NHL picks for Friday, March 24, 2017

It’s a light night in the NHL with only four games taking place, so that means it’s slim pickings for anyone looking for value in the lines. There’s one game that might be worth a look, however.

San Jose Sharks -152 at Dallas Stars

The Sharks haven’t been at the top of their game lately, and you know they’d like to shore things up here in the last couple of weeks of the season. Typically you’d be hesitant to back a team starting its backup goaltender, but Aaron Dell hasn’t been your typical backup this season, posting a 1.85 GAA and a .936 save percentage. The Stars’ backup, meanwhile, is Antti Niemi, who has stumbled his way to a 3.35 and .892. The Sharks look good in this spot.
