The over is 3-1-1 in Bruins last 5 overall.
The Seattle Kraken continue to play surprisingly good hockey, and they've done some of their best recent work on the road. There's value in the underdog role. However, the Boston Bruins have been head and shoulders the best team in the league and I don't think there's any betting against them until they cool off. The Bruins are elite at both ends of the ice, and they're the most profitable team heading into tonight's games. Give me the Bruins and the PL for max betting value.
