The 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs could be over as of tonight.

The 5th and potentially final game takes place in Pittsburgh, with the Penguins taking on the Sharks. In the previous two games in Pittsburgh, the Penguins won both.

All of the games have been tight although the Penguins did win by 2 goals in the last one in San Jose, and you have to wonder if that’s going to be it for the Sharks. They had a great chance to get momentum on their side.

It’s going to be a very interesting one. Penguins have progressed through each round by winning the home game in every single final playoff game. The Sharks road form has been hit or miss and they have to come up big here.

Will they? Or are the Penguins taking home the cup?

Scott The Penguins have  a chance to win the Cup on home ice for the first time in team history.  I want the Sharks to win but the Penguins have momentum on their side.  The Sharks have been a strong road team and if they can regain their recent form then this could go their way.   If they win tonight that would turn the tides.  But with the Cup on the line and the Pens having a chance to win at home this looks to be their game to lose.  I hope I’m wrong on this but I have to go with the Penguins to win

Graeme: I also want the Sharks to win – but I just can’t see it. Over the course of this series only one team has really stood out which is the Pittsburgh Penguins. They look like…well…better. They just look better. They’re hungry, their team chemistry is at an all time high and everything is working out for them.

I hope I’m wrong and the Stanley Cup finals got extended – but the Penguins look like the winners. Penguins to win.

    Penguins penguins penguins.. That is all

    G&S u mean Pens ML or in regulation?

    I’ll join the group of wanting Sharks to win the cup but honestly, it’s not going to happen.

    But this is a game they can still win. To win the SCF in game 5 at home just seems too good to be true. Maybe im being emotional towards the Sharks, but i’ve also tried to look at this game as objectively as possible.

    If the Pens manage to pull through with a big win despite the Sharks fighting for their lives (and having improved slowly but stedily ever since game 1), i’ll be really surprised.

    At the same time though, Pens just have been flat out better, and it’s not like the Sharks haven’t given their all.

    Conclusion is.. I think it’ll be war out there. Pens will push but Sharks refuse to break.

    I’ll roll the dice with OT, as it also fits to what we saw in the first 2 games in Pittsburgh. And im hoping the Sharks can win it in the end. Just feels wrong to have the hockey season end already.

    Pittsburgh only RT or live ML… ML is so low that for me thats not enough value… I would take the sharks for a price of 2.60… thats insane , for a tight game

    my pick would be the Under 5 RT … I think it has good value… could be risky because I think there will be a time that it will go over, but idk I see both goalies so sharp… they both want it bad so I’ll still stick with that under

    And the fav loses at home again, another losing bet! I don’t get why home teams aren’t able to take advantage of home ice so often.
