Boston Bruins (46-18-12) at Carolina Hurricanes (42-26-6)

Boston bounced back in game three despite the loss of David Pastrnak from the forwards group and Tuukka Rask who opted out, but it just looks like next man up for the Bruins who came together big time for the win. Carolina lost Andrei Svechnikov for the foreseeable future and possibly the rest of the playoffs and while Carolina has some veterans, the Hurricanes’ young core may not be prepared to handle a loss like that as Svechnikov was a big part of Carolina’s top line, sitting 2nd in playoff scoring with 7 points and a team-high 4 goals in 6 games. I think Boston pounces all over Carolina here so I’ll take the Bruins as my premium pick for this game.
