After two consecutive losses, we are ready to give you a game from the USA. NHL action between Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs. The game will be held in TD Garden, Boston, MA, USA.
Anything can happen in a game-seven and the hosts have struggled against the team of Maple Leafs this year, but we see that changing in this one as they have been a strong home team and have taken two of three at home in this series. Boston Bruins have gone 30-14 here at home for the year, plus we note that Tuukka Rask is 19 - 12 in his career against Toronto Maple Leafs.
The home side put up 12 goals in the first two games of this series, and we look for their offence to return in this one. Take over 5.5 goals in this game-seven.
The next game which our experts and analysts have chosen is coming again from the USA. NHL action between Toronto Maple Leafs and Tampa Bay Lightning. Both sides will take a place in Air Canada Centre at Toronto, Canada.
The Bolts will grapple with the Toronto Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario. The visitors enter this game off a 4:3 home win against the Los Angeles Kings, while the Maple Leafs are off a 6:3 home win against the team of Ottawa Senators. This should be an exciting game between a couple of playoff-bound sides. The Bolts are the best team in the league so far, but the Toronto Maple Leafs has been hot of late as they have won seven of their last eight games and they have played well at home recently this year. Still, the Bolts have gone 19-11 on the road for the year and Frederik Andersen has gone 1-5 with a 3.78 GAA in his career against Toronto Maple Leafs.
This is a huge game for the hosts, but still, we feel that the Bolts are still the better team and they will show that with a great road win in this one and the clincher is the fact that Tampa Bay has won five of their previous six games here in Toronto.
After a great success yesterday, we are ready to give you our next pick for today which is coming again from NHL between the teams of Toronto Maple Leafs and Ottawa Senators. The clash will be held in Air Canada Centre at Toronto, Canada.
Ottawa Senators have a home game against Chicago on Tuesday night so they will be playing on no rest, while the Maple Leafs come in off a 3:2 included the over-time loss at home against the team of Blue Jackets.
The team of Toronto Maple Leafs has been real inconsistent of late. Meanwhile, the Senators have turned things around a bit, especially at the offensive end of the ice. The hosts are still the far better team here and they are at home and playing an Ottawa team that will be playing on no rest.
Yesterday, the game which have predicted it was from Sweden between HV 71 and Farjestad. After all, the game finished 5:6 included overtime. The next competitive game which we liked to predict for today is coming from NHL between the teams of Toronto Maple and Columbus Blue Jackets. Both sides will take a place in Air Canada Centre at Toronto, Canada.
The visitors are playing this game without rest and they have really had a tough time getting their offense going. The hosts have not been playing well overall of late as they have gone just 5-7 in their last 12 clashes, but they have won their last two in a row and they are a solid 13-6 here at home while the Blue Jackets have gone just 9-12 away from home so far. Toronto has the clear edge on offence and Andersen has been tough in the crease at home, so we are backing to the home win tonight in the regular time.
Yesterday, New York Rangers are disappointed us with an ineffective game in the regular time as they leaded 1st period with an amazing 0:2 but after all the game finished 2:2 in the ordinary time and we were wrong to think that the away team will win in the ordinary time.
The next competitive game which we liked to predict and make an analyse is coming from NHL between the teams of Toronto Maple Leafs and Tampa Bay Lightning. Both sides will take a place Air Canada Centre at Toronto city. Tampa Bay Lightning just took a surprising home loss to the Philadelphia Flyers, but they bounced back in a big way with a 5:0 rout of the Blue Jackets on the road. The Bolts continues to lead the league in points with 58 and they have now gone 11-2 over their last 13 games.
Toronto has been a much better team at home than on the road, but this is not a great spot for them as they are coming off a long road trip and are taking on a Bolts team that has played very well on the road this year. The visitors have won 11 of their last 13 games overall, while the Maple Leafs have gone just 3-6 in their last nine games.
After the great wins of New York Rangers last night, today we are going to change our strategy a bit and we are starting to make under goals predictions. The first game of this series is the game between Toronto Maple Leafs and Washington Capitals.
Last time both teams showed poor result and we are expecting to see the same game today. This year NHL playoffs are so attractive and effective, but we think both teams are tired and they will miss lots chances to score some goals in rivals net. We think that the Caps will take this game as well, but Toronto Maple Leafs are very dangerous and they should not be underestimated. They can make their game very tough.
Our prediction here will be under 4.5 goals as we want to risk with this bet , because both teams are exhausted.They do not have enough power to score lots goals. The odds are high, they are around 3.00 - 2.35. From the head to head games we can see they are not scoring lots of goals. However we prefer to risk with this bet.
Finally we stroke with a good NHL pick and on odds 1.76 we guessed the final result in the game between Columbus Blue Jackets and Carolina Hurricanes. Tonight there are less NHL games as the only one which we really like to predict is eventually the less interesting games.
There are great battles like Ottawa Senators against Boston Bruins and Minnesota Wild against St. Louis Blues but all these games are very unpredictable and we hardly know or can predict which of the teams will win or how many goals will be scored in those games. Instead of that we found a good game which we think is pretty good for a pick though. It is the game between Washington Capitals and Toronto Maple Leafs as here we will be looking for an under/over goal markets.
In the past three games Toronto Maple Leafs are playing amazing hockey. In their last games they won with 3-4 and 4-3 (included overtime) against their rivals and after that they lose against the Caps with 4-5. The Caps are scoring lots of goals and it will be almost impossible not to score a goals. Our prediction for that fixture is over 5.5 goals included overtime. The odds are pretty good, that is why we will take it.
We are in a bad losing serie in the NHL. We really do not know why there are such surprises recently, but we believe that after the bad period there will be sun on our street. We are continuing following the NHL anyway and our next pick will be for tonight.
Visitors will look to even the series against the Washington Capitals in game two of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals Saturday night from the Verizon Center. The Maple Leafs recorded 95 points to finish in the second Wildcard position, and the Capitals finished first in the Eastern Conference with 118 points. The Capitals won two of three over the Maple Leafs in the regular season, and took game one by a 3-2 score in overtime.
We are going with the under and the Maple Leafs to win this one. Both goalies were outstanding in game one, Andersen made several stellar saves and Holtby is tough to beat and the Capitals are very strong defensively, plus playoff hockey usually sees lower scoring games.
