NHL Conference Finals Props

We’ve completed two rounds of the NHL postseason and whittled the field from 16 teams down to four. Three division winners remain in the field, along with a second-place finisher. Florida dispatched Boston in six games in their second-round matchup to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals. They’ll face off with the New York Rangers, who eliminated Carolina in six games, helped by a four-goal third period in Game 6 to erase a two-goal deficit.

Meanwhile, the Western Conference brings us a matchup featuring the Edmonton Oilers, who survived shaky goaltending and playing on the road to edge Vancouver in Game 7 of their series Monday night to advance. Standing in their way to reach the Stanley Cup Finals are the battle-tested Dallas Stars, who eliminated the defending champion Golden Knights in seven games in the opening round before downing the Avalanche in six games in the second round.
