Day three of the return of the NHL is set for a few games that have specific value for the playoff race and for sports gambling. These are games that should bring great performances based on player props from Draft Kings.
Here are our favorite NHL player prop picks for Tuesday.
The New York Rangers have the potential to make a serious Eastern Conference Finals run thanks to their stellar roster. While they are highly efficient on the defensive side of the ice, they are just as efficient on offense.
Rangers forward Artemi Panarin could have another explosive performance on Wednesday as the Rangers host the Tampa Bay Lightning. The last time the Rangers took on the Lightning on December 30, Panarin scored three goals in the 5-1 road win.
In the last game before the NHL All-Star Break, Panarin accounted for a goal and two assists in the 7-2 road win over the Ottawa Senators.
The Rangers possess the 12th-ranked scoring offense, as they average 3.24 goals per game. They will take on a defense from Tampa Bay that is ranked 23rd in the league in goals allowed per game (3.28).
New York comes into this game with a more efficient defense, an explosive offense, a homecourt advantage, and series momentum over the Lightning.
The Minnesota Wild have a chance to make a statement on Wednesday night as they take on one of the worst teams in the league, the Chicago Blackhawks.
The offense of the Wild, which has been inefficient at most times during the season, has a chance to improve significantly with a great performance against a bad Blackhawks defense. The Blackhawks are ranked 28th in the league in goals allowed per game (3.52).
Leading the charge for Minnesota is forward Kirill Kapizov., who is the team's offensive leader. He has accounted for 45 points, with 19 of them being goals and 23 being assists.
He went into the NHL All-Star Break on fire by accounting for two or more points in three of the last five games played. Look for Kapizov to have a huge game.
