    Only a handful of games left in the regular season, the final few playoff spots remain. We’re going to focus on those games with playoff implications.

    Minnesota Wild @ Pittsburgh Penguins
    The Penguins need every point they can get moving forward, the Wild have clinched a playoff spot already but the Wild are fighting for home ice and are still a long shot at the top spot in the Western conference. The East has been better than the west this year and Minny is missing their best player (Kaprisov). Kaprisov has been out for a month, the Wild are 6-2-2 in their last 10 and I’ll even give them the goaltending nod in this one. May be time for the Pens to hit the driving range and work on that golf game for next week.

    PICK: Minnesota Wild Moneyline (+130)

    Ottawa Senators @ Florida Panthers

    After Keith Tkachuk called them out for being soft, I think it’s started to hit home for Florida that need to start playing a more physical defensive game if they want to get into and have any sort of success in the playoffs. Ottawa still has a long shot of getting in, they pretty much need to win out. I don’t think they want to get into a run and gun game against the Panthers. Over Under is at 7 right now, that seems high for what essentially is going to be a playoff game.

    Pick:  Under 7 (-130)

    Tampa Bay Lightning @ New York Islanders

    The Islanders can pretty much lock in their playoff spot tonight. Tampa Bay would be silly not to rest up for a tough Toronto team. Islanders will cruise tonight.

    Pick:  NYI -1.5. (+170)

    Carolina Panthers @ Nashville Predators

    The Preds use their game in hand tonight in a must win game against one of the best teams in the East. Feels like a game where Nashville is desperate, they are going to need to send the kitchen sink at the Canes to have a chance, that should open up the offensive for Carolina. I don’t know who’s going to win but I think there will be more than 5.5 goals scored.

    Pick:  Over 5.5 (-105)

    Los Angeles Kings @ Vegas Golden Knights

    I just think Vegas is the better team. LA is playing for home ice, but I don’t think that will get them over the hump tonight. Mostly just a gut feel.

    Pick:  Vegas Moneyline (-120)
