$FML has two picks for Saturday's NHL slate and they're both focused on a player for which the stars appear to have aligned.
@FastMoneyLabs' Saturday NHL Picks - 12/3
Kirill Kaprizov (MIN) vs. Anaheim Ducks
10-game point streak? Assist in 9 straight? Goal in each of his last 4? Parents in town. Coincidence? Or significant?
The Athletic recently speculated it’s the latter, and Kaprizov’s comments on the matter (both this year and last year) support it. The Russian native cherishes playing in front of his parents, but it was a rare event. That changed a few weeks ago when they arrived on temporary visas. Since then, he’s been on the ultimate heater.
Today, he gets a Ducks team he plucked for 2 goals on 9 shots last month — his 4th multi-point performance in their last 6 head-to-head meetings. He’s also tallied multiple points in each of his last 4 games overall.
Shots? Goals? Assists? Pick your poison. All project well. I’m going with 5+ Shots and 2+ Points!
