Hurricanes vs. Bruins Prediction

I’m on the under here. The under has been a money machine when these two teams have squared off the last couple of seasons, and both have been playing in their fair share of low-scoring games as of late. I keep saying it as well, that these are two of the best goaltending groups in the NHL and I think this is another one that flies under the total. Give me the under here.
