May 10th could very well be the last day of the NHL hockey betting action for the Flyers and the very last chance this team has of keeping its Stanley Cup betting dreams alive. Down 3-1 the Flyers have zero margin for error in this hockey betting matchup and even though they staved off the hockey betting sweep, it’s unlikely they’ll be able to prevent their departure from the NHL playoff betting action on Monday night.
The Boston Bruins have been quietly impressive so far in the race for the Stanley Cup betting action and they just might be the best team in hockey betting right bow. In Round One of the Stanley Cup betting playoff action Boston dispatched a very good Buffalo Sabres team and are now just one win away from dispatching a surprising Philly team that knocked off the #2 seed in the Eastern Conference hockey betting competition.
But Philly has been outmatched since the drop of the puck in Game 1 of this Stanley Cup betting matchup and even though it got the Game 5 win on its home ice in a thrilling 5-4 OT matchup, the win simply delayed the inevitable and sooner rather than later the Flyers Cinderella run in the 2010 NHL playoff betting action is going to come to an end.
Boston is favored in the hockey odds to close out this series tonight in the Boston Garden and it would hard to bet against this team. It has quietly toiled in the hockey betting shadows with little fan fare or much respect from NHL betting experts. But this is the team that nobody wants to play in the NHL playoff betting action.
The Bruins are not the most talented team in the NHL postseason betting action and its far from the healthiest, but it plays together as a team better than any other franchise still alive in the hockey betting odds action.
This team knows well what its limitations are and it makes up for any short comings by playing smart team hockey and physically attacking its opponents. Many NHL betting fans might refer to it as “thuggery” but don’t be fooled, it’s smart hockey and it’s the reason why this team will be playing in the Eastern Conference hockey betting finals.
