There were some incredible results in the first round of the playoffs with one of the biggest upsets in ice hockey history coming when our very own Montreal Canadians sent the Capitals all the way back to Washington. The Capitals were the favourites in betting to win the title before they lost the last of a thrilling game season which saw the end of their season.
The Canadians now have to get past the Pittsburgh Penguins which is another tough ask. The Penguins are strong favourites to progress but a thrilling win for the Canadians on the road in game 2 will see them head home for two home games a real chance of putting themselves in with another unlikely series win. Fairytales do happen and you can still get well over $10.00 for the Canadians to win the Stanley Cup.
The other Canadian side with a really good chance is the Vancouver Canucks that just keep on getting the job done. In game 1 against the Blackhawks they were simply awesome on the road in a five to one goal demolition. Nothing is ever for certain but you would like to think that the Canucks will win this series and progress through to the final four of the competition.
You can still get a great price on the Canucks to win the Stanley Cup at around $5.00. This seems an especially good price with this great start in their series against the Blackhawks.
