Nux for 2 units.....and this isnt just a contrarian play.......Yes Boston was dominant over the last 2 games, i readily admit that..........but Vancouver is coming back home.....this series to me looks like a HOME ICE series........i even see the Nux winning this game by 2 or more goals ( alittle payback for the past 2 games)

Just shocks me how everyone is on Boston tonight.........sometimes value is Fools gold.....

 

Good luck with everyone tonight

I can't fathom why anybody would even consider the 'Nucks tonight.  Think about it.  For all their "greatness" they struggled mightily to take the first two home games.  Then they want on the road and got DOMINATED. 

So now we have a Canucks team, with shaken confidence, at home in what is basically a must-win game, against the team that just thrashed them two in a row and gave them all they could handle at this venue in the first two.

And I am supposed to lay -220 on this team?  I don't mind losing bets.  But I hate losing stupid bets.  I never cry over losing the right bet, and I think you can figure out what the right bet is tonight if you clear your mind and see this series for what it is, rather than how you perceived it before it started.

the line I have is -170 and not -220.....bottom line is the series is tied 2-2, with the Nux coming home for a must win.....in Hockey Momentum is the NEXT goal.......so all this great karma that everyone is talking with the Bruins can all change with ONE canucks goal.....its funny how this game works......heading to Boston, everyone thought the series was OVER.......now heading back to vancouver everyone thinks the series is over yet again (but in the opposite direction)

I never felt like the series was over.  What I saw in Vancouver were two evenly matched teams, and the home team won in close games as you might expect.  What I saw in Boston was a HUGE mismatch, and one team that looked dominant over the other.  I don't feel like the series is over, but if not for a few breaks the Canucks got in those first two games, it would be.  I'll lay my money on the team that came a few breaks away from the sweep, and sleep well even if I lose.

BOL with your wagers, but don't confuse the Van blow outs as Bos dominance as it was more Van rolling over. 

Nucks on home ice are a different animal. Their backs are against the wall tonight, so expect a very impressive performance from them tonight.  My only x-factor is Lou. If he plays well, this game won't be close, if he's shaky again which I expect, I see an OT game.

"but don't confuse the Van blow outs as Bos dominance as it was more Van rolling over. "

I have been fan of the Nucks all year (gambling wise). They won me a good amount of money on their team totals going over all year long. If Vancouver "rolled over", is that really the sign that they are the Champions everyone thought they were?

I dont really care who wins the cup, just wanted to see a good series, which I think we have so far. 

That being said, I would appreciate if Luongo lets a couple of soft goals in tonight...............

Over 5 for me tonight,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

lol, agreed ICEman83.  Vancouver is a very unique team.  In their minds, when they are down, the shut down b/c to them a loss is a loss.  They don't have the heart to keep fighting. How many times have they been blown out in these playoffs. 

They are an anomaly.
