Carolina Hurricanes at Montreal Canadiens (-140, 5.5)

The Montreal Canadiens and Carolina Hurricanes will both be trying for their fourth straight victory when they meet in Montreal on Monday. The Hurricanes have won each of their last three games by a two-goal margin, while the Canadiens defeated Tampa Bay 4-3 in a shootout and Florida 1-0 in overtime before posting a 4-1 home win over Philadelphia on Saturday. Backup goaltender Peter Budaj made 18 saves in that game for his first victory of the season. Montreal forward Rene Bourque has goals in his last two games, scoring the overtime winner against Florida and adding a late goal on Saturday.

Hurricanes forward Jiri Tlusty has four goals in the last three games, while captain Eric Staal is riding a 10-game point streak during which he has all of his team-leading 17 points this season. Staal has a goal and four assists in the winning streak. Starting goaltender Cam Ward is 4-0-1 in his last five starts with a .927 save percentage after starting the season 1-3-1. Carolina defenseman Joe Corvo has responded to being a healthy scratch for three games with two goals and four assists in his last five games. Corvo had a goal and an assist in a 3-1 win over Toronto on Thursday.

ABOUT THE HURRICANES (8-4-1): Jeff Skinner leads the team with five power-play points and 57 shots. Skinner is second behind Staal with 14 points thus far. Carolina was 4-1-1 on a recent six-game road trip to improve its away record to 5-2-1 this season. Jordan Staal leads the team with 10 assists and is tied with defenseman Tim Gleason for the team lead with 24 hits. Carolina is 3-for-8 with the man advantage in its last two games.

NHL Afternoon Action: President's Day Betting Previews
By Covers.com

Ottawa Senators at New Jersey Devils (-190, 5)

After struggling mightily in their first game without Erik Karlsson, the Ottawa Senators will look for a better performance on Monday afternoon when they visit the New Jersey Devils. Ottawa suffered its second straight loss and sixth in eight outings following a 3-0 setback to provincial rival Toronto on Saturday. Craig Anderson turned aside 28 shots as the Senators dealt with the absence of the reigning Norris Trophy winner, who is lost for the season after severing his left Achilles tendon versus Pittsburgh on Wednesday.

New Jersey suffered its second defeat in three games as John Tavares recorded his fourth career hat trick to propel the New York Islanders to a convincing 5-1 decision on Saturday. Ilya Kovalchuk extended his point streak to six games with an assist - which was his 800th career point. The Devils won three of the four meetings last season, with Kovalchuk netting a pair of goals in the finale on April 7.


KEY BETTING TRENDS:


Senators are 11-3 in their last 14 games following a loss of 3 or more goals
Senators are 0-5 in their last 5 road games.
Senators are 0-4 in their last 4 vs. Atlantic.
Senators are 1-8 in the last 9 meetings in New Jersey
Devils are 7-0 in their last 7 games following a loss of 3 or more goals
Devils are 1-7 in their last 8 Monday games
Devils are 6-1 in their last 7 in the third game of a 3-in-4 situation
Under is 8-1-3 in Devils last 12 following a loss of 3 or more goals

ABOUT THE SENATORS (7-6-2): Coach Paul McLean's club has been sizzling in Canada's capital - and has struggled everywhere else. Ottawa is just 2-5-0 on the road this season and faces a team which has collected 13 of a possible 16 points at home (6-1-1). MacLean noted that Ben Bishop will get the start in goal on Monday. Despite the Senators' woes, captain Daniel Alfredsson kept a positive outlook. "We played a pretty solid road game," Alfredsson said after the team's loss to Toronto. "They get their bounces on their two bounces and we can't find ours. Overall, the new guys came in and the whole team played a solid road game and gave us a chance to win."

ABOUT THE DEVILS (9-3-3): Johan Hedberg gave Martin Brodeur a day off on Saturday, but the latter is expected to be back in net against the Senators. Brodeur split a pair of decisions versus Ottawa last season. Patrik Elias has collected two goals and nine assists in his last seven contests. Elias leads the club with 15 helpers while David Clarkson has a team-best 10 goals. Clarkson, however, has tallied twice in 17 career contests against the Senators.

OVERTIME

1. Devils D Marek Zidlicky had the lone goal on Saturday for the Devils. It was his first since a 4-2 triumph over Philadelphia in Game 4 of the second round of the playoffs.

2. After leaving the Garden State, Ottawa will open a four-game homestand versus the Islanders.

3. Kovalchuk has three goals and seven assists on his point streak.


Philadelphia Flyers at New York Islanders (-105, 5.5)

John Tavares is fast becoming one of the NHL’s elite offensive players as he attempts to lift the New York Islanders into the playoffs for the first time since the 2006-07 season. Tavares takes a five-game, goal-scoring streak into a matinee against the visiting Philadelphia Flyers on Monday. The fourth-year center has 11 goals in the last 10 games, highlighted by his fourth career hat trick in the 5-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Saturday. Tavares and linemate Matt Moulson have combined for 18 of the 44 goals for New York, which has won two straight after a five-game skid.

The Flyers appeared to be turning things around earlier this month, but have dropped three of their last four games - including a listless 4-1 loss at Montreal on Saturday. Philadelphia will need to find some consistency on offense and get its power play going to climb in the standings.

KEY BETTING TRENDS:

Flyers are 3-7 in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest
Flyers are 1-6 in their last 7 road games.
Flyers are 1-8 in their last 9 vs. Atlantic.
Islanders are 4-1 in their last 5 after allowing 2 goals or less in their previous game
Under is 4-0 in Flyers last 4 vs. a team with a losing record
Under is 5-1 in Flyers last 6 vs. Atlantic
Over is 11-1-1 in Islanders last 13 after allowing 2 goals or less in their previous game
Over is 8-3 in Islanders last 11 vs. a team with a winning % below .400
Under is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in New York
Road team is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings

ABOUT THE FLYERS (6-9-1): Philadelphia generated only 19 shots on goal against the Canadiens and is averaging 23.3 the last three games. Captain Claude Giroux and defenseman Kimmo Timonen both told reporters that the team was “going through the motions,” and needed to compete at a higher level after Saturday’s game. It doesn’t help that the Flyers are 2-for-21 on the power play in the last seven games. Giroux has only three goals and is a minus-6 through one-third of the season. Jakub Voracek and Brayden Schenn share the team lead in scoring with 11 points. On the bright side, the Flyers have killed 33 of 35 power plays in February.

ABOUT THE ISLANDERS (6-7-1): The Islanders have suddenly caught fire on the power play. They have converted seven of their last 12 opportunities with the man advantage. Tavares has five goals and half of his 20 points on the power play and Moulson has four of his seven goals when the Islanders have the extra man. New York would like to get more from forwards Frans Nielsen and Kyle Okposo, who have each recorded only one goal. Goalie Evgeni Nabokov (6-5-1) has stopped 66 of 70 shots the last two games to raise his save percentage to .906.

OVERTIME

1. The Islanders were sixth in the NHL in scoring (3.14) through Saturday, while the Flyers stood 24th (2.38).

2. Philadelphia G Ilya Bryzgalov is expected to play his 400th NHL game.

3. D Lubomir Visnovsky has four assists and is a plus-2 since joining the Islanders.
