Why Bet on the Carolina Hurricanes?

The Hurricanes start to cool off from a blazing start in the series. Although this is a team that finished second-best in the Eastern Conference with 116 points, there are areas of improvement if they want to bag the Game 6 victory on Thursday night. The team looks to finish off the first-round series after a statement victory in the last game, leaving the Bruins trailing by four goals.

Tony DeAngelo tops the Hurricanes lineup with eight points to his name. He has seven assists to go with his goal, making him one of the most effective players on the ice. Vincent Trocheck is tied with Nino Niederreiter and Seth Jarvis with three goals, while Trocheck and Teravainen combine for eight assists, with four apiece. Meanwhile, Antti Raanta allows 1.96 goals per game in 103 shots faced on all four playoff appearances this season. He is a pivotal component of Carolina’s impressive postseason and is primed to start for the team in this road game.

Why Bet on the Boston Bruins?

After allowing a combined ten goals in the first two games, Boston tightened the seams and worked on the defensive lapses on ice in the next two meetings. They proved why they have one of the best defenses in the season. However, Game 5 looked like a repeat of the first two games. They allowed the Hurricanes to secure five goals and struggled to close the deficit throughout the game.

The Bruins try to keep their hopes alive after a disappointing game. The team boasts one of the best defenses in the league, giving up 2.66 goals per game. Although the side lacks offensive sting, they manage to rank 15th in the NHL with 255 goals in 82 games. The team averages 3.09 goals per game, and if they can maintain this number throughout Game 6, there’s a good chance that Boston bounces back and delivers positive results.
