Take a look at the NHL's advanced stats and it's easy to see why the Bruins are on a run. The top three forwards in Corsi ratings are Patrice Bergeron (61.72) Brad Marchand (60.75) and David Pastrnak (57.92), while Colin Miller (59.25) and Torey Krug (58.14) are 2-3 among defensemen. 

Marchand, who has reached the 70-point milestone for the first time in his career (32-38-70), paces the NHL with 22 goals and 39 points in 28 games dating to Jan. 1.

Playing a more up-tempo game, Boston have scored six goals three times in 12 games under coach Bruce Cassidy after doing it only once in 55 games under Claude Julien.

Flyers forwards Wayne Simmonds and Brayden Schenn share the NHL lead in power play goals with 14 apiece. Simmonds has scored 73 power play goals since 2011, second only to Washington's Alex Ovechkin over that span. The Flyers are 3-1-1 in their last five games.

 Pick: The Bruins (-205) and the over (5.5)

Calgary Flames (+104) at Winnipeg Jets (-115)

jetsBringing an end to Montreal's six-game winning streak via a resounding 5-0 shutout verdict on Thursday, the Flames are officially the NHL's hottest team, winners of eight in a row. It was the seventh consecutive game that Calgary had allowed two or fewer goals. Flames forward Sean Monahan has posted 3-7-10 totals during their winning streak. 

Flames forward Johnny Gaudreau (1-3-4) registered his second four-point game of the season, while teammate T.J. Brodie (0-1-1) extended his point streak to five games (2-4—6).

Wrapping up a six-game homestand, the Jets have lost the last two games and are now 2-3. Winnipeg is 5-7-2 in its last 14 games. Jets rookie Patrik Laine leads all NHL forwards in five-on-five shooting percentage at 13.3 per cent.

Pick: The Flames (+104) and the over (5.5)

Washington Capitals (-115) at Los Angeles Kings (+104)

Trade deadline acquisition Jarome Iginla netted two goals, including the overtime winner, as the Kings edged Nashville 3-2 on Thursday. Kings forward Dustin Brown is two points away from 500 for his NHL career. Kings defenseman Drew Doughty is second in the NHL in offensive zone starts with 479. The Kings are 3-1-2 in their last six games.

The NHL-leading Capitals have lost two in a row in regulation for the first time since Nov. 26-Dec. 1 and surrendered four goals in consecutive games for the first time since Oct. 22-26.

Pick: The Capitals (-115) and the under (5)

New York Islanders (+109) at St. Louis Blues (-120)

The Islanders complete their season-long nine-game road trip, which shows an impressive 5-2-1 slate thus far, especially considering that they were 6-13-4 away from home prior to this stretch.

In Thursday's 4-3 win at Vancouver, the Isles squandered the lead in the final 20 seconds of regulation, but Andrew Ladd scored in overtime.

The Islanders hold the final Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference. The Islanders line of Anders Lee (10-10-20), John Tavares (9-16-25) and Josh Bailey (6-14-30) have combined for 65 points (25-40-65) with four game winning goals in 23 games under coach Doug Weight.

Entering Friday's game against Anaheim, the Blues had won two straight, allowing just one goal in the process. St. Louis was four-for-12 on the power play over the past five games. Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko has scored six game winning goals this season.

Pick: The Blues (-120) and the under (5)
