INJURY TO WATCH

Bruins left winger Rick Nash (upper body) and right winger David Backes (leg) are both out tonight. Defenseman Zdeno Chara (upper body) and left winger Jake DeBrusk (upper body) are both out indefinitely. Defenseman Charlie McAvoy (knee) is out until early April. Left winger Anders Bjork (shoulder) is out for the season. For Winnipeg, defensemen Toby Enstrom (lower body) and Jacob Trouba (brain injury) are out indefinitely. Defenseman Dmitri Kulikov (back) is out until mid-April. Goalie Michael Hutchinson (brain injury) is out indefinitely. Left winger Matt Hendricks (lower body) is out until mid-May. Goalie Steve Mason (knee) is out until early April.

BETTING STRATEGY

Boston has playedfive unders in the last six games and is 40-33 on the season for unders. Winnipeg has played three overs in its last five games and is 37-36 on overs. The previous meeting this season back in December saw the Bruins claim a 2-1 victory in a shootout. With the under going 15-5-2 in the last 22 meetings between these franchises, I'm going to side with the under here as the Bruins are fantastic at holding the opposition at bay but are also without a couple playmakers.
