NHL Player Props Monday: Kaprizov Burns Oilers, 3 More Picks

Mondays are always better when there are six NHL games to look forward to. Here are four player props to consider as we kick off the week.

Tyler Toffoli – Anytime Goal Scorer

The Flames played a great game against the Leafs on Saturday night but came up just short in overtime. Nazem Kadri and Jonathan Huberdeau have been coming alive, and now it’s time for the secondary scoring to step up.

Toffoli has 10 goals on the year but has only scored in one of his last five games. Calgary heads to Montreal tonight to take on the team that traded the winger away. The veteran should have added motivation playing in front of his former crowd.

Look for Toffoli to bury one against his old squad the way Kadri did against Toronto last game.

Chris Kreider – Under 2.5 Shots

New York hosts a familiar foe tonight as New Jersey visits Madison Square Garden. The Rangers currently trail the division-leading Devils by ten points in the Metropolitan.

Chris Kreider hasn’t been shooting the puck the way he was earlier in the season, with just five shots in his last three games. He’s been under 2.5 in four of his last five and will now face a Devils team that only gives up 26.6 shots per game (2nd).

It’s worth noting that when these teams faced off two weeks ago, Kreider was held to just one shot. At plus money from NHL betting sites, this is a bet you have to hold your breath and take.

Sidney Crosby – Over 1.5 Points

The Penguins are playing like Stanley Cup contenders, with Sidney Crosby leading the way. Pittsburgh has won 10 of 12, including two five-game win streaks.

Crosby has registered at least one point in 11 of his last 13 games and has 22 in that span. The future Hall of Famer loves his home cooking. He’s recorded nine points in his previous four home games, including three multi-point outings.

The Pens will host the Stars, who could get a rude awakening on the road after five straight home games. Dallas has given up 15 goals in its last four games.

Kirill Kaprizov – Anytime Goal Scorer

After a seven-game goal-scoring streak, Kirill Kaprizov has gone two games without potting one. No better way to remedy that than by facing the Edmonton Oilers.

The Oilers play a loose style that results in a lot of goals – for both teams. Edmonton is fifth in goals for (3.64) but 22nd in goals against (3.46). Kaprizov has followed up his 108-point campaign with 34 points in 27 games so far this season.

Last game was the first time the Russian had been held off the scoresheet since Nov. 8.
