Philadelphia Flyers vs Pittsburgh Penguins

Odds from GT Bets: Pittsburg Penguins (-190) over / under 6

The Pittsburgh Penguins are another deadly team that should be on your radar. They do have problem with goals against. They are the only playoff team to allow more than three, but they have a capable offense that can keep up. This includes a power play that has a 23.2 success rate which is the best going into the playoffs. Philly will put up a fight, but they are not match for a Pens team that swept the season series and have notable scorers in Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.

LA Kings vs Las Vegas Golden Knights

Odds from GT Bets: Las Vegas Knights (-136) over / under 5.5

The Las Vegas Golden Knights are the best story of the hockey season.  From an expansion team to a Stanley Cup contender, the Knights are the real deal. In fact Las Vegas provided a prop bet to offset the potential losses on the Knights this season. You can bet on the field (-2000) against the Vegas Golden Knights to win the Stanley Cup. It could get very difficult for Vegas against the Kings tonight. The Kings have experienced Jonathan Quick in goal who is coming off one of his best regular seasons in years. The Kings also have plenty of veterans who have won the Stanley Cup twice in the last seven years. The Knights have a great goalie in Marc-Andre Fleury (29-13-4, 2.24 goals against average), but it won’t be enough to get a win in game one.
