NHL odds, schedule, picks: March 20
New York Islanders @ Philadelphia Flyers, 2 p.m. ET
- Islanders last 10: 6-3-1
- Islanders ATS: 26-32
- Flyers last 10: 4-5-1
- Flyers ATS: 29-31
Top pick: Anders Lee any-time goal scorer (+115)- The Islanders captain has been scorching hot as of late with nine goals in his last seven games, including his first-career hat trick on March 10 against the Columbus Blue Jackets. He has goals in six of his last seven outings — finally showing the scoring form that made him a 40-goal man earlier in his career.
Dallas Stars @ Washington Capitals, 5 p.m.
- Stars last 10: 5-4-1
- Stars ATS: 25-32
- Capitals last 10: 7-2-1
- Capitals ATS: 34-26
Top pick: Alex Ovechkin any-time goal scorer (-125)- With his next goal, Ovechkin will hit the 40-goal mark for the 12th time in his career. He is certainly in the sort of form to hit that mark Sunday with goals in each of his last three games. He also has 10 goals in his last 13 games.

New York Rangers @ Carolina Hurricanes
- Rangers last 10: 6-4-0
- Rangers ATS: 23-36
- Hurricanes last 10: 5-4-1
- Hurricanes ATS: 24-32
Top pick: Hurricanes over 3.5 goals (-115)- The Hurricanes have struggled to score consistently over their last 10 games. In fact, they haven’t scored more than three goals in any game during that stretch. But they face the Rangers’ backup goalie in Alexandar Georgiev, who has an .892 SV% and 3.14 GAA this season. It’s a golden opportunity for Carolina’s offense to break out a bit.
Winnipeg Jets @ Chicago Blackhawks, 7 p.m.
- Jets last 10: 6-3-1
- Jets ATS: 31-26
- Blackhawks last 10: 4-5-1
- Blackhawks ATS: 29-26
Top pick: Combined score over 6 goals (-105)- If anything, these two teams can score — and they’ve been doing just that over their last 10 games. The Jets have averaged 4.1 goals per game during that stretch while the Blackhawks are putting up 3.7 tallies per night. Simple math suggests that they’ll hit the over.
Arizona Coyotes @ San Jose Sharks, 7 p.m.
- Coyotes last 10: 7-3-0
- Coyotes ATS: 28-30
- Sharks last 10: 3-5-2
- Sharks ATS: 23-37
Top pick: Coyotes to win (+160)- It’s hard to believe that we’re backing one of the worst teams in hockey, but the Coyotes have been on a tear lately with seven wins in 10. Nick Schmaltz (7G, 10A) and Clayton Keller (6G, 9A) have been unstoppable, combining for 32 points over Arizona’s last eight games.
Buffalo Sabres @ Vancouver Canucks, 10 p.m.
- Sabres last 10: 5-5-0
- Sabres ATS: 28-28
- Canucks last 10: 5-4-1
- Canucks ATS: 30-30
Top pick: Kyle Okposo anytime scorer (+350)- Okposo is tied for the Sabres’ lead this month with five points (2G, 3A) in eight games and posted a goal and an assist already this season against the Canucks.
