Can Pittsburgh Climb Back Into the Eastern Conference Finals?

Posted by Don Melrose on 6/5/2013 7:57:39 PM

Pittsburgh Penguins @ Boston Bruins – Wednesday (Boston leads 2-0)

Needless to say, the first two games of the NHL Eastern Conference finals that were played in Pittsburgh did not go the way that the Penguins wanted them to go. What caught the betting experts eyes was the fact that both games were complete domination by the Boston Bruins. At least the Los Angeles Kings looked like they had a chance at winning game three, despite getting blown out in game two of the Western Conference finals. But the way that the Kings handled business in game three could be an inspiration to the Penguins.

The Boston Bruins just keep rolling along and keep on looking for that next way to chase Pittsburgh goalie Tomas Vokoun from the nets. The online sports betting experts have watched the Bruins work harder than the Penguins, fight harder for the puck and take advantage of opportunities. Boston goalie Tuukka Rask has also had more than a hand in putting the Penguins down. As the Bruins head back home for game three, everything looks to be right on course and Boston is prepared to take a commanding 3-0 lead in this series.

Why the Penguins Will Win

The one thing that Pittsburgh has going for it is that it has its back against the wall. A team with that much talent and playing with desperation is bound to do great things. The betting sites know that Vokoun is going to have to come up big if Pittsburgh is going to win game three and stay in this series. To this point, Vokoun has been unable to handle the persistence of the Boston Bruins’ forwards. Vokoun will need to stand tall in his net and start to take away more of the Bruins’ scoring chances if Pittsburgh is going to come away with the win.

Why the Bruins Will Win

The Boston Bruins are at home and riding a wave of momentum that should be able to carry the team all the way to the Stanley Cup finals. Goaltender Tuukka Rask has shown that he can control his emotions and play strong for the Bruins in pressure situations. At this point, the Bruins are feeling more confidence than pressure, but Boston is taking nothing for granted. Boston will come out for game three in the same way it approached games one and two. The Bruins will come out hitting, skating and putting constant pressure on the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The Bottom Line

The Pittsburgh Penguins will try to use their speed and desperation to change the tide of this game. But the Boston Bruins have seen the worst that Pittsburgh can do and the Bruins pushed the Penguins aside as though Pittsburgh was not even there. Expect more domination from the Bruins in game three and results that will look much the same as the results from the first two games.

Pick: Boston Bruins
