Bruins minus $1.20 at Senators

What does it say when the Bruins are favored in this Game 1 despite being on the road and losing all four regular-season meetings to the Senators?

It tells us the oddsmaker believes Boston is the superior team. I agree.

The Bruins are the more experienced playoff team, have the better goalie in Tukka Rask over Craig Anderson and hold huge edges in special teams. The Bruins are the top penalty-killing unit in the NHL. They also ranked seventh in power play scoring percentage. Ottawa rates 22nd in penalty killing and 23rd in power play scoring percentage.

Boston is better, too, offensively. Brad Marchand and David Pastmak are the two best goal scorers in the game. The Senators were held to just 28 goals during their last 15 games.

The Bruins are much better since Bruce Cassidy took over going 20-8-1 since then.

Yes, Ottawa did go 4-0 versus the Bruins in the regular season but each of those games could have gone either way. Now, when the pressure really is on, I see the Bruins prevailing.

In addition to this sides play, I have a Double Star Stanley Cup total for Wednesday. It can be found here with the rest of my plays and packages: http://pregame.com/pregamepros/pro-bettor/bettor.aspx?id=7746#capper.

As always, let's have no bad beats!

Say it ain't so Stephen...We are on opposite sides here,might have to strap on the blades and put on the foil and settle this one on one(That was a lucky punch,you caught me taking off my helmet).Well at least one damn good capper is going to win.

Bruins missing 2 key D men, Krug out for series,Carlo out at least gm1, likely longer. IMO Anderson is the better goalie, Bos could be in trouble here

I can't say I would be shocked if this series were to go seven games.

Nice call on my Bruins. Newly signed D McAvoy played his first NHL game and was a star. Played 24 mins, 2nd most ice time behind Charas 25.
