Best NHL Player Prop Bets Today – Tuesday, March 7
The Columbus Blue Jackets are one of the worst teams in hockey and, at 20-37-6, are the worst team in the Eastern Conference this season. Ranking towards the bottom offensively and defensively, there’s no bright spot for this Columbus team.
Leading point-scorer Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins will take advantage of an inferior opponent on Tuesday night when Columbus travels to Pittsburgh. Crosby, who’s had four or more shots on goal in two of his last three games, will be very aggressive against a Columbus defense that allows 35.11 shots on goal, which is the third-most in the NHL this season.
Look for Crosby to be on the front foot and probably even put one in the back of the net on Tuesday night.
The Buffalo Sabres will have a tall task against them on Tuesday night when they take on the New York Islanders. They’ll face off against Illya Sorokin, who’s one of the top goalies in the league and has the third-best save percentage this season at .925.
While not much gets by Sorokin, the Sabres' best chance at getting one in the net will be through Tage Thompson. Thompson, who’s scored in three of his last five games, will have to find the net in this one if the Sabres want to stay relevant in this game. Despite having two or fewer shots on goal in his last three games, Buffalo will be relying on Thompson to get a lot of looks in this game.
Expect a very active Thompson and, as a result, a lot of shots on goal.
The Arizona Coyotes are absolutely dreadful this season as their 21-32-10 record is one of the worst in hockey. With the 28th-ranked offense and the second-worst defense in hockey, their record seems fitting. The Coyotes allow 35.56 shots on goal, which is the second most shots on goal allowed in hockey this season.
St. Louis Blues center Jordan Kyrou will take advantage of that weak defense on Tuesday night as he’ll be heavily involved. With three or more shots on goal in five of his last seven games, Kyrou will get one of the easiest defenses that he’s faced on Tuesday night. In his two matchups against Arizona this season, Kyrou had four and six shots on goal.
Wingman Jordan Eberle has been one of the bright spots for the Seattle Kraken this season as he leads all players with 50 points. While he ranks fourth in goals scored, Eberle is always heavily involved in this Kraken offense.
The Kraken will face one of the worst teams in hockey on Tuesday night. The Ducks allow 39.41 shots on goal, which is the most shots allowed on goal this season.
With two or more shots on goal coming in his last three matchups, Eberle will look to stay involved and lead his Kraken to victory.
