Let’s take a look at the Saturday NHL odds, along with our best NHL picks

It’s Saturday night and the NHL odds are presenting some matchups with intriguing histories.

The Tampa Bay Lightning and Ottawa Senators both entered the NHL as expansion franchises in 1992. They’ve taken divergent paths since then. While Ottawa currently resides at the bottom of the league, Tampa Bay has won the last two Stanley Cups.

Likewise, the Edmonton Oilers and Carolina Hurricanes (as the Hartford Whalers) wound up entering the NHL in 1979 as the league absorbed four teams from the defunct WHA.

Those are two of a dozen games on tap during the first day of this weekend’s hockey action. Let’s take a look at the Saturday NHL odds and our two best bets.

Hurricanes vs Oilers Pick and Prediction on Saturday
