Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Columbus Blue Jackets

Thursday, April 13, 2023 – 07:00 PM EDT at Nationwide Arena

Sidney Crosby (Pittsburgh Penguins)

Anytime Goalscorer

  • Goals Scored: 33
  • Goals Assisted: 58
  • Shots Per Game: 3.13

Although Sidney Crosby has only scored twice in his previous nine games, we do like his chances of doing so tonight as the Columbus Blue Jackets have been one of the worst defenses this year allowing 4.01 goals per game.

Crosby has not faced the Blue Jackets this season. Following 8 chances in the previous game and no goals, he could be on the hunt to get on the scoreboard one final time this season.

Despite being 35, Crosby leads the team in points, assists, and shots, and only trailing current top scorer Jake Guentzel by two goals.

New Jersey Devils vs. Washington Capitals

Thursday, April 13, 2023 – 07:00 PM EDT at Capital One Arena

Nico Hischier (New Jersey Devils)

Over/Under Shots

  • Goals Scored: 31
  • Goals Assisted: 48
  • Shots Per Game: 3.17

Coming into this NHL game as the Devils 3rd highest shot taker this season, Nico Hischier has averaged well above three shots per game this season. We are more than happy to take the Swiss native at New Jersey betting sites to see 3+ shots in tonight’s road game.

Currently on a run of registering 2/1/2 shots and having failed to score in 9 of his previous 10 games, we believe he will be trigger-happy in this final Devils game of the season.

It’s also worth noting Hischier has averaged 4.1 shots per game against the Capitals this season.

Boston Bruins vs. Montreal Canadiens

Thursday, April 13, 2023 – 07:00 PM EDT at Bell Centre

David Pastrnak (Boston Bruins)

Over/Under Assists

  • Goals Scored: 60
  • Goals Assisted: 51
  • Shots Per Game: 4.98

The man who just keeps on giving, David Pastrnak has been on fire in his previous 15 games having had 5+ shots in 14 of them. He has scored 9 goals in 6 games, including two hat-tricks.

We are targeting his assist total to go over 0.5 tonight, having scored an assist in 4 of his previous 5 games. We suspect the Bruins should score a few tonight, so there is every chance Pastrnak picks up another assist here at some nice NHL odds of +100.

NHL Prop Pick: David Pastrnak Over 0.5 Assists (+100) at BetOnline

Vegas Golden Knights vs. Seattle Kraken

Thursday, April 13, 2023 – 10:30 PM EDT at Climate Pledge Arena

Alex Pietrangelo (Vegas Golden Knights)

Over/Under Points

  • Goals Scored: 11
  • Goals Assisted: 43
  • Shots Per Game: 2.36

Despite having just 54 points this season, Vegas defenseman Alex Pietrangelo has become a regular on the scoreboard since the start of March, scoring 19 points in 21 games, and has scored at least one point in 16 of those 21 games.

Pietrangelo has had his best points-per-game ratio against Pacific Division teams this season and also when playing on a Thursday.

We believe the Golden Knights could get a few tonight as the Kraken are already anticipating the playoffs. Vegas will be hoping to win to avoid being joint top of the Conference with Edmonton.

NHL Pick: Alex Pietrangelo Over 0.5 Points (-110) at BetOnline
