The Bolts won yesterday with big comeback, scoring 4 unanswered to win 6-4 for a 3-1 series lead. The Isles tied up the East series with a convincing 4-1 win at home. I went 1-2, only losing half a unit. Tonight, the West and North series continue.
Game 3: Canadiens vs. Jets (6:00)
The Habs went 2-0 on the road in the first two games of this series with a 1-0 shutout for Carey Price in Game 2. This could be a quick series now without Mark Scheifele in the lineup for the Jets. Winnipeg has to win this game for any chance to keep the series going so I’ll lay off this one. I’d lean the under too.
Game 4: Golden Knights vs. Avalanche (8:30)
The Golden Knights made this a 2-1 series with their big 3-2 win on Friday night in an excellent game. The Avs are the better team though and too much of a force for Vegas or any other team to deal with. There’s no doubt in my mind that Colorado’s going to win the Stanley Cup and Vegas isn’t going to be able to stop that buzzsaw this series. I think the line is off on this game so even though the Knights may tie this series up in a full capacity Fortress today, I’ll gladly take the Avs at the pick em price for a unit. I’d lean the under as well.
