We started off the playoffs with a loser last night, as we had the OVER 5 in the Rangers/Caps Game 1. Alexander Semin scored in overtime to lift the Capitals to a 2-1 victory. Lundqvist stopped 31 of 33 shots and Neuvirth picked up the OT win stopping 24 of 25 shots faced. The OVER didn’t look good for most of the game, as neither team could net one early.
Lets get right back with a winner here tonight as the other 3 series’ get underway.

NHL Betting Picks for Thursday, April 14th:
Buffalo Sabres @ Philadelphia Flyers – SABRES TO WIN (+140)
The Flyers are limping into the postseason this year going 5-10 in their last 15 games, while the Sabres played great hockey down the stretch (10-5 in their last 15 games and just one regulation loss in their last 12 as they went 9-1-2 over that span). The Sabres enjoyed playing on the road this season, as they went 22-13-6 away from home and were 19-14 as road underdogs where they actually outscored their favored opponents. The Flyers were 22-12-7 on home ice this year. I’ll give the edge to Ryan Miller in net here, as Flyers rookie Sergei Bobrovsky went just 7-7-5 in his last 22 games. These two teams split their four meetings this year, with the Sabres winning the last two on April 8th and March 5th (with the later being a 5-3 win in Philadelphia). Buffalo holds the advantage with special teams overall on the season, and finished the last 5 games of the season converting 30.8% of their powerplays, compared to Philly’s 17.6%. One of the biggest keys to the Flyers playoff success last year was Chris Pronger, who is a horse on the backend for them. Pronger is listed as out for Game 1 of this series with a hand injury. The Sabres match up well with the Flyers and I think this is the best price we are going to get on them this series. Take it while you can with Pronger out as an added bonus. I’m on the SABRES on the moneyline at a generous +140.
