In a game from Stanley Cup playoffs, we will see Carolina Hurricanes at Boston Bruins.
The Carolina Hurricanes have a great chance of stealing home advantage before heading back to Carolina. They played very well against the Bruins in game 1 but they fell apart in the third period. They played without any mistakes until that period and they will be hoping to replicate this performance in game 2 if they are to win anything from this series. The team is averaging 3 goals per game while allowing less than 3 on the defensive side of the game.
The Boston Bruins won their last 4 games and they lead 1-0 in the series. The team is solid on offense, averaging 3.2 goals per game and they are one of the most efficient team when it comes to power play opportunities. They are scoring on 30 percent of these chances. David Pastrnak leads Boston with six goals, Brad Marchand has 10 assists. They are also the better side on defense because they are allowing just 2.1 goals per game.
Boston clearly has the advantage after game 1 but I believe that Carolina will get the job done in game 2 since they gave us good hints about their potential.
