It wasn’t that long ago where if you came across an NHL game with a total of five goals, it would almost be an auto bet. If both teams could score two goals apiece, you had a good chance to get at least one more goal, and at worst, your wager would result in a push.
With sports leagues around the world in favor of more scoring, it’s no surprise to see the same spill over into the NHL. You can now see totals at 6.5 and as high as seven in some spots, similar to what we saw in the playoff bubble last season.
When the puck finally drops on the NHL season, you want to pay close attention to which trends are prevalent. Will it be plenty of goals early on, or will the offenses lag behind the defenses early on? Those are the themes that you would want to keep an eye on.
