Ottawa Senators vs. New York Rangers

My Pick – Artemi Panarin to Account for Over 1.5 Points (+110) at DraftKings

One of the most pivotal games of the night will be the Atlantic divisional matchup between the Montreal Canadians and the Detroit Red Wings. This will be a rematch and the final game of the season after yesterday's 5-4 overtime win for the Red Wings at home. 

That when was the third consecutive game where Detroit has gone either into overtime or into a shootout. It is clear that the Red Wings are fatigued, but they are determined for a playoff push with a win over their rivals. 

It still doesn't help the fact that the Red Wings have one of the worst seasons in the league, ranking 24th in goals allowed per game (3.31). Defenseman Matthew matheson has been a player that is found a way to get consistent points against the red wings. And the three games played this season against detroit, Matheson has account for four total points with three assists.

He has also been a dynamic player in April as he is accounted for 11 points with 10 being assists in eight games played.

Chicago Blackhawks vs. Vegas Golden Knights 

My Pick – Jack Eichel to Account for Over 1.5 Points (+150) at DraftKings

The biggest mismatch of other night is set as the the Chicago Blackhawks go on the road to take on the Vegas Golden Knights. This game will be one of the final games of the season to take advantage of the player props bets based on defenses.

One player to watch out for in this game is Vegas center Jack Eichel. In six games played this April, Eichel has accounted for nine total points with five goals. Three of those six games have come where he is accounted for two or more points. 

The golden knights are playing a Cox defense that's right 29th and a league in goals allowed per game (3.51). The first star players like Eichel to make a huge performance in the final two games for both games this regular season.
