Wednesday NHL Playoffs: Thiessen picks Boston Bruins at New York Islanders as Isles look to clinch
Boston looks to stay alive on the road, with Islanders looking to move into semifinals
A Game 6 closeout contest at home can be a daunting task.
Bookmakers have made Boston the favorite on the road tonight in New York, with the Islanders looking to set up a rematch of last season’s East Conference Finals against defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay.
I think that this could go the distance, with the Bruins coming out tonight and leaving everything out there. But as it has been in this round, these close games could go either way, and a bounce or a deflection could be the difference.
