Tuesday's NHL Playoff Action: What Bettors Need to Know
By Covers.com

Montreal Canadiens at Ottawa Senators (-140, 5)

Ottawa leads series 2-1.

Three games does a bitter rivalry make - at least when it comes to the Ottawa Senators and Montreal Canadiens. The Eastern Conference first-round series between the Canadian neighbors has quickly devolved into a brawl-filled, vitriol-laced hate fest following a brutal Game 3 in which the seventh-seeded Senators pummeled Montreal physically and on the scoreboard. Ottawa can take a commanding 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series when it hosts the Canadiens in Tuesday's Game 4.

The teams had never met in the postseason, but they combined for 236 penalty minutes and nine players received game misconducts in the Senators' 6-1 rout Sunday - a game Ottawa led by only 2-1 after two periods before the game got out of hand in every aspect. There were 14 fighting majors in the third period alone and the sniping extended to behind both benches. Montreal coach Michel Therrien was incensed that the Senators called timeout with only 17 seconds left in the game, calling the move "classless" and accusing counterpart Paul MacLean of trying to "humiliate" his team. MacLean claimed he was "forced to protect" his players. “It got a little bit stupid in the end, but that’s hockey,” MacLean said.

ABOUT THE CANADIENS: Montreal captain Brian Gionta, as well as regular-season leading scorer Max Pacioretty, returned to the lineup Sunday after one-game injury absences. Gionta had a glittering chance to get his team back in the game when he broke in alone early in the third period, but his backhander was denied by Senators goaltender Craig Anderson. "It was definitely the turning point of the game and it spiraled out of control from there,” Gionta said. Canadiens netminder Carey Price had his second poor performance of the series, allowing the six goals on 30 shots. That continued a theme from the regular season that has seen Price hold the opposition under three goals only four times in his last 13 appearances.

ABOUT THE SENATORS: Rookie Jean-Gabriel Pageau was a most unlikely hero in Game 3, registering his first career hat trick. Pageau delivered a memorable go-ahead goal on a shot while his face was bloodied and he lost a tooth on a high stick from Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban. "I might put it under my pillow and see what happens," Pageau quipped of the knocked-out tooth. He was not called up from Ottawa's AHL affiliate until last month and entered the series with only nine NHL games on his resume. Still, Pageau is as responsible for this series as any player, scoring the game-winning goal in the regular-season finale vs. Boston - a win that allowed Montreal to claim the No. 2 seed and set up the matchup with the Senators.

TRENDS:

* Home team is 9-1 in the last 10 meetings.
* Canadiens are 0-4 in the last four meetings in Ottawa.
* Over is 8-3-1 in Canadiens' last 12 overall.
* Under is 34-13-10 in Senators' last 57 overall.

OVERTIME:

1. Senators D Eric Gryba, who was suspended two games for his jarring hit on Lars Eller in Game 1, is eligible to return Tuesday. He is expected to take the place of D Patrick Wiercioch, who was hurt in Game 3.

2. Canadiens RW Brendan Gallagher was among three players named as finalists for the Calder Trophy that goes to the league's top rookie. Gallagher scored 15 goals in the regular season and has two goals in the playoffs.

3. Ottawa G Craig Anderson has turned aside 112 of 118 shots for a save percentage of .949, as compared to Price's .905.


Chicago Blackhawks at Minnesota Wild (+156, 5)

Chicago  leads series 2-1.

The Minnesota Wild looked like a different team at home in Game 3, outshooting the top-seeded Chicago Blackhawks for the first time in their Western Conference first-round series to win their first postseason game in five years. The eighth-seeded Wild host Game 4 on Tuesday hoping to even the series at two games apiece. Rookie Jason Zucker’s shot from a sharp angle 2:15 into overtime gave Minnesota a 3-2 victory on Sunday after falling twice at Chicago: 5-2 in Game 2 and 2-1 in overtime in Game 1. The Blackhawks held a 85-55 shot advantage through the first two games, but the Wild used their relentless forecheck and home-ice energy to generate 37 shots on Sunday and keep the series within their grasp.

Chicago forward Patrick Kane set up both goals by the Blackhawks in Game 3 and leads the series with five points - all assists. Minnesota netminder Josh Harding turned aside 25 shots to earn his first career playoff victory on Sunday and will start Game 4 with Niklas Backstrom still ailing from an injury suffered while warming up for Game 1. Corey Crawford has started all three games for Chicago and was absent from the Blackhawks’ practice on Monday in order to rest for Tuesday’s contest. Chicago is the only team with a power-play goal in the series, going 1-for-9 with the man advantage, while Minnesota has not scored in nine opportunities. The Blackhawks also got a short-handed goal from Michael Frolik, suggesting their special teams might be the difference in a tense Game 4 against the Wild.

