We will go to Elmont, New York, for our first prop bet of the day. The Hurricanes have won both games of this series, but each matchup has been close. Carolina won 2-1 in Game One and 4-3 in overtime in Game Two. We will look at Brady Skjei for this prop. Skjei is a defenseman but sometimes has a penchant for shooting. He will finish with three or more shots today. Bet on the over.

Skjei shot three times in Game One and four times in Game Two. The 29-year-old may have only averaged 2.32 shots per game during the season, but he has been less hesitant to shoot the puck in the Playoffs. This is partially because the Islanders have given up more than 35 shots per game in this series, but it is also because the veteran has been more active on the offensive end. Skjei will have three or more shots today. Bet on the over.

Boston Bruins vs Florida Panthers

Hampus Lindholm U 0.5 Points -130 (BetMGM)

Our second prop bet of the day will come from the Bruins-Panthers game. The Bruins won Game One 3-1 but lost Game Two 6-3. We will look at Hampus Lindholm for this prop. Lindholm put up 53 points during the season but does not have a point in the Playoffs. He will also fail to secure a point today. Bet on the under.

Lindholm faced the Panthers four times this season and only finished with two assists. As I mentioned above, he also has not had any points in the Playoffs. The defenseman does not perform well against the Panthers, and his numbers reflect that. I do not need to say anything else. Bet on the under.

Dallas Stars vs Minnesota Wild

Tyler Seguin U 0.5 Points -120 (BetMGM)

Our final prop bet of the day will take us to St. Paul, Minnesota. This has been an interesting series so far. The Stars lost Game One 3-2 in overtime but rebounded with a 7-3 victory in Game Two. I would not be surprised if this series goes all seven games. This prop will involve the Star’s Tyler Seguin. Seguin is still an efficient player but not the guy he once was in 2018. His numbers have taken a dip since that time, and his ice time has as well. He will finish this game without a point. Bet on the under.

Seguin had a goal last game but did not finish with a point in Game Two. His Game Two goal was impressive, but it was one of seven that the Stars had. I do not expect the Stars to score more than four in this game, so it is not reasonable to expect Seguin to have a goal. Even an assist is unlikely, as Seguin does not play on Dallas’ top line and averages less than 17 minutes per game. Seguin will finish without a point. Bet on the under.
