The NHL schedule for Thursday has eight games on the card including a battle in Florida between the Panthers and Lightning. Cam is tempted to take a shot on the underdog Panthers at a price.

The Hurricanes are small home favorites against the Canadiens in what should be an interesting home opener for Carolina.

The Rangers are small home favorites as they host the Winnipeg Jets in what could be a high scoring game.

Two big favorites on Thursday are Pittsburgh as they host Buffalo and Nashville as they host Minnesota.

The three later games have small home NHL odds, as the Bruins visit the Dallas Stars with the Bruins a small road favorite, the Avalanche a slight home favorite against Calgary, while the Ducks are a small home favorite against Arizona.
