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

Boston Bruins at New York Rangers (-135, 5)

Bruins lead best-of-seven series 2-0.

The New York Rangers are no strangers to losing the first two games of a series. After all, one needs only to remember their Eastern Conference first-round set versus Washington. The Rangers held serve at home in that series - and will look to do the same against the fourth-seeded Boston Bruins on Tuesday when the Original Six rivals meet for Game 3 at Madison Square Garden. After dropping a 3-2 overtime decision in Game 1, the sixth-seeded Rangers allowed three unanswered goals in a 5-2 setback on Sunday.

"You don't want to be down 2-0," New York coach John Tortorella said on Monday. "We know what hole we're in, but by no means is this a really bad thing. We need to win a game and try to get momentum on our side." Boston can also reflect on its first-round series to see what can happen if it pulls its foot off the throttle. The Bruins led Northeast Division-rival Toronto 3-1 in its series before escaping with a historic victory in Game 7.

ABOUT THE BRUINS: Torey Krug is proving that the spotlight isn't too big as he navigates his way through his initial postseason. The 22-year-old defenseman scored his second goal of the series and added an assist on Sunday - with both points coming off fortunate bounces of the puck. "All that comes with confidence and being calm," Krug said of both goals. "If you're freaking out out there because the puck's not exactly where it is, you're going to get yourself in trouble."

ABOUT THE RANGERS: If Tortorella is searching for positives, well, Rick Nash finally scored his first goal of the postseason on Sunday. Nash, however, downplayed his accomplishment and shed light on the elephant in the room. "That's the obvious one. The power play has to be better," Nash said of the New York's 0-for-8 effort with the man advantage in the series and 2-for-36 mark in the playoffs. "We have to create more opportunities off it, more momentum."

TRENDS:

* Bruins are 6-0 in their last six Conference Semifinals games.
* Home team is 4-1 in the last five meetings.
* Over is 3-0-1 in the last four meetings.

OVERTIME

1. New York G Henrik Lundqvist didn't use his ailing left shoulder as an excuse for his Game 2 performance. "It's under control," the reigning Vezina Trophy winner said.

2. Boston Ds Dennis Seidenberg (lower-body) and Wade Redden (undisclosed) practiced on Monday and will be game-day decisions, according to coach Claude Julien.

3. New York D Dan Girardi was on the ice for all five of Boston's goals in Game 2.


Los Angeles Kings at San Jose Sharks (-129, 4.5)

Kings lead best-of-seven series 2-1.

While they avoided facing the most difficult deficit against which to come back with an overtime victory on Saturday, the sixth-seeded San Jose Sharks still are in a virtually must-win situation when they host the fifth-seeded Los Angeles Kings in Game 4 of their Western Conference second-round series on Tuesday. San Jose was in danger of going down 0-3 to the reigning Stanley Cup champions as the teams ended regulation knotted at 1-1. But the Sharks began overtime with a 5-on-3 power play and cashed in 11 seconds after the first Kings penalty expired as Logan Couture scored at 1:29 to send the HP Pavilion faithful into a frenzy.

Los Angeles was in the same position San Jose found itself entering Game 3 as it lost the first two games of its first-round series at St. Louis before rallying to win four straight. The Sharks are optimistic they can continue along that path as their power play began clicking on Saturday. After going 7-for-24 in its first-round sweep of Vancouver, San Jose was 0-for-7 over the first two contests against Los Angeles before scoring twice on five opportunities in Game 3.

ABOUT THE KINGS: Kyle Clifford may rejoin the lineup Tuesday after missing four games with an undisclosed injury. The left wing failed to register a point in Los Angeles' first five contests this postseason. Left wing Tanner Pearson, who made his NHL debut in Game 3, likely will sit out should Clifford return. Captain Dustin Brown was named as a finalist for the Mark Messier NHL Leadership Award on Monday. Brown, who was runner-up for the honor last year, joins fellow captains Jonathan Toews of Chicago and Daniel Alfredsson of Ottawa as finalists. "It's not something you go out and look for," Brown said. "To be among Toews and Alfredsson in that group was special." Jonathan Quick received a game misconduct for verbally abusing the officials after Couture's overtime goal on Saturday, but the goaltender avoided any further discipline from the league. Coach Darryl Sutter told the Los Angeles Times he believes Quick needs to learn to control his temper. "I think he's got to handle that," Sutter said. "He can't be frustrated. That's a by-product of being a great goaltender."

ABOUT THE SHARKS: Martin Havlat's return to San Jose's lineup was short-lived as the veteran right wing has been ruled out for Game 4. Havlat saw less than five minutes of ice time Saturday in his first appearance since the opener of the Sharks' first-round series against Vancouver before exiting with a lower-body injury. It's not known whether it's the same problem that caused Havlat to miss the team's previous five contests. Defenseman Jason Demers could replace Havlat in the lineup, as he skated with the forwards during Monday's practice. Demers has not played since April 18 due to a left ankle injury and is hoping to get back in the lineup. "I feel good. It's just a question of getting back into game shape," he said. "As soon as you do a couple of shifts, especially in this kind of series, you'll be in shape real quick. I'm just helping out wherever I can and going where they tell me to go." If not Demers, coach Todd McLellan is likely to insert Tim Kennedy into the lineup for Havlat.

TRENDS:

* Kings are 1-9 in their last 10 road games.
* Under is 5-0-2 in Kings’ last seven road games.
* Home team is 12-1 in the last 13 meetings.
* Over is 5-1-2 in Sharks’ last eight home games.

OVERTIME

1. Four of San Jose's five playoff victories over Los Angeles have come in overtime.

2. The Kings are 1-3 on the road this postseason, while the Sharks are 3-0 at home.

3. San Jose LW Patrick Marleau leads the team with five goals and has collected eight points in seven playoff games.

2013 NHL Playoffs

Bruins outshot New York 16-5 in OT to win Game 1 on home ice, then dominated Game 2, winning 5-2, despite Rangers having four more power plays (0-5) than the Bruins (0-1) did. Boston lost 12 of last 14 visits to Manhattan (2-3 in last five); they had lost seven of nine to New York before this series started. Rangers won their last nine home games, with all three home playoff wins by a single goal- their last home loss was to Washington back on March 24. Bruins scored 3+ goals in all six of its playoff wins this spring, 1-1-2 in its three losses. Under is 10-5-3 in last eighteen series games.

Home teams are 10-1 in this round of Stanley Cup playoffs; home teams won 12 of last 13 King-Shark games, with LA losing last six games here. LA allowed a total of 11 goals in winning six of last seven games, streak that started after they fell behind 2-0 in St Louis series. Under is 8-2-2 in LA's last dozen games; defending champs are 4-3 vs San Jose this year, with home side winning all seven games. There were 67 penalty minutes in Game 3, after Games 1-2 had total of only 28; Sharks were 2-5 on power play last game, after LA was 3-6 on power play in Game 2. Kings got called for two penalties in last minute of regulation in Game 3, lost on power play goal in OT, then goalie Quick got misconduct on his way off ice after game; needless to say, that doesn't happen a whole lot.
