We’ve got a five-game slate for Friday’s NHL card, and that means there are plenty of opportunities for value. Right now, we’re going to be focusing on player props, bringing you a few of our favorite props. Before you bet these, make sure you also check out our picks on the side and total for every game. We’ve been having a great NHL season so far, let’s keep it going on Friday.

Mika Zibanejad Over 0.5 Points (-124)

We certainly do not back the Rangers on a normal basis, given their sub-par record. However, after blasting the Flyers 9-0 on Wednesday, there is reason to believe one of their players is worth a look tonight. That player being Mika Zibanejad. He had six points in that game against Philadelphia and still only has 17 points on the season. Maybe his huge performance of three assists and three goals will be the start of point streak. He has also already performed decently well against Washington this year, earning two points in their two head to head meetings. Therefore, backing Zibanejad to score a point off his best game of the year will be our play tonight.

Bo Horvat Over 0.5 Points (-118)

The Vancouver Canucks come into this game with a nice little three-game winning streak. During this streak, Bo Horvat has been very productive and we like him to continue that tonight. Horvat has 24 points on the season, which is fourth best on Vancouver. He does have 13 goals, which is second best on the team. Over the last three games, Horvat has four points. In seven games against the Canadiens, Horvat has a total of seven points, or an average of one point per game. With that type of production, we like him to grab at least one point here tonight. So while we believe Montreal will still win this game, backing the Horvat point prop will be our play.

Mark Stone Over 1 Points (+140)

The Vegas Golden Knights continue to use their lethal attack to beat teams consistently. Since a few recent losses to Minnesota, Vegas has now won four games in a row. During this win streak, Mark Stone has done more than his fair share of offensive production. He now has a total of 34 points this season and leads Vegas in this category. His 24 assists also leads the Golden Knights, while he has also added 10 goals. During the mentioned winning streak, Stone has six points in four games. He has at least one point in all four games and at least two in two of these games. In two games against the Kings, Stone also has three points. With this plus-money price, we will look for him to do more than enough to cash this prop.
