Ice picks: Monday's best NHL bets

Buffalo Sabres at Tampa Bay Lightning (-105, 5.5) odds provided by logans

The Buffalo Sabres will have to do something they’ve not done all season Monday to improve their position in the playoff chase. They must beat the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Sabres are 0-3 against the Lightning, including a shutout at Tampa Bay in October. Buffalo is 9-2-4 over the last month to pull within two points of eighth place in the Eastern Conference. Tampa Bay has dropped five of its last six games.

The Sabres lost their second straight game in a shootout Saturday at Florida, falling to 7-6 in the tiebreaker. Goalie Ryan Miller has only lost once in regulation since Feb. 14. Miller is 17-7 lifetime against the Lightning, despite being 0-3 with a .895 save percentage this season.

The Sabres need this one to keep pace in the East’s playoff race.

Pick: Sabres

New Jersey Devils at New York Rangers (-150, 5) odds provided by logans

The New York Rangers were threatening to run away with the top seed in the Eastern Conference only to drop five of their last seven contests. The Rangers' troubles have opened the door for the three contending Atlantic Division teams to close in on them.

On Monday, the New Jersey Devils will look to improve their postseason standing at New York's expense when they meet at Madison Square Garden.
New Jersey began New York's troubles with a 4-1 victory on March 6, but the Devils have their own issues to address. Despite sitting comfortably as the conference's sixth seed, New Jersey has seen its offense go south.

The Devils mustered just 14 shots in their 5-2 loss to Pittsburgh on Saturday - and that effort came on the heels of a pair goalless performances.

Pick: Under

Overall that was a wicked fun weekend but unfortunately it tailed off near the end. I started slow on my CBB plays on Sunday but then hit a nice stretch of 5 plays all between 2 to 2.5 units to get up on the day. Then I had Purdue ML to the U 142 at +685 and all was looking good with SPOILERMAKERS up 11. But the lead continually got smaller and smaller and then with about 10 seconds to go Purd-Douche hacks up the ball and KAN takes it in for the winning dunk with a couple tics left in the game and squashed that fatass parlay........................................................................................................................................ The pucks weren't very fun either as 3 of the worst teams in all of hockey pissed all over my card. The F'ing-LAMES loss to the BlowJackoffs. PHX can't beat the lowly OIL in regulation and then the topper,the JEDS loss to the bottom feeding CANES. Just a brutal night on the ice. Bad enough to lose but when it's the absolute 2 worst teams in the league and and one of the worst in the East,especially on the road against a strong home team it's about as fuck-strating as it gets

Yesterday I lost 1.35 units on the Penguins with that crazy last second shot with 1 second left in Overtime...Shoot, I would rather lose a game 5-1 then by a last second shot in Overtime........I now have lost 4 bets in a row and my record is now 119-110 for +3.73 units this season in hockey......my leans are the Devils and Sabres tonight, BUT a few things are keeping me off of those bets, so I will take the day off and wait for Tuesday, where I like 3 home team favorites = Colorado, Dallas and L.A.......good luck to those wagering tonight!
