Shane’s Free pick

I really don’t trust either of these goaltenders and that is going to be an issue again here. Grubauer has had his issues and Lankinen is giving up 3.62 goals per game. Look for both of these teams to really struggle here, and that is going to be the difference here as this game is going to be higher scoring. Back the over to cash here. This game is going to have eight or nine goals scored. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
