Bruins fall in shootout

Boston lost 4-3 in a shootout Thursday night at home against Tampa Bay to drop to 5-1-1 on the season. David Pastrnak continued his strong season with a power play goal midway through the first period to give the Bruins a 1-0 advantage off assists from Patrice Bergeron and Torey Krug. The Lightning tied it up with one second left in the first, but Boston grabbed the lead again with 12:34 left in the second period as Bergeron scored on the power play off assists from Bergeron and Brad Marchand. Tampa Bay tied it up later in the second and took the lead in the third with 4:47 left. Pastrnak evened it at 3:3 at the 3:05 mark on a power play goal with assists courtesy of Marchand and Krug. Boston lost the shootout by a count of 1-0. Tuukka Rask allowed three goals on 36 shots in the defeat. 

Maple Leafs edged at Capitals

Toronto lost by a score of 4-3 Wednesday night at Washington to drop to 4-3-1 on the season. Kasperi Kapanen gave the Maple Leafs a 1-0 lead with a shorthanded goal 4:37 into the first period on an assist by Trevor Moore. Ilya Mikheyev pushed the advantage to 2-0 with 9:02 left in the first with assists going to Kapanen and Justin Hall. The Capitals scored the game's next four goals to lead 4-2 through two periods. Toronto pulled within 4-3 at the 2:33 mark of the third period on a John Tavares goal on assists from Jake Muzzin and Kapanen, but could not find the equalizer. Michael Hutchinson surrendered four goals on 32 shots in the losing effort. 

NHL Betting Trends

Boston

The Bruins are 4-0 in their last four games as a road underdog. Boston is 22-6 in its last 28 games versus the Eastern Conference.

Toronto

The Maple Leafs are 2-5 in their last seven home games. Toronto is 1-6 in its last seven Saturday games.

Prediction:

I love how Boston is playing this season and Pastrnak is having a huge start to his season, which includes six goals in his last two games. The Bruins have had Toronto's number the last couple of seasons and I'm going back to the well again here, especially with Tavares being on the shelf for the hosts.
