Battles at the top and bottom of the standings highlight the NHL slate  

March 13, 2022

Canadiens at Flyers 

Wells Fargo Center – Philadelphia, PA 
7:00 PM ET 
Philadelphia -145 

It’s a battle of cellar dwellers in Philly, but the trends are hard to ignore. Montreal is 7-3 in its last 10 games, including an impressive win over Calgary. Meanwhile, Philadelphia is reeling, going just 3-10 in its last 13 outings. Thus, the value is with the Canadiens tonight. 

Norm LaChatlier’s pick: Montreal M/L (+130)  

Flames at Avalanche 

Ball Arena – Denver, CO 
8:00 PM ET 
Colorado -175 

The top two teams in the West square off tonight in Colorado. But each is heading in a different direction. Calgary has gone 16-3 in their last 19 games, shooting up the standings. Meanwhile, Colorado is 1-3-1 in its last five games, including an overtime loss to the Flames last Saturday. Without Gabe Landeskog, the Avalanche won’t right the ship. 

Norm LaChatlier’s pick: Calgary M/L (+150)
