The NHL playoffs bring more excitement today as the Carolina Hurricanes will clash with the Boston Bruins. This will be their 2nd game of the series and the Bruins managed to win the first game with a score of 5-2. This is a best-of-seven series knockout phase.
Carolina Hurricanes Form
The Hurricanes have been playing very well this season. Moreover, they went into this series as they won their last 6 games in a row. Also, they were in commanding form in the games against the Islanders in the 2nd round. However, they were not able to maintain that momentum as they lost the first game against the Bruins with a score of 5-2. They will now look to bounce back and hope that they just had a bad day in the first game.
On the offensive side of the game, the Hurricanes score an average of 3.00 goals per game in the postseason which is enough for the 5th spot in the league in scoring.
On the defensive side of the game, Carolina is conceding an average of 2.50 goals per game which is enough for the 4th spot in the league in scoring defence.
Boston Bruins Form
The Bruins had a decent season this year but never managed to stay in dominant form. However, they have really turned it on of late as the Bruins enter this game having won their last four games in a row. Also, their offence has been in commanding form as they outscored their opponents with 16-6 in the last 4 games.
This is a good team and it seems that is always ready to step up in the playoffs.
On the offensive side of the game, the Bruins score an average of 3.21 goals per game which is the best scoring record in the playoffs so far.
On the defensive side of the ice, the Bruins concede an average of 2.14 which is also the best defensive record so far in the postseason.
The Hurricanes had a really good season during the regular part. Also, they were dominant against the Islanders. However, it seems that they do not have enough firepower to compete with the resurgent Bruins at the moment.
On the other side, the Bruins are the best team in the playoffs so far and they are constantly improving their form. They are a team that steps up in the big games. Therefore, I expect another won for Boston in this game.
