After only a two-game slate on Friday, we are in store for a massive 10-game schedule on Saturday. The action starts at 3:00 p.m. ET, but here we are going to look to the games being played at night. We are going to focus on the player props and will be looking for guys to step up for their teams. Make sure you also check out our picks on the side and total for every game as well.

Anders Lee Over 2.5 Shots on Goal (-148)

The New York Islanders are having a decent season, though they are likely to run into a buzz saw with Boston on Saturday. Because the Bruins have a solid defense, we are going to expect a rather low scoring game. This is still likely to lead to plenty of shots on goal, especially if the Islanders go down early. There is one player in particular that we expect to have several shots and that is Anders Lee. He is leading his team with 42 shots on goal this season. In 12 games, that averages out to about 3.5 shots on goal per game. This sits a full point above our prop total, so we like him to be very active. Lee has surpassed this total in nine of New York’s 12 games, including seven games in a row. Because of that, we will back this over.

Patrick Kane Over 1.5 Points (+132)

As it stands, Patrick Kane is doing a ton for this Chicago Blackhawks team, that being a reason why we like him to find several points on Saturday night. Kane leads the team with 20 points. Breaking it down further, he has 13 assists and seven goals. Compared to the rest of the league, his point total ranks fourth, his assists rank tied for fifth and his goals rank tied for 11th. Needless to say that Kane is having a fantastic season. He is coming off a three-point game against this same Columbus team, so we like his chances to have another productive night. Of course, the rest of the Blackhawks are going to have to convert on the chances Kane give them. Still, it is not too much to ask for Kane to find at least one assist and one goal, so we will back the over here on his point-prop.

Brock Boeser Over 0.5 Goals (+200)

While Vancouver is not an elite team, they are getting plenty of offensive production from one guy in particular and a guy that we like on Saturday. That being Brock Boeser, who is the leading goal scorer for Vancouver. He scored in their most recent game and now has a five-game points streak. Vancouver’s offense has done very little recently, making it more likely that Boeser will try to shoulder the responsibility of getting his team on the board. For the second leading scorer in the entire league, this is a very generous price, so we will take a shot on Boeser scoring in back to back games against the same opponent.
