Every week, we update you on who's hot, who's not and situational betting spots in the National Hockey League.

For the week of March 10-16

Hot team

Boston Bruins (3-0 S/U)


Remember these guys? They've been the best team in the NHL for the entire month of March, reeling off eight consecutive victories to launch themselves to the top of the Eastern Conference Standings. The offense is rolling along - scoring 11 goals in last week's victories over Montreal, Phoenix and Carolina - while the defense and goaltending limited the Canadiens, Coyotes and Hurricanes to just one goal apiece.

Cold team

Ottawa Senators (0-3 S/U)


Things are getting bleak in the Canadian capital after the Senators lost ground in the crowded Eastern Conference playoff race with a fruitless 0-1-2 week. Ottawa opened the stretch with a 4-3 overtime loss to the Nashville Predators, then dropped a 5-4 overtime decision to the Canadiens before capping the week with a 3-1 setback to the Colorado Avalanche. Home games against the New York Rangers and Tampa Bay could spell trouble this week.

Best Over play

San Jose Sharks (3-1 O/U)


The Sharks have injected themselves back into the conversation for top seed in the Western Conference thanks to an impressive six-game winning streak that has included three consecutive road victories over Eastern Conference foes. San Jose racked up the goals in their first three games - routing Toronto 6-2 before posting back-to-back 4-3 victories over Columbus and the New York Islanders - before turning on the defense en route to a 1-0 triumph over the Rangers.

Best Under play

Detroit Red Wings (0-3 O/U)


Being without forwards Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg has started to wear on the Red Wings, who have scored just three regulation goals in their past four games - making them an attractive Under play moving forward. Detroit opened the week with a 4-1 setback in Columbus before registering a 2-1 shootout win over Edmonton and concluding the stretch with a 4-1 loss in Chicago. The Wings have gone under the total in five of their last six games overall.

Surveying the schedule

The St. Louis Blues have a leg up in the race for first place in the West, but face a difficult week as they look to strengthen their hold on the No. 1 spot. The Blues entertain the Winnipeg Jets on Monday night before embarking on a pivotal four-game trip beginning Wednesday against the defending-champion Blackhawks. St. Louis wraps up a busy week with a weekend double-dip in Pennsylvania, facing the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday and the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday.
