On Saturday, game two of this Easter Conference first round between the Boston Bruins and Ottawa Senators gets underway.
Boston took a close game one 2-1 and got some wonderful performances in goal and on defense. The team will look for more of the same on Saturday.
Boston played a very good game on the defensive end, holding Ottawa to just 27 shots. Tuukka Rask was great in goal, giving up just a single goal and grabbing 26 saves on those 27 shots.
The story on defense was the play of Charlie McAvoy, a rookie who just signed his entry level deal and was playing in his first ever NHL game. He had over 24 minutes of ice time and looked fantastic and stifled bigger, more experienced players like Kyle Turris.
Boston will look for a more convincing performance on offense in game two. The Bruins were held to just two goals on 25 shots, both in the 3rd period. Frank Vatrano struck first to tie the game and then Brad Marchand scored the game winner.
Ottawa started off the game well, keeping Boston at bay on offense and a Bobby Ryan goal in the second period got the team going. However, the Senators couldn’t find much offense after that and ended up giving up two goals in the final period to lose the game.
Boston’s goaltending and defense was fantastic, holding Ottawa to just 27 shots, but the Senators needed to play more aggressively and find ways to get the puck to the net.
Bobby Ryan was by far the best offensive weapon for Ottawa. He had the game’s first goal along with six shots on goal. He’ll certainly be an important option for the Senators in game two.
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 Game 2 NHL Playoff Prediction:
Boston’s defense helped the team win this game, holding Ottawa to one goal and escaping despite not having the greatest offensive game itself. I think Boston will have a better all-around performance on Saturday and steal another win on the road.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Boston -120
Boston won a close game in game one but definitely will look for a better all-around performance in order to steal another one on the road against Ottawa. I like the Boston money line in this one.
