Much to the surprise of many, the Colorado Avalanche are on the brink of elimination after a 5-1 loss to the Dallas Stars in Game 4. The Avalanche looked deflated as, prior to puck drop, it was announced that playoff-leading goal scorer Valeri Nichushkin would be suspended for six months and placed in stage three of the league’s player assistance program, sending shockwaves around the NHL.
Today’s expected goaltender matchups for our highlighted game:
The Colorado Avalanche’s Alex George (38-15-2) vs the Dallas Stars’ Jake Oettinger (35-14-2).

Nathan Mackinnon to register over 4.5 shots at -105. My $10 bet would return $19.52

Mackinnon has been disappointing in this series and hasn’t hit his over 4.5 since game five of the Jets series. But with the season on the line, I expect Nate Dawg to go down swinging, take him here at .8 units.

Artturi Lehkonen to score anytime at +175. My $10 bet would return $27.50.

With Nichushkin gone for the playoffs expect Lehkonen to play a ton with Mackinnon and Mikko Rantanen. Lehkonen has scored five goals these playoffs already and is a notorious playoff riser.
Take this play .8 units.

Tyler Seguin to register over 2.5 shots at -125. My $10 bet would return $18.

This is every bettors favourite pick of the playoffs, and Seguin has been cashing everyone out. The former second-overall pick has hit his over 2.5 in seven of his last eight games. I like this trend to continue, especially at home.
Take this play at .8 units.

Last Game Bets

Quinn Hughes to register an assist at -135. My $12.50 bet would return $21.75.  – HIT
Elias Pettersson to score a point at -140. My $10 bet would return $17.10 – MISSED
Vancouver to win money-line at +175. My $10 bet would return $27.50 – MISSED
Pettersson got a point but then lost it as the goal was changed from Brock Boeser to Dakota Joshua and Vancouver lost with 30ish seconds left on the clock. We could have been a great day, but ends up poor.
We staked $32.50 and returned $21.75. We are now up $9.80 on the playoffs so far.
