Boston Bruins @ New York Rangers – 7:00 PM ET
The Bruins enter this contest red-hot. They defeated the Rangers on Wednesday in overtime, 3-2, making them 8-0-1 in their last nine games. They have won their last four. Boston is 9-1-2 overall, tops in the East Division.
They have scored 39 goals while allowing 26, giving them a +13 goal differential, best in the division. The combination of Jaroslav Halak (1.72, .923) and Tuukka Rask (2.31, .906) has been fantastic.

This is quickly shaping into the best goaltending tandem in the league. The Bruins have two players who are tied for the team lead in scoring. Brad Marchand (8 G, 8 A) and Patrice Bergeron (6 G, 10 A) each have 16 points.
The Rangers loss moves them to 4-5-3. They are sixth in the division, scoring 31 goals while allowing 33. New York looked like they had things going as they were 3-0-1 over a four-game stretch that ended on February 4.
However, a shutout loss to the Islanders on Monday was followed by the overtime loss to Boston on Wednesday. This team is finding it hard to get some sort of rhythm going.
Goaltending has been solid thanks to Igor Shesterkin who has a 2.31 GAA and a .916 save percentage. Artemi Panarin leads the team in scoring with five goals, 10 assists, and 15 points, but he is the only Rangers player with more than nine points.
NHL Pick – Boston Bruins (-161)
Spread Pick – Boston Bruins -1.5 (+347)
Total Goals Pick – Under 5.5 (+100)
St. Louis Blues @ Arizona Coyotes – 9:00 PM ET
After both of their contests against Minnesota Wild were postponed this week, the St. Louis Blues travel to take on the Arizona Coyotes on Friday. This will be the fifth straight time these teams have played each other.
Arizona defeated St. Louis in a shootout on Monday, 4-3 making the Blues 1-2-1 in the first four games. St. Louis is 7-4-2 overall, second in the West Division. They have scored 43 goals while allowing 43.
Jordan Binnington has seen the majority of the work, starting 10 of the teams 13 games. He has a 2.64 GAA and a .913 save percentage. With these teams playing each other on Saturday and Monday as well, Binnington will likely be between the pipes on Friday and Monday. Four players have at least 11 points led by David Perron with 13.
Arizona had both of their contests against Colorado postponed. They are on a three-game winning streak thanks to their three straight victories over St. Louis. Arizona is now 6-5-1, fourth in the division.
They have scored 34 goals while giving up 33. The Coyotes are 3-2-1 at home this season. Arizona has been getting solid goaltending out of Darcy Kuemper, who has a 2.50 GAA and a .913 save percentage.
Antti Raanta (3.00, .922) recently joined the team and will likely go on Saturday. The Coyotes have two players who lead the team in scoring. Christian Dvorak (7 G, 6 A) and Conor Garland (5 G, 8 A) each have 13 points.
