Preview

The Boston Bruins and the Carolina Hurricanes meet again at the PNC Arena in Carolina to play the Game 5 of the playoffs 1st round in the East. The Bruins won the last 2 games at home 4-2 and 5-2 to tie the series.

Boston Bruins

The Bruins have lost 3 of their last 5 games and are 25-18 on the road. Boston has a 53-28-5 record overall ranking 4th in the Atlantic Division. The Bruins are 33-19-2 in conference play. Boston ranks eighth in the Eastern Conference recording 8.4 points per game, averaging 3 goals and 5.3 assists.

Marchand has 32 goals and 47 assists for the Bruins. Patrice Bergeron has eight goals and seven assists over the last 10 games.

In their last 10 games the Bruins are 6-4, averaging 3.1 goals, five assists, 5.1 penalties and 11.4 penalty minutes while giving up 2.5 goals per game.

Carolina Hurricanes

The Hurricanes have lost their last 2 games against the Bruins and are 31-12 at home with a 56-22-8 overall ranking 1st in the Metropolitan division. The Hurricanes are 32-16-6 against Eastern Conference opponents. Carolina ranks fourth in the Eastern Conference averaging 5.8 assists per game, led by Tony DeAngelo with 0.6.

Nino Niederreiter has scored five goals and added three assists over the past 10 games.

In their last 10 games the Hurricanes are 8-2, averaging 4.1 goals, 6.5 assists, 4.9 penalties and 10.3 penalty minutes while giving up 2.6 goals per game.

BETTING TRENDS

Boston are 8-4 SU in their last 12 games.

Boston are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games against Carolina.

The total has gone OVER in 6 of Carolina's last 6 games against Boston.

Carolina are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games at home.

Prediction

The Bruins took control of the series at home beating the Canes in the 2 games but now they return to the PNC Arena where the Hurricanes are winning the 72% of the time this season. With the Bruins carrying some momentum this should be a much closer game and with Carolina scoring 2 gpg in their last 2 games I think the best play is the under as I think it will be a more defensive game.
