This week has been a true test for NHL teams, since scheduling around the Thanksgiving holiday kept the league dark on both Tuesday and Thursday. As a result, several teams have been forced to play back-to-back weekend games. Many of the teams that played on Friday are right back in action on Saturday night, so fatigue could be an issue across the board.
Best NHL Parlays - Saturday, Nov. 25, 4-Leg Parlay Picks (+422) Buffalo Sabres vs. New Jersey Devils Prediction and Pick
The New Jersey Devils have been back-pedaling in the month of November – having lost seven out of 10 games this month. Riding a three-game losing streak into Saturday night’s home matchup with the Buffalo Sabres, the Devils know that it’s time to stop the bleeding with a win. The 2023-24 NHL season hasn’t been pretty for New Jersey so far, because the Devils’ high-powered offense isn’t living up to expectations, and the team’s defense allows the NHL’s fourth-most goals to opposing skaters (3.72 per game). Buffalo’s offense hasn’t appeared to be as lethal as was last season, when the Sabres led the NHL in goals per game for much of 2022-23. Adding to the Sabres’ scoring woes is the fact that superstar winger Tage Thompson went down with a left wrist injury on Nov. 14 and could be out for at least a month. Injuries have also hurt the Devils’ stars. Timo Meier has missed thelast four games, and Nico Hischier hasn’t played since Oct. 27. Despite those absences, there is still too much talent on New Jersey’s roster for the Devils to be playing as poorly as they have been. Look for a bounce-back win for New Jersey on Saturday night.
Leg-1 Parlay Pick: New Jersey Devils ML (-175)
Philadelphia Flyers vs. New York Islanders Prediction and Pick
The Philadelphia Flyers have turned a corner this season, and the difference from last year is night and day. While Philadelphia’s 10-9-1 record might not seem all that spectacular, this team is above .500, and die-hard Flyers fans recognize that when compared to last season’s 31-38-13 record, the 2023-24 has been sublime. With November wins over the Vegas Golden Knights, Los Angeles Kings, and Carolina Hurricanes, the Flyers aren’t just hanging with some of hockey’s big dogs, they are winning, too. It’s a less satisfying story for New York Islanders fans, because their team’s offense just hasn’t been there this season. The Isles score the NHL’s fourth-fewest goals per game (2.68). Defensively, New York has been a middle-of the-pack team, and star goaltender Ilya Sorokin hasn’t been up to par. However, Sorokin hardly deserves all the blame. Opposing teams have been teeing off on him because the Islanders’ defense has been nearly non-existent. Over his last three starts, Sorokin has made 39, 35, and 34 saves. He has also had two 40-save games this season. Both the Flyers and Islanders are playing the second game of a back-to-back set and both had to travel before this game, so play could get very sloppy on Saturday night. Nevertheless, since a rested Sorokin is expected to start in goal, my money is on the Islanders.
Leg-2 Parlay Pick: New York Islanders ML (-160)
Calgary Flames vs. Colorado Avalanche Prediction and Pick
The Calgary Flames and Colorado Avalanche will both be playing the second half of back-to-back games when they face each other on Saturday night. Each team is coming to Denver from a road game, and the freshest players on the ice are likely to be the backup goaltenders, who both get a chance to start. Normally a battle of backup netminders is not cause for excitement, but this one should be interesting. Flames netminder Dan Vladar is 3-1-1 with a 3.70 goals-against average and .868 save percentage. That’s nothing to brag about, particularly since Vladar has given up at least three goals in all five of his starts this season and allowed Detroit to light him up for six on Oct. 22. Colorado’s backup goalie, Ivan Prosvetov, has an even smaller sample size this season, having appeared in only four games. However, Prosvetov’s stats are healthier than Vladar’s. The 24-year-old Russian is 1-1 with a 2.90 GAA and .899 save percentage. Colorado enters Saturday’s matchup ranked third in the league for average goals per game (3.79). That statistic, along with Vladar’s struggles this season, is bad news for Flames fans. While I would normally pick the Avalanche to win this one outright, I just can’t trust Prosvetov enough to back them here. So, give me the adjusted total for this game, and we’ll go over on it.
Leg-3 Parlay Pick: Over 5.5 (-225)
Arizona Coyotes vs. Vegas Golden Knights Prediction and Pick
This has been a month to forget for the Stanley Cup champion Vegas Golden Knights, who have suffered five losses in November after looking like the best team in hockey in October. Of course, all teams are going to have ups and downs during an 82-game season, but this “down” for Vegas has been alarming. The Knights’ scoring was virtually non-existent in their five losses, and the only silver lining has been relatively high shots-on-goal totals in those games. On Saturday night, Vegas faces an Arizona Coyotes team that has certainly improved over the past few years, but not enough to expect to win a road game like this one. Look for Vegas to take care of business on Saturday night. Both teams have been off since Wednesday, so we should expect to see their best. If that’s the case, then Vegas’ best is something no opponent wants to see. The Golden Knights will get back on track Saturday night as they look to close out November on a high note and get off to a strong start in December.
Leg-4 Parlay Pick: Vegas Golden Knights ML (-240)
