We have reached the Eastern Conference Finals and what a matchup we have. In this one the Carolina Hurricanes and the Boston Bruins face off at TD Garden.
These teams have played three times so far this year with the Bruins winning two of the three games. The last game it took overtime but the Bruins came out ahead 4-3.
Coming into this season the expectations were low for the Carolina Hurricanes but that didn’t both them at all and here they are only four wins away from the Stanley Cup Final.
After winning the last two games in the series against the Capitals they dispatched the Islanders in easy fashion winning all four games.
The defense was strong all series giving up only a total of five goals in the four games but in the last two games the talking point was the offense.
In each of the last two games they scored five goals and they are going to need to have that offense rolling early and often in this series.
The Hurricanes will be without Trevor van Riemsdyk after he had shoulder surgery and that is a big loss but they have been playing without him for a while.
The Boston Bruins haven’t had as easy of road to get this point but they are here and that’s all that matters. In the last series against the Blue Jackets, they won their first game of the series and everything looked to be going good.
In game two and three the offense forgot to show up and that led to them losing two straight games and all of sudden they looked to be in trouble.
Down 2-1 in the series they reeled off three straight wins and that led to them this point right now. These teams are very similar but one place the Bruins do have an advantage at home is with the defense.
On the season they are giving up only 2.42 goals per game on their home ice and against an offense that is hot that defense is going to need to be strong.
