Sharks Look To Steal Crucial Road Win Over Kings

Posted by Carter Brown on 5/22/2013 7:42:03 PM

The San Jose Sharks have been a perennial playoff team for the better part of a decade, but have never been able to capitalize on their Stanley Cup potential. That is the biggest reason for the online sports betting hockey experts overlooking them in these playoffs. However, as we have seen so many times before, the Sharks are playing their best hockey without the pressure of high expectations, and are now two wins away from eliminating the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings

Eastern Conference Semi-Final
Boston Bruins @ New York Rangers
Thursday, 7:00 PM ET – Game 4
Bruins lead 3-0

The Bruins know all about comebacks, and after coming back to win game three of their second round series against New York, they are now one win away from the conference finals. Boston nearly let a three-games-to-one series lead over the Rangers slip away before making NHL history with its dramatic comeback win in game seven, and are trying to play with more of a killer instinct in this sports betting series. The Bruins want to end this series as soon as possible to rest and prepare for next round, so look for them to put the Rangers away in game four.

NHL Betting Pick: Boston Bruins + 130

Western Conference Semi-Final
Chicago Blackhawks @ Detroit Red Wings
Thursday, 8:00 PM ET – Game 4
Red Wings lead 2-1

The Blackhawks struggled to get the job done quickly against Minnesota in the opening round, and now they have even bigger problems against Detroit. Chicago has dropped back-to-back games after winning game one, and now has to win game four on the road to avoid falling in to a three-games-to-one series deficit. The Red Wings have done an excellent job of keeping the Blackhawks’ superstars from scoring big goals at key moments, and Jimmy Howard has outplayed Corey Crawford in one of the most important match ups of the online betting series to this point.

NHL Betting Pick: Detroit Red Wings + 130

Western Conference Semi-Final
San Jose Sharks @ Los Angeles Kings
Thursday, 10:30 PM ET – Game 5
Series tied 2-2

The defending Stanley Cup champion Kings have conceded a two-game series lead, and are now battling against the current with their second round series tied. San Jose found life at home and managed to battle back with a pair of wins to even the series at two, but still has to find a way to win on the road in order to advance. The Sharks have frustrated the Kings with their defense and Antti Niemi has been excellent. This contest will be a battle of bounces and key moments, but it looks like this San Jose team is finally ready to live up to its potential and challenge for a spot in the Stanley Cup Finals by eliminating the defending champions and moving on to the next round.

NHL Betting Pick: San Jose Sharks + 150
