Here is what I am going with tonight:
CHI Blackhawks @ ANA Ducks 50 Win CHI Blackhawks (Money Line) 2.04 bet365
"The Blackhawks have not lost consecutive games in the playoffs; The Ducks have not beaten Chicago back-to-back since 2013. The Ducks have had big game 1s in each series this postseason, yet the margins have shrunk following, whereas Chicago have got better as the series have gone on. Hence I am again picking the Blackhawks, as even if they don't win tonight, they will soon."
I feel my reasons above are valid and yet I am far from sure that they will prevail tonight, but the underdog is tempting here. Don't forget to like good tips on the OLBG NHL tips page, and I have shared this pick on twitter tonight. You can follow me - my handle is @ajayy77. Good luck everyone!

Top stuff from the Hawks today. Squaring the Series at 1-1. This is where things get interesting as The ducks havn't been the same team on the road.
And the Hawks are so tough at home. Go Hawks!

Not a bad effort from Crawford with 60 saves. Got to feel for Andersen though, 53 saves and still on the losing team.

Going to be interesting to see how the game affects both teams. Chicago have a fair bit of recent experience with long postseason games compared to Anaheim so I'd think they may well come out a bit sharper for game 3

Are you a Hawks fans?

Just had a quick look at the poll, interesting to see it's the Hawks & Rangers who polled the most votes. 23/10 at Winner for those two to meet in the Stanley Cup Finals.

Tonight I have selected the following:
01:05 NY Rangers @ TB Lightning 50 Win NY Rangers (Money Line)  2.15
"The underdog has won 6 of the last 8 head to head meetings between these teams. Factor in that the Rangers superb road form was a match for the bolts home form (though not in meetings) and my selection tonight is New York."
01:05 NY Rangers @ TB Lightning 50 Win Under 5.0 (Game Totals)  1.76
"After a 6-2 game, the Tampa Bay results sequence in this year's playoffs suggests that tonight will be a 2-1 game, a very familiar resultfor the Rangers this post season."
Good luck everybody!

Sitting pretty at the moment Epic?
Hopefully the Rangers can turn this into a series again tonight although given their record of coming back from 3-1 down, do you really want the Bolts to win tonight :wink:

After giving up 6 goals in each of their last two games, the Rangers have got to play better on defense and I can't see a situation where they'll be as poor as they were in games two & three.

As such, I'm going with the unders tonight

Been two great games in terms of offense. Though, I feel that was bound to happen after Lundqvist played like a brick wall in previous rounds. He'll probably return to that form before the series is over, so I'm hopeful the Bolts can take one more tonight. Though, as you said, Rangers have a great record coming from behind.
If you can't beat them, join them. When will the bookies join OLBG?

Here is my pick for tonight, based purely on stats and deffo not hope:
01:05 NY Rangers @ TB Lightning 50 Win NY Rangers (Money Line) 2.15 bet365
"The telling stat in this situation is that since 2012, when facing elimination in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Rangers Goalie Henrik Lundqvist has 14 wins, 3 losses. When it is all on the line, the King steps up. Rangers in 7."
If the Blueshirts don't win, it will be fitting that several former Rangers will head to the finals with Tampa, most notably the captain, Ryan Callahan. Good luck everybody!

Here's my pick for tonight which I have given a rating of no brainer. Which no doubt means it will lose making me look foolish.
01:05 ANA Ducks @ CHI Blackhawks 50 Win ANA Ducks +1.5 (Puck Line) 1.4 bet365
"So far through the first five games of this series, the Ducks have won 4-1, 2-1 and 5-4 (OT) and have lost 3-2 (OT) and 5-4 (OT). Thus to date they would have won every game given +1.5 goals start. In fact, they have yet to lose a playoff match in regulation this year, with 11 wins and 3 OT losses. No brainer, DUCKS +1.5."
I hope that you all see the theory behind this pick and even though you need to stake big to win big, I hope if you find it useful you will head over to OLBG NHL tips and click YES, not just on mine but on every tip which makes sense. Doing so will no harm your ratings in any way, we can all potentially win more if we find each others tips useful. Good luck everybody!

Good luck Ajayy77. I've called it a day from a betting point of view until the Finals.

Ridiculous stuff in the 3rd period last night from the Rangers. Should pretend that every game is an elimination game & they might win it all
