Game 2 is set to get underway in the Second Round of the 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs for two different matchups on Thursday. Despite the small slate, there are still some great player props to attack.

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 PrizePicks Player Props

Corey Perry Over 1.5 Shots on Goal

Lightning at Panthers, 7 p.m. ET

Following their 4-1 win on Tuesday, the Tampa Bay Lightning will look to steal another win from the Florida Panthers and return home with a 2-0 series lead. With the injury to star forward Brayden Point, coach Jon Cooper moved Corey Perry up onto the first power play unit in Game 1.

Perry did not disappoint as he scored with that unit and added an assist later in the game on the go-ahead goal. Finishing the game with two points and four shots on goal, the experienced veteran was able to take advantage of the increased opportunity and I believe he will find similar success in Game 2.

I would not play this total at anything higher than 1.5.

Jordan Binnington Over 31.5 Saves

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

Following their 3-2 overtime loss to the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday, the St. Louis Blues will look to even up the series before traveling back home for Game 3. After successfully hitting this prop in that game, I am going back to the well once again.

Since taking over the goaltending duties prior to Game 4 of their First Round series against the Minnesota Wild, Jordan Binnington has been sensational between the pipes for St. Louis. Over his four starts since then, Binnington boasts an outstanding 0.944 save percentage and 1.94 goals allowed average.

Binnington flew over this total in Game 1 as he stopped 51 of 54 shots. The Avalanche dominated the pace of play in that game, and I suspect we will see a similar result in Game 2.

I would play this total up to 32.

Nathan MacKinnon Over 5.5 Shots on Goal

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

I am going back to the well on another player prop that I hit on Tuesday as Nathan MacKinnon has led the charge for Colorado’s offense all playoffs. This play has a good correlation with the Binnington prop to go over the total as the Avalanche will obviously need to fire shots on net for Binnington to get 32 or more saves.

There is no better player to help us get over that total in this game than Nathan MacKinnon. MacKinnon has now registered six or more shots on goal in each of the five playoff games the Avalanche have played this postseason, including eight shots on net in Game 1 against St. Louis.

I would not play this number at anything higher than 5.5.

Devon Toews Over 3 Shots on Goal

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

I am targeting another Avalanche player to go over his shot total as Devon Toews has been incredible for Colorado all season. Toews has registered three or more shots on goal in each of the five playoff games the Avalanche have played this postseason, including four shots on net in Game 1 against St. Louis.

Colorado continues to pepper shots on their opposition in the playoffs as they are averaging a league-leading 46 shots on goal per game. Until a team can prove to have the ability to slow down this offense, hitting the over on players’ shot totals is a good bet for the Avalanche.

I would not play this total if It jumps from 3 shots to 3.5.

Darcy Kuemper Under 2.5 Goals Allowed

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

The last play I am making in this game is for Colorado’s starting goaltender to go under this total. This play is more of a backing of Colorado’s defense than It is of Kuemper as the Avalanche blue line made life extremely difficult for the Blues in Game 1.

St. Louis’ offense was lost in Game 1 as they not only struggled to score against Colorado, but they barely were able to even get the puck in the offensive zone. Generating only 1.87 expected goals for (xGF), the Blues did not give Kuemper much to worry about.

In fact, the two goals St. Louis scored came off a bad turnover and catching Colorado on a line change. In all four of Kuemper’s appearances in net this postseason, he has gone under this total.

I would not play this number any lower than 2.5.
