Marchand scores winner at Carolina

The second of two Brad Marchand goals with 14:37 left in the third period broke a 2-2 tie and sent the Bruins to a 3-2 victory at the Hurricanes Tuesday night. Marchand had previously tied the score with 18 seconds left in the second. He now has four goals on the season. David Pastrnak added his 11th goal of the season on the power play to also contribute to the win. Patrice Bergeron assisted on all three goals. Jaroslav Halak made 42 saves on 44 shots to earn the victory.

Predators earn win at Lightning

Nashville improved to 10-3-0 on the season Thursday night with a 4-1 triumph at Tampa Bay. Calle Jarnkrok led the way for the Predators with a goal and an assist. Kyle Turris, Roman Jossi and Miikka Salomaki also scored a goal in the victory. Ryan Johansen dished out two assists. Pekka Rinne turned away 42 of 43 shots on goal to pick up the win.

NHL Betting Trends


The under is 6-0 in the last six Bruins games overall. The road team is 5-17 in the last 22 meetings.


The Predators are 7-0 in their last seven games versus the Eastern Conference. Nashville is 4-0 in its last four home meetings versus Boston.


Nashville is playing well again with Rinne healthy and stopping most shots sent his way. The Predators have a deep and talented roster, while the Bruins are still searching for consistent scoring after its top line. I like Nashville here as it has dominated the Eastern Conference lately and is once again proving to be one of the NHL's top teams.
