Final Two East Conference Series’ Get Underway

Posted by Don Melrose on 5/1/2013 7:56:32 PM

Four Eastern Conference teams had to wait the extra two days to get underway, and while these teams can’t wait to hit the ice there is no doubt there will be some nerves heading in to game one. The Montreal Canadiens and Washington Capitals have heard the critics doubt their chances against the Ottawa Senators and New York Rangers respectively, and will look to address them on home ice for game one. Meanwhile on the west coast, the Los Angeles Kings are looking to bounce back after a brutal game one loss to the St. Louis Blues that snapped a seven-game online sports betting win streak in the series dating back to last year’s playoffs.

Eastern Conference Quarterfinal
(7) Ottawa Senators @ (2) Montreal Canadiens
Thursday, 7:00 PM ET
Game 1 – Series tied 0-0

The Canadiens managed to finish with the second-best record in the East, but that is still being overlooked because of the fact that they were so bad down the stretch. It is important to remember this Montreal team finished with 63 points, and had twice as many regulation wins as losses during the regular season. The Senators played them well and managed the split in the season series, but it will be tough going in to the Bell Centre and stealing game one. Craig Anderson has been excellent for Ottawa all year, and will need to perform at an elite level opposite of Carey Price for the Canadiens in order to steal a win in the series opener. Price was one of the main reasons Montreal struggled down the stretch, but you can bet he will be ready for game one.

NHL Betting Pick: Montreal Canadiens - 140

Eastern Conference Quarterfinal – Game 1
(6) New York Rangers @ (3) Washington Capitals
Thursday, 7:30 PM ET
Game 1 – Series tied 0-0

The Capitals were the hottest team in the NHL down the stretch, with Alex Ovechkin a big reason why as he earned 1st Star of the Month honors and stole the Rocket Richard trophy with a total 32 goals. Ovechkin and the offense will need to step up big time versus Henrik Lundqvist and the Rangers in the playoffs for the fourth time in the last five years, and this team is ready to do exactly that. 23-year old netminder Braden Holtby took a step forward this sports betting season and was much more consistent, so look for him to be the unsung hero of game one for Washington.

NHL Betting Pick: Washington Capitals - 130

Western Conference Quarterfinal
(5) Los Angeles Kings @ (4) St. Louis Blues
Thursday, 9:30 PM ET
Game 2 – Blues lead 1-0

The way the Kings lost game one is something they will look to put behind them in a hurry, and now that St. Louis got that first one they may stumble. Los Angeles had won seven-straight in the online sportsbook series dating back to last year’s playoffs, and was in position to make it eight with a four-minute power play on which Jonathan Quick turned the puck over to Alex Steen behind his net for the winning goal. Quick is among the most competitive and passionate players in the league and will bounce back, and the Kings will salvage an important road split with a game-two win.

NHL Betting Pick: Los Angeles Kings + 120
