New York Rangers (-140) at Pittsburgh Penguins (G5) (NBC): Too much momentum for Crosby, Malkin and Fleury to bet against, especially at The Igloo in Pittsburgh.Take the better team with the plus and hedge it with the under as Lundqvist absolutely stood on his head in Game 4’s shutout. PENGUINS +130, UNDER 5˝.

San Jose Sharks at Dallas Stars (Versus TV): The Sharks needed to win when they had to in order to force this game but may have left themselves a bit short in the "out" department ... Or, in other words, San Jose can’t afford to lose another game or it’s golf time baby. I’m not buying. STARS.
