NHL 2013-14 Stanley Cup Championship Chase Real Race Begins Tonight
Pardon our excitement but – the chase to become Stanley Cup Champions officially begins tonight. With the stars of the NHL back from the Sochi 2014 Olympic Hockey tournament, some of them more “Golden” than others, a brimming slate of 12 games is featured on the Bodog betting board today. Our focus is on the Toronto Maple Leafs vs New York Islanders contest that’s set for 7:00 PM ET on February 27, 2014, from the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, NY. The Olympics were not kind to the Islanders Hockey Nation.
Toronto Maple Leafs: Looking to restore their winning run
One team that probably didn’t appreciate the timing of the Olympic “interruption” was Toronto. Hotter than a pistol, with wins in eleven of their last 14 games prior to the break, the Maple Leafs have built a six point lead in the top Wild Card playoff position race. Being as Boston has three games in hand on Toronto, the Leafs probably won’t catch the Bruins for top spot in the Atlantic Division but a postseason berth is well within their grasp and control.
New York Islanders: Cursing the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games
NHL stars sustaining an injury during the Olympic Men’s Ice Hockey tournament has long be a shouting point for those opposed to the pros playing for their Country and a Gold Medal every four years. Those setiments are now being echoed even louder since NY Islanders Captain and Team Canada star John Tavares ripped up his medial collateral ligament and meniscus in his left knee during the quarterfinals of the Olympics. While this is bad break for Tavares – the Islanders are 12 points out of a playoff spot and weren’t going to make the postseason party.
Canada Sports Betting Call: Load up on Toronto with the Bodog -115 money line.
