Free NHL Eastern Conference Playoff Picks, Best Bets, and Parlays for 5/23/22

Yesterday saw the New York Rangers bounce back and with a 3-1 win over the Hurricanes. This was a must-win for them and they rode the play of their defense and goalie, Igor Shesterkin to the victory. But, the Panthers weren’t as fortunate as they lost their third straight to the Lightning by a misleading 5-1 score. These two teams are right back at it tonight and Tampa Bay is bringing out the brooms in anticipation of a sweep. they sorely need.

We cashed our Best Bet yesterday afternoon as the Rangers got that needed win over Carolina. Our Best Bet of the Day record is now 58-42 since the All-Star Break.

We went 2-1-betting the MoneyLine as Edmonton knocked off Calgary to ruin what could have been a perfect betting day. Our overall record is now 374-212 as the playoffs continue.

Let’s take a look at the Eastern Conference game tonight. Can the Panthers suck it up and get a road win at Tampa to prolong the series and send it back to Miami?

*PAPA DUDES BEST BET OF THE DAY* Florida at Tampa Bay: Tampa Bay leads the series 3-0: The story of this series has been the Lightning’s ability to shut down the Florida offense. The Panthers have managed one goal in each of the first three games and that isn’t enough to win very many games. In the regular season, Florida averaged over 4 goals per game and only three times did they fail to score more than one goal. The Florida power play finally broke through with a goal yesterday, but that is their only one of the playoffs. So, they have to find a way to score against the vaunted Tampa Bay lineup and the best goalie in the business, Andrei Vasilevskiy, who has been outstanding. Tampa Bay knows how to win playoff games and close out teams and they are smelling blood like a bunch of hungry sharks. It is very hard to win a Game 4 when you are down 3-0 in a series, especially on the road. I give the Panthers a chance, but the smart money is on the Lightning. PAPA DUDES BEST BET: Bet the MoneyLine on Tampa Bay -130
