TheBruins are 4-0 in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The Rangers are 1-4 in their last 5 home games and 7-15 in their last 22 overall. The over is 4-1 in Bruins last 5 overall. The under is 16-6 in Rangers last 22 overall. The Bruins are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in New York and 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.

The Boston Bruins have owned this series over the years and are easily the better team on paper. However, the New York Rangers have played the better hockey this week and have had the better results. The Bruins defense has slipped lately and they just lost to the Rangers a couple days ago, giving up six goals in the process. The Bruins should win this game, but we're getting the team in better form at home with the plus money. I'll take it.
