Boston vs Carolina: prediction for the NHL game
Boston suffered crushing defeats in the first two games at Carolina (1:5 and 2:5). Goaltender Ullmark was unreliable in both games and saved only 85% of the shots. Back at home, the Bruins beat the Canes twice, thus leveling the score in the series. In the last game, however, the Bruins looked poor and lost by four goals again. Today they will hope to capitalize on their home advantage once again.
Carolinacan secure their quarterfinal berth if they win today. The team was excellent on offense in the last game and crushed the Bruins with a score of 5:1. However, the Hurricanes only won at home during this round of the playoffs, and today they will have to face the opponent in Boston, where they struggled to deliver a solid defensive performance in the previous two games (2:4 and 2:5).
In the last 4 head-to-head games, the teams scored in each period.
Carolina scored first in the last 5 head-to-head games.
Boston looked great at home in the previous two games, and we believe that today they will get another win. Carolina, on the other hand, struggle on road trips. We doubt they can end this series today.
Our prediction - Boston to win
The teams usually score a lot in head-to-head games due to their open attacking style of hockey. We suggest taking the over.
Second bet - total over 5.5 goals
