We have a pair of Game 4s in the NHL playoffs Tuesday night with the Carolina Hurricanes and Edmonton Oilers trying for 3-1 leads.

We think only one of those two gets it. Here are four picks I like for an NHL parlay with odds from BetOnline, one of BMR’s top-rated sportsbooks

Carolina Hurricanes vs. New York Rangers

Tuesday, May 24, 2022 – 07:00 PM EDT at Madison Square Garden 

Metropolitan Division Champions Looking Good

ESPN has Game 4 of this Eastern Conference series with the Hurricanes up 2-1. 

It’s almost bizarre how good the Metropolitan Division champions have looked at home this season in winning every game yet how poor on the road, where the Canes not only are 0-4 but have lost all four by at least two goals and not scored more than two themselves in any. 

Home-ice advantage and having the last line change are important, but this is ridiculous. 

Rangers' Expectation

In the first round, Rangers netminder and expected Vezina Trophy winner Igor Shesterkin had his issues, but he has been excellent in this series.

  • The Russian stopped 43 shots in Sunday’s 3-1 win, becoming the fifth different Rangers goaltender to record 40-plus saves in a playoff win and the first since Henrik Lundqvist in Game 6 of the 2015 second round.
  • Shesterkin has a whopping 339 saves through 10 games, the most ever by a Rangers netminder through 10 playoff games.
  • He is now 11-1 in his career – regular season and playoffs – in games where he makes 40 saves. That lone loss was in triple overtime in Game 1 of the last round vs. Pittsburgh. 

Chris Kreider's Performance

Chris Kreider, who led the Rangers with 52 regular-season goals, had his third game-winner of these playoffs on Sunday, one shy of the team record in a single postseason set by Frank Boucher in 1928, Brian Leetch in 1994, and Mark Messier in 1994.

Kreider’s 30 career playoff goals are No. 2 in franchise lore behind Rod Gilbert’s 34.  

Rangers' Significant Change

Rangers' coach Gerard Gallant made a significant change before Game 3 in breaking up the Kid Line of Alexis Lafreniere, Filip Chytil, and Kaapo Kakko.

  • Chytil moved to the right-wing of the top line next to Kreider and Mika Zibanejad.
  • That trio doubled the Hurricanes' shots, 10-5, in 6:55 together. Zibanejad had a goal and assist. 
  • Carolina has not been great on the power play in these playoffs at 11.6 percent and doesn’t have one in this series.

By comparison, the Rangers are converting on 26.9 percent of their power plays and had one in Sunday’s win.  

There haven’t been more than four goals scored yet in-game this series, so the under is the obvious play.

Calgary Flames vs. Edmonton Oilers

Tuesday, May 24, 2022 – 09:30 PM ET at Rogers Place 

ESPN has Game 4 of this Western Conference semifinal matchup. If you like tight-checking, defensive hockey the Hurricanes-Rangers series above is for you.

Edmonton's Unstoppable Trio

If you like offense and guys flying around the ice, the “Battle of Alberta” is for you – especially Edmonton’s unstoppable trio of Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl, and Evander Kane

In Sunday’s 4-1 home win in which Edmonton scored all four goals in the second period, Kane had a natural hat trick, Draisaitl had four assists and McDavid had three helpers.

Kane was the third Oilers player ever with a natural hat trick in a postseason game, joining Petr Klima (1991) and Wayne Gretzky (1983), and the fourth Oilers player to score multiple hat tricks in a single postseason.

Draisaitl was the first player in league history with four assists in one period of a playoff game.

McDavid Performance

McDavid is the first player in playoff history with nine multi-point outings through his first 10 games of a playoff year. 

McDavid leads the NHL with 23 playoff points Draisaitl has 19 and Kane has 13, with an NHL-best 10 goals. 

That’s 55 points between three guys. Crazy. The last time three teammates on any team combined for 55 or more points through 10 playoff games was with the dynastic 1988 Oilers. 

Calgary was supposed to have the edge in net this series with Jacob Markstrom over 40-year-old Mike Smith, but Markstrom has allowed 15 total goals – he was pulled from Game 3.

Smith has only allowed seven goals. He did leave Game 3 for a bit after taking a hit from Calgary’s Milan Lucic, who got a major for charging and a game misconduct. Smith was able to return eventually.  

If Markstrom isn’t standing on his head against all the Oilers' firepower, the Flames aren’t winning in Edmonton.

The over on the alternate total is a no-brainer as at least five goals have been scored in every game.  

NHL Pick: Oilers (-113) with BetOnline 

NHL Pick: Over alternate of 4.5 goals (-380) with BetOnline 

Parlay Pick

  • Rangers (-108)
  • Under 5.5 goals (-137)
  • Oilers (-113)
  • Over alternate of 4.5 goals (-380)
