It is a packed night in the NHL, as eleven games are slated to take place Tuesday. We have gone over the evening's card and hand picked three matchups that could be the key to a successful night of NHL betting.

It was a very good day for our NHL Picks of the Day on Monday as we went a perfect 2-0. The Winnipeg Jets were a 5-1 winner over the Phoenix Coyotes 5-1 to go over the total of 5.5, and later in the evening the Los Angeles Kings were a 1-0 winner versus the Vancouver Canucks to easily go under the total of 5.0. If you’ve been following my NHL preview articles then you would know that using NHL betting systems is a key part of my handicapping arsenal when making my free selections. It will be no different today as I have 3 NHL picks, and each will be backed with two separate NHL betting systems.
