The points you earn in October count just the same as the ones you earn in March, but these games are starting to have some serious oomph to them.
We’ve plucked the best of the best from the slate tonight, breaking down three games so you can bet them confidently and let your action do the talking.
Boston is banged-up, but the B’s are still dominating. They welcome the Flyers to TD Garden just 24 hours after Philly got beat up by Pittsburgh.
In Los Angeles, the Kings, who continue to barely hold on to a playoff spot, face Washington, which may have a bit of a goalie controversy on its hands. Finally, we conclude with San Jose and St. Louis, both on four days of rest and in need of a win to keep pace in the wide-open West.
All info as of Wednesday evening. Check back during the day and keep an eye on our Twitter handle for any updates.

Schedule note: The Flyers are on a back-to-back after falling 5-2 at home to Pittsburgh last night. The Bruins had Wednesday off after an overtime victory over Detroit on Tuesday. — Michael Leboff
