Golden Knights vs Panthers Game 4 Props: Eichel Lends a Helping Hand

We've got ourselves a series now that the Panthers secured their first victory over the Knights in Game 3 of the Final. Matthew Tkachuk and Carter Verhaeghe played the heroes on Thursday, but our NHL betting picks have found value elsewhere for prop plays.

The Florida Panthers didn’t have their greatest performance in Game 3, but in their biggest game of the year, they were able to claw their way back late before eventually winning in overtime. Matthew Tkachuk and Carter Verhaeghe came up clutch yet again, giving the Panthers an opportunity to tie this series up at 2-2 on Saturday night. 

The Panthers were able to feed off of the crowd at FLA Live Arena, and the fans will be just as rowdy for Game 4. The Vegas Golden Knights scored both of their goals on the power play, giving them six goals on the man advantage through the first three games of the series. But if the Panthers can play more disciplined, I’m not quite sure if the Golden Knights will find the back of the net many times. 

I am counting on Bobrovsky to continue to show up in a big way yet again, and Brandon Montour to boost the team offensively from the back end. On the flip side, I expect Jack Eichel to keep up his strong play for the Golden Knights.

Golden Knights vs Panthers Game 4 props

Brandon Montour became a new father on Sunday after his wife gave birth to a baby boy, and that was able to spark his play in Game 3 on home ice against the Golden Knights

Montour got the game's opening goal, and he has been one of Florida’s most noticeable players the entire playoffs. Despite being pointless in his previous 10 games, Montour had been very successful at generating shots on goal. He had three in Game 3, and throughout the playoffs, he is leading all defenseman with 70 shots on goal in 19 games played. 

In his last five outings, Montour has generated 14 shots on goal, and he is the quarterback of the first power play unit for the Panthers. In a huge game for Florida, I have a lot of faith that Montour will get more than 3.5 shots on goal.

Pick: Montour Over 3.5 Shots On Goal (+130)

Covers NHL betting analysis

Jack Eichel has been doing everything for Vegas in this postseason, especially in this most recent stretch of games. Eichel has recorded 10 assists in his last 10 games, and six assists in his last five. 

Eichel is currently tied for the most points on the Golden Knights, tallying six goals and 17 assists in 20 games played thus far this postseason. He is coming off of a very strong first three games of this series, tallying five assists in that span.

On the road, Eichel has recorded three goals and seven assists in nine games, and he has proven that he is the guy that drives this offense. 

This is a massive contest for the Golden Knights as they are trying to take a 3-1 series lead, which would give them the opportunity to win the Stanley Cup on home ice in Game 5. If they lose Game 4, Florida is right back in this series and it is fully up for grabs.

Everything starts and ends with Eichel for the Golden Knights, and he has tallied an assist in every game in this series thus far. I think he will continue that success in this one.

Pick: Eichel Over 0.5 Assists (+100)

Sergei Bobrovsky has arguably been the Panthers' most important player throughout the playoffs, and he showed exactly why in Game 3. 

The Golden Knights were outstanding offensively in Games 1 and 2, but they weren’t able to find that back of the net at even strength in the previous meeting.

Despite not having a great overall series thus far, Bobrovsky has been absolutely unreal in the playoffs, boasting a record of 12-4 and skating to a .925 SV% along with a 2.46 GAA.

If the Panthers are going to walk away with another win, Bobrovsky is going to have to put on a very similar performance to the one we saw in Game 3, where he only allowed two goals and produced a .926 SV%. 

The Golden Knights are currently averaging 30 shots on goal per game, and in this series, they have been generating 29.67 per contest. Game 3 was the least amount of shots on goal that we have seen for both teams, but with Game 4 being extremely pivotal, I believe that the Golden Knights will throw as many pucks on Bobrovsky as they can. 

That being said, I like Bobrovsky's chances of shutting them down once again.

Pick: Bobrovsky Over 27.5 Saves (-120 at BetMGM)
