Buffalo Sabres vs. Columbus Blue Jackets

Friday, April 14, 2023 – 07:30 PM EDT at Nationwide Arena

Alex Tuch (Buffalo Sabres)

  • Goals Scored: 46
  • Goals Assisted: 47
  • Shots Per Game: 3.72

Alex Tuch goes into his game as the Buffalo Sabres 2nd highest scorer this season despite having not scored now for 9 games and only three times in his previous nine.

It’s worth noting that in all three games he scored, Tuch has managed 2/2/3 goals each game, although we are betting him to score anytime here at +115, don’t be surprised if he scores 2+ at +650.

Columbus Blue Jackets allow the 2nd most amount of goals per game this season, allowing 4.01, and Tuch has scored one goal in one appearance against the Blue Jackets this season.

Tuch doesn’t mind playing on the road having had 21 goals compared to 14 at home and he boasts a respectable 8 goals in 13 games when on a back-to-back.

Jeff Skinner (Buffalo Sabres)

  • Goals Scored: 34
  • Goals Assisted: 42
  • Shots Per Game: 2.92

The Columbus Blue Jackets enter this game having allowed the 3rd most amount of shots against in the entire NHL this season.

Both teams are on a back-to-back here, and Buffalo Sabres’ Jeff Skinner enters into this game having had the second most amount of shots on the Sabres roster.

When playing on Fridays, Skinner has averaged 3.9 shots per game and has been on fire lately, averaging 4.2 shots in his previous 10 games.

He managed five shots on net the last time he faced Columbus. We are happy to lay the juice with Skinner’s shot total to go over in this NHL matchup.

Colorado Avalanche vs. Nashville Predators

Friday, April 14, 2023 – 08:00 PM EDT at Bridgestone Arena

Cody Glass (Nashville Predators)

  • Goals Scored: 14
  • Goals Assisted: 20
  • Shots Per Game: 1.90

Despite looking to lay -200 odds on Cody Glass to see 2+ game shots tonight, we are happy to do so as Glass has hit 2+ game shots in 6 of his previous 8 games, and it’s been eleven games since he failed to register a single shot.

Having only taken 1 shot last night, we suspect Glass will look to get some shots on net in the Predators’ final home game of the season.

Glass has averaged exactly two shots this season when playing on a Friday, and against Western Conference opposition he has averaged 1.97 shots per game. He has also been impressive on back-to-back situations averaging 2.2 shots per game.

NHL Pick: Cody Glass Over 1.5 Shots (-200) at Heritage Sports (visit our Heritage Sports Review)

J.T. Compher (Colorado Avalanche)

  • Goals Scored: 17
  • Goals Assisted: 35
  • Shots Per Game: 1.95

J.T. Compher has seen the 4th most amount of points scored for Colorado this season. We are leaning toward Compher for a point tonight as we suspect he might get some extra game time tonight, as Colorado looks to rest some of the better players on the roster.

BetOnline is offering us -130 for Compher to score at least one point tonight, and he has averaged 1 point per game against the Predators this season, having faced them three times.

Compher’s ice time has gone up in the previous few games, and with this being the last regular game of the season, we wouldn’t be surprised to see him get on the scoreboard for the first time in two games.

NHL Pick: J.T. Compher Over 0.5 Points (-130) at BetOnline
