The Boston Bruins and the Florida Panthers meet in NHL action from the FLA Live Arena on Friday night. Let’s dive into the odds, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


Boston is listed as a -155 road favorite while Florida is a +135 home underdog. The total for this game is set at 6 goals.

Matchup History

Florida’s 6-3 win over Boston in game two on Wednesday made it six straight meetings without back-to-back winners in this head-to-head matchup.


Boston is 63-17 in their last 80 games overall and 44-20 in their last 64 road games while the over is 10-1 in their last 11 road games. Florida is 7-3 in their last 10 games overall and 71-31 in their last 102 home games while the under is 3-1-2 in their last 6 games following a win.


I’m rolling with the Bruins here. Sure, Florida stole home ice in the last meeting, but this just feels like a game where Boston knows the task at hand here. You can ill afford to go down 2-1 in a series like this and it’ll be interesting to see if the curse of the president’s trophy is a real thing. The Bruins have lost back-to-back games twice this season and I’m not banking on this to be #3. Give me Boston here.
