Up 5.3 units on NHL Playoffs
Capitals came back to beat the Penguins in Pittsburgh. The Penguins fans wanna talk about how dirty Tom Wilson is (Wilson broke Aston-Reese’s jaw), I wanna talk about how nice that Ovi goal was. Crosby has done the “hit the puck in mid air for a goal” twice this season, but neither was a game-winner in the playoffs. Crosby and Ovi are both so damn good and I thoroughly enjoyed Game 3 last night. It was a hard fought game, but I wouldn’t get too comfortable if I were the Caps. I wonder if Pittsburgh fans hate Tom Wilson or Ovi more… The Jets came all the way back from a 3-0 deficit to beat the Predators in Winnipeg. The Jets won the 2nd period 4-0. Tanev has scored in 4 straight games for Winnipeg. I think both the winning teams on Tuesday night showed some resiliency and fight that they have not had in years past.. only time will tell if it will be enough for them to meet their Stanley Cup dreams.
Past two nights I have been fading the public and betting the “underdogs” to some small gains. Tonight I am just betting heavy on who I think are the better teams.
Bruins ML at -134 for 4 units. Bruins back at home. The Bruins had to beat the refs and the Lightning in Game 2. The officiating wasn’t why they lost, but it did not help. The Bruins have to play better and they will at home. The Bruins won both games at home against Tampa in the season series. Marchand and the Bruins know they have home ice advantage in a best of 5 now, and they won’t give that up.
Knights ML at +120 for 2 units. I am not betting against Fleury. San Jose has just given up too many power plays and will need to clean that up. The Sharks say they are playing a lot better than the 7-0 defeat in Game 1.. not that hard to do. Knights have been better most of the season, but the Sharks have their backs against the wall. Should be an exciting game like the last two games, but if any team can pull away, I think it is the Knights.
