NHL Tuesday player props: Heiskanen, Giroux to take fire

We are coming off yet another successful night with shot props, as Victor Hedman and Zach Werenski each went over their totals of 2.5 on Monday.

Those wins pushed our record to 8-1 on the year for shot props. We'll look to keep the heater going during Tuesday's 11-game slate.

Miro Heiskanen over 2.5 shots (+115)

We targeted the Detroit Red Wings with our props on Monday and we're going right back to the well.

Detroit has allowed 62.23 shot attempts per 60 minutes of five-on-five play over the last 10 games. That ranks them 29th in the NHL over that span.

They're having a tough time in their own zone and I don't see that changing in the latter half of back-to-back road games.

Heiskanen leads the Dallas Stars in shot attempts and shots on goal this season. He's recorded at least three shots on target in seven of his last nine games and we're getting plus money on him to do it again against a fatigued team bleeding looks.

Take the value and back a great player in a great spot.

Claude Giroux over 2.5 shots (-105)

The Calgary Flames are a good defensive side. But, even after adjusting for that, this number seems out of line.

Claude Giroux has averaged 3.15 shots on goal per game this season. His best work has come on home soil, where he's been remarkably consistent as a shooter. Philadelphia's captain has recorded at least three shots on goal in five of six contests at home.

The Flyers are fully rested and can get their best weapons in favorable matchups, while the Flames are playing their fourth road game in six nights. They won't have their legs to try and neutralize opposing attacks.

Bonus round: Aaron Ekblad over 2.5 (-115). Ekblad is Florida's leader in shot attempts and shots per game. As mentioned in prior articles, the Islanders have struggled to limit shots, particularly against high-end defenders. Their opponent's No. 1 blue-liner has recorded at least three shots on goal in four consecutive games.