ABOUT THE BLACKHAWKS: Rookie Brandon Saad was named as one of three finalists for the Calder Memorial Trophy on Monday along with Jonathan Huberdeau of the Florida Panthers and Brendan Gallagher of the Montreal Canadiens. Saad recorded 10 goals and 27 points and a plus-17 rating while playing most of the season on Chicago’s top line with Marian Hossa and captain Jonathan Toews. “There’s a lot of great rookies this year that had a good season so it’s definitely an honor and I’m very excited,” Saad told reporters following practice on Monday. The 20-year-old has yet to record a point in the series and finished minus-2 in Game 3. Ray Emery and Dave Bolland practiced with the team on Monday but neither will be in the lineup on Tuesday due to lower-body injuries.

ABOUT THE WILD: Pierre-Marc Bouchard, who registered his first two points of the series with a goal and an assist on Sunday, was also instrumental in Minnesota’s last playoff victory on April 14, 2008, when he scored the winning goal in overtime against the Colorado Avalanche. Bouchard is one of five Wild players from that game who is still with the team, along with goaltenders Harding and Backstrom, captain Mikko Koivu and Stephane Veilleux, who was recalled from the AHL on Sunday and has not played an NHL game since April 7, 2012. Koivu has yet to record a point in the series and is minus-3 despite averaging over 20 minutes time on ice per game and firing six shots. Zach Parise, who leads the team with 12 shots, scored his first of the postseason to give Minnesota a 2-1 lead early in the third period of Sunday’s victory.

TRENDS:

* Under is 3-0-1 in the last four meetings in Minnesota.
* Home team is 6-1 in the last seven meetings.
* Blackhawks are 4-1 in the last five meetings.
* Under is 6-0-1 in Blackhawks' last 7 road games.

OVERTIME:

1. Chicago’s last three losses have all come on the road.

2. The Blackhawks lost consecutive games just four times during the regular season.

3. Each of Minnesota’s last three playoff victories have been 3-2 overtime decisions.

Re: NHL Betting News and Notes Tuesday, May 7

2013 NHL Playoffs

Penguins won 10 of last 13 games, are 28-9 in last 37 games vs Islanders, but needed a PP goal in OT to win Game 3, when they were outshot 36-25 (79-58 last two games); three of five Pitt goals came on power play (3-5)- New York was 0-3 on power play. Islanders lost five of their last six games overall, but won five of last seven home games. Penguins won six of last seven visits to Long Island, with last five of those going over total. Eight of last eleven series games overall went over total. Islanders have outscored Pittsburgh 3-0 in third period of series, but Penguins did win only OT game.

Home team is 3-0 in Chicago-Minnesota series; Wild had been outscored 21-7 in losing six of its last seven home games before winning in OT in Game 3; they're 0-9 on power play in series, allowed a shorthanded goal in Game 2, they're 5-8 in their last 13 games overall. Blackhawks won 11 of last 14 games overall, eight of last 12 on road; they won four of last five games with Minnesota. Over is 5-2-2 in last nine Wild games, 1-5-1 in last seven Chicago games. Minnesota scored total of 14 goals in its last eight games. Chicago is just 1-9 on power play in series, with only goal scored in Game 1.

Home side won nine of last ten Montreal-Ottawa games; Canadiens lost last four games in this building (2-1ot/5-1/2-1so/6-1). Last 11 series games went OMOMOMOMOMO, so is it Montreal's turn to win here? Senators are 8-4 in last twelve games overall, with 11 of last 14 staying under the total. Ottawa lost three of last four home games; they were 3-11 on power play in Game 3 bloodbath, after being 0-6 in first two games. Canadiens are 4-6 in last ten road games. There were 236 penalty minutes, nine ejections in last game, and an Ottawa timeout with 0:17 left in a 6-1 game fanned the flames a bit.

Sharks were underdog in this series, but are 6-0 vs Vancouver this season and go for sweep here, allowing total of five goals in three series wins; San Jose is now 15-6 in last 21 games overall; they won first round series six of last eight years, are used to success in spring. Canucks are 3-8 in last eleven games overall; they're actually 5-4 in last nine visits to Shark Tank. Under is now 6-2-3 in last 11 San Jose-Vancouver games. Canucks scored only eight goals in last five games overall. San Jose was 3-8 on power play last game, after being 1-9 in first two games. Canucks don't have first period goal in series.
