With the second round of the NHL playoffs in full swing, we'll take a look back at the series prices from where they started, to where the price sits heading into Game 5 between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Ottawa Senators Friday.

Pittsburgh Penguins vs Ottawa Senators
Penguins lead series 3-1.
Open: Penguins -280, Senators +220
Currently: Penguins -3300, Senators +1400
Any momentum the Senators had after winning Game 3 in dramatic fashion came to a screeching halt in Game 4. Pittsburgh put up seven goals and chased Ottawa goaltender Craig Anderson from the game for the second time in the series.
Boston Bruins vs New York Rangers
Bruins lead series 3-1.
Open: Bruins -159, Rangers +115
Currently: Bruins -1300, Rangers +800
No reason to panic yet if you're Boston, but the Rangers win in Game 4 Thursday could make things interesting in this series. Though chances are slim, three teams have battled back from a 3-0 deficit to win a series in the NHL playoffs. Most recently in 2010 as the Philadelphia Flyers came back to beat, that's right, the Boston Bruins.
Chicago Blackhawks vs Detroit Red Wings
Red Wings lead series 3-1.
Open: Blackhawks -320, Red Wings +260
Currently: Blackhawks +300, Red Wings -400
The Wings have the Hawks on the ropes after they jumped out to a 3-1 series lead. You can't count out the Blackhawks yet, however. Chicago was the top team in the NHL in the regular season and series prices have reflected that fact. Chicago swept the regular season series between the two clubs 4-0.
Los Angeles Kings vs San Jose Sharks
Kings lead seres 3-2.
Open: Kings -135, Sharks +115
Currently: Kings -450, Sharks +350
The home team keeps on rolling in this series. The Sharks evened the series at two games apiece after winning both their home games, but the Kings returned to L.A. and won Game 5 to take a 3-2 series lead. The home team has been dominant at defending home ice when these teams get together and is 14-3 in the last 17 meetings overall.
