As Ive aid before, the Boston Bruins are the best team in the league and the most profitable team for bettors. The Chicago Blackhawks don’t do much of anything right, playing at home hasn’t helped much, and they’ve already moved off many key players. The best team against a squad in tank mode. Give me the Bruins and the PL to shave the juice.
