They will say farewell to Joe Louis Arena, the home to the Detroit Red Wings since 1979, on the last day of the NHL regular season. That game is part of a bigger parlay.

NHL Parlay Of The Night

Hit on this four-game parlay during Sunday’s wrap up to the NHL regular season and you will be smiling all the way to the bank. Odds courtesy of SportsBetting.ag:

New Jersey Devils (+154) at Detroit Red Wings (-171)

You don’t honestly think that the Red Wings will lose their farewell game at Joe Louis Arena, do you? Well, they did lose their first one there back in 1979 – and their third one to the Colorado Rockies, who the Devils were in a previous life.

They won’t drop this one, though. The Wings are playing it smart, saving the closing ceremonies until after the game. They will take care of business first, and then get the party started, so that there’s no celebratory hangover when the game gets underway.

The Wings are 4-3 against the spread in their last seven home games. 

Pick: The Red Wings (-171)

 Buffalo Sabres (+149) at Tampa Bay Lightning (-165)

Nikita Kucherov became the fifth player in franchise history to post a 40-goal season as the Lightning improved to 7-1-1 in their last nine games with Friday’s win at Montreal.

Tampa Bay is out of the playoffs and the Lightning just may take out their frustration on the Sabres. Yanni Gourde has scored five times over his last seven contests after finding the net just once in his first 14 NHL games. Victor Hedman is the first Tampa Bay defenceman to accumulate 70 points in a season.

The Sabres will be wrapping up their season and their league-high 19th set of back-to-back games and are so far 6-11-1 in the second game of that scenario this season. The Sabres are 2-7 in their last nine road games.

Pick: The Lightning (-165)

Carolina Hurricanes (+145) at Philadelphia Flyers (-161)

After a spurt where they were among the NHL’s hottest teams, the Hurricanes have come back down to Earth and are 1-5 their last six games. They’ve allowed three or more goals against in five straight games while scoring more than twice just two times over their past five games.

The Flyers have won six straight at home and are 25-11-4 there this season. They’ve scored at least three goals in every one of those wins, including 4-3 victory over Carolina, and have posted a pair of shutouts during that span. Philly forward Brayden Schenn leads the NHL with 17 power-play goals, one more than teammate Wayne Simmonds.  

Pick: The Flyers (-161)

Colorado Avalanche (+173) at St. Louis Blues (-193)

This one might look like an inviting time to play the lowly Avalanche, but as tempting as it may be to go for the big score, you’d don’t want to go there.

If there’s a team that’s pulled the chute and is playing out the string, it’s the Avalanche. Colorado is an NHL-worst 9-29-2 on the road and have lost 11 in a row away from the Pepsi Center. And they are losing them badly, giving up at least four goals in each of their last six road defeats.

The Blues, meanhwile, are steamrolling their way into the postseason. They are to 14-2-2 in their past 18 games. At home, they are 4-1-1 in their last six. St. Louis are 3-0-1 against Colorado this season and have outscored the Avalanche 13-5 during those games. St. Louis have allowed the fewest goals (58) and posted the top save percentage (.938) in the NHL since Feb. 1.

Pick: The Blues (-193)
