Just one of tonight’s three playoff games can be wrapped up tonight as the Pittsburgh Penguins hold a 3-1 series lead over the New York Rangers.

The other two playoff matches are tied at 2-2 in the series. Check out what NHL play props we have in store tonight.

Pittsburgh Penguins vs. New York Rangers

Wednesday, May 11, 2022 – 07:00 PM EDT at Madison Square Garden

Sidney Crosby (Pittsburgh Penguins)

The Penguins' main man has still proven he has it as Crosby has racked up 9 points in the postseason thus far as he has scored twice and assisted on 7 occasions.

We are expecting another high-scoring affair between the NY Rangers and Penguins tonight, the first four games of the series have averaged 6.4 goals per game.

Crosby has scored an assist in all four games so far and with the Penguins just one game away from a series win we like Crosbys' NHL odds to go five games in a row picking up another assist. The Penguins smell blood and they could be feasting tonight.

Jake Guentzel (Pittsburgh Penguins)

The Penguins managed to take an impressive average of 33 shots per game over the course of the series thus far and their top goalscorer in the regular season (he also managed the same number of points as Crosby with a total of 84) has averaged 6 shots per game across the series thus far.

We are more than happy to get on Guentzel at plus money to see four or more shots in tonight’s game.

The 27-year-old has managed 7-3-6-8 shots against the Rangers in the series thus far.

He also looks like a nice set of odds at +145 to score anytime also as he has scored 5 goals in the series thus far, including at least one goal in each game.

Washington Capitals vs. Florida Panthers

Wednesday, May 11, 2022 – 07:30 PM EDT at FLA Live Arena

Anthony Duclair (Florida Panthers)

We were let down by Duclair last time out to get on the scoreboard, in fact Despite being the Panthers' 3rd highest scorer in the regular season, Duclair has failed to get on the board once in the playoffs.

Last time out Duclair was -120 to score over 0.5 points, to pick him up at plus money this time around is a nice set of odds in a game where the Panthers should rack up some goals given that they only scored four in the previous 6 periods.

This is of course the highest-scoring team in the regular season scoring just over 4.1 goals per game.

With the series tied at 2-2 and Florida back on home ice, we see them picking up the win here. As a side play, we also like Florida’s Johnathan Huberdeau to take over 2.5 shots, although it is juiced to -135 with the top-rated sportsbooks.

Dallas Stars vs. Calgary Flames

Wednesday, May 11, 2022 – 09:30 PM EDT at Scotiabank Saddledome

Mikael Backlund (Calgary Flames)

Our final NHL player prop is going to be the deadlocked 2-2 series between the Stars and the Flames, this series thus far has only produced 3.2 goals on average and the first two games played at the Scotiabank Saddledome were shutout wins.

A 1-0 victory for the Stars on opening night and a 2-0 win for the Flames in game 2.

Last time out we expected a low-scoring Dallas affair and took Tyler Seguin under points total, unenviably they scored only one goal and the goalscorer was Seguin, we are got some beef with this game.

However today we are much more confident that our play will cash, Mikael Backlund has been solid in this series, although he has only picked up one point, he has steadily managed to take over 2.5 game shots this series having had 3/4/3/2.

Naturally, the game he had 2 shots was the only game he did manage a point in. Backlund has managed 2.6 shots per game in the regular season.
