  • With four Game 6s on Thursday night, our NHL analyst has five PrizePicks plays with value.
  • He likes five player prop overs varying from Shots On Goal to Assists.
  • Check out Tony Sartori's picks and analysis below.

Four different first-round series of the 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs roll into Game 6s on Thursday.

Below are my five best PrizePicks props for the slate. For those unfamiliar with PrizePicks flex plays, correctly predicting 5-of-5 props registers a 10x payout, 4-of-5 registers a 2x payout and 3-of-5 registers a 0.4x payout.

You can also take these plays and do smaller parlays with just two or three props for lower payouts.


What is PrizePicks? A daily fantasy operator — meaning they’re available in more states (31) than sports betting is! — PrizePicks offers a unique opportunity for action on player props in which you parlay two or more plays together.

NHL Player Props

Steven Stamkos Over 0.5 Assists

Maple Leafs at Lightning, 7:30 p.m. ET

The Tampa Bay Lightning look to even up the series at 3-3 following Tuesday’s 4-3 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs. While I hit the Justin Faulk prop on Tuesday, I missed the mark on this one but am giving it another stab in this matchup.

Despite not recording an assist in three straight games, the metrics suggest that the Palat/Stamkos/Kucherov line is due for more scoring. While this line has logged just two even-strength goals over the last two games, this line leads the Lightning in xGF.

I would not play this total if It jumps from 0.5 to 1.

Victor Hedman Over 0.5 Assists

Maple Leafs at Lightning, 7:30 p.m. ET

In a play that has a good correlation with the Stamkos prop, I like Hedman to grab at least one assist in this game. Not only are Hedman and Stamkos on the ice together a lot due to their large amount of ice time, but they also skate together on the first power-play unit.

Game 2 was the last game where Stamkos recorded an assist, and Hedman logged three in that contest. Stretching back into the regular season, Hedman has 21 assists over his last 13 games.

I would not play this number at anything higher than 0.5.

Justin Faulk Over 2.5 Shots On Goal

Wild at Blues, 9:30 p.m. ET

The St. Louis Blues look to advance to the next round as they host the Minnesota Wild in Game 6 following Tuesday’s 5-2 victory. We hit this prop on Tuesday, and I am going back to the well once again.

While Robert Bortuzzo and Nick Leddy returned to the lineup in Game 5, Faulk still logged over 25 minutes of ice time and went over this total. Faulk has now gone over this figure in three of the last four games and should have a good chance to do so once again with defensemen Marco Scandella and Torey Krug both questionable to play.

I would not play this total at anything higher than 2.5.

Kirill Kaprizov Over 0.5 Goals

Wild at Blues, 9:30 p.m. ET

I am targeting another player prop in this game as Kirill Kaprizov continues to be the most dynamic individual in this series thus far. Kaprizov has now scored in four straight games, logging seven goals over that span.

In this series, Kaprizov leads the Wild in both Shots On Goal and Expected Goals For (xGF). This game is obviously a must-win for Minnesota, so we should expect to see Kaprizov out there as much as possible and firing as many shots on net to give his team a chance to force a Game 7.

I would not play this number above 0.5.

Adrian Kempe Over 3.5 Shots On Goal

Oilers at Kings, 10 p.m. ET

The Los Angeles Kings look to advance to the next round as they host the Edmonton Oilers with a 3-2 series lead following Tuesday’s 5-4 overtime victory. Adrian Kempe was the hero of Game 5 as he scored the overtime winner, which capped off a three-point night.

Scoring two goals on nine shots, the Kings’ regular season goal leader finally broke the drought. Recording four or more Shots On Goal in four of the five games in this series thus far, Kempe should enter Game 6 with a ton of confidence and cross this number for us.

I would not play this total above 3.5.
