Going up 2-0 or down 0-2 is a huge swing so I'm expecting three very tight battles tonight. That's why I'm riding with The Murley Special on all three games tonight. I'm betting that OT happens in each game. If I go 1 for 3, I make a small profit. 2 outta 3 is a nice night. And if all 3 see OT, it's a week-maker. So gimme "OT? YES" +260 in NYI/PIT, +270 TBL/FLA, and +270 MIN/VGK.
Good luck to all.

2-4-1 Tuesday Night Parlay Playoff Edition
Murls Take: Yesterday's home runs don't win today's games! Am I happy we went 2-0 yesterday on game picks? Of course…but this only makes me antsier to go after it tonight. These playoffs have been amazing top to bottom. Vegas lost on Sunday while handily outshooting the Wild. The team also knows this is a must-win in a difficult series versus the Wild. Vegas is 33-3 when scoring first so expect the Knights to come out flying and try to get that goal. Pietrangelo might never come off the ice tonight. The other team that needs a win is the Pens. Outside of the spotty goalie play, the Pens looked good. Crosby will be ready and still can put a team on his back. I would look to him gobbling up faceoffs and using that to control the play. Also, no one wants to see the Borrellis take a victory lap.
Murls Pick: Penguins 4, Islanders 2; Knights 3, Wild 0
Murley's Best Bet: Penguins money line/Knights money line parlay +175
Sidecar: Bryan Rust anytime goal +210
