NHL Picks Feb 11-17

Dallas Stars at Tampa Bay Lightning
When: Thursday, Feb. 14 at 7:30 pm ET
Where: Amalie Arena, Tampa, FL
TV: ESPN+

Analysis: Dallas has climbed to third place in the Central Division behind the Nashville Predators and Winnipeg Jets. The Stars had been on a 5 match winning streak before back-to-back losses: 2-3 in overtime against Nashville and 2-3 on the road versus Arizona. Dallas lost 0-2 the last time they battled Tampa Bay and have a 10-14-3-0 away record.

Tampa remains the best team in NHL. The Lightning are 21-5-1-1 in home games. After losing back-to-back, 2-3 to Vegas in a shootout, and 0-1 to St. Louis in overtime, they beat Pittsburgh 5-4 on Feb. 9.

The Lightning should easily handle the Stars. Consider the puck line if you don’t want to lay the odds.

Pick: Tampa Bay Lightning

Toronto Maple Leafs at Vegas Golden Knights
When: Thursday, Feb. 14 at 10:00 pm ET
Where: T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, NV
TV: ESPN+

Analysis: The Maple Leafs are on a roll heading into the week. They’ve gone 5-1 in their last 6 with the only loss a 2-3 overtime game on the road against Detroit on Feb. 1. Toronto last battled Vegas on Nov. 6. They beat the Golden Knights 3-1 as a -130 favorite.

Vegas has a 16-7-2-1 record at home. But, the Golden Knights haven’t played well, going 2-5 SU in their last 7 heading into the week. Also, Vegas must battle Nashville on Saturday and that game means a lot more to the Golden Knights than this cross-conference matchup.

Toronto has a chance to win as a slight road dog.

Pick: Toronto Maple Leafs

Nashville Predators at Vegas Golden Knights
When: Saturday, Feb. 16 at 10:00 pm ET
Where: T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, NV
TV: ESPN+

Analysis: Nashville battles Vegas on the road on Feb. 16 hoping for the same outcome as when they last took on the Golden Knights. The Predators beat Vegas 2-1 as a -140 favorite.

Vegas should be much sharper in this Saturday game than they will be in their Thursday game. Expect the Golden Knights to show up big time. Nashville’s 15-10-3-1 away, though. The Predators will go off at overlay odds and might be under played. Backing Nashville to get it done.

Pick: Nashville Predators
