Adam Fox Over 2.5 Shots +110

The reigning Norris Trophy winner has been a focal point of the Rangers offence at 5-on-5 and the power play. He’s tied for 2nd on the team in shot attempts (26) and 2nd in shots on goal (16). Excluding the series opener that went into triple overtime, the Rangers have averaged 35 shots on goal in the previous three games. Fox has hit the over on this prop in five of his last seven games. He should have another great opportunity to do it again tonight.

Sidney Crosby Over 0.5 Goals +165

“Sid The Kid” has found the fountain of youth in these playoffs. Crosby is 2nd in the NHL in individual scoring chances (27), individual high-danger scoring chances (16) and is tied for 2nd in points (9). The Rangers have had no answer for Crosby and his line with Jake Guentzel and Bryan Rust. Add in the fact that Rangers goalie Igor Shesterkin has looked human in the last two games, allowing 10 goals on 35 shots and things set up well yet again for the Pens captain.

Sam Bennett Over 0.5 Goals +175

The NHL’s highest scoring team during the regular season has just 11 goals in their first four playoff games against Washington. Kudos to the Capitals who have done a very good job defensively to slow down the Panthers. However, the Panthers are back home tonight, where they’ve performed much better all season long. That is especially the case for Bennett who scored 22 of his 29 regular season goals on home-ice. He’s had his chances in this series, but has only scored once.

Mikael Backlund Over 2.5 Shots -110

Much like the Panthers, the Calgary Flames were phenomenal on home-ice this season where they averaged 34 shots per game (6th in the NHL). Calgary has been peppering Stars goalie Jake Oettinger with shots all series long averaging 37 per game. Backlund his hit the over on this prop in three of the four games against Dallas. He is 3rd on the team in shot attempts (22) playing just over 17 minutes per game.
