After a massive Tuesday night slate, much of the NHL playoff picture is taking shape. This leaves varying motivation among teams for the last few days of the season. However, not all seeds are set in stone and some individual players are still striving for milestones. Let’s take a look at some skaters on the Dallas Stars and Winnipeg Jets. Along with our player props, be sure to check out our full game previews for tonight’s matchups.

Jason Robertson over 0.5 goals (+120)

Stars winger Jason Robertson has been an absolute stud this season. He demonstrated his talent last night in Dallas’ biggest game of the season by scoring both of their goals. They played the Golden Knights in what was essentially an elimination game for the last wild-card spot in the Western Conference. Robertson helped the Stars get the win, but technically they did not clinch. It was not a regulation win, so the Knights are 4 points back. However, with just 2 games left for each team, the Stars are sitting pretty. The fact that Dallas still wants this win on Wednesday night also plays into Robertson’s prop. 

He and the Stars will be as motivated as ever to clinch their spot tonight knowing that they are taking on a terrible Coyotes team. Better yet, Arizona is on the second night of a road back-to-back. Their goaltending was already one of the worst in the NHL, and now only diminishes with a backup goaltender. It’s not as if Robertson needs any more help. He has 40 goals on the season and 77 points overall in 70 games. He may not reach that coveted 50-goal season, but he has had hat-tricks in back-to-back games this season. He got only 2 goals last night, but expect another dominant performance from the youngster.

Kyle Connor over 1.5 points (+140)

The Jets have been eliminated from playoff contention, but Kyle Connor still has plenty of motivation. He’s looking to register the first 100-point season of his young career. He may be even more frustrated at the fact he missed a few games due to health and safety protocol, which would have made this goal more feasible. He has 89 points on the year with 3 games left to play. While it may seem like a stretch for him to reach 100 points, it’s not too far-fetched.

Wednesday night’s game will be against the Flyers, who have been a bottom-5 goaltending team much of the year, and their last remaining games are against the Flames and Kraken. Calgary has had the division wrapped up and has been starting backup goaltender Dan Vladar recently. The Kraken are, well, the Kraken. These matchups provide plenty of hope for Connor to reach the century mark. It all begins with the Flyers tonight. Connor has faced them only once this season and recorded a goal. This meeting will be in Winnipeg, where he and the Jets are even more comfortable. Connor has had multiple-point games 26 times this year, and is in line for another on Wednesday.
