Like I predicted just under a month past, Sidney Crosby has slowed down his scoring pace — significantly. In the time of the last update, the Penguins captain had been scoring on a ridiculous 23.2 percent of his shots but since then he has scored just three goals on 28 shots, dropping his shooting percentage to a 20 percent. Other men like Alex Ovechkin, Max Pacioretty and Brad Marchand have turned up the heat and have scored their way back in the goal-scoring race.
BetOnline has recognized Crosby’s cold streak and moved from his -285 chances into the +140 number where he sits. If you listened to me and place your cash on Mr. Ovechkin’s +550 worth, you would better thank me. The Great 8 has scored nine times since the turn of the calendar and has set himself back in great position to earn his fifth successive Maurice”Rocket” Richard Trophy along with his line was corrected to +205.
Along the Very Same lines as Ovi, we have the Little Ball of Hate, Brad Marchand. Marchy is among the most polarizing players because the likes of Sean Avery and Todd Bertuzzi roamed the ice but something his haters cannot deny — the guy can frigging score. He has popped 13 goals since the beginning of January and is beginning to give hope to people who followed my advice at the start of the season and place cash on the +2500 line for Marchand to lead the league in goals. He now has 23 also it seems like he’s just beginning to crank up the intensity knob. A problem with betting on the Bruins winger at the moment is that he’s one obvious slew foot from a lengthy suspension. He has gotten away with two iffy ones in the previous two months but a third could have him watching the action in the press box.
And we have Max Pacioretty of the Montreal Canadiens. Patches had a very bad start to his year, scoring just five goals in his first 24 games, but has since bulged the twine 19 times using 2 hat-trick performances. Max has had to step up offensively with many of those Habs’ first-choice wingers going down with injury and he has benefited immensely from the re-emergence of Alexander Radulov. Both have combined to give a huge chunk of Montreal’s crime and the majority of Patches’ goals this year have come from Rad-Dad helpers.
Also throwing their proverbial hats in the race are rookies Auston Matthews and Patrik Laine, who are neck and neck in the Calder Trophy conversation. They’ve 23 goals apiece and have surprised many with their NHL readiness. Laine is supplying more worth at +1600, even though enjoying fewer games than the man who travelled one spot ahead of him at the 2016 draft and that makes zero sense. The Finn has already proved he’s the natural goal scorer of the two and is beyond a shadow of a doubt going for a 50-a-year guy for the remainder of his career.
