Maple Leafs, Rangers Look To Turn Momentum

Posted by Don Melrose on 5/3/2013 10:20:22 PM

The NHL playoffs are underway, and after the teams in a pair of Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series’ introduced themselves to one another in game one, the stage is set for the rematch this Saturday night. The Boston Bruins thoroughly dominated the Toronto Maple Leafs in game one, beating them 4-1 in a game that could have just as easily been 10-1 if James Reimer didn’t make so many saves. The Maple Leafs will try to bounce back and at least try and turn the online betting momentum before heading home for game three, something the New York Rangers will also try and do as they clash with the Washington Capitals.

Eastern Conference Quarterfinal
New York Rangers @ Washington Capitals
Saturday, 12:30 PM ET – Game 2
Capitals lead 1-0

The difference between the two series’ is that the Rangers actually outshot Washington 36-30 in their game one loss, but couldn’t find a way to get more pucks past Capitals’ net minder Braden Holtby. Washington sent 10 of the first 11 shots in the game at the New York net, but it was all Rangers after that and they couldn’t buy a goal. The Capitals need those types of performances from Holtby if they are going to put away this series, and maintaining home ice advantage with another win on Saturday will be key. Alex Ovechkin carried over his hot finish to the regular season with a power play goal that got Washington on the board, and will look for more than a single point in game two. All three Capitals’ goals came in a span of under 10 minutes in the second period, and if Holtby continues to play the way he did in game one then two or three goals on Henrik Lundqvist could be enough to take a two-games-to-none sports betting series lead.

NHL Betting Pick: Washington Capitals - 170

Eastern Conference Quarterfinal
Toronto Maple Leafs @ Boston Bruins
Saturday, 7:00 PM ET – Game 2
Bruins lead 1-0

Toronto wasn’t nearly as close in their game-one loss, as it was outshot 40-20, dominated along the boards, and had far too many giveaways. Some of that will be chalked up to nerves after the franchise ended a nine-year playoff drought, and while winning game two will not be any easier, the Maple Leafs have to find a way to begin to turn the momentum. An early power play goal was all that Toronto could do in game one, and when the floodgates opened the Bruins had chance after chance as they found ways to keep the bulk of the play in the Maple Leaf zone. When Boston did concede a scoring chance it was former Toronto prospect Tuukka Rask coming up with a big save, and as long as he continues to see the puck and doesn’t have a lot of traffic in front of him that strong play will continue as the Bruins look to take the two-game online sportsbook series lead on Saturday night hockey.
