NHL Game 7 selections, bets, odds on Lightning at Maple Leafs, Bruins at Hurricanes, Kings at Oilers

Three Game 7 in one day? What a pleasure for hockey fans. The first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs was full of tight series and the trio of Saturday’s 7th game is the best example.

This is the first time in eight years that three Game 7s have been made on the same day. In addition, the matches are interesting for various reasons. The eaves match is probably Tampa Bay in Toronto. Toronto has not won a playoff series since 2004 and Tampa Bay is a two-time Stanley Cup defender.

Game 6: Bruins 5, Hurricanes 2 | The series is a 3-3 draw

Summary from Sean Gentile

Who was the guy? It’s probably safe and boring to pick Brad Marchand at this point. It is consistently wonderful and Thursday night was quiet on the out-of-school side of the street. But it still had a huge impact. he scored first, which was the first time Boston had done it in a row, and his line — you may have heard of the other two kids there — was excellent.

What was the key? After Marchand’s goal, everything was for the Boston support players. It’s been true for the Bruins for a few years now: If they get something out of the midfield, it’s a dangerous team. It just does not happen with enough regularity. On Thursday, however, they scored goals from Charlie Coyle, Erik Haula, Derek Forbort and Curtis Lazar. If they understand it in Game 7, watch out, Carolina – and if they do, watch out for everyone else.

Basic statistics: If Boston wins Game 7, it will be the 16th such victory in franchise history, breaking the draw with the Canadians. If the Hurricanes win Game 7, it will be their sixth straight streak, equaling an NHL record they most recently tied with the Rangers in 2015.

Bruins anxiety meter: …… Momentum is not transferred from game to game, but helps you get into game 7 after winning.

Hurricane Concern Meter: Ί… Definitely should you feel more pressure from Boston. were one of the few top teams in the league during the regular season and beat the Bruins every time they met.

Game 6: Lightning 4, Maple Leafs 3 (OT) | The series is a 3-3 draw

Summary by Max Bultman

What was the key? Before we get to that, I want to say this: Maple Leafs did so much exactly on Thursday. They came back from an early deficit again, showing really impressive endurance. For a team whose mental composition has at times been challenged (fairly), it was huge to see them turn a 2-0 lead into a 3-2 lead in a close road game. In an alternate universe, this is the story of the game. But two high penalties in the middle of the third (one was worth it, one was obviously an explosion) gave Lightning a long 5-on-3. Nikita Kucherov made capital, equalizing the three and finally forcing the extension. Even after that, however, the Leafs had a strong showing in the extra frame, until a bang-bang game – which started with Auston Matthews, who was great at the game, burst into a tire – which wiped out what it should have to be so. success story.

Basic statistic? 0-and-8. This is the Maple Leafs record in closing games since 2017, with their current core intact. They have another chance on Saturday to finish this story. But it is the statistic that will hover above all others until they do.

Maple Leafs anxiety meter: Ή… It was right there to get it, and they played really well on Thursday. They also get game 7 at home. The bad news? Well, you know.

Lightning alarm meter: 🥴🥴🥴🥴 Αυτό Maybe this should be higher, as it was very close to golf on Thursday. But they just do not have demons that have leaves.

Game 6: Oilers 4, Kings 2 | The series is a 3-3 draw

Summary by Harman Dayal

Who was the guy? To anyone’s surprise, Connor McDavid was the king with the Oilers’ backs to the wall. McDavid opened the scoring in less than a minute. He had the entry in the zone and the secondary assist to the winner of the match, Tyson Barry. And he bowed to everything with a strong defensive game in the back to undress Andreas Athanassiou and send Evander Kane for the insurance index.

From beginning to end, No. 97 was a horse. With McDavid on the ice, the Oilers had 20 shots on goal and 3 goals in five against five. The Kings as a whole had 24 shots and 1 goal in 5-on-5.

Basic statistics: Edmonton won the 5-on-5 battle 3-1. The Oilers special teams have been so strong for most of this series, but what has surpassed them is how badly they have been beaten on the scales – they have won 10-2 on 5-on-5 in their defeats. LA was seizing victories by dominating the battle of the even forces. It was crucial for Edmonton to keep her place at least on the scales, she did a better job by winning decisively thanks to McDavid.

Kings anxiety meter.

Oil concern meter: 🥴🥴🥴🥴 Ακόμη They are still 60 minutes away from another possible exit of the first round.
