Rangers Moneyline vs. Hurricanes (-120, BetMGM)

The unstoppable force (Rangers power play) meets the immovable object (Hurricanes penalty kill) in an Eastern Conference showdown in the Garden with plenty to play for. The league’s third-best power play should get ample opportunity in this one to make the difference as the Hurricanes are the NHL’s 10th most penalized team. The sidebar to this advantage they should be able to also exploit is the freshly minted goaltender for the current two-seed. Pyotr Kochetkov has just one start under his belt (2-0-0) in the NHL, allowing three goals on just 24 shot attempts. He also had the benefit of facing two far worse opponents than the East’s third seed Rangers.

Goaltending is not often the difference in games until you match up two strong teams, which is the case here as these two are still battling for the Metropolitan crown. Igor Shesterkin has been the difference for the Rangers all year, allowing just over two goals per game with a .936 save percentage. The Hurricanes’ propensity to take penalties should benefit a Rangers team that struggles oftentimes five vs. five and boost an offense enough to back the league’s highest quality of goalie.

Brent Burns Over 2.5 Shots on Goal (+125, DraftKings)

Brent Burns has the highest xROI of any shot on goal prop on the slate by a massive 13% margin, clearly making it the best NHL prop bet for tonight. He is also projected to put over three shots on the net vs. the Ducks, who like the Sharks are just playing for pride at this point and will not be looking to step in front of much as the season’s summit is in sight. Burns has never been shy to shoot the puck and this year is no different, with a shot average just under the projected line at 2.47. The Ducks have been better defensively than what many expected but have still allowed the NHL’s sixth-most shots per game at 33.4.

This game will likely not be one for the audience as both teams just want the season over. That said, both teams do have some speed and offensive talent, which means Burns should have no problem getting the puck to his stick in this one and firing a shot or 10 at the net as he normally does. According to OddsShopper, this is one of the best NHL picks today.
