Boston became the first to stop Florida
The Panthers approached the meeting at the TD Garden, not in the best shape. It’s not certain that the Floridians will recover from the shock of coach Joel Quenneville’s sudden retirement before the end of the season. But is that the Bruins’ problem? Florida have won eight straight games since the start of the season, including a 4-1 home win over Boston, ahead of the meeting with Bruce Cassidy’s team.
As in Florida, the Bruins dominated and opened the scoring in the first period. They also struggled in the second period when the Panthers took advantage of their bench strength by switching venues. As a result, Boston found themselves in the scoring position in the third quarter and managed to escape only 6.5 minutes before the final buzzer, when Charlie McAvoy converted a power-play shot from the blue line. The game was tied at 2-2, with scoreless overtime and a shootout in which Linus Ullmark did not miss a shot, and Charlie Coyle made the winning save. A hard-fought but momentous win for Boston. But what other wins should a legendary team have?
Detroit had given up chances in Montreal before the game
The fact is that in their second away game of the season against the Canadiens, Detroit could not count on not only Tyler Bertuzzi, who is ineligible for Canada because of his unvaccinated status, but also Dylan Larkin, who missed the game for personal reasons. Lucas Raymond had to operate with his unfamiliar partners Fabbri and Rasmussen in the first line, and the Wings failed to score a single puck in a 3-0 loss. The loss was Jeff Blashill third in a row. Before Montreal, Detroit lost 4-5 to Toronto and narrowly missed out on a 2-3 home win over Florida in overtime.
Expert Betting Tips
Detroit are an uncomfortable opponent for the Bruins. Jeff Blashill has learned something about Bruce Cassidy’s team’s playing style and regularly gives Boston problems. Why shouldn’t the Red Wings play their best against the Bruins this time too? A potential absence of Dylan Larkin could hinder the final victory, but at least it seems that Detroit won’t miss much. The Red Wings have been too selfless this season. And a poor outing by Toronto-Montreal motivates the players to put in a doubly zealous defense.
We predict that Detroit will confirm their status as an uneasy opponent for the Boston Bruins.
