Tip –After the splitting the first two games of the of the series in Boston, the Bruins and Maple Leafs move to Toronto to continue their intense affair. The Maple Leafs thoroughly outplayed the Boston in the opening game last Thursday while the Bruins physically dominated Toronto in game two on Saturday. Both Torey Krug and Connor Clifton left Saturday night’s game and did not return, which could force Boston to call up a couple of players from their AHL affiliate. Toronto’s Nazim Kadri was given a major penalty for his cross-check on Jake DeBrusk and will likely miss action due to suspension for the second consecutive postseason. Expect to see a better Leafs’ side in game 3 though than we saw in game 2 as they return to home ice looking to take the series lead. Go with the home side on all relevant betting sites.

Washington Capitals at Carolina Hurricanes

Tip –The Washington Capitals showed why they are the defending Stanley Cup champions as they made quick work of the Carolina Hurricanes in the first two games of the series. After being one of the last teams to clinch a playoff spot, they could find themselves eliminated by the end of the week if they don’t get things going quickly. They will be desperate to get a win in front of their home fans and understand the consequences if they don’t.

Tip –After having been thoroughly outplayed in both games on Long Island, Pittsburgh has enough playoff experience to understand how important it is to win on home ice. The Islanders have been shocking fans and rivals alike with their impressive play throughout the campaign and proved they have no fear of the Penguins’ big names early in the series. Despite New York’s confident play though, Pittsburgh are too good to be knocked out so easily and will continue to fight. Take the home side to get the job done on Tuesday evening.

Tip –In what is probably the most unpredictable series in the opening round of the 2018/2019 NHL Playoffs, the San Jose Sharks and Vegas Golden Knights will meet for the fourth time on Tuesday evening. They each took one game in San Jose, which is great for Vegas who will like their chances on home ice. They collected points in 29 of 41 home games this season. However, one team who did earn a win in regulation at T-Mobile Arena was San Jose and they will not be intimidated on the road. Take the visitors to earn a crucial victory to re-gain home ice advantage.

 

Calgary Flames at Colorado Avalanche

Tip –Visiting Colorado is difficult for any road team in any sport given the altitude. As a result, we could really see the Flames struggle against the Avalanche who were much better at home than on the road in the regular season. However, Calgary won the only game played between these two teams at the Pepsi Center this year and the Flames dominated the Avalanche throughout the campaign. In fact, Colorado’s first win this year against Calgary came in game 2 of the series on Saturday night after Calgary had won four consecutive games. This should be a tightly contested battle with neither team wanting to slip up. Go with the under on all your favourite bookmakers for this one.

Tip –It remains to be seen if the Leafs will have Nazim Kadri back for this one and whether Torey Krug or Connor Clifton will be able to return to the series, but don’t expect to see the physicality diminish regardless. The Bruins will look to intimidate the home team with plenty of hitting while Toronto will need to focus on playing their brand of hockey like we saw in game 1. After losing both games in Boston during the regular season, Toronto knows how important it is to keep home ice advantage in the series and to do so they must win both games 3 and 4 at Scotiabank Arena. Boston will have other plans though and we will likely see a split series heading into game 5 back at TD Garden.
