NOTE: PHX has not allowed more than 2 goals in every game on the road in these playoffs (4-2)...
BUT... The Desert Puppies have been outscored 10-3 in the first three games vs the Kings.
The Under-4.5 is a strong play but I agree with LeRinkRat... You never know with these elimination games. This game could be 0-0 late in the 2nd period... then 1-1 at end of the 2nd... and WHEN LA would get a 2-1 lead they could easily add 2 ENG's since they have been hitting them in these playoffs.
But I also agree with what you said about these low totals being dangerous to play... ANYTIME you select Under-4.5 you are playing with fire in a pile of dry leaves.
I think KINGS in RegTime is the best play again... just like in game 3... My Best Guesstimate is Kings-2 PHX-0 for the WCFinals series clinching win...
I could easily see this game being a mirror of yesterdays NJD/NYR game 3 which as we know was won by the NYR 3-0 after being scoreless for the first two periods.
PHX-Smith 8-6 with a 2.02 GAA and a .942 SV%
LAK-Quick 11-1 with a 1.41 GAA and a .951 SV%
Good Luck with the Under-4.5... ... I will be rooting for you (and Quick to get a shutout)...
