 Vegas -½ +230 over BOSTON

7:08 PM EST. Regulation only. The Bruins are tied for the league lead with 68 points, but that does not mean they are unbeatable. The B's dropped a 4-3 decision to the Penguins on Sunday and it was the first time since 2011 that they blew a three-goal lead to lose a game. It was also the fifth loss the Bruins have racked up this season after posting a multiple-goal lead. Boston has now lost three of its last four with defeats coming to Columbus (3-0) and Philadelphia (6-5, SO) in addition to the Pens. Boston was outshot badly by Pittsburgh (38-to-22) on Sunday afternoon, which might suggest it is running on fumes headed into the All-Star break.

The Golden Knights struggles have been highlighted of late, as the team pulled the trigger and fired head coach Gerald Gallant. This is a "what have you done for me lately league", but when guys like Paul Maurice continue to cash cheques while consistently underperforming, one has to wonder why Gallant wasn't given a little more rope after going to the Stanley Cup Finals with an expansion team just two summers ago. Regardless, the wakeup call was sent to the Knights' locker room, although the wins have not begun to pour in. That leaves Vegas undervalued, as this is still a real quality outfit despite just one win in its last six games. There was some chatter that goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury would serve his one-game suspension for skipping out on All-Star weekend tonight, but new coach Peter DeBoer will delay that inevitability to a January 31st clash with Carolina. The extremely talented Golden Knights figure to be quite lively in this spot with the opportunity to go into the All-Star break on a high note.

N.Y. RANGERS -½ +154 over N.Y. Islanders

7:08 PM EST. Regulation only. Hello Alexandar Georgiev! It's such a pleasure to see back in the crease to face these Islanders. We've written before about our take on the Rangers and their crowded goaltending situation, but when Queen Henrik gets the night off, the Blue Shirts are dangerous as hell.  Georgiev started both games against the Islanders last week and he posted a 2-0 record while stopping 70 of the 74 shots fired his way. Georgiev has owned the Isles since coming into the league, as he's 4-1 with a 1.44 GAA and .955 SV% in his career against them.

We've been calling out the Islanders has frauds all season and those chickens have come home to roost. Sure, the Isles started the season at 23-8-2, but since then they have lost 10 of their last 15 games, including five of their last six. To expect the Islanders to pull the nose up on this tailspin would not be advisable, as they are just not equipped to be an elite team, while the Rangers are quite the opposite. The Rangers are loaded with stars and scoring up and down their lineup, while the Isles feature a ragtag group that needs every bounce it can get to keep up. If it sounds like we're piling on, it's because we are. Their goaltenders aren’t standing on their heads these days and we promised you that once their goaltenders return to their career norms, the losses would start piling up. Rags were two great prices last week against the NYI and beat them both times. There is nothing indicating that the Isles can now beat them.

Winnipeg - +275 over CAROLINA

Winnipeg -½ +275 over CAROLINA

7:08 PM EST. Regulation only. The Hurricanes are the best puck possession team in the league, but even the top clubs can have an off night. Carolina has lost three of four and was badly outplayed by the Ducks in a 2-1 loss two games ago. Carolina did cash a ticket on Sunday against the Islanders, but it was by the slimmest of margins (2-1, SO), while spotting a significant price (-180).

The Jets have been outscored 12-3 in their last two games. The two losses were to the Lightning (7-1) and Blackhawks (5-2). That opening night of the mother's trip in Chicago was surely a disappointing one. While these parents' trips often have more distractions, the players want to play well for their folks. On Sunday afternoon, the Jets badly outplayed Chicago, but ran into a hot goaltender and that was the difference in the game. If we knew who the hotter goalie was going to be, we'd have far more winners. This is now night two for the Jets with their moms on board and so they figure to be lively bunch taking back a nice price.

PHILADELPHIA -½ +190 over Pittsburgh

7:38 PM EST. The Penguins are great, no doubt, but the return of some key players on top of playing great hockey has Pittsburgh overpriced here in this fierce rivalry. Yes, Sidney Crosby is on a tear and when these two teams played back on October 29th, he added two more points to his 102 career total against the Flyers in a 7-1 victory, but Wells Fargo Center is one of the toughest buildings to play in this season and the Flyers are always going to be an appealing play when taking back a price at home. This one is all about value.
