Boston Bruins vs Toronto Maple Leafs Game 6 (TOR Leads 3-2)
Money Line: Boston-102/Toronto-118
Puck Line: Boston-290/Toronto+237
This series has gone back-and-forth from the start with neither team winning back-to-back games, and today should continue that trend. Toronto won the most recent game by a score of 2-1, with all three goals coming in the third period. The Leafs managed to win the game despite losing 63.5% of faceoffs and allowing three power plays to their one, while also being out hit (26-30) and out shot (27-29). It will be a tough road game while facing elimination, but if the Bruins can dominate the faceoffs and out shoot the Leafs again today, they should be able to get the win. The Bruins and Maple Leafs will be heading to a deciding Game 7 in back-to-back seasons after a close Game 6 that comes down to the wire.
Boston 3 – Toronto 2
San Jose Sharks vs Vegas Golden Knights Game 6 (VGK Leads 3-2)
Money Line: San Jose+150/Vegas-173
Puck Line: San Jose-180/Vegas+155
After getting dominated in three straight games, the San Jose Sharks came back in Game 5 for a little dominance of their own. The Sharks won 5-2 to force a Game 6. San Jose was the more aggressive team from the start, out hitting the Golden Knights 34-23. Goalie Martin Jones had a much needed bounce back game where he stopped 30-of-32 shots (.938). Goals have been piling up this series and both teams have been playing fast from the start and today’s game should be no different. The goals will pile up with the way these two offenses are playing, but if one goalie is going to make a couple of key stops over the other, it will be Marc-Andre Fleury over Jones. Vegas takes the series in another high scoring game thanks to some clutch goaltending by Fleury late in the game after some early scoring by both teams.
