Rangers vs Lightning: Eastern Conference Game Seven Betting Odds and Advice
New York Rangers own a rock solid elimination game history
It’s hard to argue that history doesn’t repeat itself when it pertains to the New York Rangers. Dating back the 2012 NHL playoffs, the Blueshirts have stared down postseason elimination 17 times and they have won 14 of those contests. During that stretch, the Rangers have played four Game 7 contests at Madison Square Garden – winning all of them by a 2-1 final score. The Big Apple Boys are 4-0 in elimination games during the 2015 playoffs including their 7-3 bashing of the Bolts in Tampa Bay on Tuesday. New York has lost two in a row at home to Tampa in this series but they haven’t dropped three straight contests of any kind at the Garden since mid December in 2013.
Henrik Lundqvist: Blueshirts last line of defense is their most lethal weapon of all
Selected in the seventh round of the 2000 NHL Draft, 205th overall, Henrik Lundqvist has made a lot of teams, including his own, look a little foolish. Of the 204 players chosen ahead of The King that year, only six went on to be selected as an NHL All Star. The Islanders who selected G Rick DiPietro 1st overall and Calgary who took G Brent Krahn with the 8th pick in Round One are wishing for a huge mulligan. Currently tied with Richard Brodeur and Patrick Roy as the only NHL goaltenders with six Game 7 playoff victories, The King takes the Crown with a seventh win tonight. Way more times than not – NYGQK becomes The Wall when the stage is the brightest.
Ranger vs Lightning East Final Prediction: Taking nothing away from the solid regular season and playoff run posted by Tampa Bay, there’s no way we are betting against the Rangers in this contest. New York was down 3-1 versus the Capitals and stormed back with three straight wins. The Bolts had the Blueshirts on the ropes on their home pond up 3-2 in this series and were blown out of the building. If you are tempted by the puck line or the OVER, it’s wise to keep in mind that five of the last six Game 7 wins by the Blueshirts were by a 2-1 final count.
