NHL Playoff Predictions: Ottawa Senators vs NY Rangers Game 3

NHL Playoff Predictions: Ottawa Senators vs NY Rangers Game 3
Marching into Manhattan, Ottawa is aiming to take a 3-0 stranglehold lead in their Eastern Conference Semifinal series versus New York. The Senators and Rangers carry mirror opposite mantras into this pivotal matchup that's slated for 7:00 PM ET on May 2, 2017, at Madison Square Garden in the Big Apple.

Rangers at Senators NHL Playoffs Game 2 Review

Big Apple Boys? More like the Choke Cherry Kids in actuality. The Rangers are back home after one of the biggest choke-jobs in NHL playoff history. New York was up by many different counts during Game 2 but either the 4-2 or 5-3 lead should have been enough. The latter is especially true as the Rags held that margin with 4:20 left in the match. We had an uneasy feeling when Ottawa tied it up with 1:02 left on the clock – we wanted to throw a brick at our monitor when the Sens lit the lamp 2:54 into the second OT. We are down 0-2 in this Eastern Conference Semifinal series now.

NHL Eastern Conference Semifinal Series Game 3 Preview: Ottawa @ New York

Understanding that cruel and unreasonable punishment is part and parcel in the sports wagering world; the results of some predictions hurt way more than others do. When we took Edmonton +1.5 (-280) in Game 4 of their series with San Jose, we flat out missed the mark, took the hit on our bankroll and moved on. That loss was evident quickly as the Sharks posted a 7-0 win. Game 2 of this series was a never ending roller-coaster ride as New York never trailed and the Rangers had eight (yes eight) different leads during their meltdown. Can the Rangers regroup at The Garden?

As sports fans, we were happy for Ottawa-born Senators centerman Jean-Gabriel Pageau as he lit the lamp four times on Saturday. That includes the goal that pulled the Sens to within one, the tying tally and the OT winner = a “natural hat-trick” in the Great White North. Both goaltenders had shaky moments during Game 2 but Craig Anderson finished stronger than Henrik Lundqvist as he shutout the Blueshirts during the final 37:44 minutes of the match. Ottawa rolls into the Big Apple on a huge high while the Rangers need to wipe the slate clean and get back to business.

150 Units NY Rangers -1.5 (+180) Puck Line Bodog

NHL Playoff Picks Today – May 2, 2017 – 150 Units Rangers -1.5 (+180) @ Bodog. Being as they were favorites during the first two games in Ottawa, we are not surprised that New York is chalk on their home pond. The Rangers were a mediocre 21-16-4 at home while the Senators were about the same at 22-17-2 on the road this season. The Sens won all three games in Boston during Round One while the Rangers went 2-1 vs Montreal at Madison Square Garden. New York outshot Ottawa 48-34 during Game 2 and we expect they will hit the ice just as hard at home. It is almost “now or never” time the Blueshirts so, while the money line may be a “safer route” here, we are laying the -1.5 (+180) puck line price and wagering 150 units on NY getting back into this series.

Eastern and Western Conference NHL Stanley Cup Futures Odds Update

Looking at the updated CSB Stanley Cup futures prices, with three of the four series three games in, the prices are starting to bunch at the top. This is especially true after the Penguins lost Sydney Crosby in the first period of their 3-2 (OT) loss to Washington. The Pens (+300) are still top chalk but that could change very quickly as Crosby has another concussion. The Caps Game 3 win, that was almost a loss after they were up 2-0 with under two minutes on the clock, dropped their Cup futures line from (+900) to (+550). Ottawa is right behind with a (+600) price while the Rangers now have a gaudy (+1400) NHL title line. The health of Sid The Kid will impact the East odds.

Things have tightened up in the Western Conference as well as Edmonton is closing in on the Pens top chalk status with a (+350) money line. Following a fairly dominating performance, during a 3-1 Game 3 victory at home over St. Louis, the Nashville Predators odds dipped to (+500) which is good for third overall. Despite a convincing 6-3 road win versus the Oilers, Anaheim’s (+900) price is still fairly steep while the Blues are NHL Championship underdogs with a bloated (+1600) money line. If you are handicapping the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs – wager with the pros at any of the top ranked sportsbooks recommended here at Canada Sports Betting. They are all puck wagering experts.
