We are coming off another win with our NHL Parlay Picks on Saturday. The Philadelphia Flyers were able to stay within the puck line against the Carolina Hurricanes and nearly beat the Metropolitan Division leaders in overtime. Meanwhile, the Toronto Maple Leafs blew a late lead against the Ottawa Senators that resulted in extra hockey after Brady Tkachuk notched a power play goal with 11 seconds left. Fortunately, the Maple Leafs emerged victorious in the shootout to result in a parlay win and a little extra cash in my wallet.
There isn’t much time left in the NHL regular season. The action will stop on April 13, so we have just three weeks remaining before the playoffs start. Each game now takes on increasing importance, so let’s dig into the action.

NHL Parlay Picks for Thursday, March 23, 2023
Washington Capitals -1.5 vs. Chicago Blackhawks
Over in Pittsburgh/Dallas
The Washington Capitals can’t afford many more losses if they are going to make it back to the postseason. Washington has made it to the playoffs for eight straight years and 14 of the last 15 seasons, but this is the worst Capitals’ team we have seen in a while. They are six points behind the Florida Panthers for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, and they have competition as the Pittsburgh Penguins are five points in front of them, and Ottawa and Buffalo are right with them.
With that in mind, Washington can’t drop points against one of the worst teams in the league. Chicago no longer has a great scoring threat with Patrick Kane now in the Big Apple, as Jonathan Toews has missed the last two months with long haul COVID. Max Domi was dealt to Dallas before the trade deadline too, so only two players on Chicago’s current roster have more than 10 goals with the team. The Blackhawks are 3-9 in their last 12 games.
If you’re a fan of scoring, you’ve loved watching the Dallas Stars in recent weeks. There have been a whopping 92 goals scored in their last 11 games, and they have played 14 straight games with at least five goals. While Dallas’ defense has collapsed and goaltender Jake Oettinger has had real trouble over the last three weeks, the Stars have been fantastic on offense. Although Oettinger is 6-2 in the month of March, he has a 3.34 GAA and an .895 save percentage. Fortunately, Jason Robertson has 41 goals, Jamie Benn has 29 goals, and Roope Hintz has 32 goals to lead the Stars.
Pittsburgh is starting to fall apart at the worst possible time. The Penguins have lost four straight games, and they are now on the outside looking in at the playoff picture. They will go on the road to face the Colorado Avalanche on Wednesday, and there might be some fatigue in a mediocre defense that has to head to the Metroplex the next day. The Pens do have some talented scorers and a solid power play, so this game could easily have seven or more goals.
