NHL Playoff Predictions: Penguins vs Senators Game 7

NHL Playoff Predictions: Penguins vs Senators Game 7
Saved by Craig Anderson, the Ottawa Senators will traverse the Canada/USA border for the 13th time during the NHL playoffs when they visit Pittsburgh for Game 7 of the East Final at 8:00 PM ET on May 25, 2017 at PPG Paints Arena. An unlikely full series, can Cinderella escape Steel City with the Penguins Crown?

Penguins vs Senators NHL Playoffs Game 6 Review

Crashing, but not crushed, we return to forecast and predict the seventh and final round of this “NHL Champion vs Overall Underdog” fight. Speaking of crushed, outshot by a 46-30 margin, Craig Anderson bested Matt Murray during Game 6 of the Eastern Conference final as the Senators staved off elimination with a 2-1 win at Canada’s Garage in Kanata. Back to Steel Town we go eh?

My Team's Next MatchOttawa Senators

Despite two Pittsburgh power plays, the Sens and Pens put up goose eggs during the first period in Canada’s Capital. Evgeni Malkin opened the scoring at 4:51 of the second period but Booby Ryan knotted the contest at 1-1 with 6:45 left in the middle frame. Danny Gallivan would have called Mike Hoffman’s game winning shot, 1:34 into the third period, a scintillating, cannonading drive.

Pittsburgh Penguins vs Ottawa Senators Prediction

Although rising stars are in need of more dough soon, Conor Sheary and Jake Guentzel come to mind, there’s no truth to Mario needing the Game 7 gate money to keep the Penguins competitive moving forward. To be frank, we can’t come up with too many reasons why we have this final fight tonight. That said, there isn’t much that compares to a winner take all NHL Championship clash. Amped Penguin Fans rocking the New Igloo may result in wave warnings for the Allegheny River.

For their part, the Senators need to look past their 7-0 Sunday Bloody Sunday Game 5 loss and find one more load of reliance to bring the Cup Final back to Canada. Vancouver was the last Canuck contender as they lost the 2011 Cup series 4-3 to the Boston Bruins. Ottawa last hosted a Stanley Cup contest on June 4, 2007 when they lost 3-2 during Game 4 to the Anaheim Ducks. The Sens hope Craig Anderson’s playoff wall is allowed across the Trump government controlled border.

1000 Units Pittsburg -1.5 (+150) Puck Line Bet William Hill

Bookmakers, from hither and yon, don’t believe the Senators can go into Pittsburgh and escape with a Game 7 win over the Penguins as Ottawa are big pups on every NHL betting board we have checked. That is case at one of our puck wagering favorites William Hill as their linemakers have Sidney Crosby & Crew as (-200) money line chalk. Much like the Predators vs Ducks Game 6, which had two empty net goals, we don’t see this as being a one-goal game. As such, we are backing the defending Champions with a 1000 unit wager on the -1.5 (+150) puck line posted at William Hill.
