A nice 3 UNIT “Game of the Week” WINNER on the DEVILS last night!
New jersey went up 3-0 on the Rangers before eventually winning 4-1 with an added empty net goal. The Devils were in control for the whole game, and the Rangers didn’t beat Brodeur until about 5 minutes left in the game.
That broke through a rough stretch and sets us up heading into the last few games of Round 3 and then into the Stanley Cup Finals. Tonight’s 1 unit play is below…
Los Angeles Kings @ Phoenix Coyotes – KINGS TO WIN (-125)
(Note: I’m risking 1.25 units to win 1 unit)
The Kings come into this game in Phoenix up in the series 3-1 and would nothing more to close it out and lock up a spot in the Stanley Cup Finals against either the Rangers or the Devils. Los Angeles has gone undefeated on the road to this point of the playoffs with their 7-0 record away from home and I think that continues tonight as they finish of the Coyotes. The Kings are 11-2 in the postseason and have been in control for most of this series. Mike Smith had to stop 36 shots in Game 4 to extend the series as Los Angeles outshot the Coyotes 36-21. The Kings have outshot Phoenix in all 4 games to date, and have outplayed them all around. Mike Smith stole the Coyotes one game, but I don’t think he can steal another one with Jonathan Quick playing just as well between the pipes. Los Angeles closes out the series tonight – take the Kings to win.
