Second, pick your teams. You can bet on the series or Game 1.
Upset Special #1: The Florida Panthers over Boston in Game 1. A flu-bug is sweeping through the Bruins dressing room. One player lost eight pounds. Boston is hurting, and no one is sure who will be able to play. Take the red hot Florida Panthers +190 in Game 1.
Here’s the PHN upset special #2: Take the LA Kings over Edmonton in the series. Yep. We like LA’s solid makeup. It’s the kind of team that can slow the high-flying but top-heavy Oilers led by Connor McDavid. Our concern is the Kings’ goaltending, but since the arrival of Joonas Korpisalo at the NHL trade deadline, the Kings have been a tough out every night.
The Kings are +210 to win the series, and we’re buyers for the shocker of the playoffs.
Technically, picking Tampa Bay over Toronto would be an upset, too. However, Tampa Bay is the three-time defending conference winner and tough as nails this time of year. Tampa Bay is +135 against the favored Toronto Maple Leafs, who haven’t won a first-round playoff series since 2003.
Game 1 between Carolina and the Islanders begins at 7 p.m. Monday, followed by Florida at Boston at 7:30 p.m.
