Carolina Hurricanes vs Boston Bruins Prediction 4/5/16 Profitable Hockey Picks and NHL Hockey Starting Goalies Tonight
The Hurricanes are coming into Boston after a 5-1 loss at home to the Blue Jackets, adding to their losing streak where they’ve fallen in seven out of their last ten games. Boston hasn’t been doing much better lately, losing seven of their last nine. Still, the Bruins hold the upper hand in this series, winning four of their last five home games against the Hurricanes. They’ll have to win tonight in order to stay alive for the playoffs.
The Hurricanes (34-29-11) were dealt a heavy blow by the Blue Jackets this week, putting the final nail in the coffin for their playoff dreams. They’re seven points out of the final spot in the East, and just have three games left to play, so at this point a win here would be a spoiler for Boston. Cam Ward will get the start tonight against the Bruins. He’s 22-26 on the year, and 13-18 against the Bruins in his career. Carolina has struggled all year to score, coming in 26th in the league in scoring.
The Bruins (41-30-7) are in ninth place in the Eastern Conference, just one point behind the Flyers, with three games to go, so they need a win here. They lost badly against the Blackhawks, who also needed a win for some momentum going into the playoffs, but in the process it pushed this Boston team into a position where they likely don’t want to be right now. Tuukka Rask will be in the net here, after being pulled from the Blackhawks game after allowing the first four goals. Rask is 30-29 this season, with a 2.60 GAA.
Carolina Hurricanes vs Boston Bruins Prediction 4/5/16
The Bruins need these two points tonight in the most desperate way. However I stopped trusting them the past 1-2 weeks and Rask doesn’t seem to be Rask right now. This is a long shot but with the odds, I recommend backing the Hurricanes
