Shane’s Free Pick

The Giants offense has been good this season and they are going to continue the success again in this game with the scoring. The Royals offense has been terrible all season and is currently ranked 29th in the NHL. The Giants will score plenty against Keller and that will be the difference. Back the Giants on the run line.
