Ouch. That’s gotta sting for the Habs and all of their fans. They played an amazing game only to lose in overtime.

These teams traded goals ending regulation tied 2-2. But it was Marty St. Louis who scored for the Rangers at 6:02 of the first overtime to win it. Now the Rangers hold a 3-1 lead in the series heading into game 5 in Montreal.

Tonight we have game 4 between the Blackhawks and the Kings. This is an incredibly important game for both teams. For the Hawks, with a win they would tie the series and make it a best of 3 with 2 of the remaining games being played in Chicago. For the Kings a win means they have a 3-1 strangle hold on the series and need only one more win to move onto the Stanley Cup Finals.

If you missed out on the Player Props over the last two days….ouch!! last night we bet and tipped that Carl Hagelin would score for unreal 4.40 odds. And it only took about 7 minutes for him to win this bet for us. This is great and after the night before where we tipped that Carter would score for the Kings, which he did, and Toews would score for the Hawks, he scored twice, we have made some awesome money off of these. Be sure to get in on the player prop bets over at Sports Interaction as we will be doing these bets for the rest of the playoffs.

Blackhawks vs Kings Betting Tips:

This is a crucial game for both teams. Not only have the Kings won 2 straight but they have found a way to take a 2-1 lead over a previously unbeatable team at home in the Hawks.

Now with the series 2-1 the Hawks have turned into the underdogs as evidence by the 2.05 odds for a Hawks win. This is a team that has been in these situations over the past and have found ways to win. So with those odds you almost have to take them for value alone.

As we have said in the other games in both series it’s a coin flip for the over/under, anytime you can get odds at or above 2.00 you should take them. Well for the Over tonight it’s 2.05. Game 1 had 4 goals but games 2 & 3 had 8 and 7. Gotta like the over if only for the value.
