Game: Pittsburgh Penguins at Philadelphia Flyers Apr 15 2012 3:05PM
Prediction: Pittsburgh Penguins
Grade: Loser (-130)
Reason: At 3:05 pm, our selection is on the Pittsburgh Penguins over the Philadelphia Flyers. Pittsburgh outplayed Philly in game 1 of this series and quickly took a 3-0 lead in front of their home fans and looked like they were going to cruise to open the series with an easy victory. But they stopped pressuring the Flyers in the 2nd period and let Philly back in the game and before you know it, the Flyers had tied the score in the third and then went on to win 4-3 in overtime. And it only went downhill for the Penguins from there as they got off to another two-goal advantage in game 2, only to have the Flyers storm back to completely embarrass Pittsburgh and its goalie Marc Andre Fleury by winning 8-5. Now, with their backs completely against the wall, you can bet that the Pens will come out firing early again, but unlike games 1 and 2, they will have to continue the pressure and hard-hitting and play some defense for 60 minutes. This figured to be a tough series and so far it's been tougher than the Pens could have imagined but don't count Pittsburgh out despite the shocking results so far. Indeed, going into the Playoffs, the Penguins were the choice by many to hoist Lord Stanley's Cup at playoffs-end, and the fact that many on this team have been difficult post-season series before will no doubt serve them well in the face of this current adversity. Pittsburgh has won 28 of 44 road games when playing with revenge, and is 13-3 on the road off back to back losses. Meanwhile, Philly is a poor 1-7 at home off a win by 3 goals or more. Take the Pens. As always, good luck...Al McMordie.
