defenseman Ryan Lindgren is questionable with an upper-body injury and Dallas is tough to hold down.

The Stars will also likely go with backup Scott Wedgewood (.897 save percentage) in net after No. 1 goalie Jake Oettinger played in the 4-3 shootout loss at Boston on Monday.

Dallas won 6-3 in the first meeting at home. Seems like you can beat 6 ½ goals in this one at the sportsbook.

Expect Solid Effort From Islanders: Islanders ML (+115)

The Islanders have played better under new coach Patrick Roy, even though their record is a mediocre 3-3-3 in nine games.

This starts a very important stretch for the Islanders, who play four of the next five on the road where they are 9-11-5, and Roy’s team needs it badly after Sunday’s rough defeat.

So do the Pittsburgh Penguins, who blew a third-period lead against Los Angeles on Sunday and have dropped four of five. The Penguins seem to be in a bit of disarray and are struggling to score goals.

We think the Islanders will take this one on the moneyline.

Surprise: Take the Under in Winnipeg: Wild, Jets Under 6 (-125)

The Minnesota Wild scored 10 goals on Monday to beat Vancouver, the top team in the Western Conference.

The Winnipeg Jets gave up six goals in a loss at Calgary on Monday.

We think both teams will get back to what makes them successful – defense. The Jets lead the league in goals-against per game (2.34) and Minnesota gave up 10 goals combined during a 4-0-1 stretch before the 10-7 explosion on Monday.

Winnipeg backup Laurent Brossoit (.920 SP) could get the start Tuesday and Marc-Andre Fleury likely will be between the pipes for the Wild if you bet online. Take the under.

Panthers Should Continue Rolling: Panthers ML (-240)

The Florida Panthers could be playing better than any team in the league this month and boast five straight wins – nine in the last 10 games.

The Panthers have posted 26 goals during their current winning streak, including nine at Tampa Bay on Saturday. They also have won six of the last seven meetings with the Ottawa Senators, who are flying down after winning 4-2 at Tampa Bay on Monday.

Florida is the favorite in our NHL lines and should take care of the inconsistent Senators. The over (6½) is another good bet.


Kings, Caps Solid Alternatives

The Los Angeles Kings are 5-1-0 in their last six games – 4-1-0 since Jim Hiller replaced Todd McLellan as coach – and should handle the struggling Columbus Blue Jackets ATS at home.

We were ready to run with the New Jersey Devils as an underdog, but the Washington Capitals may be the better value (+145) on the moneyline at home.
