A tough loss for us last night as the Penguins beat the Capitals 3-2 in overtime.
Pittsburgh had lost the previous eight times they went to OT in the playoffs, but Caps defenceman Mike Weber put it on a tee for Hornqvist to net the winner a few minutes into the first overtime.
Washington’s now down 3-1 and hearing the talk about how they always choke in the playoffs. This doesn’t feel like a choke job if they lose to the Penguins, however; Pittsburgh’s found some magic with Murray in net (now 13-1 in his last 14 starts) and the series has been very close. We won’t be surprised if the Pens finish Washington off in Game 5, and we won’t be surprised if this series goes the distance either.
Two games tonight, with the Stars hoping to bounce back from a 6-1 whipping by the Blues last game to even their series and the Sharks hoping to grab a 3-1 series lead on the Predators.
Good luck with your hockey bets tonight!

San Jose looked like it may be on its way to grabbing a 3-0 series lead in Nashville 2 nights ago, leading 1-0 in the second period before a double-minor for high sticking allowed the Predators to tie the game. That penalty “killed the momentum” of the Sharks, several players said, and Nashville went on to score 3 more unanswered goals even though San Jose held the Preds to 25 shots.
The 4-1 score was very misleading. The Sharks were hardly outclassed or intimidated by playing in Nashville. Now we get a chance to back the best road team in the NHL at even odds in a bounceback spot. San Jose did a good job of stepping on the Kings’ necks when they had the chance in Round 1, winning both Game 4 and Game 5 after LA narrowed the Sharks’ series lead to 2-1, and we like them to take another 3-1 series lead tonight in Nashville.
