Torey Krug opened the scoring on the power play in the first period off assists from Krejci and Patrice Bergeron. Zdeno Chara made it 2-0 later in the first on an assist by Sean Kuraly. Karson Kuhlman put Boston up by three goals with his first goal of the season with assists going to DeBrusk and Krejci. San Jose got on the board with three seconds left in the first and again early in the second, but the Bruins scored again to go up 4-2 as DeBrusk found the back of the net on the power play. Danton Heinen and David Backes assisted on the score. The Sharks proceeded to tie it up with two goals in the last four minutes of the second period.

NHL Betting Trends
The Bruins are 9-0 in their last nine games versus the Pacific Division. Boston is 4-0 in its last four games as an underdog.
The Golden Knights are 2-5 in their last five games playing on one day of rest. Las Vegas is 2-5 in its last seven games versus the Atlantic Division.
Boston is red-hot and there are much worse ways to bet your money on an underdog. The Golden Knights have been up-and-down all season and recently ended a five-game home losing streak. Both teams have equal time off heading into this one and I'm going to put my money on the team playing exceptional hockey.
