With the NHL coming down to its final regular-season games, some teams are making their final playoff pushes as others try to hold on to playoff hopes. At this time of year, certain regular-season games essentially become playoff games. With a few such games on the schedule, fans are in for a great NHL Thursday night slate. So, without further ado, let's break it down.
Best NHL Parlay Picks Tonight - Thursday, March 30: 4-Leg Parlay Picks (+1634)
New York Rangers vs New Jersey Devils Prediction and Pick
This Metropolitan Division showdown between the New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils will have a playoff atmosphere on Thursday night, since only two points separate these teams in the standings. The Devils own the season series, 2-1, and will look to clinch it by winning this game. Two of the NHL’s best goaltenders go head-to-head here, as Igor Shesterkin takes the net for the Rangers and Vitek Vanecek tends goal for the Devils. Both goalies have been playing at a high level this month -- outside of Vanecek’s slip-up at the start of March. The value of Patrick Kane’s addition is showing for the Rangers, and this will be his first time facing the Devils since leaving Chicago. While this seems like a game the Devils will take at home, the Rangers are hot and hungry. They will steal this one on the road.
Leg-1 Parlay Pick: New York Rangers ML (+110)
Washington Capitals vs Tampa Bay Lightning Prediction and Pick
After losing to the New York Islanders in an OT shootout on Wednesday, the Washington Capitals need to all but win out to make the playoffs this season. That’s a tough task heading into a road game with the Tampa Bay Lightning. The task is even more difficult tonight, because Washington is expected to start Charlie Lindgren in goal. Lindgren has been decent this season, but he was awful in his last three outings. Over the course of those three games, Lindgren allowed seven, five, and four goals. Tampa Bay has the NHL’s 10th-ranked offense, scoring 3.39 goals per game, and the Lightning will exceed that average against Lindgren. With the Capitals fighting for their playoff lives and Tampa preparing for the playoffs, I like the over in this one, as it will be a high-scoring matchup.
Leg-2 Parlay Pick: Over 6.5 (+105)
Nashville Predators vs Pittsburgh Penguins Prediction and Pick
Thursday night's game between the Nashville Predators and Pittsburgh Penguins is a cross-conference matchup that will feel like a playoff game for both teams. The Predators are trying to play their way into a wild-card spot, while the Penguins are desperately clinging to their own wild-card position. Both teams have had an up-and-down month so far, but the Penguins’ recent 7-4 loss to the Detroit Red Wings was concerning. As for Nashville, the Preds are coming off of a 2-1 victory in Boston that spoiled the Bruins’ opportunity to set a franchise record for single-season wins. Nashville’s defense was stellar vs. Boston, and goaltender Juuse Saros, expected to start again on Thursday, was phenomenal with 35 saves. Nashville steals this one on the road.
Leg-3 Parlay Pick: Pittsburgh Penguins ML (+140)
Vegas Golden Knights vs San Jose Sharks Prediction and Pick
The Vegas Golden Knights could clinch a playoff berth with a win over the San Jose Sharks on Thursday. Meanwhile, the Sharks’ playoff dreams are on hold until next year because they’re just trying to build some momentum for the 2023-24 season. Vegas goaltender Jonathan Quick might be back in net after getting exposed on Tuesday night in allowing six goals to the Edmonton Oilers. If he starts on Thursday, Quick will look to quickly change the narrative by shutting down an inferior offense and getting his new team into the playoffs.
Leg-4 Parlay Pick: Vegas Golden Knights ML (-182)
