Boston are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games against Carolina.

Boston are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games on the road.

Carolina are 7-0 SU in their last 7 games.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Carolina's last 6 games against Boston.

Prediction

The Hurricanes have dominated the Bruins the whole season and there aren't any reason to believe that will change at least when they play at Carolina. The Bruins have scored only 2 goals against the Canes this season so I'm staying with the Hurricanes to win again at home.
