Around the rink: Monday's NHL betting notes

Check out our quick-hitting betting notes on Monday’s NHL action:

Carolina Hurricanes at Boston Bruins (-220, 5.5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Justin Peters (CAR), Tuukka Rask (BOS)

Boston has earned points in eight consecutive games at TD Garden (7-0-1) and has lost in regulation at home just once since Jan. 31. Carolina has gone from first place in the Southeast in mid-March to 13th overall in the Eastern Conference thanks to a 1-10-1 stretch. The Hurricanes' current losing streak reached four games with Saturday's 4-1 setback against the New York Rangers. Boston posted a 5-3 victory in the first meeting of the season on Jan. 28 after being swept of the four-game series in 2011-12. The under is 7-1 in the Hurricanes’ last eight road games.

New York Rangers at Toronto Maple Leafs (-102, 5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Henrik Lundqvist (NYR), James Reimer (TOR)

The Rangers, who defeated Toronto 5-2 at New York on Jan. 26, have points in their last four games (3-0-1) and look dangerous after shuffling their roster at the trade deadline. Henrik Lundqvist stopped a season-high 48 shots for the Rangers on Saturday in a 4-1 road victory at Carolina. Lundqvist has held opponents to one goal in each of his last three starts, while New York recorded 11 goals in that span - four of them from players acquired in deadline deals. The Rangers are 5-0-2 in their last seven games at Air Canada Centre. Toronto has not defeated New York in regulation at home since Nov. 1, 2008.

Calgary Flames at Colorado Avalanche (-144, 5.5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Joey MacDonald (CGY), Semyon Varlamov (COL)

The Flames will attempt to halt their five-game losing streak on Monday when they visit the Avalanche, who are winless in four straight and have one victory in their last nine contests (1-7-1). Calgary is being outscored 25-10 on its five-game skid and its only win in the last seven games came against Colorado, which it defeated 4-3 at home on March 27. The under is 5-0-1 in the Avalanche’s last six overall.

Phoenix Coyotes at Vancouver Canucks (-154, 5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Mike Smith (PHX), Cory Schneider (VAN)

The Coyotes defeated the Canucks at Vancouver 4-2 on Feb. 26, but lost 2-1 at home when the Canucks visited on March 21. Vancouver has won its last five home games - raising its record at Rogers Arena to 12-5-3. Phoenix began April with three wins at home and has points in its last six games (4-0-2) despite health issues with its goaltending. Mike Smith missed six games with an upper-body injury but returned on Saturday to blank Colorado with 24 saves. Vancouver F Ryan Kesler (foot) will play. The under is 8-1-2 in the Canucks’ last 11 overall.

Edmonton Oilers at Anaheim Ducks (-151, 5.5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Devan Dubnyk (EDM), Jonas Hiller (ANA)

Edmonton has lost two straight following a five-game winning streak, scoring a total of one goal while allowing eight. Anaheim and Edmonton are meeting for the first time this season. They will face off twice in Edmonton on April 21-22. The road team has won six of the last eight games in the all-time series, while the Ducks have captured six of the last seven. The under is 6-1-1 in the last eight clashes.
