Matthew Tkachuk over 3.5 shots on goal +125 (DraftKings)

Since joining the Panthers in an offseason trade, Tkachuk has been as advertised with six points in his first four games. He has 18 shots on goal during that period, averaging 8.75 shot attempts per game. He’ll get his first taste of the “Battle of Florida” tonight when the Panthers take on the Lightning, which should give him some extra motivation to play well in front of the home fans.

Steven Stamkos over 3.5 shots on goal +146 (FanDuel)

On the other side of this game, it’s hard to ignore what Steven Stamkos has done this season with six goals in four contests, averaging a shade over five shots on goal per game. Stamkos has always been a shoot-first player, but seems to be leaning on that ability even more to begin the season. In four games against Florida last season, Stamkos had 15 total shots on goal.

David Perron over 2.5 shots on goal -120 (BetMGM)

The Detroit Red Wings have been one of the better stories to begin this season and tonight, they’ll take on a dreadful Chicago Blackhawks team that is headed towards the draft lottery. Perron is averaging five shot attempts on goal per game with 10 of them hitting the target so far this year. This one is about the matchup for me as Chicago’s defence should allow Perron plenty of opportunities to get pucks on net.
