Rangers vs. Bruins Prediction
The game should be controlled by the Bruins due to a better team and winning momentum on their side. Moreover, they have done amazing at home and are 5-1 in their last 6 in the fourth game of a 4-in-6 situation. Also, they have won 12 times in the past 17 games against the Rangers at home.
On the other hand, the Rangers are 2-5 in their last seven overall. The Rangers have conceded over three goals per game in their previous four games and have struggled to score effectively. They have lost three out of four games on the road and look very uncomfortable in this one too, especially after a loss in their last outing while conceding five goals.
Thus we can expect the Bruins to win this game with a complete team display.
