There are several teams in the midst of hot streaks right now in the NHL. Currently, 13 of the league’s teams have won at least six of their last 10 games, and 12 of those teams earned a point in one of their losses. The standings in the NHL are always fluid, but things are getting especially wonky as we head toward the All-Star Break.
Two hot teams in particular, the Colorado Avalanche and Calgary Flames, deserve our attention. Both Calgary and Colorado have won seven games in a row and have put themselves in position to battle for a playoff spot over the next three months. But is it worth putting a futures wager on either team to win the Stanley Cup?
