NHL Conference Finals Betting Odds: Panthers Vs Hurricanes, Stars Vs Golden Knights

And just like that, we are down to the final four in the Stanley Cup playoffs. It has been a wild run to this point, which is exactly what we have come to expect from what is arguably the most exciting postseason in the world of professional sports. The Boston Bruins, who had a regular season for the ages, were bounced in the opening round, leaving the Eastern Conference wide open. Things were always going to be tight in the Western Conference given that all 8 teams entering the playoffs were pretty evenly matched from top to bottom. The Conference Finals begin on Thursday night, so let’s take a closer look at the NHL betting analysis of the 4 teams got here and how things might go.

Eastern Conference Final: Florida Panthers Vs Carolina Hurricanes

The Florida Panthers basically backed into the playoffs, nabbing the final Wild Card spot despite losing their final 2 games of the regular season. The assumption was that they would be swept aside rather quickly by the Bruins, but after going down 3-1 in the series, the Panthers reeled off 3 straight wins to move onto Round 2. Things proved to be a good deal easier in the last round, as they took out the Toronto Maple Leafs in 5 games.

The Carolina Hurricanes became the obvious favorite to conquer the East after the Bruins went out. They started things out by beating the York Islanders in 6 games, without ever looking in any real danger, before easily moving past the New Jersey Devils in 5 games. The Hurricanes took 2 of 3 from the Panthers in the regular season, but the playoffs are a whole different ball game.

The Panthers have been a great story, but I think that tale might be coming to an end in this series, although I don’t think they will go quietly.

Western Conference Final: Dallas Stars Vs Vegas Golden Knights

At this stage of the proceedings, you have to say that the Dallas Stars are battle tested. They have had a pair of tough series to contend with to get here, starting out with a 6-game series win over the Minnesota Wild, where they came back from 2-1 down. They were in the same hole against the Seattle Kraken in Round 2 and needed all 7 games to win that one.

The Golden Knights lost their first game of the postseason, but they quickly shrugged that off and went on to win 4 in a row against the Winnipeg Jets. Things were not quite so easy against the Edmonton Oilers in a series that had multiple momentum swings before the Golden Knights finally took it in Game 7.

On the face of it, the Dallas Stars look to be the favorite here given that they won all 3 meetings with Vegas in the regular season. All 3 of those games were defensive battles, with just 12 total goals scored over those 3 games. I would not be surprised to see more of the same here, although I think this series has the potential to go 6 or 7 games, with scoring at a premium.
