Best player prop bets for Monday's NHL slate: Toffoli to help eliminate Winnipeg
We’ve got a two-game slate for Monday’s NHL card, but there are still plenty of opportunities to find some value. Right now, we’re going to be focusing on NHL 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.
Jean-Gabriel Pageau over 1.5 shots on goal (-136)
The Bruins vs. Islanders series has been about as expected as neither team has given an inch. Tied at two games apiece, the Boston Bruins will return to their home ice, looking to put the New York Islanders on the brink of elimination. The Islanders however, will likely not go quietly, as seen by the fact that they have already won a game in Boston. Tonight we are going to back an Islanders player who has contributed a ton this series, Jean-Gabriel Pageau. Instead of taking a points prop, we are just going to back Pageau to put some shots on goal. He will need only two as well, a number he has surpassed in three of the four games. Pageau is averaging 3.25 shots on goal in the series, so backing this prop will be our play.

Tyler Toffoli Over 0.5 Points (-114)
The Winnipeg Jets look lost in this series and will have a quick turnaround to avoid elimination in Game 4. Our prop cashed last night with Blake Wheeler managing to fire three shots on goal even in a 5-1 loss. Tonight we will switch to the Montreal side as we believe they will complete the sweep. The player in focus will be Tyler Toffoli and we will be backing him to have at least one point. Toffoli has recorded at least one point in all three games so far, and the Canadiens need him at his best if they are going to send the Jets home for the summer. Given how dominant Montreal has been in this series, backing Toffoli to have a point will be our play.
