NHL Online Friday Playoff Bets
Back even with the pesky Toronto Maple Leafs, the Washington Capitals will look to gain the edge on home ice. Meanwhile, the Ottawa Senators are also home and in position to eliminate the Boston Bruins from the Stanley Cup chase.

Friday Playoff Bets

It’s a quiet night on the Stanley Cup front, with just two games. Here’s where you should be putting your money, based on the odds provided courtesy of BetOnline.ag:

Toronto Maple Leafs (+182) at Washington Capitals (-202)

caps

At the outset of this series, Leafs coach Mike Babcock pointed out that he wasn’t concerned with Capitals forward Tom Wilson, that there were many more Washington players to worry about before him.

Wilson is making Babcock eat those words. He scored the overtime winner in Game 1 and potted a pair of goals in the Capitals’ Game 4 triumph. T.J. Oshie also scored twice in Game 4, and now has six points in the series. Oshie has a point in every game of the set.

Leafs forward Zach Hyman recorded his first career playoff goal in Game 4, becoming the fifth Maple Leafs rookie to score this postseason.

It’s the first time that five different Toronto rookies have scored in the same playoff year since 1940. The young Leafs looked like rookies when they surrendered four first-period goals.

All four games in this series have ended in one-goal verdicts, the first three games via overtime. Toronto has trailed in each of the last three games. Nine of Washington’s last 13 playoff series have gone seven games. Five of the top eight rookie scoring leaders in the playoffs play for Toronto.

Pick: The Capitals (-202) and the under (5.5)

Boston Bruins (-108) at Ottawa Senators (-102)

chara

The ice rink is Erik Karlsson’s plaything and he just lets the rest of the players use it. The Ottawa captain is giving a display of passing fancy in this series, setting up spectacular goals in each of the last three games. Karlsson leads all defensemen in the playoffs with five assists. Boston’s entire defense has combined for six assists.

Bobby Ryan has scored the winner in the last two games and the Ottawa forward has recorded at least one point in all four games of the series, with 3-2-5 numbers. He’s averaging 1.25 points per game in the playoffs after posting a .403 average (25 points in 62 games) during the regular season. He scored once in the final 13 regular-season games.

Senators goalie Craig Anderson earned his fourth career playoff shutout and third with the Senators in Game 4 to tie Ray Emery for second place on the franchise’s all-time list, trailing only Patrick Lalime (five). Ottawa forward Tom Pyatt left during the first period of Game 4 with a suspected concussion. Senators forwards Kyle Turris and Mark Stone, who combined for 49 goals and 99 points during the regular season, have combined for one playoff assist so far. 

Here’s some bad news for the Bruins – in 120 playoff series in franchise history, the team has never rebounded from a 3-1 series deficit. Overall, teams that trail a series 2-1 and go on to lose Game 4 have rallied to win just 10.3 per cent of all Stanley Cup series.

Bruins forward Brad Marchand has one goal in his last 24 playoff games. Boston forward David Pastrnak, a 34-goal scorer in the regular season, failed to register a shot on goal in Game 4. No Boston player has scored more than one goal during the series so far. Bruins forward Frank Vatrano left the rink following Game 4 in a walking boot and his status for Game 5 was uncertain. 

Pick: The Senators (-102) and the under (5)
