Bruins (-120) at Hurricanes (+100) (5.5)
Pick:
Bruins -120

Tuesday’s tilt was a goaltending battle that Bruins’ G Tuukka Rask ended up winning. The 2-1 Boston victory on the road was a tough one to swallow for the Hurricanes, as they played sound defense throughout but couldn’t find the offense to put a fork in it. They weren’t going to go down without a fight at home due to their energizing crowd in Raleigh. However, we at BettorsInsider are 3-for-3 on sweep predictions this NHL postseason and we think the clock is ticking for Carolina. Quickly.

Boston seems to have the Canes’ number. They’ve gotten some of the best goaltending of Rask’s career this postseason and look like they will continue to ride that high for the rest of this series. We’d be remiss to not pick the B’s here. Grab your brooms, we are in for another sweep.
