NHL Playoff Slapshot – May 7th

GAME THOUGHTS

FLORIDA vs WASHINGTON

This game is not on the MAIN 3 game DraftKings slate today, but I do expect Washington to play well on their home ice and my gut instinct is to ride the under on this game with Washington pulling out an OT victory 3-2.

COLORADO vs NASHVILLE

Unlike the Bruins getting their one win vs Carolina, the Predators will not be as lucky here.  Love riding the Avs in DFS and Darcy Keumper in Goal.

NY RANGERS vs PITTSBURGH

Gut says Pittsburgh is in trouble but then this is the type of playoff game which they normally would find a way to win.

FLAMES vs STARS

Want your contrarian stack of the day?  It’s riding both sides in this series which has had 3 total goals in it.  The only path though for that to produce is both of the other games going under.  Dallas is typically a good home team who controls the pace to their liking and I think they steal this one today, 4-3.

I’m calling a playoff shutty today as the Avs win 4-0.
