Monday's NHL Playoffs Betting News and Notes
By Covers.com

Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Columbus Blue Jackets (+111, 5.5)

Penguins' Brian Gibbons scored two goals 54 seconds apart early in the first period on Saturday before exiting with an undisclosed injury. Coach Dan Bylsma said the rookie is considered day-to-day but would not elaborate. Fellow forward Marcel Goc skated on Sunday as he attempts to work his way back from a nine-game absence due to a foot injury.

Fedor Tyutin suffered an undisclosed injury during Saturday's tilt, but fellow defenseman Jack Johnson picked up the slack by scoring a power-play goal with 6:01 remaining in the third period to tie the game at 3-3. Johnson logged a team-best 38:21 of ice time as Columbus played with five blue-liners. Coach Todd Richards remained tight-lipped on Tyutin's status, although defensemen Dalton Prout and Nick Schultz took part in Sunday's optional practice.

TRENDS:

* Penguins are 5-0 in the last five meetings in Columbus.
* Penguins are 7-1 in the last eight meetings.
* Over is 7-2 in the last nine meetings in Columbus.


Colorado Avalanche vs. Minnesota Wild (-125, 5)

There was some debate as to whether Colorado should select defenseman Seth Jones or MacKinnon with the top overall pick in last year's draft. No more. MacKinnon matched Stastny by scoring a highlight-reel goal and collecting three assists in Game 2 to give him seven points in the series, tying a record set by Montreal's Odie Cleghorn in 1919 and matched by Boston's Barry Pederson in 1982 for the highest point total by a player in his first two career playoff games. MacKinnon became the first 18-year-old to collect six assists in a postseason series.

Trade-deadline acquisition Ilya Bryzgalov was thrust into an unexpected starting role due to injury and responded by going 7-0-3 in his first 10 starts to seize the No. 1 netminder's job entering the playoffs. But after Bryzgalov surrendered eight goals in the first two games, there is a widespread feeling that rookie Darcy Kuemper will be between the pipes for Game 3 after stopping all 14 shots he faced in a relief role Saturday. Kuemper missed the final seven games of the regular season with a concussion but said he is up to the challenge of starting.

TRENDS:

* Over is 4-0 in the last four meetings.
* Avalanche are 4-0 in the last four meetings.
* Avalanche are 5-3 in the last seven meetings in Minnesota.


St. Louis Blues vs. Chicago Blackhawks (-156, 5)

After complimenting Corey Crawford for his play in Game 1, coach Joel Quenneville agreed with his goaltender's assessment that he needs to be better if Chicago is going to rally in this series. "He said he needs to be better, and he needs to be better," Quenneville told reporters on Sunday. Making the Blackhawks' bid to repeat all the more challenging is the loss of defenseman Brent Seabrook, who was suspended three games by the NHL for his hit to the head of St. Louis captain David Backes on Saturday afternoon.

Coach Ken Hitchcock wasn't too forthcoming with information on Backes (upper body), saying on Sunday that "he's upright and that's about it right now." Patrik Berglund, who has missed the last three games with an upper-body injury, could return to the lineup should Backes be unable to compete.  "I told the boys (Saturday) I can't take this anymore," Berglund said. "Hopefully, I will heal fast and be able to help them out on the ice. It's easier that way."

TRENDS:

* Over is 4-1 in the last five meetings.
* Blues are 6-2 in the last eight meetings.
* Home team is 37-18 in the last 55 meetings.


Anaheim Ducks vs. Dallas Stars (-116, 5.5)

The Ducks literally are being led by their captain and a rookie goaltender. Ryan Getzlaf has registered a goal and an assist in each of the first two games while Frederik Andersen has posted 32- and 34-save performances in his first two career playoff contests. Getzlaf also leads the team with a plus-4 rating and is tops among Anaheim forwards with an average of 20:15 of ice time.

Brenden Dillon skated prior to Dallas' practice on Sunday, but the defenseman still is not ready to return from a lower-body injury. "He may have a chance to skate with the team (on Monday)," coach Lindy Ruff told the team's website. "We're advancing, but he won't be ready to play (in Game 3)." The Stars are looking forward to their first playoff game since 2008 at home, where they went 10-2-1 in their last 13 during the regular season.

TRENDS:

* Under is 5-1 in the last six meetings in Dallas.
* Home team is 4-1 in the last five meetings.
* Ducks are 16-35-2 in the last 53 meetings in Dallas.
