New York Rangers vs. Boston Bruins Predictions

Score Prediction Bruins 4 Rangers 2

Still have no idea where the energy is going to come from the Rangers as I doubt this team has much interest in playing spoiler for whatever seed Boston would prefer to have.

After the last three meetings between these two have all been 4-0 shutout wins (Boston's won twice), and the season series sitting at 1-6 O/U this year, I do think we get a more freewheeling game than we ever have between these two this year.

The Rangers have had recovery time that they didn't have prior to that 4-0 loss on Thursday, and I think they bring at least some energy because of it. Off a shutout loss this year, the Rangers have followed up with an average of 2.66 goals per game, and off a shutout win, Boston's allowed an average of 3.2 per game.

That' enough to think the Rangers will do their part to get this one 'over' the total in a game Boston ultimately wins.
