It’s a busy night in the NHL and there are a couple of Western Conference games I think are worth a look from a value perspective. Let’s start in Denver.
Minnesota Wild -177 at Colorado Avalanche
The Wild have been free-falling for so long that I think people are starting to forget that they’re a pretty good team. Up against the league’s worst goal differential team and desperate to get things sorted out ahead of the playoffs next week, this looks like a good spot for them.
Vancouver Canucks at Arizona Coyotes +105
In a match-up of two low-talent teams playing out the string with similar goaltenders, I can’t quite figure out why the Desert Dogs are dogs in this spot.
