The NHL playoffs are back on the schedule today as the Boston Bruins will clash with the Carolina Hurricanes.
Boston is heading into this game after they won the third game with 2-1 to take a strong 3-0 lead in the series.|
On the other side, the Hurricanes need to win here in order to avoid elimination.
Boston Bruins Form
The Bruins have been dominant in this series. This is a chance for them to get into the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time after the 2012-13 season. Their play at the beginning of the playoffs was very inconsistent. However, they have turned it on of late as they won their last six games in a row. Moreover, the Bruins have allowed just 1.75 goals per game over their last 12 games. Therefore, they are in a commanding form with a solid offence and strong defence.
On the offensive side of the game, the Bruins score an average of 2.90 goals per game.
On the defensive side of the game, they concede an average of 2.60 goals per game.
Carolina Hurricanes Form
The Hurricanes were playing well and had some good results before the encounter with the Bruins. However, it seems that they just cannot get their tactics right as they lost the first 3 games of the series. Now, they are facing the prospect of elimination if they lose this game. The Hurricanes scored only 5 goals against Boston so far. Therefore, it is safe to say that they will need to improve their offence if they want to avoid elimination.
On the offensive side of the game, the Hurricanes score an average of 3.17 goals per game.
On the defensive side of the game, the Hurricanes concede an average of 2.45 goals per game.
The Bruins have been dominating so far and it seems that they may eliminate the Hurricanes. However, the question mark is if that will happen in this game. I think that the Hurricanes will give their best to avoid elimination. Therefore, I will take the Hurricanes to win in this one.
