Game four was separated by just a single goal and the Ottawa Senators came out the victors 1-0. Game five heads back to Ottawa and the Bruins are in a must-win situation, down 3-1 in the series, and will look to beat the Senators in front of their home fans.
Boston’s offense hasn’t generated a lot in this series and game four was no exception. The Bruins weren’t able to get on the scoreboard and only generated 22 shots on goal.
David Pastrnak and Brad Marchand combined for six shots on goal, all of which actually came from Marchand. Pastrnak has had a rough series and hasn’t been able to get going, something that has hurt the Bruins.
Boston has to find a way to generate more offense from its stars in game five. Otherwise, this series ends in Ottawa and Boston will have an earlier than expected exit from these playoffs.
Goaltender Tuukka Rask had another great performance, allowing just a single goal on 27 shots faced. He finished with a .963 save percentage. He certainly has not been the problem for Boston in this series.
Ottawa had a very gutsy performance in game four, allowing the Bruins to get just 22 shots on Craig Anderson, who saved them all, recording his first shutout of these playoffs.
Coming off of his game three overtime winner, Bobby Ryan netted the winner once again for the Ottawa Senators, scoring in the 3rd period and assisted by Erik Karlsson and Derick Brassard.
Ryan has been the key to Ottawa in this series, along with the wonderful two-way play of Erik Karlsson. If those two play one more solid game, the Senators will move on to the second round.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Ottawa is 3-7 SU in the last 10 games
- The UNDER is 6-1 in Boston’s last seven games
Free Boston Bruins vs. Ottawa Senators NHL Playoff Prediction:
At home, I think Ottawa will wrap up this series. The play of Bobby Ryan has been huge for the Senators and I’m picking him to get another goal and help wrap up this series. Ottawa gets the W at home.
