Florida won the Previous game 6-5 in overtime after dropping the first two. They have averaged 4.2 goals over their last 10 games and averaged 3.8 per game during the regular season against Tampa Bay. Florida has also outshot the Lightning in each of the last two games. Tampa Bay is averaging just 2.7 goals per game over their last 10 games.  Back the Panthers.

Pick: Florida Panthers +120

Pittsburgh Penguins +105 New York Islanders -110 O/U: 5.5

3:00PM EST

Pittsburgh has taken a 2-1 series lead after their 5-4 win at New York last time out. They won 6 of 8 during the regular season. Despite losing the last 2 games, the Islanders started to get some momentum scoring 3 goals in the 3rd period to tie the game. They played with a lot more energy than the Penguins, outhitting them by 18 and taking 3 more shots. The Islanders had a .750 win percentage at home during the regular season, and only lost consecutive games in New York on one occasion.

Pick: New York Islanders -110

Montreal Canadiens +140 Toronto Maple Leafs -170 O/U: 5.5

7:00PM EST

The Maple Leafs dropped the first game at home, despite going 4-1 against Montreal in Toronto during the regular season. Toronto is allowing just 2 goals per game over their last ten and allowed just 2.64 at home during the regular season. Montreal is averaging just 2.5 goals per game over their last ten, and 2.5 against Toronto this season. Toronto outshot the Canadiens 36-30, so you should expect more of those opportunities to convert in this one.  

Pick: Toronto Maple Leafs -170

Vegas Golden Knights -120 Minnesota Wild +105 O/U: 5.5

8:00PM EST

Minnesota won 3 of 4 at home against Vegas during the regular season and will look to tie up the series with a win in this one. They jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the previous game before getting outscored 5-0 over the last two periods. This should be a competitive game with the Wild trying to avoid a 3-1 hole. Give me the Wild to keep this one close.

Pick: Minnesota Wild +1.5
