Canucks vs. Bruins Betting Analysis

These two clubs, whose rivalry reached peak frenzy in 2011 when they met in the Stanley Cup Finals, meet on Tuesday night in Boston for the first time this season. Of that 2011 team, only Alexander Edler and Chris Tanev are still active on the roster.

The Bruins are an excellent 17-2-9 at home and the ‘Nucks are a very average 13-13-2 on the road. In their last ten games, both teams are 7-2-1. Boston is 15-5 in their previous 20 games.

After tonight, they’ll meet again, this time in Vancouver, on February 22nd.  The Bruins have lost three straight in the series.

Vancouver Canucks

Elias Pettersson scored twice against the Hurricanes, but the Canucks still fell to the Carolina side in a 4-3 shootout loss on Sunday. Thatcher Demko was between the pipes for Vancouver and made 29 saves. That loss ended a five-game winning streak for the Nucks, who have two games left to play on this road trip before heading home to Rogers Arena for a six-game homestand.

J.T. Miller‘s fantastic season was honored on Monday when he was named the NHL’s Third Star of the Week. He’s gotten seven points in four games to earn that title, and his 53 points so far this season bring him just five points away from beating his career best.

The Canucks are holding their lead on the Pacific Division with 65 points in 53 games.

Boston Bruins

The Bruins are rolling just in time to host the Pacific-leading Canucks on Tuesday night.

This team has won each of their two games since coming back from the break, beating the Jets in Winnipeg 2-1 and following it up the next night with an absolute beatdown – 6-1 – of the Minnesota Wild. Last Tuesday they took out the Golden Knights 3-2.

Boston’s Torey Krug got two goals and two assists in the game against the Wild, and David Pastrnak scored his 38th goal of the night to keep his NHL lead alive and match his career high.

The Bruins have won four of their last five matchups. They are just a point behind the Washington Capitals for first place in the Eastern Conference.
