The DST NHL Picks of the night is back as we have two games to help you make some money during this stressful time for any hockey fan. Our two games are a massive Metropolitan Division matchup and a West vs East showdown! As always, if you want to support the blog make sure to follow the site on Twitter at DST_Tweets!
Washington Capitals @ New York Rangers - (-110)
Well, I guess we need to start with the news that the Rangers lost out on the Kevin Shattenkirk sweepstakes as the Capitals swooped in to go all in for the Stanley Cup this season. The Capitals now have five great defensemen and Shattenkirk will add to their offensive prowess (and their group of players with shit hair). Of course, he will play tomorrow night at the Garden to make the Ranger fans more depressed about losing out on the player who seems to love New York. The Rangers should still be confident as their King Henrik Lundqvist is 2-0 this season against the caps with a 1.50 GAA and is 7-2-1 this month. After a rough spell, the Rangers look back to their best with Nash, Miller, and Zibanejad firing the puck with amazing passes from defensemen like Ryan McDonagh and Brady Skjei. I think this will be a must watch but I think the Rangers will keep their hot streak going and win.
Colorado Avalanche @ Philadelphia Flyers [-1.5] - (+145)
Both of these teams are having a pretty shit go of it but now that the Flyers can go up against the worst team in the NHL in the Avalanche, they should go into this with high hopes. The Flyers are 8-3-2 at home this season against the Western Conference and 8-3 as the favorite which for a team that has been inconsistent is pretty great. I will keep this short and say the Avs are just too poor at the moment and the Flyers usually play well at home against the West. This should be the easiest pick of the night.
