Last weekend was filled with battles of the titans of the league so far, whereas this Saturday has more mismatches. Unfortunately, a lot of those mismatches don’t pay out very well, so it’s more fun to find some better options. Let’s get right into it!
Two teams that have been playing great hockey for a long time now face off, and overall, I think the Bruins are a vastly better team. Not only have they been at the top of the league by all the important team metrics all season long, they’re finally on a real hot streak with their top guns firing on all cylinders. Brad Marchand especially has been tearing teams to shreds.
However, Nashville has been subverting expectations all season long, and their record is every bit as strong as Boston’s for a reason. The heater the Bruins are on and home-ice advantage have them heavily favoured in this one, so why not let it ride on the Predators, who are 13-6-2 on the road this season?
Despite betting on the Predators to win, the Bruins won’t be going down without a fight, and Marchand has been unstoppable lately.
The 33-year-old agitator has 10 points in his last four games, and is now on pace for 116 points this season. Apparently Bradley has never heard of an aging curve, because he keeps aging like a fine wine.
After failing to get a point against the Seattle Kraken and busting his 13-game point streak, you could be forgiven for thinking MacKinnon might be cooling off a bit.
You can only stay that red-hot for so long, but going into Friday’s game against the Arizona Coyotes he had rattled off 33 shots in his previous four games. He’s not cooling off, he’s about to get right back to ripping teams up.
There’s just no reason to doubt the scoring ability of this man. Matthews is an absolute machine, has scored in all but three of his previous 15 games played, and is making a case to be the NHL’s most complete player.
Last year’s playoff failure seemed to weigh heavily on the play of a few Maple Leafs at the start of the year, but Matthews has just become even better.
