You can click on the first button at the top of this NHL league standings page to switch between “Money” (the moneyline), “Puck Line” (the spread) and “Total” (total goals) data. The page is continually updated, so the information displayed is always up-to-the-minute.
The spread in ice hockey is known as the puck line. It essentially gives the supposedly stronger team a -1.5-goal handicap to provide NHL fans with another intriguing betting option.
For example, FanDuel Sportsbook was offering -134 on Tampa Bay Lightning to beat Montreal Canadiens in Game 3 of the 2021 Stanley Cup Finals. The Canadiens were the +114 underdogs. An alternative was to bet on either team to cover the puck line.
In that case, you could have bet on the Tampa Bay -1.5 at odds of +215 or Montreal +1.5 at -265. If you felt the Lightning would secure a comfortable win, you could have enjoyed much better odds on the puck line. The Lightning just needed to win by 2 or more goals for the bet to pay off.
In the end, the Lightning won the game 6-3. Tampa Bay ended up winning the series 4-1, but it also covered the puck line in the first two games, whereas Montreal covered it in Game 4 and Game 5.
Our puck line NHL team standings chart tells you how well each team has fared against this 1.5-goal spread throughout the course of the season. You will see how often each team covered and failed to cover. For example, if the New York Rangers covered 35 times and failed to do so 21 times, it would be rendered 35-21 in the NHL season standings.
The next column, called “Diff”, tells you the average number of goals by which the team covers the puck line. You can also see the NHL hockey standings for how often each team covered the puck line at home or away.
