Minnesota at Boston
TVA at 7:00 pm ET

Although last place in the Central Division as of Nov. 4, Minnesota beat Boston the last time they faced the Bruins. That game took place way back on Nov. 17, 2016. Does the game even matter? Not really. What does matter in this battle is that Boston is 4-2-2 at home while Minnesota is 2-2-0-1 on the road.  I think Minnesota pulls off the upset just because they should offer terrific odds.

Washington at Buffalo
NBCSN at 7:00 pm ET

At 7-6-1, the Washington Capitals are so far keeping pace in the Metropolitan Division. The Caps went through some changes this past off-season. They’re still a decent team, though. Should Washington beat the Sabres on the road this Tuesday? I think they should. Buffalo is only 1-3-0-1 at home this season. I’ll side with the Caps.

Edmonton at NY Islanders
TVA at 7:00 pm ET

Edmonton’s 1-2-1 road record won’t help the Oilers take down the New York Islanders on Tuesday night. Neither will the fact that the Islanders are 4-0-0-1 straight up at home this season. The Islanders take it.

Los Angeles at Anaheim
NBCSN at 10:00 pm ET

Tuesday is a terrific rivalry game between two of the better teams in the Pacific Division. Anaheim is 6-6-1-1. The last time the Ducks battled the Kings, they beat them 4 to 3 in overtime. That was last season, though. The L.A. Kings are an awesome 10-2-2 straight up overall this season. The Kings beat the Ducks on Tuesday night.

Minnesota at Toronto
TSN at 7:30 pm ET

Minnesota travels to Toronto to take on the Maple Leafs on Wednesday, Nov. 8. The Leafs have played well at home this season. It’s difficult to see Minnesota beating a Toronto squad with only a day of rest after battling Boston in Boston.

Boston at NY Rangers
NBCSN at 8:00 pm ET

The New York Rangers have won 3 straight as of Nov. 4. That’s impressive. Considering the Rangers were a mess earlier this season, winning 3 in a row is an excellent sign that they’ve gotten it together. NYR is a good enough play on the puck line to put a beat down on the Boston Bruins this Wednesday.

Tampa Bay at San Jose
NBCSN at 10:30 pm ET

Tampa Bay doesn’t start their week until this road game versus the San Jose Sharks on Nov. 8. The Lightning are 4-1-0-1 on the money line in road games this season. Because Tampa Bay should arrive in San Jose fresh, they’ll be tough for the Sharks to beat. I like the Lightning to get it done.

Chicago at Philadelphia
TVA at 7:00 pm ET

Philly’s last game was on Nov. 4. They lost 4 to 5 in a shootout. Chicago on Nov. 9 is the Flyers’ next battle.  Could Chicago take down Philly on the road? Maybe. More than likely, though, the 4 days off allows Philly to put a beat down on the Blackhawks.

Tampa Bay at Los Angeles
TSN at 10:30 pm ET

The top game this week happens on Thursday night when Tampa Bay battles the L.A. Kings. It’s early, but Tampa versus L.A. might be a preview of the 2018 Stanley Cup. That’s how well both teams have started this season. L.A. should be favored. That’s why I like Tampa Bay. At this point, I’m not sure which team is better. I’ll take the kinder odds.

Pittsburgh at Washington
TSN at 7:00 pm ET

One of the best rivalries the past couple of seasons happens, again, on Nov. 10 when Pittsburgh travels to take on the Capitals in Washington D.C. These two battled on Oct. 11. Pitt beat the Caps 3 to 2. What’s going to change on Friday? Nothing.

Sunday, Nov. 12, 2017

Edmonton at Washington
TSN at 10:00 pm ET

Washington’s game versus Edmonton should be a decent match. On Oct. 28, Washington pummeled Edmonton 5 to 2. Just like the Caps game versus the Pens, should anything change in the Caps game versus the Edmonton Oilers on Nov. 12? Nope.
