Rangers vs Devils Eastern Conference Final Betting Update
National Hockey League 2011-12 playoff action continues as we head back to the Eastern Conference Final series for tonight’s betting action. The New York Rangers can take a 3-1 stranglehold lead on the series, while the New Jersey Devils are looking to tie it up at two games apiece on their home ice. We won’t be getting off the Blueshirts bandwagon tonight as the Rangers take another step towards a NY vs. LA Stanley Cup Final!
Rangers Can Capture Commanding Lead At The Rock
We have been on the Broadway Blueshirts bandwagon since the NHL playoffs began back in the middle April. Fast forward, through almost six weeks of thrilling puck wagering action, and we are still onboard today. Apart from the fact that Rangers head coach John Tortorella has his club playing in a huge team effort mode right now, we love to back Hendrik Lundqvist when he’s in a New York state of net.
King Henry has been commanding throughout the 2012 NHL playoffs as he is sporting a1.57 goals against average to go along with a brilliant .942 save percentage. New Jersey counted three goals against Lundqvist in their Game Two win (3-2 ) but the Devils were unable to light the lamp in the other two contests. The Rangers have registered a pair of 3-0 victories, to sandwich their lone loss, and gain a 2-1 series lead.
New Jersey Devils Hoping For Series Savings Home Sweet Home Win
If New Jersey stands any chance of advancing to the Stanley Cup Final – the Devils need a big effort from Martin Brodeur and a victory tonight. Going down 3-1, with the series headed back to the Manhattan madness at Madison Square Garden, would more than likely doom the Devils dream of hoisting Lord Stanley’s mug.
Before Hank & Co. shut the door with their 3-0 deep six of the Devils in Game 3, New Jersey was 4-1 at home in the Prudential Center during the 2012 NHL postseason. In the quarterfinals, the Florida Panthers took a 2-1 series lead with a 4-3 Game Three win in Newark. Brodeur then surpassed HOF member Patrick Roy with his 24th career playoff shutout as the Devils tied the series at two games with a 4-bunk shutout in Game Four.
Betting Trend: Can Marty Match His QF Game Four Performance?
In that Florida series, Brodeur was pulled in Game 3, for the first time in six years during the playoffs, before storming back with the goose egg he zipped against the Panthers. He will need a similar performance tonight. Marty rarely flat out sucks so we expect him to be good – especially after having two full days off from hockey and traveling. That said, we see the new King being a bit more regal in a low scoring, feisty contest tonight.
