Boston vs Rangers: prediction for the NHL game
The Boston Bruins are in 10th place in the East, which is outside the playoff zone. The Bruins are delivering solid results, and in the last five matches they only lost once - to Calgary (0:4). But Boston bounced back in the following game and crushed Buffalo with a score of 5:1.
At home, the Bruins lost in regulation in 2 out of 8 games. The first attacking line is the most productive, for example, Brad Marchand had already chalked up more than 20 points.
New York Rangers
The New York Rangers are 5th in the East and they obviously are planning to compete for the Stanley Cup this year. Gerard Gallant worked miracles in the offseason, and now the Rangers look fantastic.
They won the last two fixtures. First, the Rangers recorded a victory over Buffalo (5:4) at home, and then crushed the Islanders (4:1) in the New York derby. The team rarely loses in regulation: they failed to earn any points only in 4 out of 19 games.
In 4 out of 5 games against Boston, the Rangers scored more than two goals.
In 4 out of 5 head-to-head games, the Rangers scored in the second period.
The Rangers are on top form, and we expect them to put up a good fight against the Bruins. Boston often have problems against the Top-5 teams of the East, and we believe they won't be able to use their home advantage. Moreover, the Rangers won most of the previous head-to-head games.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (0) to the Rangers
Prediction: Handicap (0) to Rangers
