Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach Free Pick goes in NHL Saturday: Nashville Predators Puck Line -1.5 goals +230 vs Pittsburgh Predators @ 8 ET – Why lay the 1.5 goals here? Well the +230 payback sounds pretty good, each of the first two games have been decided by multiple goal margins, and the Predators have outshot the Penguins by a combined margin of 64-39 so far in this series. In other words, would you truly be surprised if the Preds win this game by 2 goals or more? Of course not! Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne has been much stronger at home than he’s been on the road recently.

Pittsburgh goalie Matt Murray is going to be tested even more here on the road in front of a raucous Nashville crowd that makes for one of the loudest venues in the NHL. 7 of the Penguins last 12 games have been decided by 2 goals or more. 7 of the Predators last 12 games have also been decided by a multiple goal margin. Go for the big payback here as the Preds, in an 0-2 hole and very hungry at home, have a great shot at a home rout win in this one. Free Pick on Nashville Predators on the Puck Line -1.5 goals +230 Saturday. Best of luck, Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach

The Senators forced a Game 7 by winning 2-1 on home ice in Game 6. Craig Anderson has been dominant in these playoffs, allowing just three goals in the first three games of this series. He should bounce back after a bad game here in Game 5 in Pittsburgh. Here is what I said before Game 3: “The Penguins head to Ottawa with this Eastern Conference Final tied at 1-1. Game 2 was a goaltenders duo, with Marc-Andre Fleury edging out Craig Anderson by stopping all 23 shots he faced. The Penguins didn’t beat Craig Anderson until late in the third period, and Anderson has been brilliant in both games so far. I expect to see another low scoring defensive battle here in Canada’s Capital tonight. These two teams have failed to reach the total in four straight meetings, and the under is 5-0 in the Senators last five Conference Finals games. The under is 30-12-2 in Senators last 44 home games.” The last Game in Pittsburgh went over the total, but these two teams only combined to score four goals total in the first two games of this series. With both teams now facing elimination, I expect another low scoring battle.

Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach NHL Tuesday Free Pick UNDER 5 goals (+125) in Ottawa Senators vs Pittsburgh Penguins @ 8 ET – Over the past 5 months – dating all the way back to mid-December – the Penguins have gone 4 straight games without an under only 1 time! That said, the last 3 games have featured 2 overs and a push and I like the value being offered on the under here. Nice plus money return with the UNDER 5 goals in this one. Ottawa knows they have to return to a defensive-minded game after getting completely out-skilled in the Game 5 loss in Pittsburgh.

The Senators found out the hard way that they certainly are unwise to try and get into a fast-paced shootout with the Penguins. That said, and returning to home ice after back to back losses, I look for the Sens to have strong emphasis on defense and clogging up the neutral zone to slow down the Pens skilled forwards in this one. The Senators are fighting for their playoff lives after blowing the 2-1 series lead and the under is 28-15 in Sens games this season when they are playing with revenge. Free Pick UNDER 5 goals in Ottawa Tuesday evening. Best of luck, Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach
