Bet on Bruins vs. Senators

Boston is dealing with some injuries leaving players questionable, especially at the defenseman position. Adam McQuaid suffered an upper body injury during Game 2 and is questionable today. The Bruins were still close to sweeping Ottawa on the road in these first two games. Returning home should give Boston a boost and allow it to take a 2-1 lead in the series.
