Boston Bruins         

The Bruins dominated Carolina through the first two games of the series and will be looking to replicate those results on the road tonight. However, tonight’s NHL hockey betting odds are favoring Carolina over Boston here. This is somewhat surprising, given the type of success Carolina has enjoyed this season. And although the Hurricanes have looked pretty good in the lead up to this series, they certainly didn’t look sharp through the first two games. Coming off such lopsided wins, Boston has enough confidence to go out and get this road win tonight. Moreover, the fact that they’re not favored tonight makes taking them straight up all that more alluring.

Players to Watch: Brad Marchand (5 G, 10 A, 15 PTS.), David Krejci (4 G, 8 A, 12 PTS.), and Charlie Coyle (6 G, 6 A, 12 PTS.).

Carolina Hurricanes    

Things are looking bleak for Carolina. Not only did they go 0-2 to kick this series off, they were completely manhandled in those games. And since the conference format was adopted back in 1981, teams that take a 2-0 lead in the conference finals are 30-2 overall in the series. Needless to say, Carolina has the odds stacked against them. However, we did see Carolina fall to 0-2 to Washington in the opening series only to come back and prevail. But at the end of the day, it’s one thing to bounce back in the first round of the playoffs. Bouncing back in the conference finals is another ordeal entirely.

Players to Watch: Jaccob Slavin (0 G, 11 A, 11 PTS.), Sebastian Aho (5 G, 6 A, 11 PTS.), and Teuvo Teravainen (7 G, 3 A, 10 PTS.).
