NHL Playoff Slapshot – May 13th

We should at least have two more four game slates as tonight’s games are all 2-2 series, so let’s root for them to go 7 strong

GAME THOUGHTS

RANGERS vs PENGUINS

All series long I, along with others, have been chasing the Igor shutout game.  Boy could they use that tonight as that’s really the only hope the Rangers have.  So it’s NYR 2-0 or Pittsburgh wins 6-1.  My lean is on the Pittsburgh side sadly.

Betting Lean:  Penguins -1.5

PANTHERS vs CAPITALS

I also believe Florida closes out Washington tonight.  The Caps had their chance when they were up 3-0 on Florida in game 5 and then as soon as the Panthers flood gates opened things turned.  Florida scores twice in the first period tonight on their way to a 4-3 win.

Betting Lean:  1st Period OVER 1.5

FLAMES vs STARS

Get this game right and win all the money.  Nobody will have ownership on this spot with the other two once again as it has been playing quiet compared to those Eastern Conference games.

I like Calgary once again here tonight.

Betting Lean:  Calgary ML
