NHL predictions

With the large amount of games on tonight’s NHL schedule, it might be hard to know where to start. We at the Last Word on Hockey have helped narrow your focus to our best bets. This round of NHL Predictions will help condense the slate into three best bets and one prop bet of the night.

NHL Predictions

Philadelphia Flyers vs Toronto Maple Leafs

Head-to-Head: Flyers 0-0 Maple Leafs

TV: NBC Sports Philadelphia; TSN4; ESPN+

Our opening game of NHL predictions has the Philadelphia Flyers visiting the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Flyers have won four straight games and are expected to go with Samuel Ersson in goal. However, always check social media before locking a fantasy starter. Philadelphia hasn’t given up more than three goals during this winning streak. Travis Konecny leads the team in goals with 25.

Ilya Samsonov is the confirmed for the Leafs, who have won three of the last five games. Toronto has been able to beat the good teams, but struggled against also-rans. Auston Matthews is up to 42 goals while William Nylander has 40 assists. The Leafs’ fourth-ranked power play will go up against the second-rated penalty kill of the Flyers.

Philadelphia has weathered the storm of losing Carter Hart, but Toronto finds a way to beat good teams.

Prediction: Maple Leafs win 4-2.

Montreal Canadiens vs New York Rangers

Head-to-Head: Canadiens 1-0 Rangers


Our second and featured game of NHL predictions has the Montreal Canadiens visiting the Big Apple. Sam Montembeault is the confirmed starter for the Habs, who got a 5-0 shutout of the Anaheim Ducks last time out. Nick Suzuki leads the team in goals with 19 and assists with 32. Suzuki has formed a strong line with Cole Caufield and Juraj Slafkovsky. The Canadiens penalty kill is 30th, but facing a Rangers club struggling to score extra-man goals.

Jonathan Quick is the locked in starter for the New York Rangers, who have won five in a row. Both Quick and Igor Shesterkin have turned in some solid performances in recent games. However, the Rangers power play has gone 0-for-17 and not scored in the last seven games. Artemi Panarin leads in goals (37) and assists (31) for the Rangers. New York’s defence has been strong during the last five games.

Concerns about the Rangers’ power play are great. The Habs spring the upset.

Prediction: Canadiens win 3-2.

Seattle Kraken vs Boston Bruins

Head-to-Head: Kraken 0-0 Bruins

TV: NESN; Root Sports Northwest; ESPN+

Our last game of NHL predictions has the Seattle Kraken taking on the Boston Bruins. Seattle stopped a three-game losing streak last time out with a shootout win over the New York Islanders. Joey Daccord is the confirmed starter for the Kraken. Jared McCann leads the team in goals with 21 and Vince Dunn is tops in assists with 31.

Boston is expected to go with Jeremy Swayman in between the pipes for this game. The Bruins have lost three of the last five games. David Pastrnak is the team’s leader in goals (33) and assists (44) for the Bruins. Brad Marchand recently played in his 1,000th career game, but the Tampa Bay Lightning spoiled the party with a shootout victory.

Both teams have been struggling to score goals, but Boston comes out with the victory.

Prediction: Bruins win 3-1.

Prop Bet of the Night

We found success with the Kraken getting the under night and we’ll stick with that. Daccord has been playing well and so has Swayman. Both offences have been struggling in recent games, which leads to the perfect storm of the under. The number of 5.5 is scary, but doable.
