NHL Playoff Predictions: Ottawa Senators vs NY Rangers Game 4

Senators @ Rangers NHL Playoffs Game 3 Review

After being up 4-2 and 5-3, prior to losing Game 2 in OT, there would be no Rangers choke-job this time around. New York jumped out to a 4-1 lead after two periods and were never challenged by Ottawa. Henrik Lundqvist stopped 26 of the 27 shots he faced while Craig Anderson allowed four goals on 24 attempts during the first two frames. Leaking 235 units (undeservedly) during the first two contests - we're back in the green as we banked 270 units with our Game 3 puck line wager.

NHL Eastern Conference Semifinal Series Game 4 Preview: Ottawa @ New York

As the last Game 4 of the 2017 NHL Semifinal series, New York is looking to follow the path the Anaheim Ducks who evened their series with Edmonton last night. Although standard numbers like faceoff wins, penalties, hits, and shots on goal were fairly even during Game 3, the Rangers were the hungrier squad as they dominated the takeaway stats by a 14-6 margin. Playing as the aggressors is the best way for New York to send this series back to Ottawa tied at two wins each.

Ottawa has looked very ordinary through the better part of the last two matches in this series now. While not a full blown “Cinderella Story” the Senators posting a 6-2 record during their first eight 2017 NHL playoffs contests has been a “feel good” story in Great White North. Craig Anderson has to be better in goal for the Sens journey to continue and someone not named Jean-Gabriel Pageau scoring a goal would help as well. Pageau has now potted the Senators last four lamp-lighters.

160 Units NY Rangers (-160) Money Line Bet365

NHL Playoff Picks Today – May 4, 2017 – 160 Units NY Rangers (-160) Money Line @ Bet365. Though we were a little leery about laying the puck line, our Game 3 analysis was spot on as New York sprinted out of the starting gate and outshot Ottawa 15-5 during the first period on Tuesday. As was the case during the first three contests, the Rangers are chalk on the Bet365 NHL betting board again tonight. Somewhat unfairly maligned, due to their 21-16-4 regular season record at Madison Square Garden, New York has won three in row in the Big Apple now. We have viewed the Rangers as the better team since the start of this series and we still do. Sensing another close contest in Game 4 - back New York with a 160-unit wager on the Bet365 (-160) money line price.

Eastern and Western Conference NHL Stanley Cup Futures Odds Update

Despite being without superstar Sidney Crosby, Pittsburgh protected their home pond and the Penguins took a commanding 3-1 series lead with a 3-2 win vs Washington on Wednesday night. With the win, the Pens (+260) have regained the top chalk spot on the CSB Stanley Cup futures board. The Capitals continue to crash in the playoffs and they now share a (+1000) longshot price with New York. Due to their Game 3 performance, we are surprised that Ottawa is still rather lean chalk as their (+650) ML is the fourth best price overall of the remaining elite eight NHL squads. The Rangers and Ducks current NHL title odds are ripe and we've backed both teams with a 50 unit bet.

On the verge of snuffing out Blues playoff hopes, Nashville has jumped into the second favorite NHL title slot with a (-333) money line. The Predators are up 3-1 and get can get some valuable rest if they beat the Blues in St. Louis tonight. Despite blowing a 2-0 lead, and then losing 4-3 in extra time in their Game 4 fight with Anaheim, Edmonton occupies the third favorite position as their (+500) line trumps the Ducks (+700) price. Say goodbye to St. Louis and do not waste any money on the Blues (+2500) monster NHL Championship line at this point. Premium NYR vs OTT Game 4 puck wagering action is available at any of the Canada Sports Betting recommended sportsbooks.
