Ottawa Senators v New York Rangers
It would be the shock of the round if the Ottawa Senators can beat the number one seeds from the Eastern Conference; the New York Rangers. We're in Ottawa tonight and they have a real opportunity to do just that, with the Rangers just three periods away from elimination.
Respective goalies Henrik Lundqvist and Craig Anderson have both been excellent and what separates the two teams so far is really the Senators winning both of the games that went to overtime. In terms of skaters, despite both teams possessing plenty of offensive talent, no individual or forward line seems prepared to take over and dominate a game to get their team a clear victory. When you add that to the form of the goaltenders, it looks set to be another low scoring affair. At 2.65, Ottawa are good value to win the game.
Phoenix Coyotes v Chicago Blackhawks
Phoenix and Chicago tied an all-time record on Saturday when they went to overtime for the fifth consecutive time. Evidently there is little between these two so there is every chance we could go past 60 minutes again tonight, it's a good option at 3.60. Chicago need a win to stay alive, and perhaps that desperation will see them through.
Blackhawks Captain Jonathan Toews scored the winning goal last time out to keep his team in the hunt, he is such a consistent performer in clutch situations and always a good bet to pick up a point at 2.75.
Best Bet: Fewer than 4.5 total goals in New York versus Ottawa at 1.98
