Bruins clamp down on Islanders

Boston secured a 3-1 home victory Tuesday night over New York to improve to 29-17-7 on the season. Patrice Bergeron gave the Bruins a 1-0 lead 2:32 into the second period on a goal assisted by David Pastrnak and Brad Marchand. The Islanders evened it up with their lone goal later in the second, but Boston put it away with a pair of third-period scores. Peter Cehlarik scored the go-head goal at the 13:26 mark on an assist by Kevan Miller. Bergeron added his second goal of the game and 18th of the season to make it 3-1 with 55 seconds remaining off assists again by Pastrnak and Marchand. Tuukka Rask recorded 28 saves on 29 shots in the win.

Rangers fall at home to Kings

New York dropped a 4-3 overtime decision at home Monday night against Los Angeles to drop to 22-22-8 on the season. Chris Kreider scored 8:32 in to give New York a 1-0 advantage as Tony DeAngelo and Mika Zibanejad recorded assists. The Kings evened the score later in the first, but Zibanejad gave the Rangers the lead back 32 seconds into the second on a goal assisted by Mats Zuccarello and Marc Staal. After Los Angeles again tied the score in the third, an unassisted goal by Adam McQuaid put New York back ahead 3-2. Los Angeles proceeded to even the score with one minute remaining in regulation and then won it in the first minute of overtime. Henrik Lundqvist surrendered four goals on 30 shots in the losing effort.

NHL Betting Trends

Boston

The Bruins are 6-1 in their last seven games playing on zero days of rest. Boston is 4-1 in its last five road games.

New York

The Rangers are 5-2 in their last seven games played on one day of rest. New York is 16-35 in its last 51 games versus the Eastern Conference.

Prediction: 

Boston played yesterday and will likely be turning to backup goalie Jaroslav Halak here, while the Rangers are able to go with Lundqvist. While the latter is not the star he used to be, he's still capable of turning in a gem. With the Bruins coming in tired, I'm going to take a shot on the Rangers on their home ice.
