BRUINS at HURRICANES (NHL)

Boston has been hot for so long that a slump had to come. The Bruins come into Raleigh, North Carolina on a 4-game losing streak. Carolina is fighting for its playoff life. HURRICANES.

CANUCKS at FLAMES (NHL)

Both teams on a roll. Vancouver has won five in a row and Calgary is off two straight victories. Calgary has been strong at home and its raucous crowd should be the difference. FLAMES ... Double bonus: NJ Devils, Ottawa Senators.

SIXERS at PACERS (NBA)

Philadelphia is 14-6 over its last 20 games, the identical record of Boston, Cleveland and Orlando. While the Sixers aren’t considered in the class of the East elite, they are hot and probable dogs. SIXERS.

San Antonio was hot entering the All-Star break, going 6-1-1 ATS in its last 8. Spurs took the earlier meeting by 12 and just won at New Jersey by 15. Nate Robinson can’t dunk all the time. SPURS ... Double bonus: Utah Jazz, Oklahoma City.
