he Montreal Canadiens, Dallas Stars and New York Rangers have the three best records in the NHL entering play on Tuesday night, but none of them are the current odds on favorites to win the Stanley Cup this season.
In the latest Stanley Cup odds released by Bovada on Tuesday, it's the Washington Capitals that have moved to the top of the list with 13-2 odds to take hockey's biggest prize in June.
The Stars have the second best odds at 7-1, followed by the Rangers at 15-2 and the Chicago Blackhawks at 9-1. The Canadiens, owners of the best record in the league as of Tuesday, are fifth at 12-1.
The real stunner at the top of the list is the Anaheim Ducks who come in at sixth with 14-1 odds. The Ducks are still on the outside of the Western Conference playoff picture in 11th place and three points out of a playoff spot.
Patrick KAne (2-1) is the current favorite to win the MVP award, while his Chicago Blackhawks teammate Artemi Panarin (3-2) is the favorite to win the Calder Trophy as the NHL's rookie of the year.
Dallas Stars defenseman John Klingberg is at the top of the Norris Trophy list (3-2).
