NHL Eastern Conference Semifinal Series Preview: New York vs Ottawa
Definitely not strangers to the bright lights, of the NHL postseason or Broadway, New York is back at the playoff party for the eleventh time in twelve years. The Blueshirts are aiming to get back to the Stanley Cup Finals for the second time in four years – they were crushed 4-1 by the LA Kings in 2014. New York then lost 4-3 in the Eastern Conference Finals vs Tampa Bay in 2015, prior to getting pummelled by Pittsburgh in the 2016 quarterfinals. We like battle tested playoff teams.
Five Canadian teams made the Big Dance this year, not bad after zero squads made it last season, but only Ottawa and the Edmonton Oilers are still alive. Ottawa has been on a confusing “in one year – out the next” trend as they have made the postseason every “even” year but have missed all the “odd” years since 2008. That is a ten-season trend now and may be worth considering when the 2017-18 NHL futures odds are posted at SportsInteraction once the playoffs end in June.
Goal total bettors are advised that twelve of the past fifteen games between these teams were decided by five goals or less with six of those ending right on five. During their twelve total first round games vs Boston and Montreal, Ottawa and New York played a combined nine one-goal games, six matches went to OT and nine were decided by five goals or less. Red-hot vs Montreal, Henrik Lundqvist gives the Rangers a slight edge over Greg Anderson in the goaltending duel.115 Unit Rangers (-115) Money Line Bet SportsInteraction

NHL 2017 Semifinal Series, Conference and Stanley Cup Championship Futures Wagering Update
Ottawa (+3300) and New York (+1600) were Stanley Cup underdogs prior to the 2017 playoffs. Heading into the second round, based on the current NHL futures odds, the Senators at (+1100) and Rangers at (+800) are still big pups. That is due to fact that Washington (+300) or Pittsburgh (+450) will face the winner of this series in the Eastern Conference Finals. While we are going to sit back and enjoy the Pens vs Caps epic clash, after losing six straight series, we like Washington to finally get over the hump versus Pittsburgh during what will be a highly entertaining matchup.
