Why Bet The Hurricanes:
✅ The Carolina Hurricanes have now defeated the Boston Bruins all five times these teams have played this season. They have not just defeated Boston, but have absolutely dominated them, outscoring the Bruins 26-4 in those five games. Boston has been beaten by at least three goals in all five contests.
✅ The Carolina Hurricanes have now won eight straight games heading for Boston. That includes the final six games of the regular season and the first two games of the playoffs. Carolina has outscored their opponents during the eight-game winning streak 37-18.
✅ The Carolina Hurricanes closed out the regular season by winning five of their final six road games. Carolina was 25-12-4 on the road during the regular season, but were playing even better as the playoffs were approaching. Carolina outscored opponents 25-17 in their last six road games, and seven of those goals came in a 7-4 loss to Colorado.
The Carolina Hurricanes (50-20-8; 41-41 ATS) continue to blitz the Boston Bruins, winning Game 2, 5-2. That gives Carolina a 2-0 advantage in the series as the teams head for Boston for Friday night’s contest. Antti Raanta started out well, stopping all six shots he faced, but left the game with an injury. That necessitated Pytor Kochetkov taking over in relief and he was brilliant, stopping 30 of 32 shots to earn the victory.
Both Frederik Andersen and Raanta will be out for this game, so it will be Kochetkov. He was 3-0-0 with a 2.42 goals-against average and a .902 save percentage during the regular season.
The Boston Bruins (51-26-5; 33-49 ATS) have lots of questions about goaltender Linus Ullmark, who gave up four goals for the second straight game. Ullmark had been solid during the regular season (2.45 GAA, .917 save percentage), but he has allowed eight goals on 65 shots, a .860 save percentage.
Boston must play more disciplined. Carolina had nine power-play opportunities and scored on two of those chances. The Bruins were ninth in penalty killing during the regular season at 81.3%.
