Shane’s Free Pick

Oettinger was lights out in his last game and it’s going to be no different in this game. The Golden Knighs offense is only going to score a goal or two at home, and that will be the difference. Back the Star on the money line. This game is also going to stay at five goals or less and the under is a good play.
