(The Spread) – Can the Bruins make it three in a row against the Canucks when the two teams battle tonight in Game 5 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals?

The Bruins victimized Vancouver goaltender Roberto Luongo on Wednesday night, touching him up for four goals on just 20 shots. It was Luongo’s second straight poor performance and it led to the Canucks replacing him in net with Cory Schneider. Schneider saved all nine shots that he faced but Boston still prevailed 4-0 and evened up the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals at two games apiece.

Oddsmakers from online sports book Bodog currently list the Canucks as –165 money line favorites over the Bruins, who are +152 on the ML for Game 5. The over/under total for this game is currently sitting 5 goals.

Of the 6,600-plus wagers on Game 5, 52% of NHL public bettors favor Boston +152. There’s no doubt that’s why the line has dropped from Vancouver –175 (open) to Canucks –165.

Game 5 Free Pick: I don’t think there’s any question that we’ll see a better effort out of Luongo and Vancouver’s defense tonight. But that doesn’t change the fact that the value lies with the Bruins, who have proven that they’re better than people expected them to be coming into the Finals. According to latest NHL trends, Boston is 10-2 in its last 12 games playing on one days of rest and 14-6 in its last 20 games overall. This is a Bruins team playing with a ton of confidence right now and don’t be shocked if they flipped this entire series on its head with an upset tonight.
