Thursday NHL: Peterson picks Boston Bruins vs Washington Capitals & Philadelphia Flyers vs New York Islanders
Boston Bruins (+112) @ Washington Capitals (-132), 7 pm EDT
Despite falling short to the New York Islanders 1-0 Tuesday night, the Washington Capitals still sit at the top of the East alongside the Islanders.
7-3 in their last ten, Washington will look to get back on track Thursday night against the Boston Bruins. Boston defeated Philadelphia 4-2 Tuesday night, but one concerning statistic stands out: They have only been able to string together consecutive wins once in their last ten attempts. Take Washington on the Moneyline here.
PICK: Washington Capitals Moneyline (-132)
Philadelphia Flyers (+152) @ New York Islanders (-180), 7 pm EDT
The New York Islanders have won three in a row and will look to make it four against a tough, but inconsistent Philadelphia Flyers club Thursday night. Sitting alongside the Washington Capitals at the top of the East, the Islanders will have their hands full as all but five out of the six games between these two this season have been one goal games. On home ice, the Islanders have been lights out, going 16-1-2 on the season. Instead of investing in the -180 Islanders Moneyline at a steep price, lean on the over here as the Islanders know how to score and the Flyers continue to have issues keeping pucks out of their net.
PICK: Over 5.5 (-114)
