Nashville Predators vs. Chicago Blackhawks

My Pick – Ryan O'Reilly to Account for Over 0.5 Points (-166) at DraftKings

Among the less complicated games of the night is the matchup between the Nashville predators going on the road to take on the Chicago Blackhawks. This is a game that should have Nashville coming out as a huge victor.

With big victories comes big performances and there should definitely be a big performance from their stars and role players. Among the players to watch out for is center Ryan O'Reilly. In five games played this april, O'Reilly has accounted for five points with four being assists. He has accounted for a goal or an assist in three of the last four games played.

O'Reilly and the Predators are taken on a Chicago Blackhawks defense that is ranked 29th in the league and goals allowed per game (3.49). O'Reilly has more than a solid chance to account for a point tonight, making this one of the best bets to make in terms of player props.

Calgary Flames vs. Anaheim Ducks

My Pick – Andre Kuzmento to Account for Over 0.5 Assists (+168) at DraftKings

The final game of the night is set for Pacific division around match up as a Calgary Flames go on the road to take on the Anaheim Ducks. The Ducks possess one of the worst defenses in the league as they are ranked 30th in goals allowed per game (3.58).

While the Flames are not highly efficient on the other side of the ice, they are more than capable of making a solid run at a terrible defense. Flames forward Andre Kuzmenko is a player that has been turning the intensity for the team up since being traded from the Vancouver Canucks during the NHL Trade Deadline.

He has accounted for an assist in three of the last four games played and four in the last seven games. Anaheim ranks 30th in the league in goals allowed per game (3.58). This means there will be plenty of opportunities for Kuzmenko to get his team into great scoring positions against a bad defense.
