Saturday's NHL playoffs: What Bettors Need to Know
By Covers.com

Los Angeles Kings at Chicago Blackhawks (-160, 5)

Jonathan Quick authored an amazing performance en route to securing the Conn Smythe Trophy during the Los Angeles Kings' Stanley Cup-winning season in 2012. The Connecticut native is penning quite the sequel in 2013 as the fifth-seeded Kings visit the United Center for Game 1 of their Western Conference final against the top-seeded Chicago Blackhawks. Quick helped Los Angeles turn aside fourth-seeded St. Louis in six games and sixth-seeded San Jose in seven behind three shutouts, an NHL-best 1.50 goals-against average and .948 save percentage.

While Quick has been sensational in the playoffs, he was rather pedestrian as the Kings dropped two of three meetings to the Blackhawks this season. Corey Crawford, who is Quick's counterpart, also has posted impressive numbers in the playoffs - sitting second in goals-against average (1.70) and third in save percentage (.938). Crawford helped Presidents' Trophy-winning Chicago to a five-game series victory over eighth-seeded Minnesota in the first round before pulling out an overtime victory in Game 7 against Original Six rival Detroit in the second.

ABOUT THE KINGS: During last season's run to the Cup, Los Angeles made itself at home on the road by winning its first 10 games. The tables have turned in 2013 as the Kings have won just once in six contests away from the Staples Center. Los Angeles could welcome the return of Jarret Stoll, who missed the final six contests of the second round after absorbing a brutal hit from San Jose's Raffi Torres. The Kings are led by Mike Richards' team-leading 10 points and fellow former Philadelphia star Jeff Carter's five goals. Defenseman Drew Doughty is logging nearly 28 minutes of ice time.

ABOUT THE BLACKHAWKS: After being held off the scoresheet in four straight contests, Patrick Sharp recorded his seventh goal of the postseason in Wednesday's Game 7 - tying him with Pittsburgh teammates Sidney Crosby and Pascal Dupuis for the league lead. Perhaps Sharp's scoring touch can find its way to captain Jonathan Toews, who has just one goal in the playoffs after matching Patrick Kane with a team-high 23 during the season. Toews did collect a goal and an assist in all three meetings against Los Angeles in 2013.

TRENDS:

* Kings are 1-11 in their last 12 road games.
* Under is 7-0-2 in Kings’ last nine road games.
* Blackhawks are 1-4 in their last five vs. Pacific foes.

OVERTIME

1. Los Angeles has won 14 consecutive games at the Staples Center, although Chicago opened the season with a 5-2 triumph on Jan. 19. The Blackhawks
posted a 3-2 victory at home on Feb. 17 before dropping a 5-4 decision at the United Center on March 25.

2. Chicago advanced to the conference final for the first time since 2010. The Blackhawks won that series and felled the Flyers in six games to seize the Stanley Cup.

3. Chicago has killed off a league-best 97.6 percent of its short-handed situations in the postseason.


Boston Bruins at Pittsburgh Penguins (-170, 5.5)

Jarome Iginla carefully weighed his options before accepting a trade to the Pittsburgh Penguins over two months ago. In doing so, the veteran spurned the advances of several teams - notably the fourth-seeded Boston Bruins. While Iginla has added to the top-seeded Penguins' powerful punch, he'll face the team he hit in the mouth in the visiting Bruins on Saturday in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference final. The teams are meeting in the playoffs for the first time since 1992. Pittsburgh won that series en route to the latter half of its back-to-back Stanley Cup titles.

"When I was faced with that choice and had the opportunity of being very fortunate to have a couple of really good teams (trading for me), I knew the possibility that this would be the case," Iginla said earlier in the week. With four goals and eight assists, the veteran did his part in helping Pittsburgh eliminate the eighth-seeded New York Islanders in six games before ousting seventh-seeded Ottawa in five. Boston defeated a pair of Original Six rivals to advance to the conference final. The Bruins nearly squandered a 3-1 series lead in the first round before rallying past fifth-seeded Toronto. They had considerably less difficulty with the sixth-seeded New York Rangers, eliminating them in five.

ABOUT THE BRUINS: While hardly considered chopped liver, Jaromir Jagr was the "consolation prize" for the Bruins at the trade deadline - but the former Penguin has yet to score a goal in 12 postseason games. Boston has been bolstered by the offensive contributions from its defensemen - notably rookie Torey Krug, who has scored three of his four goals on the power play. Fellow blue-liner Johnny Boychuk also has four tallies - not a shabby accomplishment considering he had just one goal in 44 games during the regular season. David Krejci leads the league with 17 points (five goals, 12 assists) and is a plus-9.

ABOUT THE PENGUINS: Offense hasn't been the issue in the Steel City, as the Penguins have scored 46 goals - including 13 in their final two contests. Norris Trophy candidate Kris Letang has an NHL-best 13 assists, leads all defensemen with 16 points and shares the team lead in that category with reigning Hart Trophy winner Evgeni Malkin. Captain Sidney Crosby has matched teammate Pascal Dupuis and Chicago's Patrick Sharp with a league-leading seven tallies and former 40-goal scorer James Neal has scored five times in his last two games.

TRENDS:


* Bruins are 0-6 in the last six meetings.
* Penguins are 5-0 in their last five Conference Finals games.
* Under is 7-2 in the last nine meetings.

OVERTIME

1. The Penguins posted a 3-2 victory over the Bruins on March 12 and a 2-1 triumph five days later. They also recorded a 3-2 decision on April 20 - one day
after the scheduled contest was postponed as authorities conducted a manhunt for one of the suspects involved in the Boston Marathon bombings.

2. Pittsburgh is making its first appearance in the Eastern Conference final since 2009 - while Boston reached this stage for the second time in three years.

3. Penguins G Tomas Vokoun has won six of seven starts and recorded a 1.85 goals-against average since replacing former Stanley Cup-winning goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury. Bruins G Tuukka Rask has won eight of 12 postseason outings and boasts a .928 save percentage.

2013 NHL Playoffs

Blackhawks were down 3-1 to Detroit, rallied to win series; Kings were down 2-0 in first series to St Louis, are 8-3 in playoffs since then. Kings won four of last six games against Chicago, winning two of last three here, after an 0-7 series skid vs Blackhawks before that; teams haven't met since LA won 5-4 here March 25. Chicago has killed all but one of 41 opponent power plays in playoffs; under is 5-3-4 in their playoff tilts, 10-2-1 in LA's. Blackhawks are just 6-37 with man advantage, Kings 7-35- there were exactly three goals scored in each of LA's last five games in San Jose series. Both teams won last series in 7, with Kings losing all three road games- they're 1-5 on road in playoffs.
