Friday night hockey consists of three games. Two of the three games consist of the top twelve teams facing off against two of the league’s bottom three teams. In the third match-up, Marc-Andre Fleury gets the start for the Minnesota Wild against his former team, the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Tonight’s confirmed goaltending match-ups for these three games:
The Penguins’ Alex Nedeljkovic (8-3-3) vs. the Wild’s Marc-Andre Fleury (8-9-3). 
The Rangers’ Igor Shesterkin (19-12-1) vs. the Blackhawks’ Petr Mrazek (12-20-1).
The Oilers’ Calvin Pickard (5-2) vs. the Ducks’ John Gibson (10-19-1).

Leon Draisaitl over 2.5 shots on goal (-163)

Your $15.00 bet would return $24.23.
Leon Draisaitl has cleared in five of his last 10 road games, averaging 2.7 shots on 5.5 shot attempts. When looking at Draisaitl’s full-season road splits, he’s clearing at a 57% clip, averaging 2.9 shots on 5.7 shot attempts. While the volume has been there, Draisaitl has missed in three straight games. Only once this season has he gone four games straight without covering this line.
Against the Anaheim Ducks, Draisaitl has cleared his shots line in eight of his last nine games, averaging 4.3 shots on 6.9 shot attempts. The Ducks allow fifth most shots on goal per game, averaging 32.7 against per game. To the centre position, the Ducks allow the eighth most shots, averaging 11.2 per game.

Leon Draisaitl power play point (+130)

Your $7.50 bet would return $17.25.
Double dipping on Draisaitl tonight. 
Leon has power play points in four of his last 10 games, totalling six power play points. Against the Ducks, Draisaitl has a power play point in four of his last six games, totalling five power play points. 
The Edmonton Oilers have a whomping 44.4% power play percentage over their last 10 games. The Ducks are the second most undisciplined team in the league, allowing 3.9 power play opportunities per game. Draisaitl has the second most power play points on the Oilers, totalling 21 on the season. 

Adam Fox assist (-138)

Your $10.00 bet would return $17.27.
Adam Fox has assists in five of his last seven games, totalling six assists. On the road this season, Fox has an assist in 64% of all his games. Fox has failed to register an assist in two straight games. He has only gone three games straight without recording an assist once this season in his 41 games this season. 
Against the Blackhawks, Fox has assists in four of his last five games, totalling seven assists. Chicago has been quite sound defensively as of late considering where they are in the league standings, only allowing 2.2 goals against. But how long will this really last?
