Boston’s Hockey Betting Playoffs Hopes Damaged by Panthers

A handful of teams in both the Eastern and Western NHL wagering conferences have already clinched a spot in the hockey wagering playoffs.

But others still, like the Boston Bruins are struggling just to get in and an April Fool’s Day sports betting loss to the lowly Florida Panthers did nothing to enhance their post season hockey gambling chances.

The Bruins (36-30-12) need every hockey betting win they can get as the team is currently embroiled in one of the most exciting playoff battles in sports betting.  With the Western Conference NHL betting slots all but locked up, all the drama in the hockey betting world right now is going down in the Eastern Conference.

Florida has been eliminated from the hockey betting playoff race but they still have a crucial role to play in the NHL betting post season picture.  They have the chance to ruin the hockey playoff betting dreams of the team’s that are still in contention.  And the team did just that in the April 1st hockey betting competition between these two teams.

In a somewhat rare road victory in the NHL odds competition for the Panthers, the road team scored an early goal in this hockey wagering matchup and that proved to be the difference maker in this 1-0 Cats hockey betting win.

The Bruins are still in good shape for the NHL wagering playoffs, however, as the team has 86 points through 78 games.  That’s better than the Flyers (currently the 8th seed in the NHL gambling playoff hunt) and just two points behind 6th seed Montreal with a NHL wagering game in hand.

Even though Boston dropped what should have been an easy hockey wagering victory against Florida, its NHL playoff betting hopes still look good.
