NHL Futures Betting: 2013 Stanley Cup Final Series Prices
Boston Bruins: Eastern Conference Champs on a huge roll
After getting a much-needed wake-up call during their seven-game first round series against the Toronto Maple Leafs, Boston has been on a huge roll through the last two rounds of the 2013 NHL postseason. In a 4-1 series win over the New York Rangers, the Bruins beat up on the Blueshirts by a combined 16-10 count. Boston played even better against the high powered Penguins as the Bruins held Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin pointless in the East Finals and pounded Pittsburgh by a 12-2 count during a four game sweep.
Chicago Blackhawks: Western Conference Champs face physical Bruins club
After rolling through the Minnesota Wild 4-1 in their opening round of the NHL playoffs, Chicago faced their toughest test against the Detroit Red Wings as the Blackhawks came back from a 3-1 series deficit to win in seven games. The Hawks played like a President’s Trophy winning team as they sent the defending Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings packing in five games – though three of the contests were decided by just one goal and the final tally was 14-11 Chicago. A tough battle is brewing for the Hawks against the Bruins.
