With the second round of the 2019 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs nearly in the books, there have been some noticeable shifts in FanDuel Sportsbook's latest odds to win this year's Stanley Cup.

The Carolina Hurricanes currently boast the best odds to win it all at +320 after extending their series lead over the New York Islanders to 3-0 on Wednesday night. This massive series deficit has also left the Islanders with the longest odds at +2600.

The San Jose Sharks, who have the second-best odds to win the Stanley Cup (+340), currently hold a 2-1 series edge over the Colorado Avalanche and look to extend their lead Thursday night in Game 4.

The Boston Bruins held the third-best odds just a few days ago, but they now find themselves in a 2-1 series hole to the Columbus Blue Jackets. If the Bruins can't even the series in Game 4, their odds will likely drop further than +850.

With that being said, the dust won't settle until June, and seeing as how none of this year's No. 1 seeds made it out of the first round, it seems as though anything can happen in these playoffs.
