NHL Bets of the Day 11/30/21
Arizona Coyotes at Minnesota Wild, 8:00 p.m. ET
Best Bet: Wild Moneyline (-380) at Caesars
Minnesota has had a great start to the season as it currently resides in first in the Central Division with a 14-6-1 record. The Wild’s process has been strong as they have 54% of the expected goals at 5v5, along with 54% of the actual goals, per MoneyPuck.
Kirill Kaprizov has been sensational yet again this season as he continues to show everyone why he’s one of the best hockey players on the planet. Through 21 games, Kaprizov already has 23 points and has rebounded after his slow start. He’s the real deal.
Ryan Hartman has also had an unusually strong year for Minnesota. He has 12 goals and 16 points in 21 games as his goal-scoring ability is through the roof this year.
Hartman is shooting 17.4%, which is well above his career average of 9.8%. Obviously, a regression to the mean is coming, but the longer it waits, the more he’ll keep scoring.
Cam Talbot has also given the Wild good goaltending this season as he’s saved two goals above expected off a .914 save percentage. It’s been said that all a contending team needs is average goaltending and Talbot has certainly done his part so far.

As for the Coyotes, it’s been a struggle for them at 5-15-2 this year, though they have won three of their last five games. The process is behind most of these results as Arizona has only 43.3% of the expected goals, plus 40.7% of the actual goals.
It’s been a painful season out in the desert and it’s only going to get worse before it gets better.
With how the Wild are playing lately, I’d expect them to take the victory here, despite Arizona being above .500 the last week. Make Minnesota your NHL pick of the day.

Carolina Hurricanes at Dallas Stars, 8:30 p.m. ET
Best Bet: Hurricanes Moneyline (-110) at Caesars
Carolina has been sensational this season as it sits atop the Metropolitan Division. There were questions about the Hurricanes coming in due to what they lost, especially at the goalie position, but those look to be answered.
Frederik Anderson has been rejuvenated in Carolina this year and has been one of the best goaltenders in the league. He’s fifth in the league in goals saved above expected with 12.3, and that goes off of a .932 save percentage and a 1.98 goals-against average. I do not think anyone saw that coming from Anderson, especially with how banged up he’s been the last couple of years.
The Hurricanes have also had their stars step up this season. Both Sebastian Aho and Andrei Svechnikov have 20 points (Aho leads the team in goals) and are more than living up to their current contracts. Aho has 3.1 points per 60 at 5v5, while Svechnikov has 3.6 points per 60. Both are two of the best marks league-wide.
Defensively, it’s been Tony DeAngelo leading the way with four goals and 19 points in the team’s 20 games. He’s always been known for his offense, but I don’t think anyone saw “this” coming.
The Hurricanes travel to Dallas to take on a Stars team that’s struggled this season but has really turned it on as of late. They’ve won four straight and five of their last six and have also only given up five combined goals in their last four games.
The Stars are known for their defensive work, which is evidenced by a 2.1 goals against per 60. They don’t give up a lot of scoring chances each game and that’s allowed them to climb back into the playoff chase.
Joe Pavelski leads all forwards on the team in points with six goals and 14 points in 19 games. He also has a 2.7 points per 60 to go along with it. The older he gets, the better he plays.
Miro Heiskanen has continued to show why he’s the team’s top defender now that John Klingberg is a bit older. He has 15 points and a 1.9 points per 60, which is good for a defenseman.
The Canes are going to come into this matchup ticked off after losing to Washington on Sunday, and with how dominant they’ve been this season, I can’t see them losing a second game in a row here.
