Well these playoffs so far have just been AMAZING. And a quick look across the board at the results and you can see just how close each and every series is.
Last night was a good night of hockey. Boston won easily against the Leafs and now lead the series 2-1. The Rangers won at home and now trail the Caps 2-1. Detroit beat the Ducks 3-2 in OT to tie the series at 2 games a piece as did the Kings beating the Blues 4-3.
Tonight though is going to be better than last night as these series seem to have so much more intensity and drama surrounding them. Will the Blackhawks bounce back from their last games loss and beat the Wild? Will the Islanders be able to hold off the Penguins and tie the series? Can the Sharks win to complete their sweep of the Canucks? All of these are going to be fantastic games. But the Game of the night and by far the best series of the playoffs so far has got to be the Habs and Sens! What a great series this has turned out to be and if last game is any indication then we are in for an amazing game.
For those who missed the action from last game here it is:
But lets get to the NHL Playoffs betting tips for Tuesday May 7th
Canadiens vs Senators: Canadiens To Win
After getting rocked 6-1 by the Senators and the full on line brawl that happened on Sunday this game is going to be crazy.
It all started with Lars Eller being knocked out of game one and being sent to the hospital after which Sens Coach Paul MacLean referred to Raphael Diaz, the player who sent the suicide pass to Eller, as “Number 61” and also was unsure of the name of the player who got knocked out and sent to the hospital. After the Game Habs forward Brandon Prust called MacLean a “Fat Walrus” then ,as you can see above, this happened last game.
You have got to think that the Habs will have a good bounce back game and tie the series up at 2 games a piece. Head to Bovada(USA) or Bodog(Canada) or http://www.SportsInteraction.com for everyone else and bet that the Canadiens will beat the Sens for 2.20 betting odds.
Penguins vs Islanders: Goal Before 9:30
I have been surprised by the Islanders so far this playoffs and this has turned out to be a great series. And if the first 3 games are any indication, then this bet that a goal WILL be scored before 9:30 of the first should be a no brainer.
Game 1 a goal was scored by the Penguins at 3:30 of the first period, the 2nd game a goal was scored by the Penguins at 0:43 of the first period and in the 3rd game a goal was scored by the Islanders at 1:43 of the 1st period.
Canucks vs Sharks: Canucks To Win
I have to admit that of all the series so far this one has easily been the biggest surprise and one that we for sure didn’t see happening. You would have to think that the Canucks will win this game and avoid the sweep but then again I didn’t think that the Sharks would be up 3-0 so who knows what will happen. I think the Canucks will win this game and make a series of this.
