Opening Odds: When oddsmakers from online sports book Bodog released the opening odds for Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals, the Canucks were –190 money line favorites over the visiting Bruins, who are currently +173 on the ML. The over/under total for this game opened at 5 goals.

Line Movement: The line hasn’t moved much at most sports books, although the Canucks are anywhere from –188 on the money line to –200. The total has stayed consistent at 5 goals since the odds opened for this game.

Trends: According to latest NHL trends, the under is 4-0-1 in the last five meetings between these two teams, and 4-1 in the Canucks’ last five playoff games as a favorite. The Bruins are 12-5 overall in their last 17 games, while the Canucks are 38-15 in their last 58 contests overall.

Public Betting: Of the 1,500-plus wagers on Game 2, 55% of NHL public bettors favor the Canucks –188. But clearly some bettors see value in the Bruins after they hung with heavily favored Vancouver in Game 1.

Game 1 Rewind: It took nearly three full periods for the first goal of the Stanley Cup Finals to be scored. But at 19:41 into the third period on Wednesday night, Raffi Torres put one past Tim Thomas to lift Vancouver to a 1-0 victory and a 1-0 series advantage. Obviously both goaltenders were fantastic on the night, as Thomas saved 33 of 34 shots and Roberto Luongo saved all 36 shot attempts that he faced.
