Stanley Cup Odds 2017: Penguins Flying After Taking 2-0 Series Lead

The Pittsburgh Penguins battled their way to a hard-fought 4-1 victory in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup final on Wednesday to take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series and improve their odds of clinching the 2017 crown.

Pontus Aberg put the Nashville Predators into the lead before rookie Jake Guentzel hit back to level before the half-time break, but the Penguins soaked up pressure to unleash a second-half assault that decided the fixture.

Guentzel notched a second goal before Scott Wilson and Evgeni Malkin scored within 15 seconds of one another to put the Penguins three up at PPG Arena, leaving their side at short odds of 1/6 (1.17) to take this year’s series.

The Predators were a wildcard for this year’s play-offs, and they now face a huge battle to win the four games needed to claim the title, and the odds are stacked against coach Peter Laviolette’s men, who are 4/1 (5.00) to taste 2017 Stanley Cup gold.
