Today's NHL Picks (06/01/22)

Below you can find picks for today's NHL action from The Stats Zone's top ice hockey tipsters. All times given are based on US start times.

Thursday, January 6th

Minnesota Wild @ Boston Bruins – 7:00pm ET

San Jose Sharks @ Buffalo Sabres – 7:00pm ET

Calgary Flames @ Tampa Bay Lightning – 7:00pm ET

Columbus Blue Jackets @ New Jersey Devils – 7:00pm ET

Pittsburgh Penguins @ Philadelphia Flyers – 7:00pm ET

Florida Panthers @ Dallas Stars – 8:30pm ET

Winnipeg Jets @ Colorado Avalanche – 9:00pm ET

Chicago Blackhawks @ Arizona Coyotes – 9:00pm ET

New York Rangers @ Vegas Golden Knights – 10:00pm ET

Detroit Red Wings @ Anaheim Ducks – 10:00pm ET

Nashville Predators @ Los Angeles Kings – 10:30pm ET

Minnesota Wild @ Boston Bruins – 7:00pm ET

These two teams are trending in opposite directions and it could be evident in this matchup. Boston Bruins have won all three games since their raft of postponed games while Minnesota Wild have now lost their last five. The Wild’s defensive woes are evident having allowed at least six goals in three of those five losses and having also lost the past six matchups between the two teams, the road team have it all to do to avoid yet another defeat in this one.

Prediction: Boston Bruins to win

Columbus Blue Jackets @ New Jersey Devils – 7:00pm ET

New Jersey Devils and Columbus Blue Jackets have both been involved in numerous high-scoring clashes of late and that trend is fancied to continue here. All ten of the Devils’ last ten matchups have produced at least five goals while the same can be said of the last six games for the Blue Jackets so expect that total to be surpassed again in this one.

Prediction: Over 4.5 total goals

Pittsburgh Penguins @ Philadelphia Flyers – 7:00pm ET

Pittsburgh Penguins have been able to carry on where they left off after their COVID-19 enforced break and their winning streak now stands at eight games. Four of those successes have occurred on the road and now facing a Philadelphia Flyers team with three straight losses to their name, the Penguins are favoured to continue their excellent run of form.

Prediction: Pittsburgh Penguins to win
