It is all but impossible to overcome, but that is exactly what the New York Rangers are contemplating as their road to the NHL betting finals has hit a significant impediment in Pittsburgh. With the Pens commanding a 2-0 lead in the semi-final match up the chances of the Rangers being featured in this year’s NHL finals odds seems very slim indeed.
NHL betting fans have seen stranger things happen than a team come back from an 0-2 start, but it’s very rare and the way both teams have been playing of late, not many NHL betting finals fans are going to wager on the Rangers digging their way out and making the NHL finals odds this season. And even if New York were to somehow save the series the team would still have to probably face the Flyers in the next round, widely thought to be the best team in the race for the NHL betting finals.
The Rangers have to approach their quest for the NHL betting finals one game at a time and the upcoming game 3 in New York will be do or die for the Rangers if they have any hope of being in the NHL betting finals. If the Rangers fall behind 0-3 in this semifinals NHL betting finals match up the season is all but over. Only once in the history of the NHL betting finals has a team come back from such a hole and NHL finals odds makers would already have penciled in the Pens in the conference finals.
But the Rangers have several factors working on their side as they enter the home leg of their NHL betting finals mission. The New York fans are rabid and should make things tough for the visiting Pens. If the Rangers can win two games at home and even the series they’re dream to play in the NHL betting finals will still be alive and they’ll have a chance to return to Pittsburgh and try and win their. But as the team’s recently futility on the road has proved it would be a very difficult thing to still qualify for the NHL finals odds.
For all intents and purposes it would appear that the Rangers NHL betting finals dream is dead.
