Winners of four straight, the Boston Bruins head to Anaheim to take on the Ducks, who have had struggles recently.
With just three wins in the last nine games, Anaheim needs to get back to consistent winning to ensure that playoff birth in the Pacific Division.
Undefeated thus far under Bruce Cassidy, the Bruins have looked fantastic in the last four games. The offense has been better than it has for most of the year, while the defense continues to be good.
Left wing Brad Marchand has been great for the Bruins this season.
He has 25 goals and 34 assists this season, leading the team with 59 points. In his last five games, he has two goals and three assists.
David Pastrnak is a wonderful offensive force for Boston. He has 25 goals and 23 assists, including five goals and two assists in his last five games. He has two multi-goal games over the last five as well.
The defense has looked solid as well, giving up just seven goals in the last four games, including a shutout against the Montreal Canadiens.
Sitting 3rd in the Atlantic Division, Boston needs to continue this run of play in order to ensure a playoff birth.
Anaheim has really struggled recently, losing six of the last nine games. The team hasn’t looked right on either side of the ice, giving up four or more goals in three of those nine games.
The offense hasn’t been nearly as good, putting up about 2.5 goals per game. In the last nine games, the team has scored just 18 goals – two per game.
Despite the recent poor play, the team can really get going thanks to some of the wonderful individual skaters the team has. Center Ryan Kesler has 19 goals this season, along with 25 assists. Over his last five games, he has just a single goal, however.
Richard Rakell leads the team in goals with 22.
He also has 10 assists. But, over the last five games, he doesn’t have a single point and his slump has definitely hurt the Ducks.
Winger Jakob Silfverberg has been playing some solid hockey this season, but even he has struggled in the past few games. He has 17 goals and 19 assists, including a goal and an assist in his last five games.
NHL Betting Trends:
- The Total has gone OVER in three of Boston’s last five games
- Anaheim is 3-6 SU in the last nine games
