NHL Picks for May 8th


Last night we had the UNDER 5 goals in the Capitals/Rangers game and saw the Rangers tie it up with 6 seconds left to force a “push” with a 3-2 final score.  That was tough to take being 6 seconds away from a win, but being a push it wasn’t too bad.  We also saw our series play on Nashville come to end as they lose the series 4-1 to the Coyotes.  That one was a little tougher as the Predators outshot the Coyotes big time but Mike Smith has just been too good.  I thought Rinne would match his play in that series but it didn’t happen.  It will be interesting to see where the Kings/Coyotes series line opens up at.

One play tonight…

New Jersey Devils @ Philadelphia Flyers – OVER 5.5 GOALS (+140)
(Note: I’m risking 1 unit to win 1.40 units)

Tonight we see a Game 5 between the Flyers and the Devils in Philadelphia as the Flyers look to stay alive.  I am continuing to play the OVER in this series again tonight even with Giroux out.  With the way this series has gone I think +140 is a great price on the OVER again tonight.  We’ve seen totals of 7, 5, 7, and 6 so far this series.  In Sunday’s game we needed an empty net goal to hit the OVER, but there were a ton of scoring chances throughout the game.  Take the OVER again.
