We've got your Tuesday NHL picks for you right here! Find out where we've decided to place our money for this game packed night.

After just two games on Monday night, we’ve got a full slate with eight games on Tuesday. We’ve got three previews and picks for you 
below as well as a full preview of the Dallas-Boston contest in an individual article.

St. Louis Blues vs. Montreal Canadiens

The Blues are worth adding to your sports picks on Tuesday night as they’re a road underdog in Montreal. They are 8-2-2 on the season compared to the Habs, who are 8-7-0, so you are getting the better team as an underdog. Sure, the Habs have home-ice advantage but they are just 4-4-0 at home this year while the Blues are 3-1-1 on the road. The Blues have won three straight in this series and are 4-0-1 in the last five. Take them in this spot.

Calgary Flames vs. Minnesota Wild

Josh Harding has been playing out of his mind for the Wild, so the under is probably worth a look in this one. Harding leads the NHL in goals-against average (1.10) and save percentage (.950), and he’ll be going up against a Flames offense that’s cooled off quite a bit since the start of the season. They averaged 3.28 goals per game in their first seven but have dropped down to 2.71 per game in their last seven. Against a red-hot goaltender like Harding, they should have a tough time scoring. With the NHL odds showing a 5.5 on the total, add the under to your NHL picks.

New York Islanders vs. Washington Capitals

Although the Caps expect Alex Ovechkin back on Tuesday, I still like the Isles as a road dog. They are 3-2-0 away this season and the Caps are just 4-3-0 at home. The home-ice advantage could be minimal.

The Isles have won two of the last three meetings between the teams and are fairly comfortable in this series. Take a shot with them on Tuesday.
