Round 2 of the NHL Playoffs continues, and the Colorado Avalanche are increasing their odds to win the Stanley Cup. The Avalanche are now +150 to win the cup after opening Round 2 with a 7-1 win and slap shot statement over the Vegas Golden Knights.
The President Cup trophy-winning Avalanche swept the St. Louis Blues in the opening round and have continued to dominate. But the Tampa Bay Lightning have taken a 2-0 series lead over the Carolina Hurricanes with a pair of road wins, and the Lightning's odds (+240) to win the cup have been on the rise from a week ago.
The two underdogs in the Western Conference pulled off Round 1 upsets. The Winnipeg Jets were first, but the Montreal Canadiens climbed back from down 3-1 to win the final three games and knock out the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Canadiens' odds went from +15000 to +2400 as the current longshot to win the Stanley Cup.
