It's another big night for those doing NHL betting on Friday, be it on the moneyline, puck line or wagering on totals -- and we have pertinent game-by-game of information for you to consider before making any decisions.

When reviewing the NHL odds in the Toronto at New Jersey matchup on Friday night, you have to ponder if the Leafs offense will continue to shine (26 goals in last six games) or what kind of defense the Devils will play as it has been feast of famine in past seven contests (four games with one or less goals allowed and three with four more goals permitted)

Colorado stinks, and the Avs have really poor at home with a 4-14 SU record. The New York Islanders are deserving favorites and have won four of their last five yet are potentially nerve-wracking 4-10 SU on the road. Arizona is the youngest team in the league, and it is showing with the Coyotes having lost eight straight as they head to Anaheim.
