The Line: Boston Bruins -202 / Carolina Hurricanes +181 --- Over/Under: 5.5
NHL action comes to TD Arena where the Boston Bruins host the Carolina Hurricanes.
The Carolina Hurricanes playoff push has hit a snag lately with the team suffering through a four game slide where the team has been outscored 15-4. Carolina comes off of a 3-1 loss at Detroit where Noah Haniflin scored the lone goal in the second.
The Red Wings offense came off the sticks of Danny DeKeyser, Henrik Zetterberg and Trevor Daley. Jimmy Howard picked up the win for Detroit with a 28 save performance while Scott Darling stopped 19-22 to get the loss.
The Boston Bruins have been one of the most reliable teams in the NHL so losing streaks have not been common. Boston has lost consecutive contests following a 4-1 defeat at the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday. Charlie McAvoy scored for the Bruins in the second period on assists from David Pastrnak and Brad Marchand.
The balanced Sabres attack featured four different players scoring with Benoit Pouiliot, Kyle Okposo, Evan Rodrigues and Marco Scandella all lighting the lamp. Buffalo received 34 saves from Chad Johnson who improved to 5-10-3 with the win.
Under is 4-0 in Hurricanes last 4 vs. Atlantic and Hurricanes are 0-4 in their last 4 after scoring 2 goals or less in their previous game and Hurricanes are 0-5 in their last 5 overall. Bruins are 7-0 in their last 7 in the third game of a 3-in-4 situation and Bruins are 4-0 in their last 4 vs. Metropolitan and Bruins are 11-0 in their last 11 after scoring 2 goals or less in their previous game. Home team is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings and Hurricanes are 2-6 in the last 8 meetings in Boston and under is 6-2-2 in the last 10 meetings.
The Bruins have been one of the best teams in the game and hopefully the team gets back in the win column…
