|Under 5.5 (-167) @ 888sport|
This is a 10* TOTAL OF THE MONTH on the UNDER Bruins/Islanders.
Including their 5-3 win over Pittsburgh to end that opening series, the Islanders have now seen the total go OVER the number in three straight.
That includes Game 2's 4-3 OT victory. New York is ranked No. 2 in the league on the defensive in conceding just 2.23 GPG. It's not that great on the offensive end most nights, averaging 2.71, which ranks 21st.
Boston is in bounce-back mode here in unfriendly territory. The Bruins average 2.93 GPG, which is 14th, while allowing just 2.39, which ranks fifth.
Boston has also seen the total go UNDER the number in eight of its last 11 in trying to revenge an OT home loss against an opponent.
These teams are tied up heading into Game 3. I expect the shift in venue to lead to more of a defensive goaltenders battle tonight.
The play is the UNDER.
Good luck, NP
