Will Rogers: BRUINS/'CANES: NHL BEST BET!
It wasn't quite the low-scoring game I expected, but the Hurricanes did continue their season-long dominance of the Bruins. The Bruins out-shot the Canes by a wide margin, but Raanta was lights out in net inspite of no previous play-off experience. Carolina is the league's best team on defense, and if Raanta continues with a hot hand, the Canes are going to be very tough to beat. Carolina is very good at home this season and are one team that seems to have no problem scoring on the Bruins. Look for them to go up 2-0 on Wednesday..
Dan Kaiser: NHL LIGHT THE LAMP!
The Boston Bruins dropped their first game of the series and will look to even it tonight. The Hurricanes were in total control in game one, winning 5-1, and have now won all4 games played between the two this season. During the regular season, they scored 3.09 goals a game and scored one goal on 36 shots in game one. Linus Ullmark gave up four goals on 24 shots. He is 0-1-0 in one game with a 4.06 GAA and a .833 save percentage. Carolina put up 3.38 goals during the season and scored five goals on 25 shots in game one. Antti Raanta gave one goal on 36 shots. He is 1-0-0 in one game with a 1.00 GAA and a .972 save percentage.
The Hurricanes have won their last seven games. They have scored at least four goals in seven of their last eight games. The Bruins have given up 21 goals in four games against Carolina. Boston has managed to score just two goals in four games against the Hurricanes. Carolina has shown they are the better team and it will show again tonight.
Tim Michael: NHL TRADE-MARK! > > 77-70 NHL RUN!
The Hurricanes took the 1st game of this series on home ice and I think they are going to make it a 2 game sweep on home ice here in these 1st 2 games of the series. The 1st game in this series wasn't even close with the Hurricanes defeating the Bruins 5-1 and I think this game is going to be very similar. The Hurricanes were on a roll to end the regular season and they came into this 1st series of the postseason very hot with 6 wins in a row and a majority of those wins by 2+ goals. They continued that run in game 1 and I think they are going to continue it again. The Hurricanes have looked great on home ice all year and they really dominated the Bruins without having to take many shots. The Bruins out shot the Hurricanes by 10+ shots yet Raanta was incredible all night, stopping 35/36 shots in that game. Ullmark had a really bad night giving up 4 goals and he only faced 24 shots, stopping 20 of those. The Hurricanes goalkeeping was a big concern coming into the postseason with their starting goalie, Frederik Andersen, out with injury but Raanta has been great all year and if this series comes down to goalkeeping, the Hurricanes are going to win that battle. The Hurricanes looked they came to play with a purpose and I expect them to just keep gaining momentum the deeper they go. I think they are going to dominate the Bruins here again and beat up on them physically on the ice.
