Carolina had an excellent regular season and looked clear favorites against Boston. After all, the Hurricanes crushed the Bears all three times. The opening quarterfinals continued the trend as the Red and Black outscored their opponents twice, 5:1 and 5:2, but they could not extend their lead, with two losses (2:4 and 2:5). In the fifth game, the team again left the Black and Yellow with a 5:1 lead, but on the road, they were again down at 2:5. The series returns for a decisive seventh meeting in Raleigh.
Boston is once again proving to us that experience plays a huge part in the playoffs. In their current state, the Bears are seriously inferior to Carolina in terms of skill level, as we saw in the regular season. Still, in the cup battles, Bruce Cassidy's charges continue to find the keys to success. During their encounter with the Hurricanes, they had to pull back, but the Black-Yellows did so with honor all three times. Even in the games where they failed to score, they continued to push, forcing the opponent to turn away. It came down to the decisive seventh battle.
Expert Betting Tips
Carolina and Boston have won the previous six games in the series on home ice. Still, there is no point in translating that statistic to the decisive meeting because Game 7 is an extraordinary story. Cup experience is much more critical here, and the Bears have a lot more of it; some players still remember the club's championship days and know how to win big games. As a result, we'd have to bet on Boston to win the match for 2.79.
The Hurricanes and Bears have scored 39 goals (6.50 goals per game on average) in six games in the playoffs. In a decisive encounter in the seventh, however, the cost of every mistake will be extremely high, so one shouldn't expect a goal extravaganza, and the opponents will undoubtedly focus on defense. With that in mind, we suggest betting on a total under 5.5 for 1.90.
Brad Marchand is having another fantastic season. He scored 80 points (32 goals + 48 assists) in 70 games in the regular season. What's more, he's even improved in the playoffs, with four goals and seven assists in six games already, giving him second place in the goalscoring race. The Canadian is in great form, so it's worth looking at a bet on Brad Marchand's total over 1.5 for 2.4.
