Bruins vs. Senators Game 5 Pick

Will the Senators close out the Bruins in Game 5? NHL Predictions 4/21/17

Will the Ottawa Senators have enough in the tank to finish off the Boston Bruins when the two meet tonight at 7:30PM ET in Game 5 of their series?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Boston is actually a slight favorite on the road with -115 odds. Ottawa is listed with a money line of -105 to win. The over/under total for the game is set at 5 goals.

The Senators won Game 4 of the series, 1-0, to take a 3-1 edge in the series. Ottawa has won three straight in the series after losing Game 1 at home, 2-1. The road team has won three of the four games as well. Boston comes into tonight’s game with a 45-32-9 overall record and a 22-14-7 mark on the road. Ottawa is 47-29-10 overall and 23-12-8 at home.

Game 4 didn’t have much scoring, as Bobby Ryan put in the lone goal 5:49 into the third period. The two teams only combined for 49 total shots, with Ottawa holding a 27-22 edge. Craig Anderson earned the shutout with his 22 saves while Tukka Rask did his part for the Bruins, making 26 saves.

Bet on Bruins vs. Senators

It’s funny to see the Bruins as a favorite tonight after losing two games at home and Ottawa having won nine of the last 10 meetings. In those nine wins, Ottawa was the underdog in eight of them. With a 3-1 series lead and nine-of-10 wins, it’s time to maybe admit that the Senators just have Boston’s number. The games in this series have been close, but the Senators have found a way to win time and again. I think they finish this one out at home tonight.
