Super Bowl odds after Steelers draft Najee Harris; Tom Wilson is at it again – fr


Bettors don’t seem impressed with the Steelers’ drafting of Najee Harris. Tom Wilson lives up to his old tricks. And a pair of happy goalie debuts with Pittsburgh ties.

All of this in Tuesday’s “First Call”.


Has Najee moved the number?

BetOnline.ag released their Super Bowl odds after the NFL Draft.

How did the Steelers’ decision to draft Najee Harris impact their chances?

Well, not at all. The Steelers had 33/1 to win the Super Bowl before the draft. They are 33/1 now. The Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens are 16/1 to 18/1. Kansas City Chiefs remain 11/2 favorites.

Meanwhile, the Penguins’ hot run in March and April reduced their Stanley Cup chances. They are now 12/1 to win the championship, the same as the Washington Capitals. He is currently seventh in the NHL.

The Pens were 16/1 on April 1. The Colorado Avalanche is still the favorite at 5/1.


Typical tom

Tom Wilson is there again. This time the Washington Capitals thug… oh, I’m sorry. Did I write “thug”? I meant… the Washington Capitals forward signed up with Pavel Buchnevich and Artemi Panarin of the New York Rangers.

With Rangers taking a 3-2 lead in the second period, Wilson hit Buchnevich in the back of the head as Buchnevich was lying face down on the ice. This sparked a scrum and Wilson slammed Panarin onto the ice, before hitting him on the head as well.

Wilson was misconducted for 10 minutes. Then he bowed to the Rangers before leaving the ice.

The MSG network recapitulated the play during his intermission report. Former NHL goalie Stephen Valiquette tore Wilson apart.

Needless to say, the Rangers were squeamish afterward, as you can see in the reactions of forward Mika Zibanejad and coach David Quinn.

As for the game itself, the Rangers lost 6-3. So with a victory for the Boston Bruins, that means they’re out of the playoffs. The Penguins, Capitals, Islanders and Bruins will be the Eastern teams that advance to the playoffs in a certain order to be determined by the end of the season.

Former Penguins Conor Sheary and Daniel Sprong scored. Wilson added an empty net for good measure. Alex Ovechkin played a shift before leaving the ice after 39 seconds. He had not played in four games due to a lower body injury.

According to head coach Peter Laviolette, Ovechkin was feeling good this morning but was not in great shape after the warm-ups. He tried to skate during the game but was still not ready.

Defender John Carlson returned and played 25 minutes. He had missed the previous two games.

Washington’s victory, coupled with the Penguins’ 7-2 loss to Philadelphia, means the Pens and Caps are tied for top of the East Division with 71 points apiece. The Penguins have three more games to go. The Caps have four.

Boston is third with 68 points. The Islanders are fourth at 67.


A victory for Wexford

Congratulations to Buffalo Sabers goaltender Michael Houser. Born in Youngstown and raised in Wexford, Houser got his first NHL start on Monday. He won a 4-2 victory.

Houser made 34 stops along the way. He is 28 years old. He spent 13 years working with miners before his appeal.


Happy for Kappy

Speaking of goalie wins on his debut, former Robert Morris goaltender Justin Kapelmaster made his American Hockey League debut for the Cleveland Monsters on Sunday night.

And he won a 3-2 victory over the Texas Stars.

Kapelmaster made 26 stops along the way. In his only season with the Colonials, Ferris State’s transfer was 12-14-3 with a save percentage of .929 and a 2.75 goals-against average.
