Lower Seeds Look To Swing Home Advantage In Quarterfinal Series’

Posted by Don Melrose on 5/2/2013 7:27:50 PM

The NHL playoffs are underway and before the turn, the lower seeds will get one more shot at scoring a road win and swinging the momentum in their respective series. The San Jose Sharks took a bite out of the Vancouver Canucks’ chances with a 3-1 win in game one on Wednesday night, but the New York Islanders and Minnesota Wild came up short in their sports betting series’ and will look to bounce back on Friday night.

Eastern Conference Quarterfinals
New York Islanders @ Pittsburgh Penguins
Friday, 7:00 PM ET – Game 2
Penguins lead 1-0

The Islanders showed little life in a 5-0 loss to Pittsburgh to open the series, but the team isn’t getting down on itself one bit heading in to game two. Friday night will be another chance for New York to steal an important road win and swing home ice in their favor, and there is still a lot of hockey to play. The Penguins did everything right in game one and Marc-Andre Fleury made several nice stops en route to a 26-save shutout. Fleury will face a much tougher test in game two, and with James Neal joining Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby on the shelf following an injury in game one, the Islanders have a shot at scoring the online betting upset.

NHL Betting Pick: New York Islanders + 150

Western Conference Quarterfinals
Minnesota Wild @ Chicago Blackhawks
Friday, 9:30 PM ET
Blackhawks lead 1-0

Minnesota might actually have the tougher time trying to bounce back after losing game one, especially if Niklas Backstrom isn’t able to make the start. Backstrom is listed as day-to-day, and the Wild have recalled Darcy Kuemper to back up Josh Harding. Harding was excellent in game one and nearly helped Minnesota steal the win, but it will be much tougher this time around with the Blackhawks looking to open things up on offense. The Wild don’t have the firepower to keep up with Chicago if they o get to Harding early, and it the Madhouse on Manhattan will be rocking again if they get a couple of early goals.

NHL Betting Pick: Chicago Blackhawks - 180

Western Conference Quarterfinals
San Jose Sharks @ Vancouver Canucks
Friday, 10:00 PM ET
Sharks lead 1-0

There were a number of online sportsbook experts that felt the price was too good to pass up when the Sharks were listed at + 140 to win game one, and they made the right decision going with their gut. Those odds will be even better in game two, and once again they won’t be shying away. The Canucks are expected to come out with a much better effort after they were dominated in game one, but the final score from that contest was not a true indication of how the game went. San Jose dominated the play for most of the game and really won the physical battles, making life miserable for the Vancouver forwards. That will be the case again on Friday night, and with Roberto Luongo making his second-consecutive start in place of the injured Cory Schneider it’s unreasonable to expect anything less than another Sharks’ upset.

NHL Betting Pick: San Jose Sharks + 150
