Colorado Avalanche (2.16) vs Dallas Stars (2.82)
The Stars were leading the tie 3-2 going into the last, but a romping from the Avalanche tied the series and takes us to game 7 tonight.
The Avalanche star offence took Dallas to the task, hammering them 4-1 in the last game. MacKinnon, Rantanen, Makar and Zadorov picked up the goals in the last and will hope to repeat that feat in this one.
Dallas has now lost the last two on the bounce and needs to build some confidence and momentum back up if they are to compete here. The NHL playoff betting odds favour the Avalanche and in the form, they’re in we tend to agree.
Take the Avalanche to win.

Vegas Golden Knights (1.73) vs Vancouver Canucks (4.09)
The Golden Knights are the favourites to win the competition and have been even before the offseason began. They are looking in good shape, but have made life difficult for themselves against the Canucks.
They enter game 7 having lost the last two games in the series, much like the Stars, and need to up their game otherwise it’s curtains for them this season.
The Stanley Cup betting odds heavily favour them in this one. But the Canucks have proven to be resilient and will feel they are able to progress to the next round.
Expect the Knights to win.

Philadelphia Flyers (2.76) vs New York Islanders (2.28)
The Flyers went 3-1 down in the series but managed to pull off two great wins 4-3 and 5-4 in their last two games. Although these were very narrow victories, their mind is extremely strong right now.
Nearly all NHL betting sites have the Islanders as the favourites in this one. While they lost in their last, the usual faces in Barzal and Lee bagged a goal each.
If the Islanders are to progress they need to get their offensive players in the right areas and start building some consistency in the offence. This will be the closest game out of the weekend’s hockey action. Will it be the Islanders or the Flyers?
Pick the Islanders to win.
