Sharks Cannot Afford To Fall In To 3-0 Series Hole Versus Kings

Posted by Don Melrose on 5/17/2013 6:05:33 PM

The San Jose Sharks had no problem blowing through the Vancouver Canucks with a four-game sweep in the opening round. One more loss to the Los Angeles Kings and they could be at risk of being swept themselves. The Sharks have dropped the first two games of their best-of-seven Western Conference Semi-Final round series against the Los Angeles Kings, and are now facing a must-win situation as the online sports betting series shifts back to San Jose Saturday.

Western Conference Semi-Final Round
Detroit Red Wings @ Chicago Blackhawks
Saturday, 1:00 PM ET – Game 2
Blackhawks lead 1-0

The sense of urgency will be just as strong for the Red Wings on Saturday, even though they are only facing a 1-0 series deficit after losing game one 4-1. Detroit was tied with the Blackhawks through the first 48 minutes of action, but Chicago scored three-unanswered goals and finished off with a dominant online sportsbook win. The Red Wings’ aren’t in a must-win situation just yet, but they won’t want to head back to Detroit down two games against a Blackhawks’ team that has been dominant all season. Jimmy Howard kept them in game one with 38 saves, and the Red Wings will need to do a much better job of protecting him in game two. That could take away from their offensive ability, and with Corey Crawford enjoying an excellent year to date, that’s bad news for hockey fans in Detroit. Look for thee Red Wings to keep this one close early on once again, but don’t expect them to steal one on the road against a Blackhawks’ team that has been dominant at home all season.

NHL Betting Pick: Chicago Blackhawks - 160
Western Conference Semi-Final Round
Los Angeles Kings @ San Jose Sharks
Saturday, 9:00 PM ET – Game 3
Kings lead 2-0

Generating offense will be among the biggest keys for the Sharks, as they managed to score three in game two and held a brief 3-2 lead before conceding two late powerplay goals in a losing cause. Discipline will also be a major issue after San Jose failed to keep the Kings’ power play in check, and while the suspension of Raffi Torres might help the Sharks to stay out of the box, it also means they will have even more trouble matching what Los Angeles does physically. Antti Niemi was in the conversation for a Vezina trophy nomination for most of the year, and now is the time for him to prove that he belongs in that debate. San Jose cannot afford to lose on home ice and go down three-games-to-none in the series, so look for them to throw everything they have left in the tank at the Kings and steal a crucial online sports betting win. The Sharks may not be able to win this series, but they won’t go down easily with so much on the line.

NHL Betting Pick: San Jose Sharks - 130
