The NHL regular season is nearing its conclusion and teams are looking to play their best hockey heading into the playoffs. There are several games for April 10 with the Sabres and Lightning highlighting play.
Boston Bruins versus Washington Capitals
Boston enters 5th in the Eastern Conference and Washington is 8th in the conference. Both teams are “average” on the Team Strength Oscillator and the Bruins have a +26 to +15 advantage on the Power Ranking Indicator. The teams have combined to play in games “over” the line in 11 of the last 12 games. The Score Predictor has Washington by a 3-2 score with 65 percent confidence. Note that Boston is more stable, coming in at +24 to +6 on the Team Volatility Oscillator. Look for Washington to edge Boston at home in a game “over” the line.
Buffalo Sabres versus Tampa Bay Lightning
Buffalo has been eliminated from playoff contention and Tampa Bay is 6th in the Eastern Conference looking to move up in the standings. Buffalo is “average” versus “average down” on the Team Strength Oscillator and the Lightning have a +22 to +10 edge on the Power Ranking Indicator. The Score Predictor has Tampa Bay by a 4-3 score with 21 percent confidence. The game should be high scoring with the teams trending in games “over” the line. I like Tampa Bay to cruise in this win, winning by two goals in a game “over” the line.
Los Angeles Kings versus Minnesota Wild
Minnesota enters 3rd in the Western Conference and Los Angeles enters 6th. Minnesota has a +28 to +24 edge on the Power Ranking Indicator and “average” versus “average down” on the Team Strength Oscillator. The Kings have been involved in games “over” the line in their last six games. The Score Predictor likes the Wild by a 3-2 score with 32 percent confidence. The Team Volatility Oscillator shows both teams with moderately good stability. I like Minnesota by a goal, perhaps in overtime in a game going “over” the line.
Winnipeg Jets versus Ottawa Senators
Winnipeg still has a slim shot at the playoffs, while Ottawa has been eliminated. The Senators are “burning hot” versus “average down” and the Jets have a +12 to +11 edge on the Power Ranking Indicator. Note that Ottawa has been involved in games “over” the line in each of their last six games. The Team Volatility Oscillator indicates that both teams are consistently performing with regard to their favorite/underdog status. I like Ottawa’s hot play to continue in another high-scoring game going “over” the line.
