Last night we had a “push” with the Over 5 goals in the Rangers/Bruins game. Some goals in the second half of the game led to a 2-2 tie and forced overtime to get the total to a push at 5.
The Kings scored two late goals to go up 2-0 in that series, but I still don’t mind where we are with our series play. Of course I would like to be up 2-0 or at least 1-1, but the Sharks have been the better team so far this series and heading home I think we will see them make it 2-2.
Tonight there is one game in the NHL and I’ve got a play going…
2 UNIT = Ottawa Senators @ Pittsburgh Penguins – SENATORS TO WIN (+180)
(Note: I’m risking 2.00 units to win 3.60 units)
Game 1 saw the Senators outshoot Pittsburgh 36-30, but the Penguins won 4-1. The score isn’t much of an indication of how close this series should end up being in my opinion. If you can remember in the first series the Penguins won the first game 5-0 but sat back ant dropped the second 4-3 to the Islanders at home. Ottawa was 2-1 on the road in Round 1 and I wouldn’t be surprised to see another win here. Craig Anderson has been great for the most part of this year and these playoffs, but had an off game in Game 1 letting in 4 goals (although they weren’t bad goals). He has the ability to steal a game, and tonight could be the night for that. I wanted to watch the first game of the series before pulling the trigger on Ottawa, and I think now is the time given the big +180 price tag. Take the Senators as big underdogs to win outright.
