Tampa seems content to let Carolina and Florida cut their own throats for the first seed, only to be upset by an in-the-zone Anton Khudobin in the First Round. They have been going through the motions a bit with a comfortable spot for playoff seedings. They're also throwing Curtis McElhinney out tonight. He's looked more like the back-up of old lately. Columbus has lost 7 straight and Chiclets alum Elvis Merzlikins is in their cage tonight. The bet here is the BJs wake up tonight and catch a bored Lightning team. Give us Columbus money line +220. And a small play on them -1.5 +450.
Good luck to all.
Friend of Spittin' Chiclets, son of The Capital District, and 17-year pro Matt Murley will also be sharing his picks here as well.
Philly Flyers @ NY Rangers (ML -180, O/U 6)
Murls Take: "Buy a round to get a round boys!!" I can smell the weekend and I need a win. There are great places to watch the game in NYC whether you are in Murray Hill or the Upper East Side. The Rangers are headed in the right direction and the Flyers are looking for tee times. Stay the course and cash the tickets. We are on the Blue at home!! Suck it Gritty.
Murls Pick: Rangers 5, Flyers 2
Murley's Best Bet: Rangers three-way -112 (regulation only) and sidecar on the PL +135
