It’s getting to the time of year when there’s just one hockey game per night. How boring is that? Can the Colorado Avalanche come out and extend their playoff lives? Or does their season end tonight?
Today’s confirmed goaltender match-up for our highlighted game:
The Colorado Avalanche’s Alexandar Georgiev (5-4 record, 3.09 GAA, .887 S%) vs. The Dallas Stars’ Jake Oettinger (7-4 record, 2.02 GAA, .923 S%).

Nathan MacKinnon over 4.5 shots on goal (-105) 

A $10.00 bet would return $19.52.
Nathan MacKinnon isn’t going to go down without a fight. Surprisingly, he has not cleared this line in any game of this series yet, but he is averaging 3.5 shots on 9.0 shot attempts. MacKinnon has nine shot attempts in three of four games this series. In regular season games where MacKinnon finished with nine or more shot attempts, he would clear in 80% of all his games, averaging 6.7 shots on goal. 
It’s even more surprising that MacKinnon hasn’t covered this against the Stars this series, as in his last nine regular season games against his inner division rivals, he cleared in eight games, averaging 6.8 shots on 10.6 shot attempts. 

Tyler Seguin point (-115) 

A $10.00 bet would return $18.69.
Tyler Seguin is the beneficiary of playing in Roope Hintz’s lucrative spot, centring the top line between Jason Robertson and Logan Stankoven. With Hintz’s availability up in the air after leaving Game 3 with an injury, Seguin will be the target for points moving forward.
He found the scoresheet even when he played in his regular third-line role. Seguin has points in three straight games this series, totalling four points. Dating back even further against the Avalanche, he has points in eight of his last nine, totalling 12 points.

Last Game Recap

Arturs Silovs Over 27.5 Shots on Goal – LOSS – (-$10.00)
Edmonton Oilers Puck Line – LOSS – (-$10.00)
Silovs losing a handful of saves throughout the game kills us as he ends one save shy of our number while the Florida Panthers can’t close it out against the Boston Bruins. 
All-Time Record: 98-93-1 (+$6.26)
