NHL Player Props Picks for Monday, May 23rd 2022

The NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs continue on Monday night, but there are just two games on the daily schedule. The Tampa Bay Lightning will try to eliminate the Florida Panthers with a win. The St. Louis Blues look to even up their series at home.

Single-game betting is available for both games on the schedule. You can also look at NHL player prop betting options. Here are five of the best player prop betting options on Monday night.

Jonathan Huberdeau Over 0.5 Goals (+260)

Panthers vs. Lightning Predictions

The Florida Panthers are just one loss away from elimination, and they are a desperate team heading into Monday night. Florida needs a spark on offense, and they need Jonathan Huberdeau to set the tone.

It’s never easy to predict that a player will score, but Huberdeau will get on the board in Game 4. Take the over 0.5 goals as Huberdeau scores to spark the Panthers.

Aleksander Barkov Over 3.5 Shots on Goal (+118)

Aleksander Barkov is another player that needs to step up for the Panthers. He should be aggressive on the offensive end as well. Barkov might not find his way into the scoring column, but he will do some damage on the offensive end.

The bet to make on Barkov is to take the over 3.5 shots on goal. He will have the puck on his stick often and put some pressure on the Lightning defense.

Nikita Kucherov Under 1.5 Points (-190)

Nikita Kucherov and the Tampa Bay Lightning continue to be clutch in the postseason, and they scored five goals in Game 3. Nikita Kucherov was once again right in the middle of the action. He continues to come up with big plays when his team needs him.

The Florida Panthers are a desperate team heading into Game 4. They will do all they can to slow down the Tampa Bay Lightning. Kucherov and his teammates won’t do a ton of scoring, and taking the under is the right play here.

Vladimir Tarasenko Over 2.5 Shots on Goal (-138)

Avalanche vs. Blues Predictions

The St. Louis Blues will be a desperate team on Monday night. They can’t fall into a 3-1 hole by losing Game 4. St. Louis is a team that has a history of coming up with a clutch win when needed. They have several players that know how to step up.

Vladimir Tarasenko is one of those players, and he will be aggressive on offense in this game. Look for Tarasenko to pepper the net all night long, as he will have at least three shots on goal.

Nazem Kadri Over 2.5 Shots on Goal (-164)

Nazem Kadri had one of the biggest plays of this entire series. However, it had nothing to do with a goal or a point. Kadri collided with Blues goaltender Jordan Binnington in Game 3. It will keep the goalie from being in this series again.

The Blues fans will let Kadri hear about it all night on Monday. However, that will make him turn up the level of his play. Kadri might not score a point in this game, but he will at least have three shots on goal.
