The NHL playoffs round 3 are ready to go and boy oh boy are there some storylines.
This blog has been an everyday staple in the life of the EBR bettors who want to cash tickets.
GAME OF THE NIGHT - Edmonton Oilers @ Colorado Avalanche
Barstool Sportsbook Odds: AVS -190 Over 7 +110
The NHL never gets this lucky… the two biggest emerging stars of the game will be on full display in this series. McDavid is the best player in the world and that has been a constant in these playoffs.
Mackinnon is so fast and skates almost to the point of danger that he will be going full-on this whole series. Both of these superstars have the ability to go end to end and score if they are given the room to do so.
But that is not the whole story, Draisaitl has more points in the playoffs than most players on 3rd and 4th lines have all season and Makar has shown the ability to be the best player on the ice if you give him a foot of space on the ice. I mean I am excited but business is business and EBR is the business of taking money from Barstool Sportsbook. So for game one here we go.
I think it takes a game to understand how fast Colorado is and I know they played in the regular season and I know the Oilers went 1-0-2 with losses coming in overtime. But this is the western conference finals and the stakes are bigger and playoff speed is different. Can Mike Smith withstand the pressure Avs put on goalies with their movement in the offensive zone? Can the Oilers' D make smart plays in transition? Can the Avs not let the 2 big lines for the Oilers run amuck in this series? I think the Avs will come out fast and get the Oilers to play on the back foot much like the Flames did to them in Game1.
Last series the first 2 minutes of game one Mike Smith was playing with his eyes closed so that is a trend that will continue.
