Carolina Hurricanes at Boston Bruins
Tuesday, December 3, 2019 at 7:00 PM (TD Garden )
BOS -155 O/U 6
The Carolina Hurricanes visit Boston, Massachusetts to play the Boston Bruins at TD Garden on Tuesday. The Carolina Hurricanes are coming off of a 3-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Hurricanes got out to an early lead scoring all three of their goals in the first period to close out the game early.
The Carolina Hurricanes are having a bit of an average season with their record as 16-10-1. The Carolina Hurricanes are a very good defensive team, only allowing 2.81 goals per game, which is eighth in the league. Petr Mrazek will likely start in goal, Mrazek only allows 2.68 goals per game and has a .901 save percentage this season.
The Bruins have a record of 19-3-5 on the season and a record of 11-0-4 at home on the season. The Boston Bruins are playing exceptionally well this season as they are top of the Atlantic Division and they have one of the leading point scorers in all of the league in Brad Marchand who has 43 points right now. However, there is a fear that Marchand may miss this game with an injury, and that may play a big factor in the game.
Carolina is 12-15 ATS this season.
Under is 4-0 in Hurricanes last 4 vs. Eastern Conference
Boston is 14-13 ATS this season.
Over is 4-0-1 in Bruins last 5 Tuesday games
In just about every game that Boston plays in, they are the favorites and this game is no different. Boston should be the favorites as they are one of the best teams in all of hockey and having an incredible record at home. However, with Brad Marchand possibly out of the game it does make a Carolina victory slightly more possible, however, I do not see Carolina being able to pull off a victory here. I think Boston wins this one. Final Score Prediction, Boston Bruins wins 5-3
