This seems as close to a lock as there is right now. Matthews has goals in 6 of his last 7 games, with the one game without one being his last game. Tonight he gets a great matchup vs. a pretty poor defensive team in the Montreal Canadiens. The Canadiens are giving up more than 3.6 goals per game over the past month and if the Maple Leafs do score some goals tonight (they should), Matthews will be at the front of the line scoring goals.
Alex Ovechkin – .5 Goals – Over
The climb up the top of the All Time goal scoring list continues as Ovi scored another one last night. Tonight he gets to face a Devils team giving up almost 4 goals per game over the last month. Ovechkin has goals in 5 of 6 games now. After tonight we’ll be saying 6 of 7 games as he scores at least one goal.
Anthony Duclair – .5 Points – Over
Absolutely love this spot tonight for the Panthers. In my Saturday Slapshot article today, I wrote up Duclair and his linemates as one of my top stacks. Duclair has points in in 3 straight games and has a great chance to keep that streak going tonight. I’m going with the Over for Duclair as he should get at least an assist on the box score.
James Reimer – 2.5 Goals Allowed – Under
Reimer is one of my favorite goalies tonight. He’s been pretty solid of late and is getting a matchup vs. a Ducks team that has been brutal on the offensive side of things. Over the last month, the Ducks are scoring just 2.15 goals per game. That’s not going to cut it and with Reimer’s solid play of late, I’m going to side with the Under on this PrizePicks number of 2.5 goals. A shutout isn’t out of the question tonight.
Daniel Vladar – 2.5 Goals Allowed – Over
The Flames are on the back end of a back to back set tonight and will turn the crease over to Vladar. Vladar has only given up 2 goals a piece in each of his last 2 games, but prior to that he was struggling. He’s coming into this game facing an Oilers team that has been showing some signs of life. The top line of McDavid, Kane, and Yamamoto has been really good and should be able to put up a couple of goals tonight. That would leave another one for the Draisaitl and his friends. Edmonton puts up at least 3 goals tonight!
