Game Two : Parlay Power
The power of the parlay propels your profit to the next level if you can catch that proverbial lightning in a bottle. For those not familiar with this type of bet, the StreetBettings.com has this stellar article describing the ins and outs of parlays. What was the most valuable dimension that the Sharks learned was on the defensive side of the puck. Pinching with their aggressive brand of forechecking did not work at all. Part of it was nerves but a lot has to do with the ability to counter punch on the part of the Penguins. This is going to be taken out of the game plan for the second game but can the Sharks conjure another scheme in such a short period of time?
Look at the Totals
This is one of the few teams that can skate with Pittsburgh. The onus is on the Sharks to prove that the Pens goaltender is just a 21 year old. San Jose has to be pretty happy that their goaltender faced over 40 shots and only had one questionable goal of the three slide by. Totals on this game are currently at 5.5 goals with the over near +120. All signs for this game is an entertaining brand of hockey that we can profit on.
