2021 NHL Playoffs

Give me the NHL, or give me death
The Stanley Cup Finals has arrived!!!

Pretty pumped with a very interesting season we just witnessed. There were times I loved the baseball series scheduling and then times when the dominant teams were just making it boring to even watch. It’s really sad that we’re going to get the Toronto/Montreal series without any fans but there are other great series we might not always get: battle of Florida, Chara against the B’s (we didn’t see this coming), I think Colorado/St. Louis may be a little more competitive than most think all depends on Binnington for them.

Some quick notes which were highlighted in the other thread

  • Stamkos and Kuch are back for the Lightning
  • Leafs and Habs are the only team to play back to backs between game 3 and game 4
  • Carlson is back for Washington with Oshie, Kuznetsov and Samsonov all on the mend
SC Finals Futures
Toronto Maple Leafs, 6.50
Vegas Golden Knights, 7.50
Tampa Bay Lightning, 8.50
Pittsburgh Penguins, 14.00

Pretty much, those are the four teams that I see coming out of each of their respective divisions. A little disrespect to Pittsburgh, they look pretty good to me. You're also getting a Malkin who pretty much didn't play half the season. TB we're getting Stamkos and Kuch back (Stammer might get hurt again though). Leafs know the play book on McDavid/Draisatl. Vegas no more cap concerns and can dress exactly who they want

Round 1 Futures
Washington +1.5, 1.75 (series)
Washington to win series, 2.35
Pittsburgh to win series, 1.75
Vegas -1.5, 1.83 (series)
Nashville +1.5, 2.18 (series)

It would be a Toronto thing to win during the pandemic wouldn't it? Florida/Tampa is going to be fire and I can't wait to see the penalties and hits in that game with full capacity in Florida I think? Let's get the money though!

Would keep an eye out on Brian Doumilin; took a shot to the foot and was hobbling a bit. Bigger piece to that D with him in the line up

Boston ML, 1.81; love me some ABAB type betting in the playoffs
Man I thought about chasing my Boston game one loss figuring no way they get swept. But Jesus were they outplayed seven ways to Sunday last night, game should've been 5-1. In my defense I thought Oshie was going to be out.

Did we watch the same game? Boston created a lot of good chances, Tuuka would actually be the worst rated from what I saw peak the xG stats by line. From Teed:

Pasta line: 88.6 xG% at 5-on-5 in Game 1
Krejci line: 53.3 xG%
DeBrusk line: 36.4 xG%
Kuraly line: 18:9 xG%

Parlay: Over 9.5 CWS/Boston ML: 3.37. Played the single over 8.5(see MLB discussion) but by the time I decided to parlay it today the game moved a whole run.

I was hitting the beers pretty good but yes, same game. Felt to me that attacking zone time was heavily tilted towards WSH & hitting most definitely favored WSH.

And I have to admit I have no idea what that stat means with the xG% but I do know that a combined 4 SOG from your top three does not cut it.

Yea, I didn't mean any disrespect by my comment in case it came off like that, below is essentially what xG% means:

  1. xG value is the statistical chance of the unblocked shot to become a goal.
  2. xG is literally the most direct way to measure shot quality that exists, given the current Play-By-Play data
  3. While Corsi and Fenwick count shot attempts, they don't account for quality of the shot. Expected +/- considers the shot location, and uses league-wide averages to determine the likelihood of that shot being a goal. It doesn't factor in whether the shot actually resulted in a goal or not. Instead, it's giving a sense of shot quality by looking at the odds of scoring a goal from that location.

None taken man, all good.

Thanks for the explanation. Maybe I'm an overly critical fan but everyone I've talked to around here shares in my thoughts. Hoping your read is spot-on for tonight though. GL!

Probably like you said, fan being a fan. And Boston fans are a special kind too aren’t they hehe

Taylor Hall AGS, 6.50

Some of the AGS (anytime goal scorer) props I'm looking at. I won't typically take them pre game unless I love them. But in the playoffs I especially like to see how the game is going. For example, Taylor Hall was flying last night and controlling the puck and play while he was on the ice and getting a lot of opportunities. Mackinnon was being fed every other opportunity and they were peppering Binnington so those 2 made sense for me. Ryan O'Reilly, for STL to have a chance, needs to be engaged and producing and thought going down 1-0 and pushing back he would be one of the catalysts, turns out Avs just skated around STL.

Mark Stone, 2.65

Funny that you just posted these, I was just about to ask your take on this prop. Seeing JG Pageau at 1.5, over -135. Looking at his stats from Sunday, 21:28 TOI (highest of any NYI forward), 5 SOG, 2A, 1G & +/- of 2. Any reason in the world he would not continue to see time & rip shots?

one reason will be tightening up of the defenses, but I dn't know if that's enough. NYI sometimes play like the Hurricanes where they'll just start throwing pucks at the net for the sake of a shot to create rebounds. That said, I took Beauvilier and Pulock for 2 reasons; there's goign to be penalties and Pulock gets shots through from the blue line on 5v5. Beau was flying and creating a lot of chances.

They had 5 penalties combined and the top unit for NYI on the PP is Eberle/Pageau/Beau and the point is Dobson/Barzal. It's worth a look really

Hope that helps @Zeke

Thanks for the insight. Usually when I like a play "too much" it doesn't end well. And only two shots seems too easy, so I should tread lightly.

Love having him on the team but I have no idea why someone doesn't just pound the ever-living shit out of him. He's such a prick & takes some of the dumbest after the whistle penalties.

I won't fade my B's in playoffs but Caps +140? Their last 10 or 11 playoff games all one score games with 7 going to OT. That's value if you ask me.

A guy you want on your team but hate when he's not, a la Wilson. He's also gotten so many penalties from reactions after whistles as well. I'm already +135 on the series and have +1.5 Washington...For the sake of my pittsburgh future, I want these 2 to beat the living shit out of each other lol

Seven games & some beat up players is not a stretch but the same could well happen in the other series.

FWIW the lowest price on a game to go to OT tonight is +315. Can bet all three & only need one to hit to cash in at least a +115 profit. Seems like this year more than years past, with such familiarity the first two rounds could see more OT games than we're used to.

Habs will allow fans in their building. Makes it game 6 in the series

I think you're onto something with the familiarity angle, really don't see why not. The east games are more likely to go into OT IMO
