The Penguins vs Capitals series got off to the exciting start that we were hoping with a great battle that the Capitals won in overtime.
Hopefully that is a good sign for that series and nothing separates the teams throughout it and we get a lot of awesome games. Great watching that one – two fantastic teams playing and it should be a heck of a series.
Tonight we’ve got two games as the Blues vs Stars series and the Predators vs Sharks series kick off.
You can see our Blues vs Stars Series Predictions in yesterdays post and today we’re going to cover the Predators vs Sharks.
Predators vs Sharks Series Betting Tips:
Graeme: The Predators won a very hard fought series against the Ducks in Game 7. For whatever reason I just can’t find myself backing them though. Of all the teams left in the playoffs them winning the cup would be the biggest shock to me.
This season the Predators actually won 2 of the 3 games between the two with the Sharks only win being an overtime win.
I feel like I’m underestimating the Predators. They got two massive wins to start the series against the Ducks, and they clawed their way back to win the series. That’s two huge achievements. It seems like a lot of people are underrestimating the Predators too.
My heart isn’t fully in this one – but I’m going to take Predators to win and I’ll take them in 6 games.
Scott: The Preds held on and beat the Ducks in 7 games.
For me personally with the Hawks out, I’m rooting for the Sharks to win the Cup. I’m a fan of Joe Thornton.
The Sharks are motivated and just got rid of the Kings with ease in 5 games. They’re a deep team and their depth should get them through to the next round. The Preds have one of the best shutdown pairs in the NHL in Weber and Josi who should be on the Thornton line which is only going to allow the Sharks depth to shine through.

Playoff Notes from Sports Interaction:
Just wanted to quickly add that we had a chat with the online sportsbook Sports Interaction about the playoffs and the action so far. They said they saw a LOT of losing bettors who had backed the Blackhawks and the Kings – two of the most popular teams – to win the cup.
They said that the majority of the action right now is going on the Capitals and Penguins to win the cup. Capitals are +350 and Penguins are +375. More of the money is going on the Capitals however.
