New Jersey Devils DFS Spin
Mackenzie Blackwood stopped 22 of 27 shots in a 6-3 loss to the Rangers Saturday afternoon. Blackwood has been in a freefall lately, allowing at least three goals in each of his last seven starts. Consequently, he's also lost six of his last seven contests.
Boston Bruins DFS Spin
Patrice Bergeron was not at practice Saturday. Coach Bruce Cassidy did not say that Bergeron was injured when he met with the press after practice so we will assume he was given a maintenance day off. Greg McKegg centered Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak at practice so if Bergeron is unable to go on Sunday, you know who will center the top line.
Devils vs. Bruins Prediction
The under is 7-1-1 in the last nine meetings between these two teams in Boston and is 4-0 in the last four meetings overall. The under is also 3-0-1 in Boston’s last four games playing on one day of rest, is 6-1 in its last seven games when facing an opponent with a winning percentage belowve .400 and is 4-1-1 in the Bruins’ last six home games.
