Will The Kings Sweep The Devils?

LA is up 2 games to 0 in this series after winning both of their road games to open the Stanley Cup Finals.  That makes it 4 series in a row where the LA Kings won the first two games of the series on the road.  In fact they are 10-0 on the road in these playoffs after those overtime victories in New Jersey.  Now the question is whether or not the Kings will be able to win a couple of games at home and sweep the Devils to win the Stanley Cup in dominant style and become the lowest seed to ever win the Cup.

The Kings have gone up 3-0 in all 3 of their previous series’ in these Stanley Cup Playoffs and have swept 1 of those series, while winning the other two on the road in 5 games...

For Pittsburgh to have a chance Malkin and Crosby need to get ...

NHL Stanley Cup Finals Betting

The rematch has been set.  It’s the defending Stanley Cup Champions Detroit Red Wings in a rematch with defending and present Eastern Conference Champion Pittsburgh Penguins.  Last year the series took 6 games to decide, but the Wings never looked like they could lose.  This year it’s basically the same Red Wings team against a slightly tweaked Penguins team.  The series odds look like this:

Penguins +135
Red Wings -155

The Red Wings are given a slight edge in this series by the bookies, but in my opinion their edge is actually much higher.  The Wings stormed through the Hawks, even without Datsyuk and Lidstrom for a few games in the series.  (Given Havlat and Khabibulin were also out and those 2 are huge parts of the Hawks team)...
