Montreal at Anaheim
Premier Sports, 3am Friday night

Goals should be at a premium when the NHL's two tamest attacks meet in Anaheim.

Montreal have scored just 11 goals in their seven matches and only three in the first two games of their Californian trip against San Jose and LA. 

The Ducks are in the midst of an injury crisis and have netted just 12 in six games.

Washington at Detroit
FreeSports, 12.30am Friday night

Washington are in the first year of a rebuild after a series of disappointing playoff exits, and are struggling for results early in the season.

However, Alex Ovechkin - the NHL's top goalscorer in four of the last five seasons - has been on fire, potting nine goals in seven games and the Russian looks worth backing to find the net on this trip to Detroit's spectacular new stadium.

Vancouver at Buffalo
Premier Sports, midnight Friday

Vancouver are back in action just 24 hours after a 6-3 beating in Boston, but conceding three goals during a five-minute penalty kill in the first period of that game more-or-less decided the result.

The Canucks are worth a bet to bounce back in Buffalo. The Sabres had hoped for improved fortunes this season but they've made a terrible start with just one win in their first seven games.
