Senators Look To Put Canadiens On Ropes As Physical Series Continues Tuesday

Posted by Don Melrose on 5/6/2013 7:52:05 PM

The Ottawa Senators have beaten the Montreal Canadiens both on the score sheet and in the trenches, taking a two-games-to-one series lead in their best-of-seven Eastern Conference Quarterfinals series. The Senators will have a chance to take a commanding three-games-to-one series lead when they clash with the Canadiens on home ice again Tuesday, and with defenseman Eric Gryba set to return from a two-game suspension for his hit to the head Canadiens’ forward Lars Eller there is a good sports betting chance of seeing more fireworks.

Eastern Conference Quarterfinals
Montreal Canadiens @ Ottawa Senators
Tuesday, 7:00 PM ET – Game 4
Senators lead 2-1

Montreal is not a big team, and they become vulnerable when they are sucked in to these physical battles with online sportsbook opponents. The Canadiens were outhit by a wide margin in game three, and that made it that much more difficult to fight back when they conceded the early one-goal lead. Montreal will need to be more disciplined if it is going to have any chance at winning game four, and that means using its speed and skill to skate around the Ottawa defenseman rather than trying to go through them.

Craig Anderson has been the best player for the Senators so far in this series, and it will be on Carey Price to respond for the Canadiens with the kind of performance that has made him their best player all year. Getting traffic to the net and finding loose pucks will be important for Montreal as they try and get to Anderson, and that is something they did in game two but failed to show in game three. Gryba returning will be one of the big storylines, and with the Senators expecting somebody to go after him early, the focus for the Canadiens has on avoiding the physical stuff and getting their revenge on the score sheet.

NHL Betting Pick: Montreal Canadiens + 130

Eastern Conference Quarterfinals
Pittsburgh Penguins @ New York Islanders
Tuesday, 7:00 PM ET – Game 4
Penguins lead 2-1

The Islanders responded in a big way following their game-one loss to Pittsburgh, and nearly managed to take the series lead before losing game three in overtime on Sunday night. Losing those close games will be tough to rebound back from, and even though the Islanders have skated well so far in this series their major online sports betting weaknesses will hold them back. The Penguins have been fortunate in that despite Marc-Andre Fleury’s struggles in goal, Evgeni Nabokov hasn’t been any better for the Islanders. Pittsburgh will try and settle down to play a much more disciplined game four with the chance to take a three-games-to-one series lead before returning home for game five and the chance to clinch the series. Don’t be surprised if the Penguins discover they are a much better team when playing under control and not getting too amped up, as they find a way to get the job done and put the Islanders on the ropes.

NHL Betting Pick: Pittsburgh Penguins - 150
