Well both of the lower seeded teams won last night in what turned out to be a an exciting night of hockey which has been par for the course during these playoffs.
The Red Wings beat the Blackhawks 4-1 and the series is now at 2-1 for the Hawks. But for the Hawks their 1 goal came from Patrick Kane and it was his first of the playoffs so if he starts rolling then this is a good thing for the Blackhawks and their fans.
The Sharks got their first win of the series with a 2-1 OT win over the Kings to bring the series to 2-1 for the Kings. After slamming into the boards awkwardly, Logan Couture left the game in the 2nd period only to return and score the game winner in overtime.
2 games today. First at 3:00est its the Rangers vs The Bruins in game 2 with the series at 1-0 for the Bruins. There has been 3 days for both teams to get some rest which was needed after the game one battle that needed 15 minutes of overtime to be settled . Then at 7:30 its game 3 of the Penguins – Senators series with the Sens in desperate need of a win trailing 2-0 in the series. But good news for the Sens as Jason Spezza is scheduled to make his return. The Sens best forward was limited to 5 games this season due to a back injury and will provide the Sens a major boost in both skill and morale.
Here are the NHL Betting Tips for Sunday May 19th
Rangers vs Bruins: Rangers To Win
Game 1 was a great close game with extra time needed for the Bruins to come out on top. I expect the Rangers to come out flying in this game and if they can get their powerplay together then this game should have them come out on top.
This series looks like it could go the distance as both teams play a similar style of hockey so as fans we could be in for a treat of a series. But the Rangers have already beat out the Capitals who were at that point the hottest team in the NHL. It took the Bruins 7 games to beat the Leafs who in my opinion aren’t near as deep and solid of a team as the Rangers
Penguins vs Senators: Goal Before 9:30
We seem to keep betting this during this series and we seem to keep winning. The Sens are on home ice and have Spezza back so with their fans behind them and the return of their best forward this game may be high scoring. But their will be a goal scored early.
Penguins vs Senators: Senators To Win
Game 2 was much closer with the Penguins winning 4-3. Like mentioned above their are many things working in favor for the Sens and I really like their chances in this one.
Crazy home fans and Spezzas return will have the Sens coming out victorious in this game.
