There are only three games on the NHL card for Wednesday night, but there’s drama everywhere you turn.
Not only will the Bruins (-215) and Canadiens (+180) renew their century-old rivalry on national TV, but the Vancouver Canucks (-145) will honor two of the franchise’s most iconic heroes — Daniel and Henrik Sedin — before a showdown with the Chicago Blackhawks (+125).
Let’s jump in.

Montreal Canadiens vs. Boston Bruins
- Canadiens odds: +180
- Bruins odds: -215
- Over/Under: 5.5
- Time: 7:30 p.m. ET
- TV: NBCSN
The Montreal Canadiens are the type of team I love to bet on. The Habs are almost certainly going to miss the playoffs, but they’ve had strong 5-on-5 metrics the entire season. Some better injury luck and a stronger season from their goalies and the Canadiens would be right in the hunt in the Eastern Conference.
Only two teams this season — Vegas and Tampa Bay — have a better expected goals rate than Montreal’s 53.6% xG share. The Habs have been in good form lately, too.
