Ice Hockey NHL: In-form goalies as a decisive factor

One of my NHL betting strategies rely on goalkeeper performances and I bet on teams that line-up their in-form goalie mixed with some other minor factors.

Official website of the NHL - - offers very easy statistics filtering and I use it to check on my betting strategy.

1. Go to stats center HERE - it's pre-set filter link and you don't have to change anything
You'll get this outcome:


💡What we look for - goalkeepers with at least 10 matches played, who regulary play at the time and who have good W-L record combined with high save %.

From table like this, I choose Jack Campbell (TOR), Sergei Bobrovsky (FLA), Frederik Andersen (CAR), Igor Shesterkin (NYR) and I keep an eye on John Gibson (ANA) and Andrei Vasilevskiy (TBL). These goalkeepers are showing the best performances or are on a good wave of wins thanks to their teams improved performances.

When the season get far, it's good to change filter to at least 20 matches played to get even more trustful results.

2. Choose specific matches, you don't need to bet on every match your goalkeeper plays

In the NHL, there are matches you'll want to skip. Teams normally go for a 4 game long trips where some are played in-between 24 hours window, these are the matches you need to skip. Schedule is sometimes too difficult for players to think about some betting strategies. But there are also matches where it's important not to skip the bet. When your goalkeeper and his team had two days of rest before the home game and the opponent is coming for mentioned fourth away match in a row after just 24 hours rest, that's when you go big with your bets!

The best part about this betting strategy is goalies are decisive factor in even matches and that's what brings the value, you just need to get as much info as you can and learn to work with all the info collected.

This betting strategy is just a basic hint of how you can think about betting on the NHL matches. This is just one of my ice hockey betting strategies but you need to remember there will always be goalies on fire who win many matches for their teams themselves. You just need to train your sense of picking the right goalkeeper and of course this needs you to keep an eye on the league and watch the action.

I wish you picking the best goalies possible if you ever try this strategy!
