Boston Bruins vs Florida Panthers Prediction

The Boston Bruins are pretty much playing for their season, as they can’t afford to go down 3-1 in this series. The Bruins have also won 5 of the last 7 games against the Panthers, so there’s still some hope for Boston and reason to consider the plus money. With that said, the Panthers are the more talented team by a decent margin, and the fact they’ve outscored the Bruins 12-3 in the last 2 games is really all you need. In those two wins, the Panthers have 66 shots on goal to the Bruins 32 shots on goal. It’s been complete domination and while it takes just one game for momentum to flip, I’m going to ride the hot hand and side with the Panthers for a 3-1 lead.
