Pick: Blackhawks

They’re up 6-3. Bruins don’t look very good and the Panarin-Anisimov-Kane line is lighting it up.

Our pick: Philadelphia Flyers

The Flyers want this game. They’re going to come out hungry, needing to secure more of a sufficient lead on the Bruins for the second wild card spot. They’ll be hungrier for this win, rather than the already clinched Pittsburgh Penguins.

Our pick: St. Louis Blues

The Blues have been a solid team this season. The Avalanche have struggled, with injuries and lack of defense poisoning their season.

Our pick: Minnesota Wild

The Wild can clinch today, they know that. They are going to come out strong tonight, although the Jets may try to play spoiler.

Our pick: Dallas Stars

The Stars are trying to clinch a Central Division title, and the Ducks have a lot of significant players lost to injury right now.
