NHL Eastern Conference Online Playoff Betting Predictions
Epic NHL Eastern Conference first round playoff betting action is on tap as the 2011-12 National Hockey League postseason is set to begin. Today we take a look at the Beasts in the East as puck wagering fanatics gear up for the best time of the year – exciting times indeed!
Rangers vs. Senators: Round One Playoff Wagering Action
One of the two Canadian teams to make the playoff party, the Ottawa Senators will try to take Manhattan as they travel to New York to face the Rangers in Round One of the 2011-12 NHL postseason. While neither of these clubs looked very good down the stretch, we like the goaltending of Henrik Lundqvist and the Broadway Blueshirts in five games here.
Boston Begins Stanley Cup Defense Versus Washington
After an up and down sort of season, the Boston Bruins are set to defend their NHL Championship title against the Washington Capitals – perhaps the most disappointing team in the NHL this past season. Few teams can boast the top down consistency that the Boys from Beantown bring to the table – we’ll back the Bruins in six games in this series.
Dullness Personified: Panthers Prowl With The Devils
Two teams that know how to play the dreaded “TRAP” style of hockey hook up as the Florida Panthers meet the New Jersey Devils as third and sixth seeds in the East. Florida faltered to a 2-3-5 record down the stretch, while the Devils were a hot 7-2-1 to close out the campaign. We’ll deal with the Devils in seven games in this – the dullest of the opening round series.
Penguins vs. Flyers: Battle For Pennsylvania Heats Up
We go from dull to brilliant as the Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins battle for Pennsylvania in one of the most anticipated first round series in hockey history. This interstate rivalry has it all and will be a full out war from start to finish. Of the four Eastern Conference series, this one provides the most drama – give us the Penguins to advance in six games!
